Rainbow Wedding Inspiration

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Mix a little sprinkle and a little sun…and you’ve got yourself a rainbow! Mix a little ingenuity, a little DIY, and lot of bright rainbow-inspired color, and you’ve got yourself a brilliant wedding palette. Talk to your wedding planner about ideas on how to include pops of rainbow color to your decor, cake, or flowers, whether fresh or paper, like the gorgeous creations in pic #2 below by Balushka Paper Floral Artistry! If you’re feelin’ this trend too, go ahead and pin some of your faves.
