Sunny ideas for a yellow themed wedding day

Yellow. It's such a happy colour. It's the colour of spring and summer. Sunshine. Optimism. Energy.

And it's a fabulous colour for a wedding day (works well for autumn weddings too).

You can go all out with a full yellow wedding theme or co-ordinate with a contrasting colour - bright blue, orange and lime greens all work well. Go for a dazzling sunny hue or keep things more subtle with pastel lemon shades.

First off, let's think about yellow flowers for your wedding day. You've got a very broad choice here. Roses, gerberas, sunflowers, dahlias, chrysanthemums ... there are so many ... talk to your florist about options.

An easy way to DIY your table decorations - just put a happy sunflower in a jam jar, tie with raffia and add some greenery.

Wedding planners have been telling me that cocktail bars are becoming a real trend at weddings and look to be huge in 2014. Talk to your caterer about cocktails that present in yellows - anything pineapple based is a good start! Or you could add a twist of lemon peel to a champagne flute?

Yellow isn't always the first colour you'd think of for a wedding cake but you could use it as a subtle decoration, as in this dainty cake by Rosalind Miller shown above.

Another colour that combines well with yellow is grey - chic and subtle. If you want to add a splash of colour to your wedding look, how about wearing lemon heels that will peep out from beneath your wedding dress?
