Rainbow themed weddings set for 2013

Rainbow themed weddings are set to be big in 2013, according to weddingelation.com. Brides are refusing to stick to one colour and are mixing it up instead.

The most common way of having this rainbow theme is by using the bridesmaids; having each of them dressed in a bright colour off-sets the white of the bridal gown, ensuring the bride stays the centre of attention.

Couples looking for a wedding reception venue may find they want to add in rainbow touches to the decorations. Brightly coloured ribbons and streamers are set to be popular, with balloons and even multi-coloured sweets being turned into centrepieces.

Ijustsaidyes.com reports that groomsmen will adopt the rainbow trend with colourful bowties and even multi-coloured shoes. Layered, exposed sponge cakes create a unique splash of colour to a wedding and can take centre-stage at the reception.

In keeping with the trend, wedding planners are looking at plain, simple event spaces to host the reception to ensure the colour theme gets maximum impact and doesn’t clash with the surroundings.

Brides may want to find something unusual for their dress and unexpected splashes of colour look set to appear on dresses this year. A brightly coloured sash is just one way to give a subtle nod to the rainbow trend, perfect for brides who don’t want to overload with colour.
