Embrace the rainbow theme
The rainbow is a well-known symbol of the LGBTQ+ community, so why not brighten up your wedding ceremony and reception? Here’s how:
- Rainbow wedding flowers – ask your florist to create bouquets in rainbow colours or opt for dyed flowers in a rainbow hue.
- Rainbow confetti – get you hands on some rainbow confetti. This is hugely popular during Pride festivals and can be easily found online.
- Rainbow hair accessories – from rainbow floral fascinators to glittery rainbow hairclips, there are many ways to brighten up your look.
- Rainbow flags – how about walking down an aisle lined with rainbow flags?
- Rainbow fans – if you’re getting married in the summer, giving all guests a rainbow hand fan as they arrive could be a unique and memorable touch.
- Rainbow sunglasses – similarly, for outside ceremonies, rainbow sunglasses could be a fun addition to your wedding attire
- Rainbow bracelets – these can be worn by everyone at the ceremony to show support for your wedding or handed out as part of wedding favour packs.
- Rainbow lapel pins – if you want to include the rainbow in a more subtle way, badges and lapel pins are a wonderfully classy touch.
- Rainbow cake – there are numerous ways to do this. Either you opt for opulent rainbow icing. Or you can have your cake iced more traditionally but include rainbow layers than can be seen when you cut a slice.
- Rainbow pinata – if you’re planning outside activities and games at your reception, a rainbow pinata could be a fun idea.
