Choosing a colour palette for your wedding is the ideal place to start in your preparations and there can be no better palette for creating an incredible impact than a rainbow colour theme. It’s a theme that has become more and more popular in recent years and when you look at some examples, it’s not hard to see why! The stunning effect a selection of carefully placed technicolour props and little touches can completely transform your wedding day into a bright, vivid colourful celebration that is a feast for the eyes.

As a wedding planner with years of experience behind me, I know all the tips and tricks to help bring a rainbow theme to life, whether it be an all-out colour-fest, or a few vivid bright pops, I’ve got the insider knowledge to make it happen. If you’d like to chat in more detail about your wedding needs, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


From ribbons, to curtains, to ceiling draping and everything in between, this is a fantastic way to completely change the look and feel of your wedding venue. Think about using a mix of colours and placements. Think about having draping on your venue entrance, or ribbon style draping from the ceiling or above the tables. It can also make for a stunning background for your photos.

Bunting, Pompoms & Paper Lanterns

These are a relatively cheap way to inject some serious colour and fun into your wedding day. The great thing about these paper accessories is that for the most part you can put them together yourself and if you buy in bulk you make a great saving. They are also super versatile, the sky is the limit in terms of how you use them. Everything from hanging pompoms or lanterns from the ceiling, to using them as mock flowers, to backdrops, to chair décor, to stringing up bunting, the possibilities are endless.

Table Décor

There’s nothing like walking into a wedding venue and being wowed by some vivid and inspiriting table décor.  Everything from bright or contrasting table cloths, china, menus, chair sashes, ribbons and even individual coloured table lighting can make for an incredible impact that will wow your guests.

Food and Drink

If you want to have subtle pops of rainbow colour in your wedding day, then using food and drinks is a really inventive way to do it. Think about having a technicolour wedding cake, macaroons, cupcakes or cake pops for the guests. A pink lemonade station is ideal for a summer wedding or think about old fashioned cordials with vivid colours. Think about candy coloured apples and popcorn and of course a sweet station is the idea way to inject some colour into the day.


The most straightforward way to inject some Technicolor brights into your day is with your choice of flowers. From the bride’s and bridesmaids bouquets, to the flowers on the tables and around the room, you can really have fun with your choices. You can save a bundle by going for multi-coloured mason jars and single rainbow posies on the tables too!
