If you’re looking for ideas on how to use sunflowers in your wedding decor, you’re in the right place. Here are 10 beautiful sunflower wedding designs using Ling’s moment’s beautiful silk (see silk flowers for wedding) and foam flowers.

Sunflower wedding color palettes

Before we go over our sunflower wedding ideas, let’s talk quickly about color palettes. 

Sunflowers tend to work well with other warm colors. We’re particularly fond of pairing sunflowers and burgundy tones together. Burgundy’s richness creates a fantastic contrast with the warm sunflowers. It’s perfect for autumn weddings, or brides who desire a bold look.

On the other hand, sunflowers can also pair well with light colors, like white and cream. You can use a softer color palette to create a more airy atmosphere that’s perfect for summer weddings.

Different floral arrangements used for wedding ceremony

It all depends on the look you’d like to create for your wedding day.

A wedding sign is one of the first things your guests will see when they arrive at your ceremony. Make them feel welcome by adding some bright sunflowers to your signage. This rustic wooden wedding sign uses sunflowers to add a pop of color to the design. It’s a wonderful way to set the tone for your ceremony with a striking, elegant style.

Lanterns can add a dreamy quality to your wedding lighting. You can hang them from trees as a gorgeous backdrop, set them on tables as centerpieces, or line the aisle with them to guide the bride. It’s an underrated and creative way to elevate the ambient lighting for both your ceremony and reception. 

Make your lanterns extra bright by adding sunflowers. You can tie them to your lanterns with ribbons for an effortless design that’s sure to look picture-perfect.
