Ling’s new color palette brings a thirst-quenching nod to refreshing citrus with a sweet twist. Let’s explore how our Lemonade Yellow wedding color palette can inspire your seaside wedding style.

Is yellow a good color for a wedding?

It’s hard not to be happy when you’re surrounded by sunny, bright yellow, and that feeling translates well to a wedding color that fills you and your guests with joy. Yellow is also a versatile color that can be utilized in many ways throughout your wedding day, from flowers and favors to linens and lanterns.

Sunny yellow is absolutely a wonderful color for wedding decor and an especially good choice for spring weddings. Think about how much happiness those first yellow daffodils bring when they peek through the cold, snowy ground in early spring — a yellow wedding theme evokes that same feeling of newness, hope, and delight. 

Other yellow flowers that fit right into weddings with a yellow theme include airy buttercups, romantic roses, sweet daisies, and elegant peonies. You can also incorporate yellow in other ways, like in your bridal party attire or the color of your cake. Whether you go all-in on yellow or prefer pops of color here and there, yellow wedding colors are always a good choice.

What does the color yellow mean in a wedding?

If you’re looking for more significance in your decor, consider traditional and cultural influences for added depth of meaning in your yellow wedding color palette. Generally speaking, the symbolism of the color yellow involves youthfulness, spontaneity, creativity, and happiness — all good things when it comes to celebrating a wedding. 

And while you can certainly coordinate colors to assign special meaning to your day, it’s okay to have a yellow wedding theme just because you like the way it looks, too. It’s your day, so customize it however you like!

What colors pair well with yellow for a wedding? 

Yellow is a statement color on its own, so try pairing it with complementary shades that let the bright, happy shade really shine.

Luckily, we make it easy for you to bring a little yellow into your life. Our Lemonade Yellow collection starts with a creamy yellow and French yellow and blends it with ivory, white, scallion green, and emerald for a perfectly fresh and vibrant color blend.

Other ways to incorporate color pairings into a yellow wedding theme include looking to the opposite side of the color wheel for shades of blue. Think about the complementary colors of the sun and the sea, and how they bring out the best in each other.

Yellow wedding colors to brighten up your ceremony

For your wedding ceremony, you’ve chosen a cozy clearing surrounded by an old-growth olive grove. In the distance, a glimmer of bright blue sea peeks out through the picturesque soaring landscape. The salty breeze on a warm, sunny afternoon adds to the ambiance as you prepare to say “I do.”

After the guests make their way through the gardens, taking in the scents of rosemary and lavender, they’re greeted by a rustic welcome sign atop a vintage easel. Dark wood brings out the brightness of the surrounding yellow florals, and a scattering of fresh lemons and cozy candles set the mood for the day’s events.

In keeping with the natural elements included in your wedding decor, wicker cane-backed chairs are set up on either side of the aisle for your guests. Each chair features a delicate hanging arrangement of greenery and cheerful flowers that tie in the yellow wedding theme and elevate the ambiance of the wedding space.

The focal point of your ceremony space is a wooden triangle arch decorated with lush florals and draped fabric in soft shades of yellow. At the base, rustic lanterns and pillar candles surround the base of the arch for an extra romantic touch.  A wicker rug creates a cozy space for you and your partner to stand while you grab hands, gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes, and say your handwritten vows.

After the ceremony, you and your guests head back toward the main house of the seaside estate. Taking advantage of the fresh air and beautiful weather, you’ve set up space on the sprawling terrace to dine, dance, and enjoy each other’s company as you celebrate through sunset and beyond. 

For your green and yellow wedding decor, you’ve kept things light and fresh, bringing in natural fibers like wicker to add coziness. As the sun goes down, vintage-style string lights illuminate swooping vines covering the overhead pergola above the dining space. It’s comfortable and romantic, creating the perfect space to gather with the ones you love.

Set slightly apart, but within full view of the reception area, your romantic sweetheart table resembles a decadent garden, It overflows with a flower garland made of greenery and lush yellow flowers draping to the floor. It’s a special place for you both to enjoy a meal and sneak a few kisses before getting back to mingling with your guests.

The dessert table looks like an enchanted garden, with a mixture of low and high flower arrangements giving an airy, natural feel. The lemon-flavored cake is topped with a minimalist simple white frosting and freshly sliced lemon. Scattered throughout the foliage are tempting plates of biscotti and macarons for sweet snacking, with decorative bags so guests can take some home as a sweet send-off.
