Watercolor Wedding Ideas

One of the latest trends in weddings is the watercolor-inspired wedding. The soft pastel hues lend themselves perfectly to wedding decor.

Even if you’re not artistically inclined, you can still be inspired by this romantic design trend.

Flowers in pastel, watercolor hues are a great fit for a watercolor inspired wedding:

Dress your bridesmaids in different shades and hues for a colorful look. You could even consider a wedding dress with a hint of pale pastel or even a coloured dress. Have them all pick out the same style of dress in a variety of colors or variations on the same hue for a subtle wave of color.

Your invitations and stationery can become frame-worthy works of art too. Design and paint them yourself or have an artist or calligrapher custom paint each one. Take inspiration from your favorite scenery, colors and works of art.

Tie die or paint your table linens or table runners to create a stunning watercolor tablescape. Or hang different colored ribbons, garlands or flowers in a watercolor or ombre design. All you need to create these watercolor projects is a few colors of paint and some basic art supplies; whether you go for a refined, restrained look or a creative, abstract look is up to you. Bring out your inner Monet!

As a neat guestbook idea, have your guests create their own work of art for you by laying out art supplies and canvases on your guestbook table. Another neat favor alternative is mini canvases with their own individual paintings for each person.
