In 2021, it looks like some wedding trends will change where nowadays many people choose to use rich colors. White colors will not be so popular this year because currently yellow and orange hues are in demand. For that, one of the wedding ideas that you can choose this year is a sunflower wedding. Sunflower can bring bright colors to the landscape. At weddings, sunflowers can also create a rustic atmosphere that is so romantic. The combination of bright colors and shapes of this flower is so stylish and can be a statement to your wedding decor.
Also, who doesn’t love sunflower? It is both fun and cool to be combined with other props. Especially for summer or fall wedding, sunflowers bloom beautifully this season. There are so many ways to style the sunflower for your big day. Starting from the bouquet, reception table, ceiling installation, and DIY props to make your wedding stands out. If you are the one who loves sunflowers and want to include them on your big day, here some ideas that will help you plan a sunflower wedding:
Color Palette for Sunflower Wedding Theme
If you are going to plan a sunflower wedding, the most important thing that you have to do is to match the color palette for your wedding decoration. We don’t want to have a wedding that full of yellow that can create a boring nuance. So, we need to combine all the pretty colors together. Combining yellow, orange, and red can be perfect for the fall wedding. The warm and earthy tone reflects the season at its best. However, if you want to create a romantic and classy ambiance think of lavender and white. The combination is pretty simple yet eye-catching. Also, the lavender that has a cool tone will be balanced by yellow the touch of warmth. Together they will make the space cozy.
Rustic Sunflower Wedding Decoration Ideas
Looking for decoration ideas that can level up your sunflower wedding? Rustic and vintage props are perfect ideas to set up your big day. Think of something unique, simple but elegant for example DIY welcome sign, aisle marker, centerpieces, and more. Here some rustic sunflower wedding decoration ideas that you want to steal:
1. Botanical Wedding Sign
First impressions are very important to impress guests. Think of displaying a unique wedding sign. Since we are focusing on the sunflower theme, create a botanical nuance where you can use foliage and sunflower to cover the edge of the board. The more you play green, the lusher it will look like.
2. Vintage Door Seating Chart
Why don’t you try to personalize wedding seating chart with the old door? The DIY seating chart is on-trend lately where you can amaze the guest with your creativity. As options, use an old door or window and use sunflowers to decorate the chart. Whether you want to repaint or keep it that way, it is up to you. Just make sure to accentuate the vintage details.
3. Hanging Photo Display
When it comes to wedding decorations, you need to show your wedding picture to the guests while they are enjoying the celebration. Rather than place it on the table, you can design a romantic display where you can hang the picture with a clothespin. First, plug the poles on the right and left sides. Cover the poles with baby’s breath and add sunflower as a statement to your prop.
4. Simple Wedding Tablescape
A simple wedding tablescapes plays an important role to comfort your guest because most of their time will be spent on their seat. To make your guest less boring, it is a must to set up a pretty tablescape. For sunflower wedding, avoid the overuse of yellow tone. We suggest you combine it with white and lavender for a romantic and clear nuance. Use a white cloth to cover the surface, arrange sunflower, white roses, foliage, and lavender flower (blue-eyed grass, bellflower, geranium, and more) as centerpieces. Don’t forget to place the candle to lighten the space.
5. Fall Wedding Cake
Since you are having a sunflower wedding, we think it would be great if you add little accents of fall vibe with the combination of an orange hue. Ask your pastry chef to design a two-tier cake or even more and decorate the cake with foliage, sunflower, and orange roses. It would make the cake looks so pretty fresh.
6. Sweetheart Table Setting
Do you need an intimate space after the ceremony? Leave some space to set up your sweetheart table where you can enjoy the celebration with your partner. For rustic decoration, surround your sweetheart table with sunflower and take advantage of your garden ware. Use bucket, wooden boxes to place the sunflower. For the centerpieces, you can use a jar as a vase. Hang your fav quote or “Just Married” banner to highlight your spot.

The best way to make your ‘tie the knot’ moment looks memorable is to make your aisle perfect. The wedding aisle will be the focal point where you exchange the vows and take some wedding photos. Therefore, you need to decorate the space with a wedding arch and aisle marker to guide your walk towards the person you love.
