Wedding Attire

Feature yellow accents upon the bridal, groom and wedding party attire. Add a yellow silk sash to a white wedding dress or carry a bought of yellow flowers. Give the groom and groomsmen yellow boutonnieres to wear on their lapels. Dress the bridesmaid in yellow gowns or dresses trimmed in yellow. Have the flower girl wear a wreath of yellow flowers in her hair paired with an adorable yellow lace dress. Give the ring bearer a yellow pillow to carry golden wedding rings.


Flowers often play an important role in weddings in the form of the bridal bouquet, boutonnieres, reception centerpieces and ceremony decor. Choose from a plethora of yellow flowers for your wedding. Wedding favorites include the daffodils, sunflowers, roses, lilies, tulips, marigolds, daisies, zinnias, freesias, honeysuckle and gerberas. Flower colors range from soft pastels to bright golden yellow.

Ceremony Decorations

Decorate your ceremony with yellow to set the theme and mood of your wedding. The first thing your guests will at your wedding venue see is the entryway; greet them with a yellow floral arrangement alongside a yellow sign-in guest book. Beautify your ceremony with yellow organza bows on the backs of chairs and the sides of pews. Add golden foil accents to your wedding program. Roll out a colorful yellow runner to walk down the aisle. Get creative by marrying under a lemon tree.

Yellow Reception  

Celebrate at your reception adorned with yellow style. Illuminate the tables with glowing yellow candle centerpieces or fresh floral arrangements. Spread yellow tablecloths over tables, paying special attention to the couple’s table by adding yellow twinkling lights. Sprinkle golden glitter or yellow confetti atop all the reception tables. Have fun dancing to tunes with the color yellow in the title such as Mellow Yellow, Yellow Submarine, Good-bye Yellow Brick Road and Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.

Wedding Cake

Serve a delicious yellow wedding cake, starting from the inside to the out. Yellow wedding cake flavors include the classic yellow cake and lemon. Adorn your cake with yellow fondant, buttercream, royal icing or marzipan. Add yellow decorations such as sugary confectionery flowers to your wedding cake. Almost all yellow wedding cakes feature white in the form of vanilla or coconut as an accent. Create a yellow wedding topper that looks like the newlyweds.
