If you love green and yellow colours, like I do, this theme is for you!
Perfect time of the year to hold this kind of wedding is in summer when everything is green and yellow sun is shining.
You can have your wedding anywhere you like. I have chosen St. John’s Church in Helsinki. It has great location surrounded by park and beautiful houses. To make the inside of the church to match the theme, put flowers to the seats next to the aisle and you have a beautiful and welcoming walk down the aisle.
Wedding reception could take place in Lodgen Seuraintalo in Espoo, 20 minutes’ drive from the church. There you can decorate how you want and bring your own food and beverages.
The decoration is, of course, based on green and yellow and also white is one of the main colours. Flowers are the main thing in the decoration.
Every wedding has to have some beautiful small details that makes it special. For example you can have small place cards made of old paper and write guests’s names in old-style-writing. If you want to capture the special moments you can ask guests to write their wishes on chalkboard with pastel chalks.
The Food and Beverages
The food can be anything you like because the theme colours are not easy to match with any salty food. But all sweets you can decorate with green and yellow.
For drinks you can have, for example, lemonade and mojito which are refreshing and at the same time the right colours.
The Wedding Attire
The bride is wearing a beautiful white lace wedding dress. The back of the dress could be like in the picture below or fully open up to the waist. The bride has a beautiful bouquet with yellow and white flowers and something green. The bride is wearing pastel green high heels. The groom has a black suit with green tie or if the main colour is yellow he would wear yellow tie.
Bride’s hair is on a loose bun and there are small beautiful hair decors. Nails are beautifully decorated, the necklace resembles flowers and the earrings have different shades of green. Bridesmaids could wear yellow or green dresses depending on what is the main colour.
The married couple could transfer from church to the wedding reception with this cute old yellow car. After the party they can drive away and live happily ever after.
