Stunning Yellow Design Inspiration for Your Wedding Day

Yellow might not be the first color you imagine when thinking of your wedding day — we get it, it can be hard to picture yellow décor that doesn’t instantly take you back to grade school. But trust us when we say yellow can be an undeniably chic addition to your wedding color palette. From moody and ethereal to bright and bold, here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate yellow into your event design.

Ok, can you say FASHION?! This incredible styled shoot photographed by SoCal photographer Carmen Lopez proves that yellow can indeed be stylish AF. The warm, mustardy yellow jacket layered over the marigold skirt by Sweet Caroline is perfect for the desert setting.

If you’re looking for a wedding cake that makes a statement, this is it! Bold, bright, and sculptural, this monochromatic stunner designed by Sweet Heather Anne and florist Susan McLeary features a free-standing cascade of yellow flowers that can be used in a variety of ways then easily removed when it’s time to cut the cake.

Aren’t these mini limoncello favors absolutely darling? These sweet gifts, styled to perfection by Fox Events, were a reference to the Amalfi Coast, where the couple got engaged.

Sometimes with yellow less is more, and we love the earthy sage and delicate pop of color on this understated floral wedding invitation by Open Air Paper.

This look is a D.R.E.A.M! Part of Millia London’s colorful spring 2023 bridal collection, the “Kate” corset bralette and tulle full length ruffle skirt in pastel yellow are accented with jewel details on the straps and waistband. We are in L.O.V.E.

We live for a shoe moment! Heels or sneakers, we’ll take one of each, please! These Sergio Rossi x AREA mimosa yellow crystal embellished satin sandals are truly a work of art and would look major styled with a high-slit wedding gown. Paired with the groom’s suit, a bright yellow pair of Nike Air Max sneaks are the perfect way to tie in your color theme while showing some personality.
