June is LGBT Pride Month, and we at Fusion Photography figured it was time to talk a little bit about LGBT weddings—specifically, how to add rainbow pops of color without going overboard. Read on for our tips, and prepare for a colorful wedding with your spouse-to-be.
One of the easiest ways to add color to your LGBT wedding is via flowers. The great thing about flowers is you basically have a rainbow of colors at your
fingertips. If your wedding colors are blue, purple, or other cool shades, there are plenty of blossoms to choose from. If your wedding leans toward
oranges, reds, and pinks, you’re covered.
Make Your Feet Happy
Who said white shoes are a must-have when it comes to weddings? Add some color to your ensemble by wearing a pair of richly hued shoes. Not only will this make your LGBT wedding pop with color, but it will also give you an opportunity to express your personality…through what’s on your feet.
Your Centerpieces Should Shine
Table centerpieces are ideal for injecting rainbow touches to your LGBT wedding reception. And you aren’t limited to flowers, as pictured. You can go for goldfish in a bowl with colored stones, tendrils of ivy, groups of gorgeous succulents, floating candles…the list goes on and on.
Colorful Jewelry for Subtlety
If you want to go the traditional route for your wedding with your partner, that’s all right by us! It’s your wedding, after all. But if you still want
to add some subtle color, one way to do so is through the jewelry you wear. An added bonus? Choose blue jewelry and this could be your “something blue.”
Pretty Pops of Color on Your Cake
Your cake doesn’t have to be completely white—quite the contrary. One way couples can add color to their delicious wedding cakes is by adding edible flowers here and there. Or if you’d rather go all in, talk to your baker about making the frosting of your cake one of your wedding colors. Chances are, they’ll do what they can to satisfy you—including producing a kickass blue-, purple-, pink-, or other-colored cake.
Lighting Can Do Wonders
If you’d prefer to keep things simple and not amped up with the whole gamut of colors available, think about this for your LGBT wedding: lighting. As you can see in the above photograph, blue lighting changes gold hues into gorgeous blue-tinted, metallic wonders. Just about any color lighting can be achieved, so be sure to talk to your wedding venue about their lighting options. If they’re unable to produce the color lighting you want, don’t fret—there are plenty of lighting specialists who would love to help you out.
These are just six ways to add rainbow touches of color to your LGBT wedding. Celebrate LGBT Pride Month with a colorful wedding, and remember that this is your big day. The sky’s the limit.
