A sunflower wedding theme is the perfect choice for a couple looking to have a wedding day filled with the wonders of nature and colours that amaze and delight. There is nothing more colourful than the large and regal sunflower plant. With shades of yellow, orange, red, black and green – it is a multitude of hues that never disappoint.
Sunflowers, first grown in Central and South America, were originally loved for their practical aspects such as providing seeds and oils. When they came to America, they became a wonder of natural beauty and we have loved them ever since. Of course, there is many famous artists who painted the sunflower, with the most famous being Sunflowers, a still life by Van Gogh.
A sunflower wedding theme is particularly appropriate in the splendour of autumn, when the colour palate may call for golds and reds. There are so many unique and interesting ways that you can pull off a sunflower wedding theme. You could start with adorable tin sunflowers in yellow to decorate the alter and processional aisle, complemented by white, crimson red or burnt orange pew bows. You may also want to try yellow sunflower mini hand tied bouquets, tied to flower vases, watering cans or metal pails as your table centrepieces, for a casual and country feel.
Perfect for creating impact, Sunflowers can be expensive but, because they are so large, you don’t need many! So add some sunshine to your Italian wedding with lovely Sunflowers!
