6 Fresh Ways to Use Watercolors Throughout Your Wedding

Wedding Style & Decor

Since tomorrow marks the first official day of spring, we're showcasing one of our favorite wedding-style trends that we're sure will be popular straight through the summer: watercolors.

Romantic watercolor wedding invitations have been popular amongst brides to be for months, but now we're starting to see couples take that soft-yet-modern style and extend it to the rest of their décor. And the results are amazing.

If you love the idea of incorporating trendy watercolors throughout your wedding ceremony and reception, then you're in luck: We found six of ways to make them work for your big day.

Ceremony Programs
Just like watercolors are popular for wedding invitations, they're the perfect option for the rest of your bridal stationery. We love this purple fan-shaped program, seen above, but you could recreate the look with other hues or on a different style of paper.

Escort Cards
Simple watercolor accents upgrade the classic rectangular escort card into something more unexpected.

Table Runners
This fabric runner is the perfect addition to the dark wood table and is a more unexpected way to try the trend.

Place Settings
This classic white dinner plate gets a fun upgrade thanks to a watercolor napkin and matching pink-dipped flatware.

Wedding Cake
Watercolor wedding cakes are ideal for spring, especially when they're this pretty! We love the soft pink-and-peach hues of this single-tiered confection.

Favor Packaging
No matter what favor you select, package it up with watercolor tags for a token guests won't leave behind. These mini bags of local coffee and candy look extra inviting thanks to their his-and-hers labeling.
