Rainbows symbolize good fortune, happiness, and hope. So it's no surprise that the ROY G BIV palette has become an increasingly popular way to add a bright, festive touch to weddings. But pulling off a stylish (not cheesy) event that reflects the color spectrum can be tricky—we suggest keeping it casual, crafty, and playful (and avoiding tie-dye at all costs).
Create a multicolored effect by dressing your bridesmaids in every shade of ROY G BIV!
For a more subtle approach, put your bridesmaids in neutral-colored dresses (think black, cream, gray), and have them each accessorize with a different color of the rainbow. These 'maids wore heels in saturated tones and each carried a parasol in a matching hue. (The bride's cascade bouquet incorporated all of the colors.)
The groomsmen can each wear a tie in a different color (and matching sunglasses if it's sunny out).
For a simple ceremony setup, hang paper lanterns in all the colors of the rainbow from a tree above the ceremony area.
