Have you always dreamt of getting married on a nice sunny day? Sadly, weather can’t be guaranteed could you always choose wedding decor carefully, to bring sunshine vibes in, even if the skies are grey. Sunflowers are a great design element for couples who love summer. Let’s have a look at a few examples of how the sunflower wedding theme can be brought to life.

Wrapping burlap or raffeta around the stems will give the bouquet a rustic look. Satin ribbon would be also an excellent choice, especially if the wedding scheme includes colours such as royal blue or dark pink.
As sunflowers are strong and enduring, in many cultures they represent strength and loyalty. And as they turn towards the sun, these blooms remind us that we should always look at the positive side of life.
But let’s talk about bridesmaids. Bridesmaids jewellery pieces with sunflowers look very special. We love this bracelet, with the card “You are My Sunshine”. Bridesmaids often fill the wedding party with laughter and sunshine so a bracelet such as this one would be very fitting. Although sparkly jewellery sets are wonderful, it is often items such as handmade bracelets that make the wedding unique. We all know that only one lucky lady will be able to catch the bouquet. Maybe being gifted a bracelet with a sunflower which is similar to those in the wedding flower arrangements might feel as special as catching the bouquet?

Flowergirl Sunflower Hair Clips
Most flowergirls have a guaranteed “cuteness overload” factor whatever they wear but a pretty hair decoration might be just the perfect finishing touch.
A flower clip could be also the perfect thank you gift and a beautiful keepsake the little princess can take home with her.
This clip could be also attached to a page boy’s shirt pocket or to a hat.
Sunflower Sugarcraft Decorations
Sunflower-shaped cookies could also double up as wedding favours and could be placed in transparent pouches with a ribbon and a name tag. Or, even better, the guest names could be written in icing.
To give you an idea of what sugarcraft decorations could look like and how easy they can be to make, we have included a photo of a set of sunflower plunger cutters in this article.
Yellow Bridesmaids Gowns
Yellow bridesmaid dresses look stylish and tend to look less formal than let’s say navy gowns. Many yellow bridesmaids dresses are made from soft, flowing fabric that will look gorgeous in summer breeze.
Yellow bridesmaids dresses will look beautiful when combined with either silver or gold accessories.
And did you know that sunflowers can be used for dying fabric? It would be the seeds rather than the yellow petals that were used in ancient times for dying fabrics. So maybe this might not bring a ray of sunshine to your wedding but might be an interesting project to try some other time.
Wedding Favours with Sunflower Seeds
You can probably already picture all your guests planting sunflowers in their gardens, cherishing the memories of your special day.
As other types of wedding favours, “Let Love Grow” packages can be personalised with the newlyweds’ names, the date of the wedding and could also have an additional message, such as “Thank you for sharing our special day with us.”
Plantable favours are the perfect choice for eco-conscious couples.
Unity Wedding Candle with Sunflowers
Wedding candle represents unity of the new Mr. & Mrs. And there are many similar traditions. For example, in some cultures, it is common to mix coloured sand, also to represent unity.
Ceremonies like these don’t need to be too official. You could decorate your candle with small fabric sunflowers and raffia ribbon or you could get a candle with printed sunflower graphics. And you if are using sand, how about using bright yellow sand in the mix?
Printed Invites with Sunflowers
The invites could be placed into white or yellow envelopes. In either way, your wedding guests will get the first taste of what the wedding atmosphere will be like… filled with love and sunshine.
Hand painted sunflowers look very artistic and will look perfect on invites when used together with modern calligraphy fonts.
