A Lemon Wedding

by | Bride, Wedding Inspiration


I feel like I can smell lemons today- the fresh smell of lemon butter cooking on the stove. Which of course, brings me to weddings. The yummy, bright lemon yellow colour can be such a gorgeous addition to your wedding colour palette.


Lemon Centrepiece from theknot

A bowl of lemons, or lemons pulled together in the centre of the table make a fabulous centrepiece. They give off a fresh citrus smell and the no fuss factor creates a bold look.



Such sweet yellow bridesmaids from J.Crew (dear J.Crew, please bring this range to Australia!)

Yellow on bridesmaids is so summery- some beautiful white flowers or green orchids tied with green ribbon would really make these pop! Winter brides can team them with a bright citrus orange or even chocolate brown. For an understated look- black and white with yellow is a stunning combination!!

Love the use of lemons with green! Lemons used as a placecards is cheap and cheery!

Yellow flowers- often calla lilies, orchids, roses, tulips and gerberas suit any season and are such a beautiful vibrant addition to a wedding.

    I love lemon, it’s actually my colour along with the polka dots 🙂 Here’s another idea for anyone who’s interested: slice lemons and laying them in the clear glass vase you’re using for your flowers as a centerpiece, covering the whole glass area. it looks gorgeous… my florist is doing this for my wedding… it brings in the lemon theme and smells gorgeous 🙂 I do have picture examples if anyone wants to see 🙂

    Love it!
