5 Ways to Bring Bright Marigold into Your Wedding

Former Forever First Lady Michelle Obama didn’t create the color marigold with her 2016 State of the Union dress, but it’s definitely stuck around! It’s complementary to most skin tones and is a perfect addition to your spring wedding color palette. Here are 5 ways to incorporate the color into your day.

1. This Leanne Marshall Wedding Gown

Picture it! It’s sunset on a breezy evening in May. There isn’t a drop of humidity in the sky. The air is perfumed with the scent of jasmine and cedar. This dress hits the sunlight like a beam from heaven. Diseases are cured. Wars end. Global hunger is eradicated. Systems of oppression fall. Prejudice disappears. Madonna stops giving tributes to black legends at award shows. She’d just stop, y’all. Humanity forms a more perfect society. So ask yourself, why wouldn’t you want this dress?!

2. This Luxurious Marigold Bouquet

Eucalyptus has made itself the go-to green filler of bouquets and nothing pops off of that color like a bright orange. The mix of the two as seen in this bouquet by Mr. Caballero Creative grounds the vibrance to give it a light, romantic feel.

3. These Wooden Heeled Pumps by Queen Anna

Nothing says “I’m out here!” like an architectural concept on your feet. These shoes from Queen Anna are durable, comfortable, and edgy. They make a statement! Pair this with a lace sheath dress for people to get the full affect.

4. This Retro Bowtie from The Tie Bar

If you paired this with a deep emerald suit you’d have instant rockstar status! The colors complement each other like a spring day, crisp in the morning and warm by the end of the day.

5. These Magnificent Marigold Arrangements by New Rose Floral

These simple and understated arrangements created by New Rose Floral Design inspire the feeling of a cozy Sunday afternoon. They’ll look bright and inviting before sunset and ultra romantic at dusk with the candles lit.

Invite a little marigold into your wedding and set the tone for a bright, airy day!
