Unicorns, confetti, & rainbow cake: the colorful wedding inspiration we all deserve

When we heard about “confetti pong” in this shoot, we knew we were in for something colorful. Little did we know that this colorful wedding inspiration would have unicorns galore, a rainbow cake, super trendy unicorn toasts, pastel macarons, hair glitter, face paint, and some of the most fabulous glitter-meets-rainbow wedding fashion ever. There are ideas to steal for everyone (dapper brides included!).

Don’t miss the triangle color explosion invitations, the unicorn hot chocolates, and the mismatched decor of all our dizziest daydreams…

Toss colorful pom-poms instead of rice after your ceremony (and more ways to use them!)

Do you know what Annie and Jose totally needed at their ceremony under towering redwood trees? A bunch of colorful poms poms to toss for a killer photo-op. They’re cheap, easy to clean up (make sure you’re delegating that to someone to keep the venue clean!), and totally adorable in their little baggies.

Everything you need for a rad confetti bar

We’ve talked about lots of rice tossing alternatives like flowers, lavender, seeds, lanterns, and sparklers, but sometimes you just want to see a giant display of good ol’ confetti. Having a confetti bar with scoopable confetti and favor bags is an awesome way to let your guests take a little favor and make sure they have the means to shower you with their symbolic love.
