The real beauty of this theme is its versatility. We think of watercolor mostly as a paint-on-canvas creation, and it definitely works well for more paper-based elements like invitations, escort cards, and linens.

However, there’s a real opportunity to get creative within this theme. Tie-dyed dresses done with beautiful pastel colors and perfectly matched bouquets? Yes please!

Check out the creative way one bride incorporated watercolor into her cake – a contemporary three-tiered cake covered with smooth fondant accented with colorful swirls to look just like an abstract watercolor painting. Gorgeous!

Don’t forget the bridal party! Tie dye may not be for everyone, but there are other options – namely, ombre.

Ombre is a hot trend seen in fashion that takes one color and focuses on all its shades, graduating from light to dark.

It’s just like watercolors!

Pick your favorite colors and invite the special people in your life to dress in various shades, then mix them up and enjoy the simple yet elegant artistic appearance.
