Thanks to Offbeat Families reader and mommy blogger Laura for letting us know about this colorful bride Megan (love the name) and her rainbow themed wedding in a public park in Nevada City, California. Megan tells me that it was all planned and carried out in a matter of three weeks. And that's from proposal to wedding!
Megan sez: "I LOVE colors, as you can see from my photos. I made my dress 100% from scratch all by myself. I wanted it to be very colorful and ruffly so that's what I did. I also made my little top hat because I didn't really want to make a veil, as my hair was already colorful enough and I didn't want to cover that up."
For even MOAR rainbow wedding madness, click here and check out the selection of rainbow stylings below:
Rainbow dresses and crinoline
Brooke has the rainbow crinoline thing down. She's got everything else pure white and just a few inches of colorful tulle peeking out.
Anya went the whole nine yards with a rainbow dress, rainbow bouquet, rainbow ribbon veil, and the sweetest little rainbow parasol.
Stephanie & Charlie had all kinds of eclectic things happening at their "Mystery House" wedding, but the highlight was the multi-tiered, ribbon and tulle dress. Cheers to that, indeed.
It's a rainbow explosion for Emily and her ladies. Wigs! Dresses! Giant paper flowers!
Jenn and Sarah's "rainbow-fairy-sparkle" wedding featured a whole array of color for their eight bridesmaids. And rainbow wings make my heart happy!

Rainbow flowers and decor
Liz had these gorgeous rainbow roses mixed in with deeply-hued flowers in her bouquet. Here's how you can grow your own rainbow roses.
Liz also had these awesome rainbow tulip glasses for her guests. I wouldn't want to separate them.
