Rainbow Bride

By on Feb 11th

Me!!! =DThanks 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.


Rainbow bridesmaids


It's a rainbow explosion for Emily and her ladies. Wigs! Dresses! Giant paper flowers!


Susan's bridesmaids all wore J. Crew dresses in different styles and colors, forming a rainbow. Cuties!


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 gals posing with Reggie's bus in Chicago, proving you only need a few bridesmaids to form a rainbow.


Andrea's crew is sportin' rainbow from top to toes, even in their makeup choice! And who doesn't love those HUGE bouquets?!

Tribe member Lila made this towering rainbow cake herself. Here's a tutorial for a similar cake, in case this flips your switch.

Nicole made these flowers from repurposed filter papers that were used in her lab.


Kara & John's "Taste the Rainbow" Skittles wedding HAD to include a Skittles-themed centerpiece. Behold the result!


When in need of a good send-off, flags and ribbons are perfect for a no-clean up celebratory exit.
