LOVE/HATE: The ‘Taste the Rainbow’ Edition

Rainbow weddings? Multicolored wedding flowers? Attendants with mismatched accessories? Sure, why not. But the question I put forward to you today is “Can the rainbow wedding theme be taken too far?” Judging by the Kermit featured prominently in this photo from Tacky Weddings, my guess is that this particular wedding had a Rainbow Connection theme. Which is great – everyone should have the wedding that they want to have. Doesn’t mean it necessarily looks good, though! Maybe it’s just me, but this rainbow wedding party is a bit overwhelming, what with the rainbow brigade of bridesmaids and their prismatic escorts. What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Like the idea but dislike the execution?

    My guess is yes, Isabel! I think they could have toned down the effect by putting the groomsmen in white shirts instead of having their shirts match the bridesmaids’ dresses. But as always, it was their choice, and there’s a big part of me that’s glad they did exactly what they wanted to.

    I agree – it’s great that they got what they wanted out of it, but… that’s a whole lot of everything going on there.

    In general, though, I like the multi-color idea. Even though I’m waiting to be proposed to, I’ve got a tentative plan that will involve my bridesmaids in a selection of fall colors (gold, eggplant, chocolate, pumpkin, etc), but the guys will probably be wearing black and white, to keep it from looking like October puked all over everyone.

    Oh boy did that give me a flashback. And I have seen some hideous weddings.

    Yet, it is perspective.. one person’s beauty is another’s horror.

    Though of the rainbow weddings from years ago, they were never so bold.. they were a lot tamer in pastel hues. I think that helped it not feel so shocking.

    Recently I have seen allot of the deep green & harvest gold being used in weddings. I do wonder if people who made those choices had a chance to see a wedding from the 1970′s they may have rethought that choice.

    So while it is a personal choice, what we are (blinded) to like, likely won’t be the case when we look back a decade later. I definitely do not have the same tastes I did now vs humm say the 1990s.

    But hey… let them have fun!
