Sunflowers are already whimsical type flowers, so use that throughout on your invitations, menu cards, flowers, and ceremony. They are fresh, pretty and playful. You can go a little more elegant even though you want fun at your reception, so don’t worry about being a little glamourous. Do have a great DJ, have novelty gifts like neon jewelry, head boppers, novelty hats, masks, tambourines and other noisemakers during dancing. Get a bubble machine for the first dance and you can add by each place setting a small silken sunflower that you could get at any craft store like Michael’s. You could also alternate by using yellow damask runners and black & white damask runners for a cool look on your tables. I would use white table cloths under the black and white runners and black under the yellow & white runners.
Also have someone throw yellow petals while you and your bridal party are dancing – will make for great photos. Do a candy table so that guests could take home cookies, candies that match your theme and decorate that in yellow with black and white damask as well.
You may want to hire dancers who dress as sunflowers to come in and do a dance while dinner is being served (perhaps hire a local dance school at a lower cost) – you would only need about 4 dancers.
Here are my picks for damask & yellow – good luck!
