    That board looks FANTASTIC! It’s also unique and unexpected to combine it with the blue.

    I also did a blue and gold wedding with Sunflowers and I loved how everything turned out!  I think adding touches of another color could also be very pretty.

    Here’s one of my favorite pictures from my wedding with myself and the bridal party showing off our DIY bouquets and flower girl basket.  Yellow bouquets just look so happy!

    I think the blue and yellow works really well.  I also like sunflowers paired with a soft green.

    True the picture is daisies, but it would work with sunflowers too.  It is also my color palette so I am totally partial.

    @July– I went pretty simple with my table decor.  We had white table clothes and blue napkins on all of the tables.  Then we did half of the tables with sunflowers and hypernicum berries in metal watering cans and half of the tables with metal pails filled with lemons and limes.  These were the mock ups I did of my centerpieces (don’t have my wedding photos of the centerpieces on this computer to show you)

     

    I hot glued some raffia around the lemon/lime pails and they just looked so cute.  I loved them and they were so simple to make.

    I like the blue the best but here’s another suggestion…

    @July: I wish I had more to give you.  I actually don’t even know what my flowers are going to look like.  I’m letting my mother take care of them.  I don’t have a bridal party and I don’t have a lot of details. 

    I like this but with green ribbon.

    I used to have sunflower centerpieces saved but I seem to have purged them.  Something as simple as a bunch of sunflowers in a glass vase or mason jar with a green ribbon tied around it.

    This was some invitation inspiration.

    The invitation that inspired what we actually did (but with green ribbon)  I don’t have pictures of our actual invitation.

    And finally our cake inspiration (I love.)

    And our actual caketopper.

    My shoes.

    I don’t know if these pictures help you at all, but I think that you could readily create centerpieces combining sunflowers with greens like eucalyptus and green ribbon for beatiful results.  Or you can go with blue and also have beautiful results.  Do what appeals to you and don’t worry about it too much.  The decor is a compliment, not the heart of the wedding.

    I am also planning on doing sunflowers. My colors are royal purple, fuchsia, yellow and green. And a few others here and there. I like color so I’m trying to keep it creative!

    Oooh….when I saw this I had to comment becasue we did a sunflower theme wedding and they’re one of my favorites :-). We went with yellow and brown (we had an August wedding), with a bit of red (the guys ties were red and I intended to have red with the flowers, too, but had to switch that to pink based on availability of flowers in our area). Our new bedroom is golden yellow and brown now, with a hint of red, and I still love that combination.

    But, that said, I really love the look of the yellow and blue (which is another favorite color combination). And I think you could definitely pull off the pink with the sunflowers, though I like the blue better still.
