    Maybe you should pick two bold colors and the rest pastel. Like bold pink and bold yellow but with tiny splashes of pale pink and pale yellow, and pastel green,blue, purple, etc.

    ahhh this is exactly my idea as well! i’ve been kind of doubting it, as FI’s family is a little old fashioned and doesn’t understand “how there can be so many colors in one wedding.” LOL but your inspiration really helped remind me how much i love the rainbow pastel theme. i’m also thinking about doing pops of color, and i’m thinking of like a coral and sage color. not sure yet tho!

    @dazydeadpetals: I agree with fzesquer – that sounds like a great way to do it.  I’m doing kind of similar… we’ll have bright turquoise, bright yellow, and bright coral or fuschia, and also some soft peaches and softer yellows.  I love all your pix!  I’m excited for a bright colorful festive wedding myself.  I am TOTALLY doing that hanging flower backdrop – obsessed!!!  Is your venue outside or a rustic-y indoor place?  The bright colors go really well with that kind of place.  Ours is all outside, so it won’t look like the Care Bears exploded inside a ballroom…

    This might be an interesting way to combine your ideas:

    Hope that helps. But overall I think you could do a pastel kind of thing, or even just make much more subtle colors of the rainbow to look pastel-ish.

    @dazydeadpetals:  I see that you’re thinking of sticking with the pastels … Good choice!  That’s what I voted for.  I think it will look really romantic and elegant.  Unfortunately, while the bright rainbow colors are really fun, I feel like it just looks like too much is going on.  You definitely don’t want your decor to take all of the focus away from the two of you!

    By the way, are you a Tori Amos fan?  Your username suggests that you might be, but you never know.  If so, awesome!  If not … If not, disregard this part of my response.  Haha.  Smile

    @dazydeadpetals:  I think you could do the flower backdrop easily enough by just threading fishing line through a needle and stabbing it through the thick green part of the flower head.  Maybe??  That’s my thought at this point.  I wonder how much in advance you could do it…  We’re doing DIY flowers and I don’t want to be sewing flowers all morning of my wedding, lol!  I’m going to get my fiance to build a wooden altar thing like this and string flowers between it.. hopefully…

    You can always do bolder color of pastels….like, light colors but bold, not the washed out kind if you wanted something in between.

    @dazydeadpetals:  I also agree that the best way to combine them is to have a pastel rainbow palette overall, and highlight one or two colors tops by repeating them in bright colors. 

    like pale pink, pale blue, pale yellow, pale green, bright green and bright pink for example (or whichever are your favorite)

    But if you’re planning on having a candy buffet (and by the looks of your inspiration pics you are) I say get your candy as bright as you want it. Bright colors go naturally with candy plus it won’t be overwhelming since it’s one table not the whole room.

    It depends on what you re going for. I scrolled through the pastel pics and said “wow” then scrolled through the bold and said “cute.” I say pastel bc for my wedding I’d want the elegant “wow” vs the cute and fun, but thats up to you as for what you are going for. 

    I do like the happy medium idea of pastels and throwing in one or two bold colors!
