While I applaud you for sticking with who you are and what you like, and while I sincerely hope I do not hurt your feelings…the cake looks like something for a child’s birthday.  Not for a wedding.  And for me, personally, I’m not into the rainbow dresses…please don’t be mad at me.

Do you watch My Fair Wedding by David Tutera?  He just did a wedding with a bride who loved rainbows and butterflies but he turned it into a much more elegant/adult appropriate affair.

His show is on the WE channel on Sunday nights.  But I would see if you might be able to catch back episodes online.  I think it was just last week’s show too.  It wasn’t too long ago.  You might be able to get a few better ideas.

I think it could be really fun, but I agree with StephinPA, it’s a very fine line between fun and childish!

I like the different bridesmaid dresses, I think the cake is way fun, but I might steer away from the rock candy bouquets, if I were you. Just sounds like a sticky disaster waiting to happen!

That cake isn’t really rainbow though, it’s just primary colors. I <3 rainbows too! And unicorns. Totally just bought a Lisa Frank rainbow threw up all over it unicorn spiral for my advanced genetics class this semester lol!

I think it would be awesome, and would definitely bring a smile to my face.

Yeah, I have to agree with the PPs who said it looks a bit childish, but I think you could still have your candy rainbow theme but by switching to softer colors you can make the theme more elegant. Like pastel pink and mint green and pale yellow.  For the bouquets, I think rock candy could be beautiful mixed in with flowers but all candy might look a little juvenile.  It is all very cute and if that is what you want then by all means go for it, but you don’t want to look back and think it looked to childish and regret it.

I love rainbows too and that exact dress was a top contender for a while. My first idea was to have a rainbow Japanese inspired wedding, so I say go for it.

I think weddings can be whatever you want, but I’d make sure your wedding elements also reflect your FH. Another idea for a cake, if you wanted more traditional looking cake is that the inside layers could make a rainbow. I think it’s an awesome surprise and might be a good compromise if you dont want that cake you posted.
