2016 saw the rise of Rose Quartz and Serenity as the hottest colours for weddings everywhere. But while trends may come and go, one thing that remains is our love for rainbows. A little bit eclectic but a whole lot of fun, the rainbow wedding trend is every colour-loving couple's dream. From multi-layered cakes to charming ceremony backdrops and cake toppers, indulge your love for all things bright and colourful with these 10 rainbow wedding decor ideas.

Rainbow cake

A rainbow in cake form? Sugar high alert! Colourful multi-layer cakes may be an unusual choice but since it's your wedding, you get to have your rainbow cake and eat it too!


We're partial to pretty roses and peonies; but for a truly standout bridal bouquet (that all the single ladies will be dying to catch), go all out with a mix-and-match of vibrant blooms in pinks, oranges, and violets and add some colourful ribbon for the finishing touch.


Forget about rose petals and rice: getting your guests to toss colourful confetti is the quickest way to turn your wedding into a real party – plus imagine how beautiful the photos will turn out!


Here's one way to set the backdrop for your beautiful ceremony in a fun and creative way: rainbow ribbon streamers! Great for outdoor weddings on a budget, all you'll need are strips of ribbon and a dowel rod (if you're nifty with DIY, that is).

Invitation cards

Snail mail just got even cooler with these pretty watercolour wedding invitations – they're definitely RSVP-worthy.

As if your rainbow cake couldn't get any more delicious, we're loving these adorable rainbow pom-poms – a fun and festive take on traditional cake toppers.

Lanterns & pom-poms

Who says balloons are just for kids? Nothing says 'party' like balloons – lots of them, and preferably in all colours of the rainbow!

Place cards

These personalised place cards are perfect for adding a pop of colour to your tablescape. Plus, your guests surely won't resist bringing them home as an adorable memento.
