BRIGHT & COLORFUL WEDDING IDEAS

Grab your sunglasses because today we are sharing one helluva bright and colorful wedding editorial. We know its winter and we should probably be dulling down the colour, but you know what? sometimes rules are just meant to be broken.

Let’s start with that backdrop! I love the mixtures of colours and pattern and those floral displays either side of the altar are astounding! Aside from colour, this shoot pretty much includes all of my favourite things, there’s balloons, pin wheels, cute slogans, cacti, lots of pink and even a donut station!!

Ok so we are a couple of days late to the party, but let’s be honest if you are a true donut fan, then ery’day be donut day! So without further ado, here are our top 30 donut DIY’s to get you in spirit.

1. Donut Pillow: We like any excuse to turn normal household items into donuts and this is no exception! How tasty does this pillow look! It would take all my willpower to not munch on it, although it wouldn’t taste anywhere near as good as the real thing!
