When Life Gives You Lemons...

School may be back in session for some but our summer spirit is not going anywhere! Watermelon and pineapple are all the rage when it comes to decorations and funky clothing but here at the White Room, we are obsessed with Lemons. (Well… maybe just one of us is obsessed with anything lemon). So why not show you how to have a lemon themed wedding?

-First I’ll help you warm up to the idea with a little color inspiration!

Yellow can be a bold color but you can easily tone with down with some soft greens, creams, and grays. We want to show that if you are not afraid of a little pop of color, then you can still gain that natural and romantic feel most brides are looking for!

To introduce your guests to your lemon themed wedding, give them a little sneak peek through your invitations!

Simple, elegant and still classy. You can’t go wrong. Just give a pop of the fruit through the envelopes or a simple watercolor design on the invite or RSVP card!

-Next is your lemon-print bridesmaid dresses! Just kidding ;)

Incorporate your lemon themed wedding with yellow bridesmaid dresses. A canary yellow from Bill Levkoff is always a good choice. You can even mix match the styles for what best suits all your bridesmaids!

-To feature your color palette more, you can use your bouquet as an opportunity to show that along with expressing that nature-esc feel.

The unbloomed yellow peonies are my favorite! They kind of resemble lemons but without the hassle of the weight. The touches of white roses are also a great contribution to add the classic and elegant feel.

-Now if anyone is going to wear a dress with lemons all over, it’s got to be the flower girl!

How cute is this little dress? It makes me want one in my size! Flower girl dresses these days don’t have to be traditional! Make it fun, summery and cute! (It’s also a perk if they can wear it again!)
-Now let’s bring in the real deal. Easy peezy lemon squeezy decorations!

Grab some something simple and beautiful like a bundle of hydrangeas or baby’s breath. Then fill a vase with lemon slices and you have your centerpieces! If you aren’t a fan of the lemon slices, you can always add whole lemons or even a few limes sporadically on some tables or near decorations to keep your theme going!

We love the look of this naked cake with the lemons for decoration! Now I love myself some lemon flavored cake but if you were wanting to go with something more traditional, you can always do that and use the fruit just for looks!

What better drink is there other than Lemonade?

You can set up a cute drink station with all different kinds of lemonade. Don’t be afraid to add some tea and water as well. You can still center the theme on lemonade!

-Last but not least, don’t forget to give your guests a little something to remember your lemon wedding!

What better way to end the night other than with a pun and some lemon drops? Something that is sweet and simple. Not to mention budget friendly!
With all that and a glass of lemonade, thanks for stopping by to indulge in our obsession with lemons!

So when life gives you lemons… plan a wedding!
