Sunflowers are typically in season between the months of July and September. To plan a sunflower-themed wedding complete with fresh, real sunflowers, the ideal time to have the wedding is during these months. If you're interested in having a wedding when sunflowers are out of season, consider dried or silk sunflower arrangements to keep with the theme anytime of the year.
Consider several colour schemes which will work beautifully with a sunflower-themed wedding. For a fall wedding, use a colour palette of reds, golds and deep greens. For a different take on sunflowers, use sunflowers with white or red petals, or sunflowers with red streaks. Combine these unusual flowers with rustic oranges or rustic yellows for an eye-catching colour scheme. Other deep colours which work well with a sunflower-themed wedding, are royal purple, chocolate and dark blue.
There are several ways to decorate a wedding with a sunflower theme. Using white tablecloths with an eye-catching centrepiece composed of sunflowers adds a light touch of summer cheerfulness to a room. Other more subtle sunflower-themed touches include candles in the shape of sunflowers, galvanised buckets with sunflower cutouts or filled with sunflower arrangements, sunflower wreaths, several small sunflower-shaped lights arranged artfully on a table or around the room, and napkins and tablecloths with a sunflower theme.
There are several options available for sunflower-themed wedding favours. Give guests a box of chocolate sunflowers or a small sunflower-themed bag, filled with candy-coated sunflower seeds. Guests might also enjoy miniature items in the shape of sunflowers, such as soaps, picture frames or mints in a tin can with a sunflower picture stamped on the top. Other favours which are perfect for a sunflower-themed wedding are personalised magnets printed with the bride and groom's name and wedding date, sunflower-shaped cookies, or a pot planted with a sunflower pen.
