Welcome to Party Simplicity’s first design challenge: rainbow wedding invitations!
Rainbow colors are becoming an ever more popular choice for a wedding theme. The beautiful, vibrant full spectrum colors of a rainbow add a whimsical, fun loving feel to a wedding.
And the symbolism and mythology surrounding rainbows certainly makes them an interesting choice for a wedding. For example, the four elements of nature participate in forming a rainbow: fire, earth, air, and water. How you ask? Well, the sun rays (or fire) reflect in water droplets in the atmosphere (air). Both ends of a rainbow’s arch touches the earth.
Furthermore, rainbows symbolize a “bridge”. You can think of this as a bridge that joins two people (as in marriage) or two families. As well, it is also thought of as a bridge to heaven or the spiritual realm.
Rainbows also generally represent hope, peace, and calmness, as well as growth and rebirth. You can also think of it as a shining light of truth and wisdom that helps dispel doubt and despair. When we look at a rainbow we see beauty and feel wonder and joy.
Certainly unique and thoughtful symbolism for a wedding.
However, as a wedding theme, these colors also offer a bit of a challenge. Because they are bright and varied, if overdone, they can certainly end up looking tacky and cheesy, rather than whimsical and stylish.
Because the rainbow theme is a bit more challenging than more typical themes, this inspired the idea of a design challenge for our Party Simplicity designers. I tasked our designers to come up with one rainbow wedding invitation design.
These design challenges are great fun because each designer tends to have a different take on the theme and the designs end up being quite different. Here are the results from our talented Party Simplicity designers.
If you are thinking of having a rainbow themed wedding, maybe you’ll want to use one of these rainbow wedding invitation designs. Just click on the image to get to the product page where you can personalize the text and purchase them.
Some of these also have matching wedding stationery to go with them including rsvp and other insert cards, stickers, postage, address labels, table and place cards, thank you cards, save the date invitations, and wedding menus and programs. If you like a design and want matching products, you can also contact the designer of the invitation to see if they can make that product for you.
