When picking your location, the sunflower theme would be at home in a church, a lovely yard or garden, and even the beach would show off these bright colors most beautifully.

You can even download the designs you want and use them in doing your own wedding invitations. A sunflower color theme should be bright and bursting with vim and vigor. The dominant color warm and sunny and maybe throw in a bit of red or brown or green.
Keeping in line with the theme, the wedding flowers for the aisle can be vases of sunflowers. And, not necessarily the yellow flowers as sunflowers come are many shades. There’s a creamy white, a brilliant orange, a peach, and even deep burgundy. Other flowers to match them with would be Gerber daisies, yellow mums, and chocolate cosmos to name a few.
Have the flower girl scatter very small sunflowers or the petals from larger sunflowers on the aisle you’ll walk down. The ring bearer would look wonderful with a small sunflower in his lapel and carrying the rings on a sunflower bedecked wedding ring pillow.
Your reception decorations should go on with the classic and elegant look of your sunflowers in large vases as wedding centerpieces. For a more casual wedding centerpiece, a few sunflowers in an attractive vase surrounded by small votive candles are just the thing you require.
Yet another idea is to cut the stems from the flower and float the blooms in a shallow bowl.
You also have to ascertain that the guest book, where people sign and leave messages for you, continue your sunflower theme either with yellow or sunflower imprinted paper or surrounded by beautiful blossoms. Your tablecloths might be white with yellow napkins and runner and you can tie a yellow ribbon around each guest chair to welcome them to their seats.
