DIY Rainbow Wedding: Amanda & Andre


People who submit their weddings to me often describe the theme as ‘them’ – a collection of things that they love or that they feel represent them as a couple. Amanda and Andre, who were married in Cologne, Germany, were no different. “We had some Rock n Roll, lots of colour and a slight industrial vibe for our wedding”, Amanda explained. “Our wedding was held in the middle of Cologne central market at ‘Alte Versteigerungshalle‘ which means Old Auction House. It was difficult to find a venue that was outside of the norm. We didn’t want a farm, a castle or a hotel. Because of the lack of alternatives we picked somewhere that we could make our own and decorate ourselves.”


“Our place cards were made from this vintage fashion doll tutorial that I found online and our paper flowers were all based on this YouTube video“, she continued. “The glitter stars and hearts were cut out of plastic tablecloth which sounds easy but took forever and wasn’t very fun – they looked great though! I ordered handmade shabby chic frames from etsy in rainbow colours which held our table numbers. We bought vinyls to use as place-mats from eBay.”


Both Amanda and Andre designed their own outfits which then had made by tailors in Hong Kong. “If you have a special design in your head or you only have a picture of your dream dress I can totally recommend you my tailor Miu from Hong Kong. She has many customers overseas and is amazing!”




  1. Oh my how adorable! I love this, and I love the whole “personal” and “make it your own” trend that has taken off with weddings in the last decade or so as opposed to everyone being traditional and all doing the same thing.

    Hast du deinen blumenhaarkranz noch? 🙂
    Würdest du ihn abgeben wollen? Oder ist der Zustand nicht mehr so gut?
