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.”
