Adult coloring books are very popular right now, and for good reason! Coloring helps reduce stress, stimulate artistic and creative qualities, and well, they’re just plain fun. We (as lovers of weddings and artistic items and ideas in general) have gathered some of our favorite ways to use adult coloring books for weddings. So, whether you’re a traditional bride or a bride who plans on shaking things up a bit, use the following ideas for inspiration while planning your own wedding.
1. Create a save the date coloring page
An adorable way to tell guests what the date of your wedding will be! It can also set the theme if you’re planning to use adult coloring books during the actual wedding or reception as well.
2. Creating coloring books for children
Okay, so these aren’t technically for adults, but creating fun coloring books for the children who will be attending the wedding will keep them occupied and ensure that they’re having great time. This certainly benefits the adults, so win-win!
3. Place coloring pages at each table
This is the perfect activity for your guests to do if they don’t want to dance, or when they’re seated between dances. Many brides have little games or worksheets at their tables so this is a fun alternative.
4. Offer them as favors
What a fun and unique wedding favor idea! Adult coloring books for wedding favors is genius for any wedding, but especially wonderful for an art-themed wedding.
5. Thank You Cards
Find a pattern you love and use it as the design for a “thank you” card that will go out to all of the family members and friends that attended your wedding.
6. They are available for all seasons
If your wedding theme will center on the season you’re getting married in, you can definitely find coloring pages that work well for that specific season.
7. They are available for various themes
Because adult coloring books are so popular right now, they’re available in a huge variety of designs. So, it will be easy to find something no matter what theme you’re doing, whether it’s a garden wedding…
…a fairytale theme…
…or a vintage theme.
8. Use them for games and contests
If you don’t want to do the same old wedding games during your reception, use adult coloring book pages for contests and games. Using a blank wedding cake page, challenge guests to decorate using only items that start with a certain letter. Have various items hiding throughout the reception venue, and then have the wedding party choose the winner, who will receive a prize!
9. Order Personalized Books
As with most excellent things, adult coloring books can be personalized to fit the couple! Order personalized books to place at each table, or to give away as favors to your guests.
10. They Reduce Stress
It’s proven that coloring and participating in similar artistic projects can reduce stress. So, if you’re feeling stressed out as you plan your wedding, then sit down with a gorgeous adult coloring book and some art supplies and relax!
