A magnolia wedding theme is a really beautiful choice for spring and summer! Emma here and thank goodness the “polar vortex” is over because I am super ready for spring. As soon as my Christmas wreath came down, I was already looking for a spring wreath to replace it. Case in point: this magnolia wreath sitting in my Etsy cart for my own front door.
Isn’t it lovely?
While Joanna Gaines may have (okay, definitely) inspired my love for magnolias, my admiration for a magnolia wedding theme actually stems from this invitation by Paper Peach, shown below.
I especially like the colors selected: navy, cream, ivory, green, and a bit of gold makes this an easy wedding palette to work with. After seeing this, I delved into the whole magnolia wedding market and discovered a ton of really beautiful, easy-to-find things to make this theme work from start to finish.
Magnolia Wedding Theme
In this guide, you’ll find everything from invitations to jewelry, all in a magnolia wedding theme. We’ve covered a little bit of everything here to inspire you. To top it off — and because we’re “The Handmade Wedding Blog” — nearly everything in this blog post is handcrafted by an Etsy artist. You’re supporting handmade artisans AND planning an awesome wedding. I call that a serious win-win. :)
Let’s get started!
Magnolia wedding theme invitations
Every party starts with an invitation, so your wedding shouldn’t be any different. The invitation can really set the tone and theme of the entire day. It can even help you with colors, as you can see here.

As we find more magnolia ideas, we’ll add them to this list. However, these are the prettiest we could find right now. Which one is your favorite? I like the way those pillar candles look inside the magnolia wreath for centerpieces; I can visualize those as a centerpiece on my dining table.
