Rainbow colours and magical sparkles are just two of the reasons why unicorns have become such a popular fashion trend. If you can't get enough of this mythical creature, here are 10 ways that you can pay homage with your wedding theme. 

1. Dresses

Whether you want to opt for something a little different or want your bridesmaids to take on a unicorn colour palette, here are the perfect dresses to do it.

2. Shoes

Reserved for those brides who aren't afraid to make a fashion statement, these unicorn shoes from Irregular Choice are a bold and brave step into alternative bridal footwear.

3. Nails

Holographic nails adorned with jewels, or something more subtle like a simple unicorn illustration, offer a stunning nod to the magical trend.

4. Stationery and table settings

Inject fun into your wedding stationery with 'find your unicorn name' cards. You can place these on charger plates atop a kaleidoscopic coloured table cloth to truly deliver your wedding breakfast in style.
