board game wedding: scrabble

Scrabble tiles have been used in weddings for a long time and it’s easy to see why! These fun little squares are reminiscent of Sunday afternoons spent with your fiancé, sipping coffee, while each of you vie for the highest word score.

I adore this game and so I’m excited to present this Scrabble themed wedding inspiration as the next installment in the board game wedding series!

Scrabble themed wedding

For a truly Scrabble themed wedding try to take it a step further than just using the letter tiles wherever you can. Incorporate the board colors! At first glance, the color scheme on a Scrabble board might not look like the most wedding friendly palette – but I promise you – it is!

The pale yellow and neutral colors represent the blank squares on the board (the ones where you don’t get any bonus points) and it makes a great backdrop for the hints of blush (double word score) and red (triple word score!) colors. There’s even a little hint of pale blue (double letter score) on the string wrapping the invitations.
