SPRING into these Wedding Ideas
Updated: May 10, 2019
Spring brings about flowers in bloom, the sun shining and the brisk winds of winter giving way to warm weather and longer days. This is a beautiful time of the year to tie the knot.
If you are planning a Spring wedding or celebration you may be searching out ways to highlight this gorgeous season in your planning. I have done some research and compiled a list of Spring wedding ideas to get you "Springing" into action!!!
Be Bright and Beautiful
Spring brides will be spoiled with their choices when it comes to choosing their wedding bouquet as there are countless varieties of flowers available in every color under the sun.
Floral Inspired Wedding Gown
Floral decor may seem a bit predictable, but stepping out in a floral inspired wedding gown will definitely catch the eyes of your guests and leave you looking resplendent. This Claire Pettibone bridal collection took my breath away. This classic, stunning Bijoux wedding gown from the Couture Gilded Age Collection is covered in crystal beads and pearls accenting a graceful floral embroidery. The modest neckline manages to be both graceful and alluring, while the gorgeous surprise of the beaded embellished open keyhole back adds to the wedding WOW factor!
Flower Crowns, Not Just For Hippy Chicks
Flowers are a plenty during Spring time and it would make sense to put them to good use. Why not have your florist create a flower crown that coordinates with your bridal bouquet?
Groomsmen in Color
With all of the surrounding bright colors of Spring, your color options will not be limited. Include your groomsmen in the soiree of colors with vibrant patterned pocket squares, bright colored ties, and suits in bold shades of blue. Your groomsmen will certainly be looking dapper. Another choice for more rustic themed weddings is to outfit the groomsmen in country checks and tweed which will coordinate smoothly with countryside wedding venues.
It is said that rain on a wedding day is actually a sign of good luck, but that doesn't mean you should be unprepared. Have a bridal cover up on stand by just in case the weather turns a bit nippy or issue your bridesmaids and groomsmen with adorable umbrellas that harmonize well with your wedding theme or colors.
Choose a Spring Inspired Wedding Cake
Wedding guests not only look forward to tasting the wedding cake, but the look of the wedding cake can help pull together your entire wedding theme and color scheme.
Simple, yet Stunning Centrepieces
If your goal is for clean, minimalistic decor. Add subtle seasonal hints to your tables by creating simple arrangements of gypsohila, tulips, or daffodils in jars and vases that have a rustic appearance to them. You can also choose to coordinate your centerpieces with your colorful spring bouquet.
Get Creative With The Table Plan
Creatively displaying your table plan in an unusual way such as wrapping your plan in a gorgeous frame of seasonal wedding flowers could be an amazing way to display your Spring style.
Tying the knot in front of an immaculately created flower wall could be a beautiful way to incorporate the vibrant colors and natural beauty of Spring. While flower walls can eat into the wedding budget a cash saving hack may be to use paper flower for the wedding instead. Guests will fall in love with being able to take photos during the celebration in front of the flower wall too.
Beat The Heat In Tea Length
Late Spring weddings, especially here in the South, can lead to weather that can be a little more on the hot side. Beat the heat with a tea length bridal gown. The tea length bridal gown is the perfect look for 1950's inspired weddings.
Vintage Themed Details
Vintage inspired decor works so well with the Spring season. Birdcage centerpieces filled with seasonal flowers, antique items used as decorations, hanging pom poms, bunting.... the options are endless. Antique transportation would be the perfect addition to a vintage inspired wedding.
Embrace the Outdoors
The sounds and sights of nature waking up from the Winter are beaming during the months of Spring. Make sure that you get your photographer to snap some outdoor photos. The trees and plants will be in bloom, making for some wonderful picture opportunities.
Get Married Under A Floral Archway
Saying your vows under an archway made of flowers is so romantic. Wedding venues with stunning glasshouses that have floor to ceiling windows and an abundance of natural light make for the perfect setting for these archways.
Sweet Treats Table
Guests will fall in love with your Spring inspired dessert table filled with jars and dishes of sweet treats surrounded by floral arrangements and a beautiful wedding sign.
Serve Fruity Cocktails
With the warm weather guests can easily find themselves parched. Offer them a refreshment of fruity wedding cocktails like pina coladas and cosmopolitans. If you and your significant other are cocktail connoisseurs take the time to create special custom made cocktails for your celebration. Click here for some inspiration on some signature cocktails that are perfect for your celebration.
Peony Season, Need I Say More?
Peony season peaks around April and May and they look perfect in a Spring bouquet.
Pastels are So In Season
A soft color palette of pastels works as a treat at Spring weddings. Weave accents of your chosen shades throughout neutral reception decor to add contrasting pops of color- think pastel napkins and table runners over crisp white tablecloths.
Bold Bridesmaid Dresses
Flowing material will help keep bridesmaids cool in the sun. And a cover up can easily be added if their is a chill. I love the floral print of the blue and white gown shown below. Of course, pink is always a good go to color for Spring weddings too.
