Inspiration for a Spring Wedding
If you’re having your wedding in April, May or June, you’re one lucky bride! Spring is a lovely time of year for a wedding. With the floral options, the color palette and crisp fresh air, the ideas are truly endless. Today we’re sharing some inspiration for your spring wedding.
Where to Host Your Spring Wedding
Spring weddings can be a bit tricky because if you live in the midwest or northeastern parts of the country, you never know how the weather will be. Keep that in mind when planning out your ceremony and selecting reception venues.
If you’re hosting an intimate ceremony, find a gazebo or terrace where you can exchange vows. Decorate the altar area or railings with fresh floral garlands for a look that is 100% spring inspired, and then bring those garlands to use on the head table at the reception.
For your reception, choose a space with lots of natural light – not only will the space feel fresh and spring-like but it also allows you to bring nature in with the canopy of trees or landscaping that can be seen from inside the venue.
Fresh Spring Florals
Once your venues are chosen, you can start dreaming up all of the ways to decorate for the fresh spring season. There are so many lovely flowers in season in the spring months, so your options for bouquets, centerpieces and garlands are wide open.
Some wedding floral favorites that are perfect to include in your arrangements are peonies, roses, ranunculus, tulips, lilacs and sweet pea. And they are all in season, making your spring wedding flower arrangements ones to be envied by brides getting married any other time the year. Take advantage of these in-season flowers and build show-stopping bouquets that you’ll never want to put down.
Dainty Details and Decor
Springtime is all about the dainty details – from the attire to the decor, you can incorporate the loveliest aspects of spring into your wedding.
With bridesmaids and groomsmen and dusty blues and grays that match the springtime sky you will have the most gorgeous wedding party standing by your side on your big day. Have your bridesmaids mix and match dress styles for a look that’s not so much matchy-matchy but still uniform, and have each groomsman wear a different colored tie to bring the other colors into your wedding palette.
Think delicate when it comes to your wedding decor and details. Soft peach chiffon table runners down the middle of each table create a light and airy look – which is perfect for spring. Once you have your table runners down, add lush greenery and delicate tealights and candle holders for a simple and beautiful tablescape.
Don’t send the guests home empty-handed, either! Embrace your spring wedding and gift each guest with a mini plant or a wildflower packet for them to plant when they get home. They’ll have a simple and lovely reminder of your beautiful springtime wedding day.
There are so many ways to incorporate spring into your wedding. By choosing a pastel inspired color palette and including florals and delicate details, you’ll have the most beautiful wedding that you’ll remember for years to come.
