With the warm weather, beautiful colors and refreshing feeling of the season, spring is the perfect time for a wedding. If you’re thinking about having a spring wedding, you’re going to want to incorporate the spirit of the season in some fun ways.
Spring makes a lovely wedding theme, and it’s easy to carry throughout your decorations, colors, food and more. So how do you throw an awesome spring wedding? Here are four things you’ll need:
1. Pastel color palette
Nothing says spring like baby blues, light pinks and pale lilacs. For a spring wedding, there is no better color palette than pastels.
If you’re thinking of making nature the focus of your wedding, go for a pale yellow like the sun or light green like the grass. The light colors will be soothing and make your entire wedding feel comfortable and lighthearted. Plus the brightness of the pastels will signify happiness and new beginnings.
Choose pastel-colored dresses for your bridesmaids, and use pastel colors in your centerpieces, decorations and even on your cake.
2. Lots of flowers
Flowers are an important part of every wedding, but especially spring weddings. The spring season offers a ton of beautiful floral options, and since many of them will be in season, they will be easy to get. Using lots of flowers in your wedding will put an emphasis on nature and freshness.
Tulips make beautiful bouquets for you and your bridesmaids. Or if you’re trying to stick to a budget, baby’s breath or daisies can make your centerpieces pop without needing to spend a ton of money.
3. Floral theme
Besides your bouquets and flower arrangements, flowers should be apparent in your entire wedding. By making it your theme, you’ll have free rein to put flowers in every part of your wedding.
Choose beautiful floral invitations that match your bouquets or centerpieces. The fluidity will be much appreciated by your guests. Go for wedding favors such as a mini flower pot or seeds for planting.
4. Outdoor venue
While summer may be too hot for an outdoor wedding and winter too cold, spring is just right. The sunshine and fresh air make a perfect backdrop to your wedding. Choose a venue that will hold both your ceremony and reception for an easy and convenient experience on the big day.
Wineries and country clubs are beautiful options for your outdoor venue. But be sure to come up with a backup plan, such as a tent or indoor spot, just in case you see some of those April showers!
