Spring is a wonderful time of the year to hold a wedding; nature is awakening, flowers are blooming and sunshine is returning. And as wedding venues are generally cheaper at this time of year, it is also a popular season for couples looking to tie the knot.
Springtime colours are a strong feature of any spring wedding, and can help you create the perfect theme for your big day. Think pastel colours that are light and fresh such as green, yellow, pink, lavender, white or cream. Combine these colours or use them all to create your very own springtime wedding theme.
Dress for springtime! Classic pastel bridesmaids’ dresses and tan suits with light coloured shirts for men always work well. For the wedding dress, opt for a dash of springtime colour with bright accessories paired with a wonderful bouquet of springtime flowers. As spring days will often get cooler, choose a wedding dress with sleeves and opt for wraps for bridesmaids’ dresses.
Decorate your wedding with spring flowers; flowers in season include lilies, tulips, daffodils, roses and Gerber daisies and they all look beautiful with maiden hairstyles. Use candles to accent flower centrepieces and replace confetti with rose petals.
Let your menu showcase the best of spring by including fruit and vegetables that are in season, including asparagus, new potatoes and baby carrots with your main course, and puddings with strawberries, apricots or rhubarb. Consider extending the springtime theme to the wedding cake, decorating it with spring colours or crowning it with a beautiful spring decoration of flowers.
