As the days warm up, the flowers begin budding, and lambs play in the fields, it’s no wonder that Spring is one of the most picturesque times of the year for a wedding. Blossoms, daffodils, and tulips scatter the grass, while the symbolic time of new beginnings makes it the perfect season to say “I do”. There are so many ways you can take inspiration from Spring for your special day, from delicate florals and blossoms to the pastel colours of Easter and the fresh produce now available. Here are some of our favourite ideas for a spectacular Spring wedding.
When you think of Springtime, flowers and blossoms probably come to mind pretty quickly, and what better place to make the most of this season’s floral display than at a wedding! From bright yellow daffodils to vivid tulips, the baby pink cherry blossom, to dainty crocuses, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Spring flowers. Use them in your bouquet and buttonholes, as decorative table centrepieces, added decoration for your chosen venue, or as even as colourful arches and flowering walls. Seeking something different? Why not swap out traditional Spring flowers for a stunning array of succulents.
If terracottas and russet browns are the colours of Autumn, delicate pastels and duck egg blues are indeed the colours of Spring. From bridesmaids dresses and waistcoats to chair covers and bouquets, there are so many ways to bring these colours into your wedding. If you opt for pastel bridesmaids dresses, look for delicate materials such as chiffon and lace to enhance this soft colour palette.
As well as beautiful flowers, Spring marks the arrival of some of the year’s best produce. Delight your guests with a seasonal menu, which can include fresh asparagus, pea greens, succulent lamb, and sweet rhubarb. If the budget allows, source from local farm shops, making the most of the change from the heavy root veg of winter. Spring also marks the time of Easter, allowing you to sneak chocolate eggs into your big day! You can add them to your guests’ favours or even create an Easter egg hunt to keep the little ones entertained.
Despite the days feeling longer, the Spring evenings can still have a chill to them. If you have an outdoor area for your wedding reception, make guests feel cosy with some added warmth from fire pits or chimeneas. You can create a magical space with fairy lights and bunting, giving people somewhere to chat and socialise away from the dancefloor! Looking to add ambience to any table setting? Why not opt for some delicate candles, lanterns, or tealights.
Finish off your wedding decorations with subtle touches of Spring blossom, a gentle nod to this time of renewal. Follow petals down the aisle, scatter them on tables or give them to guests as confetti - there are plenty of options to bring a slight hint of Spring to your special day.
