The summer is often considered prime wedding season, but there is something refreshing and romantic about having a spring wedding. Spring is often thought of as a rebirth, which makes it the perfect time to start your new life as a couple together. Here are some ways to incorporate spring time freshness into your nuptials.
Seed Flower Save the Dates
This is one of the cutest ways to inject some freshness into your wedding right from the start. These adorable Save the Dates are actually printed right on seed paper, which can then be planted. By the time you’re walking down the aisle and saying “I do,” your guests will have beautiful flowers sprouting back home!
Pastels, Pastels, Pastels
When thinking of spring, pastel colors is one of the first things that come to mind. After spending a few months buried under snow, a nice mix of muted pastels is a great way to bring color into a wedding without overwhelming guests. These light and airy tones are perfect for mismatched bridesmaid’s dresses, and it lets everyone pick the color that they shine best in.
Neutral Groom Tones
While it’s acceptable for bridesmaids to wear mismatched pastel dresses, you probably don’t envision your groomsmen and groom in suits of varying pastel hues. If the thought of a mismatched bridal party doesn’t suit you, consider using neutral tones for attendants. Black is definitely not a spring color, so try neutral attire with a pop of spring color for a tie or bowtie instead. You’ll be surprised how fresh your groom will look in a light grey or beige tux.
Fun Floral Prints
Spring and flowers go hand in hand. Stroll through a garden in spring and you’ll see flowers budding and trees sprouting leaves. If you want to inject some natural elements this spring without breaking the budget, floral prints are perfect. They can be incorporated into wedding stationary, signage, and for the more rebellious brides, floral appliqué and floral lace are also great options for dresses.
Natural Ceremony Backdrop
One of the best ways to add freshness into your wedding is through natural elements. While hosting a garden wedding is ideal for this, it isn’t necessary. Utilizing a natural backdrop in an indoor venue is a great way to replace the feel of an outdoor wedding. This can be done by using a wooden pergola ordained with spring fresh flowers, or even something simpler like a greenery wall, which serves as a perfect backdrop for pictures.
Fresh Flowers & Greenery
Perhaps the easiest way to add some springtime freshness into your wedding is through floral arrangements. Spring is a great season for flowers and your florist should be able to give you a list of blooms particular to the season. Tulips, daisies, lilacs, peonies and orchids are great options for springtime bouquets and provide endless options for mixing and matching. For brides who really want to make a bold statement, incorporating bright florals into centerpieces, accessories and ceremony fixtures is a great way to add freshness. Keep in mind that if you don’t want to go overboard with flowers, or want to opt for something more neutral, garlands and greenery are also great for adding freshness.
