Planning a wedding can be a challenge. Even if you know the colors you want or have a particular style in mind, it can be difficult to organize everything in a way that fits your vision. If you're planning your wedding in the spring, you may want to take a look at some trends that will help you decide the theme, color scheme and specialized accents for your big day.
1. Chic, Rainy Day Fashions
Don't let the likelihood of rain spoil your spring wedding. You can decorate the reception area with upside-down umbrellas or purchase rain boots for your wedding party that matches your event colors. Reserving a space with a gazebo or pavilion is also a good idea if you want to have an outdoor ceremony.
2. Brightly Colored Flowers
Spring is the perfect time to show off the natural beauty of flowers. Tulips, peonies and roses in bold colors like pink, purple and red are ideal for a bridal bouquet or decorative accents.
3. Add Baseball Accents
If you and your spouse are baseball fans, you likely look forward to the spring season each year. Add baseball accents to your wedding by choosing a cake topper shaped like a baseball or bat. You can even customize the cake topper to showcase figurines of you and your spouse playing baseball. You can also hang a banner with the logo of your favorite team in the reception area, or use a stencil to showcase the logo on the wall or carpet.
4. Garden-Themed Centerpieces
Spring is one of the best times for gardening, and you can display your favorite flowers in centerpieces with a planter theme to add color and texture to your wedding decor. Use a suspended planter with vivid blooms like sunflowers or carnations. Or, give your guests small succulents as wedding favors.
5. Lighter Formalwear
Have the wedding party wear lighter colors for your spring wedding. Instead of a black suit, the groom can wear seersucker or a pastel suit, which can complement the floral decor of your ceremony. Pastel shades like blush pink, lavender and mint are also ideal for bridesmaid and flower girl dresses.
6. Birds and Butterflies
These animals are indicative of the spring season and you can incorporate them into your wedding by adding a butterfly cake topper to your cake, wearing a birdcage-style wedding veil or serving hummingbird cake to your guests. You can even ask that your baker make your wedding cake in the shape of love birds, or add a topper in the shape of love birds.
7. A Wedding Bike
Take advantage of the warm spring weather by riding away from your ceremony on a bike instead of a car. You can use vintage or motorized bike and decorate it in your wedding colors. Riding a bike away from your reception allows you to feel the fresh air of spring on your wedding and makes for personalized pictures that capture you and your spouse's personalities.
8. Bold Colors
While pastels are often associated with spring, you can add vivid hues to your wedding decor as well. Combining a bold color with more subtle shade, such as cobalt blue with light yellow or rose pink and lime green is a stunning contrast that will make your decor especially picturesque.
9. Add More To the Veil
If you want a wedding veil for your spring nuptials, adding a crown, tiara or headdress to the veil is completely on trend for the season. A-line wedding dresses and wedding pants suits are on trend for spring as well and complement elaborate headdresses very well.
10. Outdoor Weddings with Indoor Lighting
Chances are you want to have a spring wedding so you can exchange your vows outdoors. However, you can make the ceremony site especially inviting by adding some outdoor lighting elements to the space. Line the pathway to the altar with lanterns or hang a chandelier in the center of the arch where you and your spouse will exchange vows. The lighting also works well if the wedding is in the evening, since lanterns and lamps can provide soft, romantic lighting.
