The sleeveless look paired with a sweetheart neckline is perfect for the bride that wants to soak in the sun during the ceremony and then dance the night away.
Spring Wedding Bouquet Ideas
Springtime brides are blessed with an abundance of beautiful seasonal flowers to choose from. From roses and peonies to tulips, hydrangeas, lilies, and sweet peas, brides have endless options to choose from. According to Brides, “your bouquet will be one of the most photographed wedding details, it should express your personal sense of style, whether it’s traditional, modern, romantic, whimsical, boho, or rustic.” Remember this when selecting the perfect flower for your bridal bouquet.
Peonies - One of the most popular choices, peonies are in season during late spring. If the flower is in season, you can save on costs and enjoy the lush and full volume of this bloom with its bright color options.
Roses - This classic flower is the most popular choice among brides. If you’re looking for something with a little more drama, consider a bouquet of classic red roses. Roses have a universal meaning of love so we can’t think of anything more romantic than selecting them for your bouquet. The vibrant red color will be a highlight on your big day.
Lilies - Whimsical and romantic, white lilies are a timeless option for a spring wedding bouquet. You can pair these with hydrangeas or eucalyptus to create a wildflower-inspired bouquet. Or perhaps tie it together with your grandmother’s lace handkerchief for vintage style.
Your bouquet serves as a major accessory piece and should help highlight your gown. Soft pastel florals are always a good option. Sweet peas and peonies especially look beautiful in pink and tied together with a sweet satin ribbon- making for a dreamy bouquet. If you need a little help deciding, speak to a florist in your area for some expert advice.
Springtime Wedding Decor
With such a joyous and sun-kissed season, it only seems fitting to include wedding decorations that embrace the season. From trendy wicker-inspired decor to handmade mini escort cards to hanging flower chandeliers, there are many ways to bring spring into your decor.
Boho Wicker Decor
A current trend is using woven wicker-inspired pieces for decor. From lanterns to baskets to outdoor furniture and more, these accent pieces pair perfectly for anyone looking to plan a bohemian style wedding. You can use the lanterns as hanging chandeliers for your outdoor evening reception or include wicker patio furniture during cocktail hour to make for a casual setting. These woven pieces embody a laid-back, relaxed vibe that works especially well if you’re also planning a backyard outdoor event.
When it comes to this season, fresh flowers just make sense. This is one of the best seasons for a celebration because there are so many varieties of flowers in bloom. A small touch of greenery around a floral centerpiece can also make a big difference. When choosing your spring wedding color palettes, traditional colors such as white and blue always look great. Creams and shades of pink are also attractive. Remember to match your centerpiece with the linens and plates you’ve picked for the place settings.
When displaying wedding flowers on the tables, you can go with large bowls, small minimal vases, or even tall tower centerpieces. Or you can skip the vase altogether and go with floral runners. Small potted plants and succulents are also an option and make a nice wedding favor that guests can take home. Candles spread around the tablescape are a great addition, too.
Spring Wedding Cakes
Decorate a traditional white, tiered wedding cake with spring-themed adornments. Fresh flowers around the cake and pastel hues such as powder blue, lilac, and soft yellows look great on a traditional cake. Cherry blossoms, garden roses, figs, berries, and other fresh fruit are also very attractive and can add a nice splash of color.
Floral Hanging Chandelier
For a more luxurious decoration, consider hanging a floral chandelier at your wedding ceremony or reception. Nothing says spring like a hanging installation of fresh flowers. Include tulips, peonies or any other choice of seasonal flowers to embrace the season and its beauty. The fresh scent of real flowers will have your guests raving, and you can allow them to take home the flowers to reuse as decor- a great way to be sustainable and eco-friendly.
Bonus Idea - Mini Escort Cards
Let your inner child shine with a fun DIY project and use color-dyed eggs in place of paper escort cards. Soft pastel colors such as baby pink, soft lavender, or sky blue are perfect tones to dye eggs and really embody the bright season. You can also personalize each egg by adding calligraphed names or initials of each guest. You can take the wedding theme to the next level and place each egg in a miniature nest- making for a fun detail. This idea is great for brides that are searching for different ways to incorporate springtime themes beyond using flowers.
No matter what decor or bouquet you choose, we recommend embracing this wonderful season and all it has to offer to help create your dream day.
