10 Tips For Planning Your Spring Wedding
For many brides there’s something extra sweet about saying “I do” in the springtime. The trees and flowers are budding, and the sun is shining longer. It's a wonderful season to have a wedding! There are so many wedding décor ideas that are perfect for the spring. Here are some of our favorites.
Perhaps one of the first decisions when planning a wedding is choosing your wedding colors. Your color choices will be incorporated into just about every aspect of your wedding. Pastels are a popular spring wedding color scheme, but bold, bright colors can also add a beautiful touch to your spring wedding. Here to help you design the color design for your wedding is a list of the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring color choices for 2021.
- Marigold- Pantone states Marigold is typically found in the fall, but its rich color evokes a cozy and friendly vibe that will also be sought out in the spring.
- Cerulean- The powdery blue hue is another color that Pantone expects to be big this spring because of its calming nature.
- Rust - The burnt red-orange color is said to have a season-less appeal.
- French Blue- Pantone expects this deep blue shade to be popular with people who favor the color and are looking for a new shade of blue.
- Green Ash- Pantone explains this pastel green color is restorative and regenerative and relates to nature.
- Burnt Coral- The pink-orange hue is said to evoke a sense of familiarity and comfort.
- Mint- Mint is a refreshing and cleansing color, according to Pantone.
- Amethyst Orchid- The bright purple color is one of Pantone’s more unique predictions for spring.
- Raspberry Sorbet- The fuchsia color has both warm and cool properties.
- Inkwell- The deep navy color is said to be solid and very intense and can be used as a great background color.
- Buttercream- The off-white color takes inspiration from the pandemic’s craze of baking at home.
- Desert Mist- The peachy color is a blend of cool and warm hues.
- Willow- The yellow-green shade takes inspiration from nature and greenery.
With the nicer weather comes more choices in picking a venue for your spring wedding with the additional option of perhaps having an outdoor wedding. Although spring brings warmer weather, it also brings the chance of rain. Remember the saying April showers brings May flowers? Having a tent and setting it up a few days in advance is the best option to ensure your wedding venue area will be dry even if your wedding day turns out to be a rainy day.
Incorporating seasonal flowers to your wedding is a great budget friendly and eco-friendly choice. Depending on where you are located the seasonal choices are many, from peonies, tulips, calla lilies, hellebores, roses, cherry blossoms, zinnias, snap dragons, sweet pea, hyacinths, delphiniums and lilacs.
Spring is the perfect time to celebrate outside since it’s not typically blazing hot yet. Line up hay bales and cover them with fun quilts or shabby chic blankets for inexpensive and clever outdoor seating. Another seating option is to set up a lounge area using garden furniture for a unique country garden vibe.
Boho and rustic wedding themes are also complemented by wildflowers and baby’s breath flowers. Whether you add them to simple mason jar vases for your table centerpieces or perhaps hang them on your wedding ceremony seats for a beautiful décor accent.
Although wedding venues have been incorporating different types of lighting in wedding landscapes for some time, they have become even more popular over the last several years especially with outdoor weddings. You can wrap fairy lights around trees, string across courtyards and hang wedding décor items even create a curtain of them.
One of the most important pieces at any wedding is the wedding cake and floral designs are all the rage for spring weddings. Ask your florist to set aside a few extra flowers that your wedding cake baker can use for decoration — roses, ranunculus, peonies, dahlias, and greenery are all beautiful options. Some wedding cake bakers will incorporate edible flowers to the wedding cake décor. If you don’t want to use actual flowers, sugar or gum paste flowers are also very pretty.
Refresh thirsty guests by serving up some delicious springy cocktails like mojitos with lime and fresh mint, margaritas with lots of strawberries or cucumber martinis. Add a special touch by freezing edible petals in ice cubes to garnish drinks. If you want to offer a non-alcoholic option and something for kids, offer a fruit water station. Fill several drink jars with ice cubes, water and your choice of fruits, like lemon and lime or watermelon. This is sure to be a big hit.
10. SERVING STATION
Wheelbarrows are great ways to serve bottles of beer and soft drinks. They can be painted to match your color scheme and filled with ice. Add some wooden signs and you are good to go. Slices of lime in a little dish are great for beers and sodas.
