Spring is a favourite season for many, and with good reason, too. With it, spring brings gorgeous new flower blooms, perfect weather and tons of opportunities for outdoor activities. After the last few cold and gloomy months, spring is all about good vibes and bright colours. It’s ideal for outdoor picnics, Easter celebrations and, best of all, a Spring wedding!
Getting married during spring means vibrant, happy colours like bright pastels with shades of pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. And the best part of planning a spring wedding? Well, it has to be integrating these beautiful colours into every detail, from the invitations to the dresses to the reception décor.
Here are some fun ways to add subtle but necessary spring colour to your special day.
First things first, your spring wedding invitations. The invitations are your guests’ first impression of your big day and can be lifetime keepsakes for your friends and family. The best way to portray your wedding theme and integrate your spring colour palette is by customizing beautiful, colour-coordinated wedding invitations.
For example, you can incorporate bright pink, orange or yellow spring flowers with elegant fonts on top of white backgrounds. This colour contrast will ensure your colours stand out on your invitations. After all, these customized invites will set the tone for what your guests are to expect from your special day.
Bridal Party Clothing
Another easy way to incorporate spring colours into your spring wedding is through your bridal party. From dresses to bouquets, your bridal party clothing choice is a crucial decision for your big day. Of course, you’re the star of the show on your wedding day, but the right bridal party colours will help tie everything together.
With that in mind, make it a point to colour-coordinate the bridesmaid’s dresses to your groomsmen’s ties or handkerchiefs. Pastels are popular for spring bridal party colours, as they complement the happy couple without being too bright or distracting.
Ceremony and Reception Décor
Your wedding invitations have been mailed out and bridesmaids dresses have been chosen; now, it’s now time to bring it all together with the décor of your venue. To capture that seasonal feel, incorporate colours by using spring flowers like daffodils or tulips at your ceremony site or as for centerpieces on your reception tables. But if flowers aren’t really your thing, incorporate subtle pops of colour in some of these traditional décor pieces:
- Tablecloths and runners
- Table-place cards
- Table numbers
- The guestbook
- Party favors
- Food stands
There are endless possibilities when it comes to venue décor, but simplicity is key. It’s all in the details, and subtle pops of colour go a long way.
These days, couples are opting for full dessert tables instead of just one single traditional wedding cake. Take advantage of this sweet trend by creating a colourful array of custom desserts like donuts, cake pops, cupcakes, cookies, and other sweet treats. Don’t forget to incorporate those fun pastels throughout the entire table display.
