Is there something more magical than a spring wedding? Everything is blossoming, all the most beautiful flowers are in season, trees are green, the birds are singing and the sun is shining just right – absolutely perfect. Organizing a spring wedding is a true joy, but that does not mean that you are free of considering the color themes, flowers, decoration, drinks, venues, dresses, etc. Anyone could get lost in the abundance of this season, so if you need some help of getting the very best of spring, here is a guide on planning a seasonal wedding.
Choosing the Color Palette
Spring allows you to play with bright and bold color themes, but it is also perfect for gentle and romantic pastel palettes. One of the trendiest palettes this year is, of course, according to Pantone’s choice the combination of Rose Quartz (mild and warm pink) and Serenity (cool peaceful blue). Other color themes to chose from are invigorating turquoise + coral + white, turquoise + royal blue + gold, aquamarine + lavender + grey, lavender + pink, pink + peach + tangerine, teal + white + tangerine, copper + toasted almond + gold, etc.
Flowers make a major part of the wedding decoration and when spring arrives, they are at their best. Sometimes even so that it is difficult to choose the best ones out of that plentitude. Some of the most gorgeous floral varieties in this season are the beautiful bloom of peony, the classic rose, elegant sweet pea, the nostalgia-evoking lilac, stylish ranunculus, full floral of hydrangea, streamlined and rustic tulips, simple and sweet calla lily, bold and quirky gerbera daisy and sophisticated magnolia. You can use them alone or combine them for the centerpieces and the bouquet.
The Dresses and Suits
The ultimate spring wedding dress hit is a boho wedding dress, but you can also opt for the classical apparel. Gentle hues and lightweight fabrics (oh yes, lace) should be your guides, but you can add some colors with the shoes and accessories. The groom can suit up in a lighter-colored suit made of fabrics like khaki or seersucker. The same goes for the groomsmen. The maid of honor and bridesmaids can wear the dresses which fit into the overall color palette. Some amazing trends for flower girl dresses are laced sleeves, Hollywood glam maxi dress and bow on the back, so try them on.
The Venue + Foods and Drinks
The best venue for a spring wedding is of course outdoors on a green surface (a large garden, park, etc.). Just make sure there is a roofed hideout as an option, because this season can often surprise us with a sudden rain. Depending on your wedding theme you can decorate the outdoor space with colorful details or simpler vintage and romantic decorative elements (decoupage items are perfect for this occasion). Seasonal local food can not only save you the money, but also bring more flavors to the table and thrill the guests. As for the drinks, the fruity beverages and cocktails will best reflect the spirit of this cheerful season.
Spring is made for providing couples their dream weddings, and if you do your best to adapt the venue, clothes, colors and other elements to this sunny season, you will truly have the most perfect big day there is. Good luck and congratulations.
