Must-Read Tips to Make Your Spring Wedding Day Perfect

Spring is almost here, which means it’s time for spring weddings! The spring is one of the most popular times of the year for weddings and for good reason. The days are a little longer, it’s warmer outside, and of course, the flowers and trees are in full bloom! Spring weddings have a delicate and romantic feel to them, making this a very attractive time of year for many brides to be. 

Whether you already have a spring wedding booked and are finishing the final details, or planning a wedding for the following spring, here are our must-read tips for planning the perfect spring wedding. 

Incorporate Flowers into Your Decor

Springtime is when flowers begin to bloom which means you will have more options when it comes to flowers. Take advantage of the abundance of choice by incorporating flowers into your decor in varying ways. Here are some of our favorite ways to use flowers for your spring wedding.

Choose Seasonal Flowers

When it comes to choosing your flowers, choosing seasonal flowers will not only be more affordable but it will also give you a lot more options at the florist. By embracing what the spring season and all that it has to offer in regards to flowers, you’ll not only make your wedding more affordable but you will also be able to bring some of the outdoors inside by incorporating spring blooms into your centerpieces and bouquets. 

Add a Floral Touch to Every Place Setting

Placing a single sprig of a flower at each place setting will give your guests a touch of spring when they take their seats at your reception. Place the flower either on the napkin and menu or charger plate, and choose a color that accents the charger and table linens. Choose a single variety to use at each place setting or mix it up by varying different spring flowers at each person’s seat.

Decorate Your Wedding Cake With Flowers

There are plenty of ways to add flowers to your wedding cake, whether you decide to do a cascade of flowers down one side or simply by adding a few flowers here and there. When adding flowers to your wedding cake go for seasonal spring flowers for an added special touch.

Decorate the Sweetheart Table With Flowers

The sweetheart table is a major focus of the reception for the entire night, which means it’s a great opportunity for you to make it look extra special. The dais will also be featured in many photos throughout the night, during speeches and toasts for example. The sweetheart table is a great way to introduce a little spring into your wedding decor.

Since the table is much smaller, it doesn’t make sense to add another centerpiece as it will cram the table and make it difficult for you to eat later. Instead, try framing the table with florals or place vases or baskets filled with flowers around the dais table itself. Another idea is having your florist create a floral garland that can be laid across your table. 

Flower Crowns

Flower crowns are extremely popular right now and will continue to be popular in the years to come. They can range from subtle to bold depending on your preference and are perfect for all the women in your bridal party including your bridesmaids, flower girls, and of course – the bride! 

Have Some of Your Wedding Outside

One of the best aspects of having a spring wedding is that the warm weather allows for you to enjoy being outdoors. Even if the nights are still cool, you can still have your ceremony or your cocktail hour outdoors. If you have your ceremony outdoors add lots of flowers to the chairs and consider an archway decorated in flowers. This will give your ceremony a romantic spring feel that you can only achieve this time of year. 

Choose Bright Colors

While the spring is most commonly associated with pastels, you don’t need to feel obligated to stick in that color palette. Since flowers and trees are just coming to life this time of the year try to utilize bright colors in your wedding. This can mean brightly colored bridesmaid dresses, flowers that really pop, or even a bold tie for the men. Any way you can add in a burst of color is a perfect way to compliment your spring wedding.

Choose a Lace Wedding Dress

Not only is lace a perfect choice for a classic and romantic look, but it’s also ideal for spring weddings. Whether you choose a dress with lace sleeves, or some lace detail work on the bodice, this is a great way to incorporate a soft, romantic look that is perfect for spring.

Dress the Groomsmen in Blue Suits

While black is still the most popular color for men to wear in weddings, blue is the rising star. A blue suit is perfect for a springtime wedding. Whether you are having a daytime or evening wedding, blue offers a softer look that is ideal for spring weather while still offering a formal look. Another great choice, if you aren’t a fan of blue, is a light gray.
