Three Questions to Ask Yourself if You’re Planning a Spring Wedding

  1. Schedules: Will your guests’ work and school schedules accommodate a Spring wedding? Are there any other holidays or activities planned for Spring, like Easter and Mother’s Day, to take into consideration?
  2. Cost: Can you afford planning a Spring wedding? If you’re concerned about costs, consider getting married in early Spring; many venues’ peak seasons don’t start until late spring, so you could score a deal on a wedding that’s early in the year. Shop around and visit these venues, they will be happy to work with you, especially if they are not booked for the dates you have in mind.
  3. Weather: Are you worried about rain or a slight chill in the air? Depending on where you get married, the weather could be unpredictable in the springtime. So plan accordingly, if an outdoor wedding is in your vision, outdoor tents can be heated if needed. There are always options to keep your guests comfortable but plan ahead and consider the options and costs.

Spring Wedding Ideas

  1. Soft and Romantic: This is such a classic wedding theme. Keep things white with a touch of gold and select blue as a subtle accent. This will add richness to your décor and wedding style. Select a variety of white candles and flowers to add softness and romantic candlelight to your venue. Complete the look with glasses and plates rimmed with gold that add a luxurious touch.
  2. Pastel Wedding Inspiration: What better way to bring out the colors of spring with beautiful pastels. Peach and pink are favorites along with dusty blue, sage green and pale yellow. Pastels are so soft and easy to pair together to complement your spring wedding style. White and  ivory can amplify the pastel tones, while gray and brown can add an edgy touch to the soft palette.
  3. Blush Wedding Invitations: Spring brings out the love and beauty in the world around us. Wedding invitations are where it begins. Select a blush color invitation with white lettering to create a trendy and eye-catching invite that will excite your guests. You can even add a floral touch to bring in the springtime look.
  4. Be Creative with Table Linens: Keep it light and airy for the spring time feeling. Soft printed table linens is a great way to elevate your reception décor. Add lots of glass and white, pinks and greens to the centerpieces to accent the linens. There are various options for the fabric, shop around to select the softest most romantic look for your tables.
  5. Flowers on the Spring Cake is a Must: Bring out the best of spring in your wedding cake. Classic white is the romantic dessert of choice.

Fresh flowers always please the eye, select garden-fresh blooms of yellow, pink and orange.
  6. Spring Wedding Receptions: Garden-inspired wedding reception ideas are a perfect wedding venue choice for spring. Decorate the chairs with flowers and green vines.

Think pink or white roses for a traditional look or daisies for a more casual accent.
  15. Garden Furniture Decor: Garden furniture can be a perfect choice for your outdoor spring wedding. Tents are always a smart idea to plan for any weather event. Garden furniture can create a dream garden party or can be used for patio seating at cocktail hour. Either way you can mix and match or keep a consistent look.
