Spring is all about new beginnings. What better time of year to have a wedding than spring? A wedding in the spring is a great way to symbolize beginning of your new life together and the way your love will continue to bloom in the years to come. Spring could arguably be considered the most romantic time of the year for a wedding.
If you will be saying your vows in a church, you may want to consider choosing a spring wedding date close to Easter. This is an excellent way to save a bit of money on church decorations as many churches are already decorated with beautiful spring flowers for the Easter season.
When it comes to choosing a theme for your spring wedding, the options are numerous. Spring naturally lends itself well to outdoor weddings. Garden weddings and tea party themes are great ideas for your spring wedding. Easter is a good theme to plan around. You can plan your theme around the religious aspects of Easter or make it more whimsical and use decor that is reminiscent of the Easter Bunny.
When most people think of colors for spring weddings, they tend to think of pastels. However, there is no rule that says you MUST have pastel colors for a spring wedding. Why not choose bright colors or maybe a mix of pastels and brights? Do what feels right for you and your personal tastes.
Choosing your attire for a spring wedding couldn't be easier. If you live a warm climate, you might want to look at wedding dresses in the style of a sundress. However, if your area is still a bit chilly in the spring, you can choose a wedding gown that is spring is style and pair it with a nice wrap or, for a more vintage look a beautiful white cardigan sweater. Another good way to add a touch of spring to your wedding gown is to add a bit of color. You may want to consider adding a sash that coordinates to the colors of your bridesmaids dresses. Many gowns also have embroidered details that add a touch of color. Another option is to choose a wedding gown in a color other than white. For your bridesmaids dresses, a fun gingham or polka dot print would be perfect for a garden wedding. For the men in the wedding party a nice linen suit is perfect to usher in spring. Add a shirt or tie in a color that coordinates with the bridesmaids and you'll have a winner!
Since spring is the season of blooming flowers, an abundance of flowers throughout your wedding will definitely set the tone for a perfect spring wedding. Flowers that are in season in the spring are Gerber daisies, roses, and tulips just to name a few. Picture a table set with Gerber daisies in a lush garden setting. This is the stuff spring wedding photos are made of. Since roses are in season during the spring, a beautiful bouquet of white roses accented with one or two of your wedding colors is the perfect choice to finish off your wedding day look.
