A wedding at any time of year is beautiful, but there is something special about a spring wedding. That’s probably why spring is the kick-off to the wedding season! Spring is a time of new growth, with budding trees and the first flowers of the year. What better season to begin a new life together as a married couple? If your wedding date is set for the spring, why not incorporate elements of the season into your wedding? From spring colors to spring flowers, there are so many ways to highlight the spring season in your wedding. Here are some great spring wedding ideas.
Utilize spring wedding colors for your palette
Watercolor tones are totally on-trend right now. These soft colors perfectly fit a spring wedding. You may choose to keep a monochromatic color theme. For example, if pink is your favorite color, you could stick with soft pink hues throughout your wedding. If the monochromatic look isn’t your thing, choose a few complementary colors to work with, such as pastel blue and purple. There are so many ways to incorporate your wedding colors into the big day. The obvious choices are the bridesmaid dresses and wedding flowers. But consider adding some elegance to your spring wedding by carrying your colors throughout the entire wedding.
You can use the same colors for your save-the-date cards, invitations, table runners–even in the ribbons on your wedding favors! You don’t have to go overboard. Instead of solid pink invitations, think of including pink somewhere in the design. These subtle design choices will give your wedding a consistent, sophisticated feel.
Choose a “foodie” wedding theme for your reception
The ceremony is beautiful, but the wedding reception is a real celebration. One popular wedding trend is to incorporate locally-sourced and seasonal elements into the reception menu. Spring offers so many fantastic seasonal choices that fit in with an upscale wedding dinner. Consider fresh asparagus, the first peas of the season, or locally-foraged mushrooms as part of your appetizers or the main course. Another way to add local ingredients to your wedding is to decorate your wedding cake with locally-grown, edible flowers. A knowledgeable caterer such as Classic Catering can advise you on the best ways to add fresh, local flare into your wedding reception. A local caterer such as CK Catering offers great variety and high-quality foods.
Hold your wedding ceremony, reception, or both outside
There is no better way to capitalize on the spring season than to choose an outdoor wedding venue. Whether you get married in a church and choose an outdoor site for the reception or if you have both in the same space, an outdoor venue brings spring right into your wedding. After being cooped up all winter, an outdoor wedding is truly a breath of fresh air. You won’t even have to go to great lengths to showcase spring–your outdoor site will do that for you. If you choose an outdoor venue, be prepared for all contingencies. Can you bring the party inside if it rains? Should you rent a tent or space heaters? An experienced wedding coordinator can help you plan for any kind of weather.
