Spring is a season of rebirth and renewal. It’s when the the sun comes out, temperatures rise, and flowers start to bloom. So refreshing! It’s not surprising that spring is one of the most popular times to have a wedding.
In a spring wedding, decor plays a key role in creating that magical atmosphere. Since a marriage also signifies a new beginning, it’s worth focusing extra attention on the details. Not only is it fitting, but it adds to the romance. The best part of a spring wedding is that you’re not expected to be as formal—that is, if you don’t want to be. The event, and the decor, can be relaxed and laid-back.
Seeking ideas for inspiration? Why not check out some of these suggestions to capture the spirit of spring in your wedding decor.
1. Wow with Your Venue
The decor you decide on for your spring wedding will largely be determined by the venue itself. In some cases, you might not even need to do much decorating as the location will do the job for you. Some popular spring wedding venue ideas include a garden, conservatory, or any location that has a landscaped outdoor area. (It’s a great way to save money at the florist, too!)
2. Fill up on Flowers
It may seem cliché, but a spring wedding is the one time where you just simply cannot have enough flowers. If you think it’s enough, add more! In addition to bouquets and centerpieces, feel free to use flowers on everything you can. For example, you can use flowers or potted plants as escort cards. Opt for local or in-season flowers, if possible. Wildflowers are very on-trend right now and are not only fitting, but make your wedding more eco-friendly.
3. Reach for the Rainbow
As opposed to the muted color palette of a winter wedding, spring provides the perfect opportunity to brighten things up. You might associate spring with lighter shades, but it can be festive and fun to have at least one pop of color in your theme. If you don’t want to make things seem too summery, tone it down with white and greenery, which will go well with pretty much any other color you choose. And, of course, don’t forget the pastels, which never go out of style for a spring wedding.
4. Use Boho, Vintage, and Natural Details
One of the easiest ways to lighten up a spring wedding theme is to seek nature-inspired or eco-chic items. For example, use rope and twine to tie things together, seek out recycled paper for printed material, or maybe just opt for wooden furniture. Alternatively, look for vintage, rustic, or garden items such as wooden crates, baskets, birdcages, and fountains. This doesn’t mean your wedding has to be in that theme, but a few bits and pieces can create interest and add layers to your decor scheme.
5. Create Floral Photo Ops
A flower arch for a spring wedding ceremony is a must-have. If you have one, go big and bold. Right now, it’s all about having a unique and elaborate design. And if you want to go the extra mile, you can also have a flower wall for your guests to take photos in front of. This, of course, might get expensive, so feel free to use artificial flowers (or mix the two) to save a bit of cash.
6. Make an “Outdoor” Lounge Space
Even if your venue doesn’t have an outdoor area, you can recreate the same atmosphere indoors. Design a corner with a garden swing and patio furniture and, of course, lots of flowers and greenery.
7.Don’t Forget the Food and Drinks
The aesthetic appeal of the meal and cocktails at a wedding reception can incorporate decor as well. Consider how your dishes will look when they’re served and if they match the spring-inspired theme of your wedding. Choose light, colorful food and keep in mind that fruity, bright-colored cocktails will stand out on their own. Flower accents and garnishes on food and drinks, especially the wedding cake, are currently popular.
