Simple and Fun Ways to Style Your Spring Wedding
Now that the first month of spring is upon us there is no better time to delve into our top picks for clever ways to style your wedding to suit the season.
Spring is all about welcoming fresh, warm and sweet colour palettes and styling to illustrate the emergence of the warmer weather. When it comes to colours there are two popular streams that you can choose to implement. The first is to use an array of complementary pastel tones. Mint, blush, soft corals and light blues are highly popular colour options that many spring weddings feature. This softer palette is ideal for brides opting for a classic wedding style with a subtle modern twist. Other bridal couples looking for a distinctly modern flair will opt for vibrant pops of colour to provide eye catching details to their wedding décor. Bright shades will enhance a fun and celebratory environment perfect for springtime wedding festivities. Spring is the ideal time of year to really have fun with your wedding colour schemes and embrace the essence of the season. So get your colour wheels out and start experimenting.
All weddings will feature flowers within their styling to some degree but spring is all about the emergence of beautiful blossoming blooms. With the ideal conditions and many flowers coming into season, there is no reason not to include an abundance of flowers within your wedding ceremony and reception set ups. For those on a budget negotiate with your florist for seasonal flowers that will give you the same effect and appearance as more high end blooms. Your florist will be able to work to your budget needs and will be able to create striking colourful arrangements that have a real impact.
Spring is also a fantastic time to experiment with patterns and floral motifs. You might even like to include graphics of birds or butterflies throughout your décor. Wedding stationery and linen offer the perfect opportunity to have some fun with your styling. Perhaps your place cards feature a sweet image of a bird or maybe your table number cards have a chevron background. Accenting your tables with wedding stationery is the perfect way to tie your wedding theme and styling altogether.
More clever spring wedding ideas include using table cloths and runners which are a great way to break up your décor and provide interest to your wedding tables. Polka dot, striped and gingham pattern table cloths all make for unique spring wedding table decorations.
For a truly spring time affair why not incorporate fresh fruit like berries into your table decorations. You can even make centrepieces out of lemons and limes. An example of this is having a vase full of lemons or having the lemons piled at the bottom and topped with flowers. Lemons, apples and limes all work particularly well for modest yet truly unique centrepieces. For daytime wedding receptions consider a picnic inspired theme with picnic baskets for your centrepieces, gingham patterned table cloths and delectable sandwiches as appetizers.
Speaking of food opt for a light and refreshing menu that consists of fresh season produce. Hearty dishes are better suited to winter menus so opt for meals that play with flavours and won’t leave your guests too full to hit the dance floor. For refreshments, punch bowls or distinct drinks station with old fashioned dispensers are the ultimate in styling and practicality. Combine your refreshments with Mason jar glasses and colourful straws, and we can guarantee your guests will be swooning at the effort you’ve gone to.
Colourful frosted cakes or confectionary used to make up stylish dessert/candy buffets that complement your wedding styling are ideal for bringing your wedding colours to the forefront. The key to successfully styling a spring wedding and moreover weddings from all seasons is to pick the colours and ambiance you wish to create and stick to it.
