Choosing your colors for your spring wedding is easier than you might think. Instead of a traditional white or ivory hue, try richer tones such as peach, lilac, or burgundy. Accent your centerpieces with neutrals and "muted" pastels. You can even include robin's eggs in nests as your something blue. Incorporate these elements in your centerpieces or on your invitations.
Consider seasonal fruit when planning your desserts. Strawberries and citrus are great choices for the season, and you can also pair them with white chocolate for a romantic touch. For more decadent flavors, you could serve custards, cheesecake, or fresh berries. These can be the star of any springtime gathering. You don't have to go overboard with your floral arrangements. While choosing springtime bouquets, keep in mind that these colors will compliment your theme.
Choosing your colors can help you set a tone for the wedding. If you'd rather avoid the flora of autumn, consider muted jewel tones for your bridesmaids' dresses and your wedding stationery. This season brings with it an explosion of color, and spring is no exception. You can select a single colour palette, or work through various shades of green. For example, if you want to choose a green theme for your wedding, you can choose foliage-only bouquets and have the rest of the wedding party dressed in emerald or sage green. Your centrepieces can be succulents, or other living plants, such as cacti or ferns.
Flowers are the most important part of your wedding. While fresh flowers may be cheaper, they can still be pricey, especially if you're purchasing rare species. Tulips and hydrangeas are beautiful options for your spring wedding. Wildflowers can also be mixed with traditional flowers, like tulips. For a more affordable option, you can opt for artificial flowers. There are also sale-priced vases to choose from. Another way to save money on flowers is to use vases that are unique to your theme.
Floating candles are a beautiful ceremony decoration. Floating candles can be placed on the altar, on the sweetheart table, or even the walkway to the reception. A few more unique, inexpensive items for the centerpieces are soup cans, baby's breath, and daisies. If you don't like flowers, you can always use sliced fruit to line the vase. Adding a few wildflowers to your bouquet is a good idea, but it doesn't have to be expensive.
The best way to incorporate flowers for a spring wedding is to layer them. While some flowers are available year-round, they might not be available in your area. During the spring months, the flowers you'll choose for your spring wedding should be in season, and flowers can be hard to find out of season. For a rustic, woodland look, opt for a wooden table and a halo of blooms in a vase.
