Inspiration for Your spring wedding
The spring season provides a lot of inspiration for weddings held during this time as they can be filled with pretty colours, beautiful flowers and the chance of warmer weather…
Use an abundance of flowers
Nothing says Spring more than lots of fresh, beautiful blooming flowers. Peonies, tulips, lavender and daffodils are all spring flowers that make lovely bouquets and decorative arrangements. Wonderful wildflower bouquets are also great for the season; full of colour and life. Remember flowers can be used in many ways to dress up your barn wedding venue Essex, such as wreaths, arches and chandeliers.
Choose soft colour palettes
Using the soft colour palettes often associated with Spring is a great way to honour the season. Choose romantic colours, such as pale pink and sage green, or opt for powdery pastel shades of blue, pink, lilac and yellow. Using these colours will give your wedding a bright and airy feeling in the venue.
Have an outside space
If you’ve chosen to have a Spring wedding then it makes sense to utilise any outdoor space the venue has to offer. As we all know, British weather is temperamental at all times of the year, so have a contingency plan to account for really warm weather (such as handing out sun cream and fans) or rain and showers (like umbrellas for the guests).
Fragrance can be massively emotive, so is a great way to create a full experience for yourself and your guests. Use scented candles, room sprays and fresh herbs to inject your venue with spring smells. Scents associated with spring include lavender, rose, pink grapefruit and gardenia. You could even give a bottled room spray in your signature wedding scent to every guest as your wedding favour.
Theme your food
The meal is a big part of your special day, so don’t overlook it when making plans. For a spring theme, design a menu packed with seasonal vegetables (carrots, asparagus, cauliflower) and fresh fruit (raspberries and strawberries). You can also use garnishes like edible flowers.
Give a nod to Easter
If your Spring wedding falls around the time of Easter then you can use that to your advantage. An Easter egg hunt can provide fantastic entertainment to any attending children – and adults! – allowing them to explore the venue, run off some energy and get a reward at the end of it too.
Give your outfits a seasonal touch
Brides should consider saying no to a traditional white dress and embracing something more fun and modern; a floral dress. There are many ways to make a floral dress your own, from going all out in a colourful printed frock to opting for a more subtle flowery beaded number in a plain colour. Grooms can also get in the seasonal mood with personalised ties and pocket squares in pastel colours or floral designs.
Spring always proves a popular time of year to tie the knot and it’s easy to see why with the plethora of inspiration.
