Spring wedding themes

Popular choices for Spring wedding themes revolve around wedding flowers , birds and butterflies as they all represent the meaning and essence of the season. If you decide to choose one of these themes, you can carry it throughout your entire wedding from your invitations, to your cake, to your wedding decorations and wedding bonboniere.

Cake ideas:

If you would rather not pick a specific theme, you can make use of candelabras, wedding flowers, vases and drapes throughout your decoration scheme.

Table decorations

The colour combination of pink and green together is perfect for Spring weddings. Whether you choose to use pink roses with greenery, incorporate pink, white and green into a candle arrangement, or select a taller more striking centerpiece, with this colour scheme you can’t go wrong. However don’t be scared to mix it up a bit, vibrant color is also in. Deep red, hot pink, cool and dark greens, gold and black can all be incorporated into Spring weddings beautifully.

Outdoor Spring Weddings

Springtime is a popular choice for outdoor weddings due to the usual warm, pleasant weather and fragrant and colourful blooms. However, Spring weather can sometimes also be unpredictable, therefore if you are planning an outdoor wedding ensuring you have cover is always a good idea, and if not a back-up plan in case it rains.

Having said that, some of the most beautiful weddings are held in Spring; weddings held under modern, white marquees decorated with floral arrangements, tea light candles, lanterns and striking centrepieces make for beautiful photos.

And you can also have fun with outdoor ceremonies held in the afternoon sun. Parasols as props, rose petals thrown at the new bride and groom rather than confetti, and butterfly releases are just a few special touches to make your day even more wonderful.

Spring flowers

Flowers that are in season during spring include gerberas, roses, lilies and tulips- some of the most beautiful wedding flowers available. Multi-coloured calla lilies also look striking in Spring floral arrangements.

Flower ideas:

With your floral centrepieces or bouquets you could be more creative by incorporating the idea of wicker baskets, and for outdoor weddings you could use flower-filled clay pots, surrounded by rose petals or candles, for a great effect.

Spring bomboniere

Beautiful scented candles, butterly-embellished keepsakes, fragrant soaps and creative ideas like plant bulbs to symbolise the beginning of the married couples’ new life together all make wonderful Spring wedding favours for guests.

If you have decided on a theme make sure you incorporate it into your wedding bonboniere.
