Fresh flowers and bright pastels may be the first things that come to mind when you think of spring, but those aren’t the only aspects that can inspire beautiful spring weddings. For their spring wedding celebrations, contemporary couples are blending traditional themes with dramatic contrasts, like black accents and futuristic embellishments. Top wedding planners and designers have compiled a list of the most popular spring wedding themes for you to save now and refer back to in the future for more inspiration.
In this blog, you’ll find some new decoration ideas that you can use for your own spring wedding theme ceremony.
Accents of the tropics
Tropical wedding decorations are the epitome of sunny weather. It’s no surprise that a tropical theme is popular for spring weddings. King protea bouquets, ornate centerpieces, and bird of paradise boutonnieres will all give your wedding a South Pacific atmosphere. That said, it doesn’t always follow that you should stage a full-on luau; instead, you can save the plastic leis, tiki torches, and palm trees for pool parties.
To avoid having the feeling of a Hawaiian party pack, you might choose to enhance the traditional decor with tropical elements.
Add orchids, blushing bride protea, and palm fond as classy, elegant touches to more conventional floral displays. Even if you are on an island beach, you may blend the tropical flair with the venue and location where you are.
If it’s true that April rains bring May flowers, then the emergence of new leaves is the hallmark of spring. When you start to lay the groundwork for the next stage in your relationship, it will be pretty exciting to investigate the concept of new growth. Imagine seed paper being used for the stationery, potted planters of herbs being used as wedding centerpieces, and a cuisine comprised entirely of seasonal and locally sourced produce. Spring is the time of year when all of the flowers start to bloom, and it would be so lovely to plan a wedding that highlighted this growth if it were incorporated into the wedding ceremony.
Even while we’re all for breaking the rules every once in a while, we absolutely adore the fact that more and more couples are choosing to pay homage to the customs and rituals associated with weddings on their big days. Black-tie dress rules, engraving on wedding invitations, and formal send-offs at the conclusion of the night are just examples of the traditional aspects that more and more couples are including in their wedding ceremonies. (This will also result in a reduction in the number of after-party events.) What is one little thing that has stood the test of time that we absolutely adore? Those adorable little figurines of a married couple are placed on top of each tier of the wedding cake.
Why does everything have to be taken so seriously at a wedding? When it comes to the exchange of vows, we should be respectful, of course, but the celebration that follows the ceremony should be lighthearted and carefree. The sentimentality of bygone eras is making a comeback in the spring wedding theme in the form of whimsical locales like campgrounds and whimsical embellishments like balloon installations. You can take this concept to the next level by selling adult versions of classic late-night munchies like mac and cheese and crispy rice treats and by theming your picture booth after Marvel superheroes. Even confetti cannons can be fired off if you so like.
Even while there are a lot of couples who go to the past for ideas, there are also a lot of couples who are looking to the future for ideas and are including things like neon lights and 3D projections in their celebration. You may go all out with a neon lighting installation and pearlescent materials, or you can just add accents, such as a unique neon sign hanging above your bar or iridescent glasses on the tabletop. Either way, there are a lot of ways to make this theme work.
Garden of Imagination
The whimsical nature of spring helps to explain why enchanted gardens are such a popular theme for weddings at the moment. This style moves the event into a more verdant setting, whether it takes place outside in a well-kept botanical garden or indoors in a ballroom filled with floral chandeliers. This concept may be brought to life by including a variety of elements, including flower walls, flower walls with potted trees, overflowing foliage, and hanging floral installations.
And it isn’t just limited to the plants either. You can also apply this concept to the tabletop decor, the confections you make, and even your attire. The utilization of patterned linens results in a stunning foundation for your place setting and adds dimension to the overall design. In addition, three-dimensional appliqués on bridal gowns, tuxedo jackets with floral prints, and desserts with rose flavoring all contribute to the overall atmosphere.
