Planning a Spring Wedding

Spring is the perfect season for a wedding. The first months of fair weather allow for outdoor ceremonies in many regions, and garden-inspired parties in others. Color palettes can be soft and feminine or bright and cheerful, and include pale greens, yellows, pink, lavender, light blue and even soft grays.

Many spring weddings are inspired by floral elements. Tablescapes may be as simple as a collection of mismatched vintage bud vases with single dramatic blooms – perhaps hydrangea, or garden roses, or in late spring the popular peony. Large watering cans or delicate teapots may replace traditional containers and brim with elaborate centerpieces. It’s fun to mismatch china patterns and glassware focusing on color instead of uniform perfection. Round out a floral theme by giving a seed favor gift. You’ll send home a little piece of your celebration for your loved ones to enjoy for years in their own home gardens.

Spring is a great time to celebrate a “Green” wedding. Begin with eco-friendly invitations. Use live plants and window boxes instead of cut flowers, or order from an organic grower. Feature local produce and flavors on your menu, and help guests conserve water by providing adorable daisy place cards to use as wine glass markers.

Choose the love bird theme and celebrate the season’s promise of new life and a new start together. Bird cages accented with flowers and greens are a fun design element and can be used to hold centerpieces, candles and even to receive your gift cards. Tiny artificial nests at each place setting can hold place cards or favors. Select “Spring Lovebird” themed table numbers to direct guests to their seats, or dangle escort cards from ribbons fluttering gently in the breeze from real trees. Use your imagination to incorporate the best that spring has to offer into your wedding day.
