Planning a Spring Wedding
Tips for the season of love!
March 2012 by Amy
Spring has always seemed to be the kickoff of wedding season. Winter is finally coming to an end, as flowers and greenery are slowly making their debuts. So how do you incorporate all the signs of spring into one cohesive vision? Here are some tips and ideas to help plan a perfect spring wedding.
Décor: Go green! Green is a fresh bold color and is our top pick for the spring season. Our favorite green embellishments include using small containers of wheatgrass to prop up guest place cards or choosing a green monochromatic bouquet to carry down the isle. In addition to greenery, using plenty of fresh flowers will give a nice contrast by adding a hint of color and a different texture.
Food: Choose a caterer that can give everyone a taste of spring by taking advantage of the in-season fruits and vegetables from local vendors. Foods to include would be fresh young vegetables and fruits like apricots, rhubarb and strawberries. Your wedding cake can also reflect the season with a refreshing berry filling or by using flowers instead of the traditional cake topper!
Colors: Springtime color schemes feature softer, pastel colors with accents of bright hues. Bring in shades of pale pink, lime green and white for a preppy palette or use bright oranges with hints of yellow. A great way to bring in color is through flowers, so keep in mind which blooms are in-season, like roses, tulips, lilies, or peonies.
Favors: With the season just beginning or in full swing, a perfect springtime favor is seed packets for flowers or herbs â€“ a sweet and sustainable gift to remind guests of the couple as they watch the plants grow. Another thoughtful favor for a spring wedding is to give handmade jellies made from in season fruits or a small jar of honey guests can enjoy long after the wedding has ended.
Of course no wedding would be complete without an invitation. Choose spring inspired wedding invitations or fabulous floral wedding invitations to set the tone of the wedding for your guests. Select an invitation to coordinate with your color palette or beautiful blooms.
