Spectacular Spring Wedding Planning Ideas

Spring is the season when nature is blooming in brilliant colors everywhere that you look. It gives you wonderful inspiration for gorgeous wedding decorations. WhereBridesGo.com has a few of our favorite ideas for a spring wedding to share with you in today's blog.


Spring colors

A lot of people lean toward using soft pastels for a spring wedding. The season brings to mind bright blue skies and big fluffy clouds. Soft shades of yellows, mint greens, and cherry blossom pinks are especially popular. Watercolor palettes are a hot trend this year.  

While many of the beautiful blooms that you will come across in the spring arrive in pretty pastels, there are plenty that show up in bright, bold hues too. Gerbera daisies, a wonderful spring flower, come in a beautiful variety of hot pinks, oranges, and sunny yellows.    

As far as your bridesmaid dresses go, there is no need to stick to only one color. Use a few different shades that complement each other, just like a colorful flower garden. Go one step further and put flowers directly on their dresses with fancy floral prints. 


Get outside.

Spring makes it tempting to host your wedding festivities outside. Everyone loves getting outdoors when it begins warming up, but the weather can be unpredictable. As with all outdoor activities, no matter what the season, have a backup plan in case of rain or a sudden drop in temperature.

As the sun goes down, there could be a slight chill in the air. Having warm blankets or throws available for your wedding guests is a thoughtful gesture. You can also plan to move the party indoors after the sun sets. 

"April showers bring May flowers" is a saying for a good reason. Rain showers can pop up unexpectedly in the spring. Consider incorporating umbrellas or parasols in your wedding decor. Umbrellas can take on double-duty for both rain and shading guests from the sun. 


Borrow from nature.

If you do choose to host all or a part of your wedding outdoors, picking a venue with lots of flowers and blooming trees surrounding it will do half of the decorating for you naturally. If you do need to add a little something, butterflies and love birds are wonderful spring symbols to use. A few flowers that are in season in the spring are:

  • Peony
  • Sweet Pea
  • Lilac
  • Ranunculus
  • Hydrangea
  • Tulip
  • Calla Lily
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Magnolia
  • Rose

For any part of your wedding that will take place indoors, bring some of the outdoors inside with you. Flowering branches look beautiful in vases on a table. Long garlands of greenery with a few flowers tucked in here and there is perfect for long reception tables. You can even make a few edible centerpieces out of seasonal fruits like apricots, oranges, or strawberries.  

For the ceremony altar, use large potted plants or trees for decoration. A few twinkle lights arranged within them looks wonderfully romantic. Potted plants also make lovely centerpieces and favors for guests. 


Nature can be the source for some marvelous wedding inspiration. Hopefully the ideas above have also gotten your creative juices flowing. You will find the perfect wedding accessories, gifts, decorations, and more at WhereBridesGo.com. After all, that is where brides go for what brides love!

The Tradition of Wedding Favors

Did you know? It is widely believed that European aristocrats started the time honored tradition of giving wedding favors . The first wedding favors were tiny boxes made of porcelain or crystal called bonbonniere. These boxes often contained a cube of sugar or other small confectionery. Because sugar and other sweets were rare and expensive, wedding favors were only given out by the wealthy. Over time, as sugar became more readily available and less expensive, even couples of modest means adopted the tradition of giving wedding favors as a sign of the couple's appreciation.

With virtually thousands of products on the market today, deciding which wedding favor to give can be a daunting task. You want the wedding favor gift to be meaningful, yet practical.
