Spring is a time of blossoming florals, pretty pastel hues, and fresh flavours. Add in warmer weather and longer days, and you have the perfect recipe for a beautiful wedding. There’s something magical about springtime weddings, and we’ve compiled a list of ideas and inspiration to create the celebration you’ve always dreamed of. From a whimsical garden party aesthetic, to a daytime brunch wedding, a cottagecore wedding, and more, here are seven beautiful spring wedding ideas.

7 Things to Consider When Planning a Spring Wedding

  1. Spring is one of the most popular seasons of the year to get married. If you’re planning a spring wedding, make sure to book your venue quickly to ensure you can get the date and venue you want!
  2. This also goes for vendors. If you have certain “big” vendors in mind (photographer, florist, band, etc.) reach out to them as soon as you set a date to secure them!
  3. The weather can be touchy during the spring (especially the earlier months). While some days are nice and sunny, spring is also known for its rain. If you’re planning to have any part of your wedding outside, make sure to have a backup plan incase of inclement weather.
  4. Pick the right colour palette. There are certain colours that lend themselves to spring, from soft blues, to shades of pink, to neutrals, and greens. Choose a colour palette that works for the season.
  5. Consider guest attire. Some patterns and fabrics scream spring, but may not fit with a more formal dress code. Of course, if you’re throwing a more casual daytime event, you can have more flexibility with attire.
  6. Choose a wedding dress, jumpsuit, or suit that works with the season. A dress with floral appliqué is perfectly suited for spring. Form-flattering silhouettes are also popular for this time of year.
  7. Select in-season flowers like tulips, garden roses, daffodils, and hyacinths to place in your arrangements, bouquets, and decor. This will help save money and give you more bang for your buck.

7 Spring Wedding Ideas to Inspire You

1. Throw a Garden Party
Have you always envisioned a dreamy garden wedding? There are plenty of outdoor venues to bring your vision to life. And if you don’t want to have your wedding outdoors, you can still embrace the garden party aesthetic. Choose a greenhouse or botanical garden venue that makes it feel like you’re outside, and deck out your venue with overflowing greenery, romantic blooms, flower walls, and hanging floral installations. Take it beyond the decor with floral appliqués on your gown, floral print suit jackets or ties, and rose-infused cupcakes.

2. Incorporate Playful Touches
Spring is the perfect time of year to add playful details to your wedding. From wistful venues like a vineyard, to balloon installations, confetti cannons, and colourful signage and backdrops, there’s plenty you can do to add a touch of fun to your wedding. When it comes to food, you can play on childhood nostalgia by serving upgraded favourites like grilled cheese, chicken tenders, and colourful rice crispy treats.

3. Create a Fairytale Theme
There’s something about spring weddings that’s incredibly romantic and you can cater to this with a fairytale vibe. Think: enchanting floral arrangements, romantic venues, and whimsical colour pairings like blush, peach, purple, and blue. You can line your ceremony seating with lush, grounded florals, choose a jaw-dropping princess dress, and add calligraphy to your invitations and stationary. If you really want to capture a fairytale vibe, look into castle venues.

4. Serve Thematic Food and Drink
Infuse spring inspiration into your menu. Have a floral cocktail as your signature drink, garnishing the drink with petals or adding edible flower ice cubes. You can also ask your caterer to present the food with floral garnishes to fit the season. As for the food itself, take advantage of the abundance of fresh produce and light, seasonal flavours. English peas, asparagus, radishes, artichokes, and rhubarb are some of the most prominent flavours of spring.

5. Go Cottagecore Casual
If you want a more casual vibe for your wedding, consider implementing a cottagecore aesthetic. This would be perfect for an intimate backyard or barn wedding. Cottagecore is inspired by rural lifestyles and countryside settings- it celebrates the little moments and a slower pace of life. A cottagecore colour scheme is often centred around pastel tones, with accent colours like ivory, beige, and antique gold. Incorporate vintage elements like handkerchiefs, vases, and mismatched china for the table scape. Opt for colourful wildflowers for your bouquet and arrangements, and consider using vegetables in your tabletop decor (radishes, squash and tomatoes are nice and colourful). Fill your dessert table with lots of baked goods, and implement patterns like gingham and floral prints.

6. Throw a Daytime Event
Spring is a great season for a daytime affair such as a brunch wedding or afternoon ceremony. Brunch weddings are typically a smaller, more casual vibe than evening celebrations. They’re generally scheduled between 11 am and 2 pm, with the ceremony happening right before. Your attire and guest dress code can be more casual and relaxed. Offer brunch-style cocktails like mimosas, bloody Marys, and sangria, and have non-alcoholic options such as coffee, a lemonade stand, or a juice station. Bring in your favourite brunch foods that everyone will love!

7. Get Creative with Favours
Close out your wedding with spring-themed favours. Having a floral bar and handing out personal bouquets as people leave is a super meaningful touch. We also love the idea of a live painter who can do portraits of attendees, which everyone can take home with them. Edible wedding favours are always a hit, and you can nod to the season with favours like jarred honey, macarons, or a candy station.

If you’re throwing a spring wedding, we hope these ideas inspire you to create the wedding of your dreams!
