Although April showers seem to have been postponed to May, and few flowers have yet sprung up, Easter has come and gone. The Spring Equinox is barely visible in the rear view mirror. So let’s talk about spring weddings!

Many themed weddings can be a little overbearing (see our 1980s post from April Fool’s Day). However, a spring-themed wedding can provide the unified feel of a theme without drawing attention to itself. In short, simply paying attention to what’s in season brings unity and flair to your nuptial celebrations.

Sure, pastels are never a bad choice in spring. But spring also calls up ideas of budding flowers and trees. Try bright and bold greens to embody the new life spring brings, or try a just-brighter-than-pastel color scheme.

Floral

Work with your florist to find out which flowers are spring bloomers in your area. We all know about tulips, but there are many other spring flowers to keep your wedding in-season. Seasonal flowers are easier for your florist to obtain, and they tend to be less expensive as a result, so your florist and your budget will both thank you!

Dinner

Your caterer can help you incorporate fresh spring produce into the dinner menu. From asparagus and peas to strawberries, you’re sure to find one of your favorite vegetables or fruits on any list of spring season flavors. And of course there’s the only vegetable you might think about adding to your wedding cake or dessert platter: rhubarb!
