After months of chilly days and hibernating inside, spring weddings are a true celebration of the renewal of life—and of your guests leaving their homes for the kickoff of wedding season.

Spring is also one of the most flexible seasons when it comes to selecting colors for your celebration. Traditional spring staples, like florals,fresh greens, and bursts of pastels are, of course, go-tos for many couples, but moody blues or greys also work for March and early April weddings.

Ready to start planning? Here, six spring wedding colors to consider for your March, April, or May celebration.

Mint and Coral

Cool mint and coral is an ideal color pairing for a spring wedding. This fresh combination also looks amazing with pops of Champagne, gold, and white.

Here are a few creative ways to implement these wedding colors for spring:

  • Accent the bride’s white or Champagne-colored dress with mint jewelry or coral shoes
  • Outfit bridesmaids in coral- or mint-colored dresses and have them carry pale greens with pops of coral flowers
  • Accent the groom’s tuxedo or suit with a mint bow tie or tie
  • Serve mojitos with coral straws or cocktail napkins
  • Choose mint wedding cake accents, like coral poppies or roses

Lavender

Lavender is a gorgeous option for a rustic spring wedding. The color itself can be used as wedding decor and on your bridal party, but you can also use bouquets of fresh lavender placed strategically around your ceremony and reception.

Lavender also looks gorgeous with grey, white, gold, and greens.

Here are a few beautiful ways to incorporate lavender into your wedding:

  • Serve a rustic white or naked cake decorated with sprigs of lavender
  • Have bridesmaids wear a lavender dress of their choice for a beautiful gradient look for the photos
  • Serve signature cocktails with sprigs of lavender or choose a light purple-colored signature cocktail, like lavender lemonade
  • Feature bouquet of lavender on the spring wedding invitations and other paper goods

Sea Mist Green

Sea mist, or seafoam green, is a light blue-green shade that’s very popular for spring wedding colors. It pairs beautifully with white, gold, and coral or peach.

Here are some ideas for using this hue at your spring wedding:

  • Dress bridesmaids in seafoam-colored dresses and give them bouquets full of spring blooms like
  • Commission a cake that has alternating layers of sea mist, gold, and cream fondant
  • Use sea mist accent pieces as decor—think painted mason jars, vases, flowing ribbons, and tablecloths

Slate, Denim, or Other Moody Blues

April showers bring May flowers—and you can use blues inspired by the unpredictable spring weather as a gorgeous background color palette for your celebration. Shades of slate, denim, and dark blues work beautifully for an early spring wedding. Mix them with grey, cream, metallic, greens, and florals for a flawless combination.

Here’s how to use these various shades of blue at your event:

  • Use dark blue tablecloths and feature flowing florals and greens and centerpieces in gold vases
  • Have the groom and his groomsmen wear denim blue suits
  • Give the bridal party umbrellas or blue wellies if you expect rain for a fun photo shoot
  • Use moody blue accents, like vases, runners, ribbons, and balloons as reception décor
