Spring is an amazing time of the year; flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the chill of the winter is giving way to warmer temperatures and better weather—making it one of the most popular times of the year to get married.
If you’re planning to get married in the spring, you can, of course, have any kind of wedding that you’d like. But, spring does offer some great seasonal wedding theme opportunities, and if you want your wedding ceremony, decor, and other touches to give a nod to the season, incorporating a spring wedding theme is a great way to do it.
But what kind of trending wedding themes work well in spring? Let’s take a look at some of the most popular spring wedding themes you may want to consider for your springtime “I dos”:
As mentioned, spring is the time of year when everything is in bloom. So, why not go with the seasons and embrace a floral theme for your wedding day?
Making flowers the focal point makes sense for a spring-themed wedding. Featuring seasonal flowers will not only add visual interest to your wedding venue, but it will also lend a springtime vibe that will feel timely and of the season—without feeling too over the top or like you’re throwing a “theme” wedding.
Work with your wedding florist to choose seasonal blooms that go with your overall wedding style (for example, you might want to choose flowers that match with your wedding colors or, if you’re hosting a destination wedding, are native to the area where you’re getting married). Then, work those spring wedding flowers into every aspect of your wedding design, from scattering petals down the aisle to creating eye-catching floral centerpieces.
Bottom line? Nothing says spring quite like an abundance of fresh, seasonal flower arrangements, so, if you want to go with a spring wedding theme for your big day, florals should definitely be at the top of your list.
Fresh blooms are synonymous with spring. But, flowers aren’t everyone’s thing—and if they’re not your thing, not to worry. Flower petals aren’t the only things that grow in the spring; if you want to embrace the growth and renewal of spring—minus the florals—try embracing greenery.
Focusing on greenery is the perfect spring wedding theme, if you’re going for a boho chic aesthetic; it feels both laid-back and elegant, timeless, and on trend—and it gives a nod to the spring season without being too obvious or overstated.
Arrange greenery (such as eucalyptus) down the length of your table runners. Craft centerpieces out of succulents. Decorate your wedding arch with hanging greenery. Because greenery is on the understated side, you can incorporate more into your decor without it feeling overwhelming; the more greenery for your spring wedding, the better. Set the tone for your seasonal wedding with spring engagement photos incorporating greenery accents.
For many people, one of spring’s most memorable and enjoyable pastimes is decorating eggs in a variety of pastel hues for Easter. So, if you want your wedding to really read as a springtime affair, why not embrace the color palette of the season—and make spring-inspired pastels the visual focal point of your wedding celebration?
Soft pastels—such as lavender, baby pink, light blue, and soft yellow—all feel very spring appropriate, so using those colors as your wedding color palette can immediately inject spring energy into your big day. Outfit your wedding party in pastel attire. Work pastel blooms into your wedding bouquet. Outfit your dessert table in pastel-hued desserts. Pastels are definitely the color palette of spring—so if you want your wedding to feel in season, ditch the bright wedding colors and incorporate a pastel color palette into your big day, too.
Remember back in your school days, when formal dances were the most exciting nights of the whole year? Well, you can recreate that excitement at your spring wedding—by embracing a “spring fling” wedding theme.
Spring fling is a great theme for a seasonal spring wedding because there are so many different directions that you can take it. If you want to have fun with it, you can really embrace the theme and do a kitschy, school dance-style event—complete with streamers, punch bowls, and plenty of prom-inspired wedding attire. If you envision a more elegant affair, you can go formal with your spring fling theme and host a black-tie soiree.
The point is, “spring fling” is really just a framework; you can use it to create any kind of event that you want. So, get creative and host the spring fling that you WISH you had gotten to attend in high school.
There are plenty of spring wedding themes that you can embrace if you want to have a seasonal wedding, and these are just a few to get your creative juices flowing. Ultimately, you need to embrace the spring wedding inspiration that feels true to you, your partner, and your wedding style. So, get out there, get creative, and start planning your perfect spring wedding.
