Weddings in the springtime are simply magical. From the beautiful weather to the blossoming flowers, this marks the perfect time of year for a garden wedding. Whether you’re hosting a large ceremony or an intimate family gathering, here are some of our musts when planning the perfect garden wedding for spring.
One of the many benefits of having a spring wedding is the beautiful weather. Why not take advantage with a gorgeous outdoor venue? The added space will allow you to truly transform the area into the wedding of your dreams. You’ll be free to add extra props such as whicker chairs for your extended family, floral garlands, vintage backdrops and any other garden decor you may find. For a more rustic theme, you can also mix in some greenery and candles to make your wedding cozier. You can even add longer banquet tables if your venue is large enough so your guests truly feel like they are at a garden party.
Florals and springtime go hand in hand, especially at a wedding! While nearly every ceremony has flowers of some sort, a garden wedding in spring is the perfect time to be more creative. Go larger with a floral archway during your ceremony or even have your partner rock a patterned necktie if they’re up for it! Wedding invites are also a great way to play around with florals, whether you add a cute print or some watercolored flowers. You can even incorporate some edible flowers on your wedding cake for you and your guests to enjoy!
Keep your garden wedding light and airy with the perfect mix of pastel colors. Not only do these colors go perfectly with springtime, but they also make a flattering color for your own bridal gown or bridesmaids dresses! Not sure if you want to ditch the traditional white dress? You can still incorporate pastels into a variety of details on your big day for an etherial look. From elegant place settings to table cloths and hair pins, you can really go as subtle or as bold as you’d like with the colors. You can even opt for a pastel-colored cake to tie the whole look together!
Find Vintage Details
Whether you’re going for a more rustic theme or pretty in pink, incorporating vintage details throughout your wedding is both fun and memorable. You can add as many or as few as you’d like, such as picnic table benches for the reception and calligraphy sign-in sheets for your guests. If your venue is indoors or allows tents outside, you can even hang some matching chandeliers for extra lighting as romantic decor. Looking for ways to entertain your guests after the ceremony? Have some fun lawn games on hand such as a game of vintage croquet for both kids and adults!
