Spring is in full swing and we couldn’t be happier about it. There is something distinctly enchanting about this time of year. It is a renaissance of all things romantic and refined, including some of our favorite flowers: cherry blossoms, tulips, and of course, peonies.
We encourage brides who are planning a spring wedding to be inspired by what nature has to offer during this time. It is a perfect opportunity to let your style reflect the spirit of the season. How better to do so than with mismatched yet coordinating floral gowns for your bridesmaids? When it comes to floral design, moodier sources of inspiration need not be forgotten all together. We love a transitional bouquet featuring bountiful seasonal blooms in pastel hues alongside subtle hints of plum and maroon.
For a cohesive look, let the season inspire other elements of your décor as well. We adore the idea of topping cocktails or tarts with springtime flowers that are as delicious as they are decorative. Alternatively, you can easily execute a spring inspired look with a watercolor escort card display, a whimsical floral arbor or a simple crown of greenery for each of your flower girls. Perhaps you might consider choosing a venue situated partially or completely outdoors. This will allow your surroundings to bestow their own natural ambiance.
In our minds, spring evokes old-world images of maidens dancing in fields, al fresco dinner parties featuring farm-to-table fare, rays of sunshine filtering through magnolia trees and gentle sheep wandering through the countryside. It makes us think of simpler times when emphasis was placed on authentic gatherings – with naturally occurring doses of color and playfulness – centered around joyful kinship. Those who appreciate this particular brand of nostalgia can embrace an effortlessly vibrant aesthetic when planning their springtime celebration.
Selecting your wedding color palette is one of the most important aesthetic decisions that you'll make for your wedding. Your chosen hues should work well with the venue while also fitting with your personal style. It's no surprise that our hearts always fall for a pastel palette!
