  1. Ethereal Bridesmaid Dresses

If there is a perfect wedding colour palette for spring, it has to be made up of softest pastel shades. Be inspired by nature’s sultry hues such as mint green, blush pink, sky blue, light grey, mauve or lilac. Made of light, ethereal fabrics such as silk chiffon, the bridesmaid dresses in these beautiful shades will look stunning on photos. To add a modern twist to the look of your bridal party, pick a different colour for each girl.  

  1. Outdoor Receptions

Spring weather is ideal for outdoor ceremonies and alfresco receptions. They are COVID-safe and absolutely romantic! Just pick a scenic location for your dinner under the stars and adorn the table with lush blooms and candles. Whether you are celebrating by the sea, in a botanical garden or the countryside, you can easily leave plenty of room between tables and chairs.

  1. Freshly Picked Look Bouquets

Traditional wedding flowers will always be in fashion. But if you want to add a modern touch to your spring wedding, choose a bouquet that stands out from the crowd. A selection of faux blooms that resemble vivacious seasonal wildflowers is ideal for free-spirited, bohemian-style weddings. The look to go for is ‘freshly-picked’, multi-coloured and overflowing!

  1. Intimate Weddings 

Rather than organising a traditional, big fat wedding, host an intimate gathering for a small group of your closest friends and family members. It is so much easier to create a COVID-safe environment and maintain physical distance. Plus small weddings are so much fun because they are laid-back and you get to spend quality time with each of your guests!

  1. Fresh Fruit and Florals

Think season-inspired decorations! Vibrant blossoms and fresh fruit will add zest to any outdoor reception setting, be it a beach location, a pretty garden or a mountain top venue. Just imagine fresh lemons paired with lavender flowers or decadent white faux blossoms and greenery garlands! 

  1. Floral Print Fabrics

Did you know that floral prints on wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses are all the rage right now? From Monique Lhuillier to Wendy Makin, Francesca Miranda and Elizabeth Filmore, many designers have created beautiful bridal designs inspired by spring blossoms. What a stunning alternative to a classic white dress! If your ceremony venue is a lawn, garden or a vineyard, the floral print will stand out against a vibrant green backdrop.

  1. Pretty Palettes

A wedding colour palette inspired by seasonal flowers and still life paintings is just what you need to personalise your ceremony décor and table settings! Create a design scheme that includes more than just two or three colours! Add a bunch of pastels to the mix including buttercup yellow, pistachio green, bubble-gum pink or lilac and play with natural elements such as green leaves to achieve a delicately textured look.
