Getting married is a huge event. Every detail matters from your wedding venue, to your dress, caterer, invite list, and wedding theme. In case you haven’t been browsing Pinterest boards for the past few months, there is some fantastic wedding inspiration available online. Discover some of the hottest ideas for spring weddings in 2018 to help finalize those details for a truly fabulous day.
Here are some of the hottest trends around.
Picnic Basket and Butterfly Themed Favors
Instead of candy, try handing out a custom bbq rub for your guests. They can “Have this rub, to share the love,” and will likely appreciate a tasty, yet unexpected treat to start off the grilling season. Butterfly and bird nest themes about with a spring theme too, and create a great starting point for your favors and decor.
If you’d really like to see your love fly away, you can even plan a butterfly release for your ceremony itself. Choose some beautiful monarchs that can soar into the air after taking your vows.
Spring’s Hottest Colors
If you want to keep up with the trends, don’t settle for last spring’s wedding colors. Check out Pantone’s latest hues to stay ahead of the curve. Pair Pink Lavendars with Almost Mauves for subtle bridesmaid dresses. Add a pop of color with Cherry Tomato, Palace Blue, or Meadowlark. Pair colors with catering matching Lime Punch and Spiced Apple with some refreshing beverages too.
Garden Greenery Brings the Outdoors in
One of the top trends in this spring’s wedding decor is to bring garden greenery in as decoration. In a season known for green and growing things, leafy greens and vines can add that extra seasonal feel to your occasion. Not limited to an indoor venue, this can also work outside too. Drape your reception in lengthy green laurel garlands, or add some eucalyptus for both fragrance and look. Use ferns and leaves liberally across tabletop settings and bouquets to set off flowers too. These garden greens pair well with soft spring colors like creams, peaches, and pink pastels.
When many people think of spring, they also think of fresh new produce and adorable animals like chicks and baby goats. Spring is a time of birth and renewal, and nowhere is that more apparent than on a farm. Capture this feeling with a farm-themed DIY wedding theme. Create some mason jar lemon meringues and add some hay bales drapes with light linens.
Chalk up some rustic signs to point to the venue and announce the happy couple. If a farm picnic is to your taste, create some basket-style centerpieces and a buffet of finger foods too.
Star Light, Star Bright
Don’t forget to take advantage of the mild evening weather this spring, and consider a dusky ceremony. Not only will sunset give you a great photo opp, but you can light up your venue with sparkling led strings and Edison lights. Test out some floating candles for a glowing centerpiece pair with the petals of your favorite spring flowers.
If fire is more your style, find a venue that will let you have a fiery bonfire to celebrate the passion of your love. Provide small candles (with a drip tray) to let your guests light the way.
A spring wedding is sure to be fabulous. After all, you’ll be there and your sweetheart will too. Take your wedding plans to another level with the hot and trending spring wedding ideas, and most of all– enjoy!
