Weddings in the spring are the perfect way to celebrate your new union. After all, it is the season of rebirth and growth, and getting married is like creating a whole new family. As an event stylist, I’ve found that spring weddings are best done outside: this really highlights the gorgeous beauty of a world coming alive after a long winter.
When it comes to creating wonderful spring weddings, it is important to find decor that match your surroundings. To me, this is one of the most fun and exciting parts of decorating. Thankfully, I have a ton of ideas on how to turn your spring wedding into one you’ll never forget. Here’s just a few of my simple ideas and a few links to sites that illustrate ways they can be executed.
Tape Into The Decorative Powers Of Flowers And Moss
Flowers are gorgeous and all weddings need an incredible bouquet to make it more memorable and gorgeous. However, I’ve found that a large number of people don’t use flowers in a very natural way. When doing a spring wedding, I like to use flowers and a little touch of natural moss to make it look more alive and vibrant.
This includes placing flowers in a way that makes them seem like a natural part of the scenery, including planting them along paths or hanging them from vines. Ideas like this are simple enough to execute and are a joy to make. Consider these fun pictures on Pinterest to get an idea of what I’m talking about here.
Classic Gardening Chic
Is there anything that screams “spring” more than gardening? If so, I haven’t found it yet. Integrating some classic gardening chic into your wedding decorations can make it feel more spring than ever.
This doesn’t mean you and your hubby have to dress up like farmers or gardeners. It just means adding a few light touches that make your garden stand out in exciting ways. A few items that I like to integrate into a spring wedding include:
- Cute metal watering cans
- Hoes and other gardening tools
- Various plants and decorative items
The idea here is to create a look that makes your wedding more austere and old-fashioned. In this way, you can have a classic style that everyone will remember for years.
Butterflies For Your Decorations
When you see butterflies flying through the air, you know spring has finally come! That’s why I always like to integrate some adorable butterfly decorations into a spring wedding. Take a look here to get a feel for a few ideas I’ve used in the past. Butterflies can be used in a wedding as:
- Streamers dangling down from the ceiling
- Items to decorate you and your bridesmaids
- Decorative printouts on your tablecloths
- Cute plastic versions hanging from the ceiling
- A release of ceremonial wedding butterflies
Make sure to match your color scheme to the different butterflies you use.
With your spring wedding, you’re going to want a handsome arch to walk through before going down the aisle. An all-natural arch made out of wood is one of the best ways to create an effective outdoor spring wedding.
This cool site highlights some great concepts. I’m particularly a big fan of the first, which uses those cool thick wooden strips to create a gorgeous arch. You can also hang flowers, moss, and other fun spring decorative items from this arch to create a memorable style.
