What could be a more hopeful time for a lovely wedding then the spring? The skies are blue, the birds are singing and fresh flowers are finally pushing their blooms up through the thawing earth. Planning a gorgeous spring wedding allows you to use softer colours, beautiful, less common flowers and even makes it easier to find an outstanding wedding venue.
Spring flowers are perhaps the most delicate and prettiest of wedding flowers for your floral bouquets and arrangements. Your wedding venue can become a lovely garden complete with the blooms of April and May. Of course tulips offer a sense of sophistication especially when chosen in white. What could be prettier than a simple collection of pink tulips with a touch of lacy baby’s breath or sweet peas? You can also use tulips for pops of colour in bright yellows and reds. Peonies smell heavenly and are delicate yet large and hydrangeas are ideal for beautiful table arrangements. For more casual, country weddings, the Gerbera daisy looks delightful. For a touch of spark use lovely lilacs.
Spring is also the time of year for lighter fare or meats grilled to perfection such as lamb. You can do elegant asparagus appetizers and salads. Baby veggies are always sophisticated and sweeter at this time of year. Your wedding venue can offer ideas for cocktail party hors d’oeuvres and you can also serve refreshing marinades with a zing of citrus.
Pretty Wedding Venue
You can dress up your wedding venue to look like a spring garden complete with branches of cherry blossoms and trellises. Use plenty of candlelight and a welcoming décor that includes chandeliers graced with crowns of spring flowers to add a light and airy feel. Your venue should be welcoming with natural light for day receptions and have a warm glow and elegance for your evening reception.
Popular spring colours for 2015 include delicate blues verging on lilac hues and light and lovely, purpley orchid. A punch of yellow adds vivacity whereas aquas bring in a touch of beachy casualness. Leaf green is elegant and sweet especially when paired with the lightest of pinks. Turquoise is vibrant and alive and pistachio is retro and nostalgic.
Planning a gorgeous spring wedding requires delicate touches of unexpected colour, fresh and romantic flowers and lighter foods that delight and refresh. It is also an easier time to book your ideal wedding venue.
