Style the Perfect Spring Wedding

There is no theme more fitting for spring than a garden party wedding. So if you really want to pay homage to the season, say “I do” in a greenhouse, arboretum, conservatory, or country setting where beautiful blooms and outdoorsy backdrops abound.

Whether you choose pinks, mints, blush, pale blues, or any other spring color theme design options for your invitation, you can’t go wrong with a matching pastel palette for the wedding. Dress your wedding party in pastel slip gowns or cream-colored suits and opt for colorful yet muted bouquets and boutonnieres for your VIPs.

A garden venue and theme also mean that you won’t have to do much in terms of decorating. After all, the blooms will speak for themselves. However, we do believe that you can never have too many florals at a wedding, especially in the spring. Welcome guests to your reception with a unique escort card display such as a wall of flowers: Work with your florist to select one bloom per guest and attach printed cards with each guest’s name and seating assignment to the single stems. Not only is this a unique way to help guests find their seats, but the flowers also double as a wedding favor.

Use oversized floral runners and hanging chandeliers of blooms to accentuate your reception tables, dessert display, and guest book table. Use blooms to decorate your cake as well- and of course don't forget to have your photographer capture your rings on those perfect petals!

If you find yourself gravitating toward a more rustic venue, but are afraid it won’t fit with the spring season, fret not—this wedding style isn’t reserved for autumn. Earthy tones and wooden details can create a charming aesthetic for spring and the outdoors. Kick off the country-inspired nuptials by transforming an open lawn , waterfront or wooded scenery into the perfect ceremony setting, complete with wooden benches for guests to sit on as you exchange vows under a wooden arch accented with flowers.

Inside the reception, use the nature inspired place cards to lead guests to their seats at long wooden banquet tables adorned with wildflower centerpieces and taper candles in vintage holders. You can also use the same design elements to dress up your dessert table. Display a naked cake covered in berries or wild blooms alongside other treats of your choosing—miniature pies, cookies, and artisanal donuts are just a few of our favorites.

And when the guests are on their way home for the night, thank them with a wedding favor inspired by the day’s theme. Jars of honey or jam or personalized packets of wildflower seeds feel right at home for a garden/nature inspired celebration.

The perfect nature inspired wedding day will always come to a close, but be sure your photographer captures the "golden hour" of your day with pictures inspired by all of the natural beauty surrounding you in your setting. From sunset pictures in the gardens, night shots at the rock walls, up-lighting in the flowers highlighting your silhouettes.
