A Beautiful Spring Wedding

Ask any girl and she will most likely tell you that she would love to get married in spring. There is certainly some magic and romance about the way in which nature comes to life with a showcase of lovely flowers at this time of year. The delightful spray of color put forth by the beautiful spring blooms does help one to forget about the winter blues and look forward to a new beginning in all our lives.

It is no wonder then that spring is a popular time to tie the knot. To really make the best of a garden wedding, you could start planning in advance by planting bulbs, shrubs and perennials that will match the theme colour of your bridesmaids' outfits and wedding bouquets. For instance, pink azaleas would complement most pink shades of bridesmaids' dresses. Purple blooms would also create a great contrast to the white gown and the pastel colours of the bridal entourage.

For this garden wedding to be a remarkable success, you need to know whose garden you are using. It would be simpler if it were your own or your parents'. In either case or more so if you are renting a private garden, it is best to employ a professional landscape designer to take control of planting the desired flower seeds. This person will know exactly when the flowers will start blooming and will ensure that everything looks lovely for the big day.

The advantage of having a spring garden wedding is that the venue can also double up as the backdrop for those bright and wonderful wedding photographs that you will look at years later and cherish. This means that you need not rush to a studio or another venue, just to take those gorgeous photographs. You could save a lot of time and hassle by having it all done in one place.

When it comes to giving away spring wedding favors, the natural choice would be little boxes of daffodil bulbs for instance, that would bloom in summer and brighten up the lives of the guests you give them to. Needless to say, this is a lovely thought that calls for a lot of work. It also involves proper timing and once again it is best to seek the advice of a seasoned gardener to know when exactly to start planting the bulbs and what to expect in terms of blossoming time. Daisy, cherry blossom, magnolia, lily, lilac and hyacinth seed packets are other spring garden favors that will serve as a beautiful reminder of your special spring wedding.

To take the spring theme a little further, your wedding invitations could have a spring influence featuring spring flowers or scenery on them. You could send them as pocket invitations which are small and handy invites that are becoming increasingly popular these days. Spring also offers a great color choice for the wedding attire with pink, lavender and periwinkle being the well known favorites of the season while sage, mocha and light blue offer new options. Combining some of these colors to enhance your appearance is something to consider and the final look should reflect your taste and personality.

Creativity is key when planning a spring wedding and while much of the preparation seems to fall under the jurisdiction of the womenfolk, the men in the family can help by building flower arches or trellises that would lend a great deal of charm and grandeur to the occasion.

Spring: The Perfect Time of Year for a Wedding

Hurray, spring has finally arrived. It's been a long winter, and while the season has its own charm and advantages, there's nothing like spring for an unforgettable wedding. Here is our list of some of the reasons why spring is the perfect time to have your nuptials.

Spring fashion

Of course, for brides everywhere, the most important element of the day is their couture wedding dresses. Spring is the perfect opportunity for fresh, playful trends such as shorter skirts, layered hems, sleeveless bodices, and lower necklines. Plus, due to the warmer weather, lighter, airier fabrics such as sheer muslin and eyelet lace make the perfect materials. Check with your designer for spring styles and materials that would flatter your particular body type, and as well as accessories that will show off your best features.

Great outdoor weather

Dreaming of a garden or beach setting for your nuptials? Spring is the perfect time for exchanging outdoor 'I do's'. There's nothing like the fresh air and being surrounded by nature for creating romance. No worries about few light spring showers; garden tents give great protection while helping create the "look" and ambience of your outdoor wedding. Complementary ribbons, flowers, and lights to decorate the surrounding trees and vegetation can also help create the perfect fairytale setting, especially for night-time ceremonies or receptions. In addition, spring couture wedding dresses are perfect for layering; a sleeveless bodice or a fitted halter top with a matching dainty shawl or a structured lace jacket are a few options to consider. Check out bridal magazines or online bridal shops for ideas.

Spring Colours

Although winter colours, such as silver and white, are perfectly lovely and appropriate for getting married in, the soft colours of spring can be much more fun and flattering. Consider ecru, champagne, and pale peach as the base colours for your couture wedding dresses, and fresh fun colours such as pink, pale blue, lilac, and salmon-even a mixtures of colours-for your accents. Great tip: trendsetters claim that salmon is the new 'it' colour this year because it is flattering to most skin tones. Whether as your dress colour or makeup palette, you're sure to look amazing!

Soft natural light
Let's face it, matter how perfect, your special day will only last a day! Your photos, on the other hand, will last forever. The last thing you need is to worry about poor photographs due to bad lighting. Spring sunlight is far softer and more flattering than either summer or winter sunlight, and, combined with natural spring greenery, provides the perfect backdrop for photographs. No need to worry about filters or light diffusers. Plus, spring-coloured couture wedding dresses photograph much better than plain white.

Flowers, flowers, flowers!
If you're not the type for flashy jewels or harsh modernist d├ęcor, fresh flowers are the perfect adornments - both for you and your ceremony. Spring provides an abundance of choices for flowers, such as lilies, gardenia, irises, cherry blossoms, and lilacs, among many others. Chances are, your favourite flower will be in season. Splurge-use them in everything from headdresses to centrepieces to cake decorations, and let your flower girl throw flower petals to her heart's delight.

Elegant Yellow Spring Wedding Centerpieces

What could be lovelier for a spring wedding reception than cheerful yellow flowers? The sunny hue simply screams spring, and there are numerous beautiful options for yellow flowers in the springtime. Get your wedding planning underway with these ideas for elegant yellow spring wedding centerpieces.


Tulips are one of the signature flowers of spring, and they make marvelous centerpieces. For a classic style, long stem Dutch tulips in a vibrant yellow will look elegant and sophisticated in a clear glass footed urn. They would work well for the kind of bride who plans to wear a classic silk strapless gown with pearl bridal jewelry. If you like something a bit more moderns, try a bouquet of sunny yellow tulips submerged in a clear glass cylinder. It would look wonderful on a table set with grassy green silk linens.


Yellow centerpieces can also be very grand. A lush arrangement of ruffly French tulips, freesia, plump garden roses, and creamy orchids would be spectacular for a formal spring wedding. You could choose a cut crystal vase or a formal silver tall fluted vase. Picture it in an opulent hotel ballroom with chandeliers and quilted cream silk dupioni tablecloths. Surround the centerpieces with votive candles in cut crystal holders. The crystal will reflect the flickering candle light beautifully. This is a fabulous type of centerpiece for a bride who plans to wear a dramatic ruched satin trumpet wedding gown with custom bridal jewelry.


Flowering branches are a wonderful option for springtime centerpieces. Tall forsythia branches will look fantastic "planted" in cache pots. You can decorate the branches with tiny hanging lanterns, strings of crystals, or yellow orchid blossoms. This is a great centerpiece design for a space with very high ceilings like a tent. Create a romantic atmosphere by draping the tent ceiling with gathered ivory fabric and using gold chiavari chairs at the dinner tables. The neat thing about flowering branch centerpieces is that they look impressive, but are simple enough to assemble that you can make them yourself if you choose.


No discussion of yellow spring flowers would be complete without mentioning daffodils. They are the quintessential sign of the season, and come in a terrific assortment of yellows, whites, and oranges. For a sweet afternoon reception centerpiece, plant mini daffodils in glazed ceramic pots. Use moss around the base of the stems to cover the dirt. You could also use regular sized daffodils in several varieties as a classic floral arrangement for your spring wedding. Use them on their own or mix them with tulips for a riot of spring blossoms.


Yellow tends to be an underused color for wedding flowers, but it is truly one of the loveliest shades for spring celebrations. They work well as a pop of color in a classic ivory color palette, and they also combine beautifully with other hues like light blue, lavender, and green. Consider making a cheery yellow centerpiece part of your spring wedding planning design.

Top Tips for a Super Spring Wedding

It's that time of the year again! That time when all the couples you know seem to be tying the knot - in a variety of different ways. Many brides-to-be choose this time of year due to the range of stunning bespoke bridal gowns to suit the warmer weather, and with so much choice, and the advantage of being able to use either bright or pastel colours, it's no wonder it's such a popular time of the year for nuptials. Bespoke bridal gowns aren't the only consideration, however, and the fresh atmosphere of spring has relegated the traditional first choice of summer to second place, as the season all brides want to claim for their big day.
Spring has sprung and wedding fever arrives



One of the best parts about choosing wedding at this time of the year is the option to really take advantage of an indoor-outdoor venue. While this doesn't mean you should go crazy and have your guests standing around in a forest with the possibility of a thunderstorm on the way, having the ceremony outdoors and the reception inside is a lovely mix. The wedding party's bespoke bridal gowns will look extra beautiful in the natural sunshine, which will also provide perfect colour and lighting for your photographs.



Speaking of colour, the use of corals, blues and greens for your bridesmaids will complement your own dress perfectly. You can blend elements of a traditional white wedding with colours (such as teal or rose) to create accents that are both bright and classically appealing - an ideal way to add elegance and a bit of fun.


Otherwise, you could also go bold, with deep violets and blues paired with pale yellows and turquoise accented with bright orange, for your bridesmaids. For early spring weddings, why not embrace the shift of seasons by using a bright cranberry colour as your accent? Spring is also the ideal time of year to embrace an organic theme by using gentle greens and browns as your colour palette along with natural fibres and materials to decorate the venue.

Spring is the perfect time to go seasonal with your flowers. The freshest and best-looking arrangements will perfectly complement the gorgeous bespoke bridal gowns of your party. By the way - do remember to be kind to your bridesmaids. No, this isn't a warning not to turn into Bridezilla, but more about remembering that although you can take advantage of the bright and fresh days, it can often be a bit chilly early in the season, and many bridesmaids' dresses are not styled to be warm! Factor that in and perhaps provide shawls or wraps for the ladies that coordinate with your colour scheme.

Spring Wedding Dresses And Accessories - The Definitive Guide

Spring Wedding Dresses And Accessories - The Definitive Guide


Spring is a glorious time of year and ideal for weddings, but how do you make sure you're wearing the right wedding dress, are keeping your bridesmaids happy and have the right wedding accessories?
Don't make a mess of your big day. Read on for the definitive guide to choosing wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and the all-important wedding accessories.


Choose a lightweight material
Heavier, long-sleeved winter wedding dresses are definitely out for this season. No bride wants to be sweating their way down the isle. Spring is all about lighter, airier wedding dresses, floaty and flouncy fabric giving freedom to flaunt a bit of flesh.

Spring Wedding Dresses And Accessories
Pair your dress with a wrap if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Traditional or modern wedding dresses?
Opting for a lighter weight dress doesn't mean turning your back on more traditional styles of wedding dresses. Long floating skirts or gothic gowns can combine tradition with seasonal practicality.

For a breakaway from tradition, why not go for something slim-fit? Shorter wedding dresses can also really accentuate your figure. You also don't have to go for the traditional white. Many spring brides are choosing wedding dresses in peach, pink, baby blue and ivory.

Wedding accessories for spring
After choosing the perfect spring wedding dress, you'll have to think about wedding accessories to match. Subtle jewellery works best for the time of year, and don't forget seasonal flowers.

Other wedding accessories to consider are shoes. Any self-respecting bride will regard these as the most-important of wedding accessories. Some will even place shoes as more important than wedding dresses! Avoid satin, however, in case of rain.

Spring bridesmaid dresses

The same rule applies to bridesmaid dresses as applies to wedding dresses - go for light and airy and team it with a wrap. Some brides allow their bridesmaids to choose the style and colour of their own dresses.
If you want to organise this yourself, at least consult them on your decision. A perfect bridesmaid gift could be a wedding accessory they could wear on the day, such as a bracelet or necklace.
