10 Ideas for the Perfect Spring Wedding

Say goodbye to winter and hello to spring! It’s time for longer days, warmer weather, blooming flowers, and spring weddings! Spring is one of the most popular seasons to get married and it’s no surprise! With all the beauty and happiness that comes with spring, it’s only made better by an elegant spring wedding. If you’re planning to get married in the spring, read these 10 ideas for creating the perfect spring wedding.

1. Pastel Palettes

If you’ve chosen to have a spring wedding, it’s likely because of the beautiful colors with which spring weddings are associated. Softer shades and pastel palettes with blues, pinks, purples, and yellows are what many spring brides tend to lean towards. These color combinations create a light, happy mood on your wedding day. However, feel free to mix in some deep hues as well! Times are changing and spring colors no longer only have to be light and bright. The perfect mixture of tones and hues will give your wedding the perfect spring feel.

2. Flower Crowns

Spring is all about flowers, so for the bride who wants to incorporate flowers throughout virtually every aspect of her wedding day, a spring wedding is perfect! One area to incorporate flowers in a non-traditional way is with a flower crown. Flower crowns can beautifully accent your hair, especially for brides looking to go with a more natural hairstyle on their wedding day. You can keep it simple with a few greens and baby’s breath, or go big and bold with colorful foliage.

3. Fresh Fruits

During the spring, fruits, vegetables, and foliage begin to grow and bloom. Take advantage of what’s in season by having fresh fruit served at your wedding. Whether it’s served during cocktail hour or right beside your main course, everyone will love indulging in the foods of the season. With so much variety among fruits, there’s sure to be something everyone will enjoy!

4. Floral Dresses

Nothing is becoming more popular right now than changing up the traditional bridesmaids’ dresses. Brides are getting creative with mixing colors and dress styles, however the spring wedding trend on the rise is adding print to the bridesmaids’ dresses. In the spring, adding floral prints to getting ready robes and the bridesmaids’ dresses is a cute, nontraditional idea for your spring wedding. 

5. Flower Petal Sendoff

No need to heat things up in the spring with sparklers or fireworks. Get sent off from your wedding with real flower petals! This idea makes for the most adorable photos that really scream, “spring wedding!”

6. Spring Sweets

Among fresh fruits, bringing in spring sweets is sure to be another hit among your guests. Light, airy foods of bright colors are best for spring weddings. Try macaroons, strawberry shortcake, or lemon meringue pie. There are so many options!

7. Outdoor Ceremony

Though spring weather can be pretty unpredictable, especially in Georgia, it’s still a great time to have an outdoor ceremony! Spring brings some of the most beautiful days of the year. Surround yourself with the beauty of spring’s blooming nature and you may not even need much foliage for a beautiful wedding ceremony. It’s always good to have a backup plan though! At The Butterfly Pavilion, you can plan to get married in the meadow, but if inclement weather occurs, our pavilion provides tons of space to accommodate a last minute indoor wedding.

Spring is also a great time to incorporate lawn games at your reception! Give everyone something to do in the warm weather and bright sunshine of a perfect spring day when you set up cornhole, giant jenga, frisbee golf, or maybe even a giant scrabble game! The options are almost endless.

9. Succulents or Seeds

Need a wedding favor idea for your spring wedding? How about giving out succulents or seeds that your guests can go home and plant. They’ll be sure to think of you when they walk by their succulent in their kitchen, or as their flowers grow in the pot they planted outside. This is an affordable and interactive gift!
