There's something special about spring weddings—the abundance of flowers, the pastel colors, the garden-inspired details. Not to mention the very season is a time of welcome change and warmer weather. Basically, what is there not to love about spring—and a spring wedding at that? The season translates perfectly to the world of wedding decor because we already associate pastel palettes—think pinks, purples, whites, baby blues—and pretty blooms with this happy time of year. (All essentials at a wedding, if you ask us.) So if you're a gal (or guy!) who loves flowers, pretty things, and sweet details, keep reading for our ultimate guide to spring wedding ideas. Our general advice: Embrace the season, because if you're marrying this time of year it's safe to say that you're a spring bride for a reason.
But before you start scrolling, let's speak specifically about blooms because we're here to prove that flowers can indeed be groundbreaking for spring. In fact, with that in mind we curated this entire spring wedding ideas gallery featuring (among other things) unique ways to use flowers at your wedding. We also looked specifically at all the in-season beauties—think tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, garden roses—because that's a smart way to save money and get more bang from your buck. And believe us, you're going to want that because we may have gone overboard with the flower inspo. (Think planted blooms lining the aisle, petals in signature cocktails, edible flowers on cakes, and an entire dance floor covered in a printed floral design.)
Even if flowers aren't your thing, we have plenty of spring wedding ideas for everyone. Keep reading to see what makes us think of spring, but remember that you can use these beautiful arrangements and decor ideas in any season!
A Bloom-covered Bar
This lattice-covered bar (hello, garden vibes!) features pretty pink blooms while also incorporating last year’s color of the year, ultra violet. Talk about a fresh—and on-trend—way to create next-level florals.
A Flower-lined Aisle
We love the natural, planted look of this flower-lined aisle! It’s perfect for spring, as the pastel-colored flowers look as if they’ve just come into full bloom. Plus, these wooden benches add a special touch to the ceremony setting, making it feel like an intimate garden gathering.
A Hanging Installation
At this real wedding, the dance floor was set beneath a floral sky, with delphiniums and lupines as a nod to the groom’s mother’s favorite flowers. “Toward the end of the night, our friends lifted us up above the crowd. We could reach up and touch the beautiful ceiling we’d been smelling all night,” says the bride.
Flower-pressed Cookies & Seed Favors
While we love flower-pressed sweets, we love this favor idea even more. At the end of the night, turn all of your guests into flower lovers like you by sending them home with a packet of seeds to plant. And as their flowers grow, they’ll remember where they got them.
