There's no better time to get married and thus begin a new chapter in your life than the season of rebirth and fresh starts. But we don't love spring just for its metaphorical significance—we also love it for the décor options it brings to the table, quite literally. Airy fabrics, rustic elements, pastel palettes, and blooms of peonies, magnolias, and freesias are all spring wedding details that put a, well, spring in our step!
The transition between the cool tones of winter and brightly dancing hues of summer offer myriad options when it comes to styling your spring wedding reception tables, with endless color schemes to choose from. If spring is just budding, juxtapose the huskiness of winter with soft tones, such as a centerpiece of marsala and peach peonies or vintage gilded accents with a neutral palette of creams and whites, to capture the essence of the season's evolution. If your wedding is well into a spring whirlwind, opt for the vernal equinox's delicately classic colors—buttery yellows, baby blues, sunny greens, breezy lavenders, blushing pinks. And if your nuptials are just on the verge of summer, merge the two seasons by channeling summertime's playful color splashes at a more subdued level—think a toned down combo of hot pink and orange with white gardenias.
But no matter which way you go, the real trick to crafting the perfect spring wedding tablescape is making it look refreshing. Your tools? Arrays of blooms and heaps of greenery, the latter of which is in bloom since the dawn of spring as the first signal of new life. Even a dash of citrus (think fruit for centerpieces) will go a long way in bringing liveliness to the table. Spring is all about the outdoors, so celebrate nature's revival by festooning your table with it.
If there's one trend we've noticed, it's that with the exception of floral centerpieces, plateware, and the occasional table runner, the table itself is often left bare. A naked wood table is not only a rustic element of nature itself, but focuses attention on the flora and fauna.
Go ahead and indulge in these sweet, spring wedding tablescapes.
