The following are some spring wedding ideas to give you the inspiration that you may need to have the wedding of your dreams.

The Attire

Brides, bridesmaids, and maids of honor don’t typically wear long-sleeved dresses in the spring. Instead, they’ll wear something that reflects the season. The bride may wear a tea-length dress with straps or a strapless dress. If you are having an April wedding, scrap the strappy shoes for a pair of rain boots. This can give your attire a bit of a twist.

For the groom, a bow tie can be a very spring-like choice. However, this bow tie goes outside of the traditional black or white tie. Instead, a fun spring color that matches one of the wedding theme colors or stands on its own can be a refreshing choice.

For the bridesmaids and the maid of honor, pastels will work very nicely. Perhaps powder blue dresses with white or pink flowers are a look that will appeal to the bride and the ladies. Alternating dress colors is also popular. Perhaps half of the bridesmaids can wear one color and half of them another. If pastels are not the preference, then bright colors can be perfect for spring. Bright orange, cobalt blue, bright yellow, or bright green can be quite appealing.

For the groomsmen, ties that match the bridesmaid dresses will coordinate well. They can wear traditional black suits or you may decide to get colorful by having them wear colors that match or coordinate well with the bridesmaid dresses. If the temperature is hot, then light colored suits can keep the groomsmen and the best man from getting too hot when the wedding is held outside.

As for the flower girls, you can get creative with white dresses adorned in flowers. This is a great way to integrate the elements of spring into your ceremony and still stay true to your wedding theme and colors. To make their attire more interesting, try putting a floral wreath in the flower girl’s hair.

The Flowers

If you want your bouquets to stand out, all you need are some unique bridal bouquet ideas. Here are some of those ideas:

  • Peonies and roses can make for a very lush, romantic bouquet. Add some fresh greenery and you can have a very beautiful bouquet. If you like a more vintage look, try combining peonies and roses that are two shades of the same color.
  • Try creating a bouquet out of hydrangeas, ranunculus, peonies, brooches, and Queen Anne’s lace. This is one of the “busier” unique bridal bouquet ideas because you can create a one-of-a-kind look.
  • Paper flowers are becoming more popular. There is also the fact that paper flowers create quite a keepsake. You can make your bouquet any color you like and use designs that will draw a great deal of attention.
  • All-hydrangea bouquets – While this may not seem like one of the most unique wedding bouquet ideas, it actually is. Hydrangeas tend to be mixed with other flowers. In this case, you have a very lush bouquet that packs quite the punch.

The bridesmaids bouquets can be smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. Then again, they can be set apart by looking completely different. Any combination of spring flowers can be used as long as they coordinate with the theme.

The Reception

Chances are you are using a spring wedding theme, which means spring wedding cake ideas can come in quite useful. Spring wedding cakes can be adorned in flowers, can be multi-colored, or they can be anything you wish for them to be. Some spring wedding cake ideas involve different colors of icing and springtime cake toppers.

In addition to the cake, the centerpieces are very important because they set the tone of your reception. To make it very interesting, you can create a vibrant mix of flowers that are in-season. Another idea is to place flowers in crystal bowls of water and let them float. You can also add a nice touch, such as pastel colored mints on each table so the guests can enjoy them.

Be Yourself

One of the most unique spring wedding ideas and also the most common piece of advice is to just be yourself. You and your fiancé have very unique taste that should shine through in your wedding theme and décor. Your wedding should be a reflection of your personalities, which is what will make the ceremony one-of-a-kind.
