Some things just go together. Champagne and orange juice, garden roses and peonies, southern sunshine and springtime weddings – all the stuff of dreams. While planning a wedding in any season is a challenge, it seems springtime weddings prove most difficult to find fresh inspiration. Pastels are the easy color choice for any April wedding, but be wary of falling into the Pinterest trap. The easiest way to customize your day this spring? Choose a range of colors to create a full palette and select meaningful details to create a design all your own. Stuck on how to include your chosen hues throughout the design process? We’ve rounded up a few fresh details to keep your springtime wedding bright, cohesive and all your own.
Monochromatic Invitation Suite
Give your guests the first taste of your wedding day with a single-color invitation suite. Use cool neutrals and white hand-lettering to give the suite a final finish without overpowering your delicate pastel shade.
Mixed ‘Maid Dresses
Who says your girls need to match? Choose gowns in various hues (bright spring colors look great on camera!), but stick to one single fabric to keep your ‘maids looking cohesive. There’s nothing worse than a mismatched bridal party that just looks like a gathering of guests.
Understated Garden Bouquets and Accessories
Celebrating a dainty, sweet elopement or small-scale backyard affair? Stick with a just-foraged style bouquet and pair with delicate accessories and keep the focus on the two of you. Your wedding day is about your marriage after all!
Sweet Save the Date Engagement Shoot Props
Kick things off with a bright pop of color on your save the dates. Choose fun props, like balloons and tassel garland or a tulle skirt to set a playful and colorful tone. Opting for a photo-less save the date card? Worry not! Include pastel graphics or paper to keep the pre-invite season appropriate.
What guest doesn’t love cake pops? Opt for styles different from that of your classic wedding cake to provide an extra pop of color on the dessert bar. Add a touch of edible glitter for an undeniably sweet touch.
Feminine Ruffled Confection
Looking for a way to include color on your cake without adding piping work? Opt for a delicate ruffle finish in the pastel of your choice for a feminine, understated look.
