There’s something really special about spring weddings. The temperature is mild. Flowers are starting to bloom (which means if you choose to have an outdoor wedding, it will smell UNBELIEVABLE). If “April showers do bring May flowers” (and your wedding is in April), you know what they say: rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. And, there are all sorts of beautiful trends, just begging you to have a ceremony this time of year.

Have we got you super excited?

How about taking things up a notch, by sharing with you some of this year’s biggest spring wedding day trends.

Pastel Color Themes

Easter happens during the spring season, so it makes since that pastel colors (ones like Easter eggs) would be making an appearance this year. From the bridal attire to the wedding and reception decorations, have fun deciding between sky blue, light pink, soft yellow and everything in between.

Tropical Wedding Destinations

On the fence about having a destination wedding? How do you feel now that you know that some of the top destinations are tropical ones? In March, some of the best places to go include Gran Canaria, Mozambique and Langkawi (in Malaysia). In April and May, Fiji and Bali. The temperature is nice and with the help of a travel agent, you can find some great deals on tickets and hotels too.

Donut “Wedding Cake”

Do you live for donuts? Great news! You can even incorporate them into your wedding reception. Sure, you can include them in a dessert table, but you can also arrange them into your wedding cake too. (How cute is that?!)

Neutrals with Bright Accents

I like how this one brings a lot of cream into the mix. Add the brighter orange and patterned ribbon from the other one, and I think we'd have a winner.:

Are you more of a neutrals kind of gal? Honestly, it’s kind of bland for spring. But you can take things up a notch and make it all really aesthetically-appealing with a pop of some color. Maybe khaki and bright yellow or coral. Or how about grey and teal? Maybe brown and fuchsia. The sky really is the limit!

Tier Tulle Brides

This is both pretty and adorable at the same time. If you look closely, it’s like the bride is wearing a wedding cake, doesn’t it? This is the kind of look that is fresh, dainty and modern all in one. Some other spring wedding dress trends include big bows, wispy feathers, deep V-lines, sheer streamer sleeves and light Pantone colors.

One-Shoulder Bridesmaid Dresses

What should your bridesmaids wear? Maybe a one-shoulder dress. We really like this trend because it looks great on women of all body types. Plus, you can alter the length or cut of the skirt to complement everyone’s figure. Some other trends to take note of: tea length, cap sleeves, two-pieces, sheer fabrics and cotton lace.

Peonies

We love peonies. They are so pretty to look at, fun to hold and make for some really awesome pictures! They’re also the kinds of flowers that you can’t really get enough of seeing whether they are in a bouquet or centerpieces on your reception table. (Hint: consider going with pastel colors for them too.)

Grey Groomsmen

A black tux may be standard for a wedding, but personally, we’re happy to see grey suits making it onto the spring trending scene. Other colors? Blue, tweed and even burgundy. (Yep, burgundy.) What does a burgundy suit look like exactly? Click here.

Late Night Reception Snack Food

Whether you plan on dancing well into midnight or not, have some late night reception food for your guests. Think “things they would eat while watching a late night movie or while they’re at a bar with friends”. Some ideas that come to mind include mini-tacos and margaritas, chicken wings and beer, mini-cheeseburgers and shakes, mini-grilled cheese and chilled tomato soup and/or chocolate chip cookies and milk.

Edible Favors

Why spend hundreds of dollars on favors that your guests will look at and say “Oh, isn’t that cute?” only to throw them into the trash a day or so later, give them something that’s a little cheaper that will be easy on their taste buds. Some individualized S’mores? An arrangement of candies? Maybe some bride and groom cake pops. For other examples, click here. They’ll be sure to tap into your creative side. Your edible one, that is.
