Bright and Colourful Spring Wedding Ideas
I don’t know about you but I just love spring. The days are getting longer and everything is bouncing back into life. In short, it’s the perfect time of year for a wedding! If you’re planning a spring celebration then here is some super pretty spring wedding inspiration for you. These ideas will definitely make winter feel like a thing of the past.
Firstly, let’s talk colours. Spring is traditional associated with a pastel colour palette and this is always a top choice for weddings. You could opt for a cute mix of tones including pinks, yellows and purples and even light greens and blues. However, I’m a big fan of slightly brighter, fresher tones for spring. Not only do these zesty colours add lots of zip to your day but also, if you’re hit with spring showers, these hues will keep everything looking sunny!

Spring Wedding Outfits
For your spring wedding ensemble, anything goes. Vintage inspired dresses, tea-length gowns and boho designs are all perfect. Accessorise your gown with colourful jewellery (I love the coloured range from Glitzy Secrets) and finish with a natural look for your hair and makeup.
Spring bridesmaids look amazing in mix and match dresses and this is the perfect way to bring a relaxed yet colourful look to your wedding. You could add in patterned fabrics or opt for styles and shades that suit your maids. Depending on the weather forecast, bright umbrellas might be useful accessories and again, colorful jewellery is a must.
Your groom and the guys can also embrace colour for spring weddings. Cute coloured bow ties are lots of fun or, if your groom is feeling brave, a coloured suit is a fab spring statement. A big blowsy floral buttonhole is a great finishing touch.

Spring Wedding Flowers & Decorations
When it comes to flowers for spring weddings, you’re spoiled for choice! Think of daffodils, tulips, anemones, freesias, muscari and narcissi to name but a few. You might also have the option of blossom and the softest pussy willow too for even more texture.
To make the most of your floral budget, it can be a great idea to give your florist details of the colours you want to include and then let them buy the best value blooms when the time comes. This means you’ll get more flowers for your money and a totally seasonal floral look. I love spring arrangements in quirky containers such as jugs, watering cans, old tins or vintage glassware.
Continue the spring floral theme through your day – how about including a floral motif on your wedding stationery, creating a seating plan from packets of seeds that can then double as favours or setting up drinks stations and dessert tables decorated with seasonal flowers?
I love seeing wedding venues full of hanging decorations and while floral installations look amazing, they can be expensive. A bright, bold and budget-friendly option can be paper lanterns. Suspend them at different heights from your venue’s ceiling and thread fairylights through them for a fantastic effect.
Celebrate Spring Outdoors
Spring is definitely the time to enjoy the great outdoors again. Encourage your guests to make the most of the longer days and (hopefully) warmer evenings by setting up an outdoor seating area. Blankets, cushions, rugs and chairs will encourage everyone to make your wedding day last as long as possible.
