Spring has officially sprung! It’s time to kiss the jewel tones, Christmas lights and snowy decor goodbye and replace it with bolder and brighter trimmings. From conservatory venues to flower pot centrepieces to wheelbarrows filled with beer, we’ve rounded up all of our favourite ideas for spring weddings to help you plan something unforgettable that puts the season’s best to use. 

Here are spring wedding ideas

Conservatory venue

First things first, choosing your venue. We suggest opting for a conservatory or garden venue so that you can embrace those clear blue skies, blooming flowers and good weather on your big day.

Chiswick House & Gardens

Watercolour invitations

Ask your wedding stationer to whip up some whimsical watercolour invitations for your big day. You get bonus points if you work a bit of flora and fauna into your design (that’s super spring-y).

Fresh makeup

Yes, Kardashian-inspired glam looks are totally awesome, but if you’re having a spring wedding, we recommend keeping things light and fresh. Go for a natural wedding makeup look that shows off your best features and keeps you looking like, well, you.

Green groom accessories

Green is pretty much the unofficial colour of spring. Work it into your groom attire by rocking an emerald-hued tie, pocket square, socks and other accessories. If you really love the colour and are feeling bold, you could even rock a head-to-toe green suit.

Pastel bridesmaids dresses

Mint green, baby pink, sky blue and all the other pastel colours of the rainbow are perfect for the spring season, and, good news, you don’t have to choose just one! Each of your bridesmaids can wear a different hue to shake things up (just be sure to tie everything together with matching bouquets and/or accessories).

Jacket

The sun may be out a little more, but it’s not summer yet. Add a light jacket or cover up over your wedding dress so that you don’t chatter through your wedding vows or spend your wedding photo session shaking and shivering.

Nothing says spring more than a bright and colourful bouquet. Fill yours with roses, tulips, snapdragons and more of your favourite garden blooms.

Tulip Buttonholes

Make your groom and groomsmen attire a bit more spring appropriate by adding tulip buttonholes to your lapels.

VJ Flowers

Floral Love letters

Create a floral sign packed with your favourite flowers. You can choose a cute word that encapsulates those wedding vibes (like ‘love’), spell out your last name or write wedding hashtag in blooms.

Apple and Bramble Events

Ribbon altar backdrop

Looking to do something a little different with your altar? A pastel ribbon backdrop will make it really stand out. This works for both indoor and open-air ceremonies and looks particularly dreamy when a breeze runs through it.

Toast Events

Nest ring pillow

Instead of using a ring box, tote your bands down the aisle on a beautiful nest ring pillow. It’s unique, looks amazing in photos and totally suits a woodsy or garden theme.

Woodland Blossoms

Floral stamps

Stamp your invitation envelopes and wedding signage with images of your favourite varieties of flowers, trees, birds, bees and other garden dwellers.

Sparkles & Stuff

Cherry blossom ceremony decorations

Tree wedding tree decor is pretty much a must for a spring celebration. Work it into your ceremony by surrounding your altar or entranceway with big and beautiful cherry blossom trees. They’re extra dreamy and will make your space look straight out of a fairytale.

Parasols

Everyone loves the sun, but there is such a thing as too much of it. If you’re having a good portion of your event outdoors, have a few parasols on hand so that your guests can get some shade if they need it.

Umbrellas for Weddings

Wellies

If rain is expected on your wedding day or the ground is a bit damper than you bargained for, trade in your glittering heels for some fun and festive wellies.

Little Bidlake Farm

Boot bouquets

Forget about plain ’ol vases - display your floral arrangements in wellies to make them even more eye-catching.

Outdoor drinks reception

Even if you’re not having an open-air wedding, bring your drinks reception into the great outdoors so that your guests can catch some rays and enjoy the warm weather.

Queensberry Event Hire

Barrows of beer

Sure you could keep your beer in coolers and call it a day, but where’s the fun in that? We suggest making a garden-inspired drinks display using a vintage wheelbarrow, a few barrels and maybe some flowers for good measure.

Grange Barn

Seasonal snacks

Add some fresh seasonal snacks, like fruits and veggies paired with zesty dips, cheeses and charcuterie, to your buffet. You can also ask your caterer to create mains inspired by fresh, local ingredients to really kick your wedding eats up a notch.

Kalm Kitchen

Paper pom poms

Brighten up your space by hanging rows of whimsical paper pom poms from the ceiling of your marquee tent or venue.

Ladder table plan

Rustic decor is big in the spring, so why not incorporate some into your wedding? We love this shabby-chic ladder wedding table plan stacked with mini floral arrangements. Bonus: it’s a pretty easy DIY project, so you could save a couple of pounds by going this route.

Stargazey

Birdcage centrepieces

Pretty up your tablescapes by adding birdcages filled with vines, flowers and woodsy decor.

The Tinker Belles

Floral table numbers or names

Make your table numbers or names a bit artsier by surrounding them with gorgeous floral watercolour designs, like these ones.

Bewitching Stationery

Potted plants

Instead of sky-high, dramatic floral displays, add a few potted plants to your reception tables. These can double as table name/number holders and can even be given away as favours at the end of the night. 

Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square

Garden wedding cake

Amp up your wedding dessert table by asking your baker for a gorgeous floral wedding cake designs. You can have them painted onto the cake, crafted with icing or use real blooms that complement your other arrangements as toppers.

Lettice

Vintage bicycles

Add a few vintage bicycles to your decor to make it even more magical. They can hold favours or floral arrangements or be used to display signage. If you want a more eco-friendly wedding, you can even skip the classic getaway car and ride off into the sunset on a pair of bikes.

Agatha's Tea Party

Floral photobooth props

Yes, emoji signs and feather boas will always be awesome wedding photo props for your photo booth, but if you want to make yours fun, fresh, fierce and ready for spring add some faux flower crowns and bouquets to the mix. Don’t forget to use them in your backdrop, too!

Airstream Studio

Seed packet favours

Give your guests the gift of a full garden by offering packs of seeds as wedding favours. They’ll thank you when their flower boxes are filled with a rainbow of beautiful blooms.

Peace, Love & Marshmallows

Wedding car covered in blooms

Looking for a fun way to make your wedding car decorations a little more spring-y? Cover your ride with flowers, greenery and, if you really want to go that extra mile, a sign covered in moss.

Kushi Cars

Cleartop Marquee

The transparent wedding decor trend is huge right now. One of the coolest ways to work it into your spring design by choosing a clear top marquee tent as your venue. You’ll get to see the sun, the stars and be covered if Mother Nature decides to throw any rain your way.
