Spring Trends 2016 🌸
Known as the season of new beginnings, there is no better time to start your married life. Spring weddings are great for so many reasons. You’ll have beautiful flowers to work with, and you won’t need to worry about the drizzle of the colder months or the cost of a summer wedding. So, if you’re planning a gorgeous spring wedding, we’re here to give you the latest trends that’ll make your day absolutely perfect.
When it comes to spring weddings, the table decor at your wedding breakfast is an amazing way to add to the theme. Picnic weddings are a popular choice in the summer months, but they have recently become a go-to theme for the spring. Tie a little strip of picnic-inspired ribbon around your bouquets or on your wedding favours, and this will instantly add some picnic fun to your wedding day.
Light, pastel shades have always been used in spring weddings. However, this year we’ll be seeing pastel coloured lanterns hanging above the tables at the wedding breakfast. This is such a simple yet effective way to bring your room decor to the next level!
We are so obsessed with the watercolour wedding trend of 2016. Ask your cake supplier to create a watercolour inspired cake and show them images from Pinterest to give them an idea of what you’re looking for. Remember to choose colours that go well together; we recommend peach and gold!
Pretty Reception Drinks
When choosing your reception drinks, you should take into account your theme, your food, and the season! If you’re having a winter wedding, serving Pimms as a reception drink may not be appropriate. For a spring wedding, keep it light and pretty. Pink lemonade is a great non-alcoholic drink, whilst Mojitos would be an amazing cocktail to serve.
This spring, opt for neutral shades of pink and purple for your bridesmaids’ dresses. These colours will not only look absolutely beautiful, but will also match your bouquets of seasonal Spring flowers!
Easter Inspiration 🐰
We love this cute idea. This spring we’ll see subtle touches of Easter-inspired detail at weddings. Whether you go for mini-egg favours, or little nests as part of your centrepieces, have some fun with this springtime trend!
No spring wedding would be complete without adorable, fun stationery. In 2016 we’ll see pretty, hand-illustrated bunting on invitations, seating plans, and save the dates. We think this is a great way to immediately establish the theme of your big day.
Cute Confetti Cones
What better excuse for a wedding DIY project? Make your wedding even prettier with these gorgeous confetti cones! We love designs with a delicate floral pattern and lace details. Why not add a personalised message for your guests?
