With beautiful weather warming up and nature beginning to bloom in the spring, it’s no surprise that this wonderful time of year is one of the most popular seasons couples choose for hosting their wedding. If you’re an aspiring or practicing planner and want some fun seasonal inspiration for planning a fabulous springtime reception, here are 4 adorable ideas to get started with:
- Floral Choices- For a classically stunning springtime wedding, your floral design choices are crucial. This season our picks include tulips, daisies, peonies, lilacs, daffodils and forget-me-nots.
- Color Scheme- For a soft, natural-looking springtime theme, we prefer pastel choices this time of year. Our favorite picks for 2017? Cream, lilac, mauve and mint.
- Party Favors- Last week we shared a list of 7 practical wedding favor ideas – fun treats to share with your wedding and event guests in order to avoid the typical routine (where the guests never actually use the party favors and they wind up in the trash). For a spring theme, we recommend giving out succulents. They add nice greenery to the table on which they’re displayed and continue the theme of nature, outdoorsy-ness and growth throughout the event.
- The Little Things- Every good wedding or event planner knows that the key to hosting a memorable event is all in the details. To continue along the vein of a festive springy wedding vibe, have your guests toss lavender instead of rice at the couple as they exit the ceremony.
