If you’re tying the knot in spring, you can have lots of fun with an Easter wedding theme. Whether you just plan to doff your hat to this annual moveable feast, or go full Easter for your celebrations, here are a few ideas you might like.
Dressing for Easter
Put a spring in your step with a playful prom or tea length dress. A floral lace overlay adds the romance of springtime to your outfit, while lace sleeves or an illusion neckline will help you feel a little more insulated against any cooler spring weather.
Pastel pinks, greens, yellows, blues and purples are classic Easter wedding colours. And mismatched bridesmaids dresses are a great way to include a range of pastel hues. Soft, fresh shades echo newly emerging spring flowers and festive candy treats.

Grooms and ushers can get in on the pastel action too. A pastel suit, in blue for example, can look really dapper. But, if your man is the conservative type, he could team a trad dark suit with pops of pastel accessories.

Easter wedding decorations
Eggs are the main ingredient in any Easter celebration. And, DIY egg decorations are cheap as chips to make. Change up the classic painted egg with cool designer motifs or decoupage. Or create an interesting placecard holder. For quirky personalised favours, a fortune cookie-style message in an egg makes for a cracking surprise.
Tulips are a great choice for Easter wedding flowers. They come in every colour under the sun and all sorts of petal shapes – even frilly ones. An Easter bird’s nest bursting with blooms makes a fun centrepiece. And loosely tied, garden style bouquets are effortlessly stylish.

It just wouldn’t be Easter without an Easter bunny. Although the real things are super cute, they probably wouldn’t be completely okay with attending a wedding reception. But there are lots of rabbit decorations that are almost as good for you to choose form instead.

Simnel cake is an Easter favourite. This spicy fruitcake has lumps of marzipan stirred into the mixture. It’s then topped with another layer of marzipan and dressed with marzipan balls.
Hot cross buns are another Easter tradition you could weave into your big day. If you don’t fancy usual bread kind, you could make hot cross cakes instead.
When it comes to ideas for favours, Easter is a gift. Sweets or choccies in pretty wrappers will bring smiles to faces and are ever so easy to put together.
