Spring… one of the prettiest and most popular times of the year to get wed. From vintage vibes to playful peach, and just about everything in between, there are plenty of fab ways to style your spring wedding day…

Pretty in peach

Peach is in for 2016 and if you love all things bright and girly, there’s no better way to style your day. Using the colour as the basis for your styling and décor, all you’ll need to do is throw in a creative and playful touch.

When it comes to the wedding essentials – like your bouquet, bridesmaid gowns and wedding cake, make the most of your big day colour. You can always add a personal touch with your favourite flower choices and cake finish – from ruffles to royal icing.

It’s during your reception that your spring wedding theme will really come to life. Think colour-themed cocktails, bright blooms adorning your tables, and fun peach typography, hung from the back of your chairs.

Fun features like pom poms and paper lanterns, hung from above, work well in your reception space. For those of you looking for something ultra-feminine, why not get your florist to hang vibrant peach blooms from the ceiling instead?

Another must-have feature is the bold and bright backdrop. Create with your favourite shades of peach ribbon. Later on in the evening, once your guests have exhausting the photo booth-style opportunities, you could also use this space as a backdrop for your dessert table. Two uses in one!

Blissful blue

For an elegant yet relaxed wedding day, style your venue with soft blue romantic touches. Think fabric and floral arches, whimsical paper lanterns and crisp white flowers all adorning your perfect venue.

Your bridesmaids can wear blue, while you may also choose to feature this dreamy colour scheme in your own big day attire. To do this, you could opt for a touch of blue on your dress, embrace beautiful blue heels, or add the finishing touch to your bouquet with a blue ribbon.

Watercolour and calligraphy could also feature in your day – as they too give off those dreamy overtones. You could incorporate these into features such as your wedding cake and stationery.

Vintage furniture also oozes class and elegance. It serves as a useful prop for wedding photographs and works well in countryside and barn venues.

Garden party

With the temperatures finally starting to warm up, we all want to step outside into the garden and embrace the changing landscape. A garden party styled day allows you to do this, taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings and natural colour palette.

Crisp green and white florals and foliage will be key to styling your day. Think floral chair garlands, minimalist, chic bouquets and extra special floral detail enhancing the features of your wedding venue.

Of course, the floral touches don’t stop there. Pretty foliage finishes off your delicate buttercream iced wedding cake, while delicate blooms are entwined in your hair.

With nature being key to the seasonal garden, you’ll also want to incorporate some springtime birds. Think birdcages filled with delicate white flowers and pretty paper crane details for a playful, yet charming, look.

Once you’ve got the main elements in place, you can tailor your wedding style to your personality. You may like to add a vintage touch with complementary attire, or incorporate more luxe fabrics and features for something more high-end and extravagant. A wooden photo frame polaroid spot would also work for modern weddings with a more playful touch.

Vintage romance

Lilac and greys come together to create the 2016 vintage colour palette. Like all the styles covered in today’s blog, it’s easy to incorporate the colours into all your wedding elements.

With any vintage styled wedding day, props are key. Some of our favourites include the rustic ladder, which can be painted and styled with flowers to complement your day, and vintage furniture. The birdcage is another popular addition to this springtime styled affair. Fill with purple blooms and a pillar candle for the ultimate vintage look.

Great flowers also enhance the vintage wedding and look beautiful in lilac. While pretty roses work, the wild bouquet, combining shades of purple, pinks and greys is our personal favourite.

As the vintage trend allows you to embrace lots of pretty and delicate touches, you can get really creative with your cake. You might even choose for it to be the focal point of your reception room. Opt for floral details, or the popular birdcage design, and don’t forget to inject a bit of lilac. Delicate cupcakes will go down a treat too!

Glassware and old vintage silverware are great additions to your tables. Fill with wedding flowers to match your bouquet. A touch of calligraphy, featured on your wedding table stationery, also creates a feel of vintage elegance.
