Getting married in the spring? Spring is rejuvenation, blooming, and the renewal of nature. Who wouldn’t want to get married in such a blossoming environment? You want spring to be represented in your wedding, so you must choose colors.
Pastel colors are extremely common in spring weddings, with the onset of the Easter holiday. Pastel colors include blues, purples, yellows, oranges, pinks, and greens. Using two of these colors will provide a pulled together look as well as keeping it minimal. Combinations may include pink and orange, blue and purple, yellow and green, or green and blue. Any combination you choose can work because pastels are low-key and rarely clash.
Many times, multicolored weddings take place in the spring because lighter colors do not clash as heavily as bolder colors. Generally, orange and red clash but lighter versions of these – orange and pink – work together. However, some find these colors to be overly feminine so keep this in mind and consider your spouse’s thoughts.
Green is becoming more and more popular in weddings, especially because of St. Patrick’s Day. A light green used with white represents the growth and peace of nature and looks absolutely beautiful. However if you are having an outdoor wedding, keep in mind that you will be standing against many shades of green and you may blend in or clash with the background. Green is a great color to use for wedding favors in spring because Irish wedding favors are often given out this time of year.
When choosing colors for a spring wedding dress, white is not always used. Since pastels are low-key, you may find a peach, yellow, or light orange dress to suit you better. Gardenias fashioned in your hair will look stunning as they will contrast nicely against a light background. Also, a crown of daisies is a popular look for an outdoor wedding.
Your bridesmaids’ gowns should not be the same color as your dress. For example if you are wearing a white dress with peach lacing and highlights, your bridesmaid would need to wear peach dresses with white sashes or other white accents so as not to distract from the bride.
