Spring is a really lovely time of the year to get married. A time of new life, new colours and blooming beautiful flowers. Spring is the perfect representation of the start of a new life together as you become man and wife.
Whether you are looking for whimsy, floral invitations or understated patterned invitations, drawing ideas from spring’s beauty, as the basis of your wedding theme is the perfect place to start.
Spring flowers are timeless and romantic and with the focus on muted and delicate colours, rather than bold they can create the perfect feel for your spring wedding.

If bold floral patterns aren’t your bag then spring is the ideal season for understated patterns, from polka dots and muted stripes, to graphic shapes in perfect pastel palettes. Graphic shapes and patterns have never been so popular. Perfect for those looking for a more modern approach to their spring wedding. Shying away from more fussy florals, the geometric trend is easy to incorporate into wedding styling with angular vases, decor and stationery.

If you like flowers, but don’t love the idea of them dominating your wedding invitations try something in between. Woodland-themed weddings are a new trend on the scene in 2016. A subtle touch of floral with wood and wildlife can be used to give a real whimsical and enchanted feel to your big day.
Above, ‘Enchanted Woods’ invitation. This pretty colour combo is set to be very popular this year and the use of wood in weddings and invitation design is going to be a big trend.

From saturated to soft, watercolours are continuing to have their moment in weddings right now. Proving popular in 2015, watercolours aren’t going anywhere and are erfect for a spring wedding.
As a shade of orange, ‘Peach Echo’ is another trending wedding colour for 2016. Mixed with pink it really adds a touch of romance.

If you are getting married in the spring but aren’t keen on a pale colour scheme then try something with a little more pop of colour. Rustic trends are hugely popular in weddings, and it really doesn’t matter what time of the year you are getting married for it to work. With the use of rustic textures such as hessian fabrics, kraft paper and twine string mixed with colour of your choice it can create a perfect blend for a country/barn spring wedding with a more relaxed and home-made feel.

If you are going floral with your invites then pick a flower that is in bloom in spring. Hydrangeas are a beautiful choice and can really make a statement when used at a wedding.

Pantones colour of the year is the perfect colour palette for 2016.
Botanical weddings are here to stay. Flowers are taking a back seat in 2016 with the focus on gorgeous greenery. Succulents and aromatic herbs like rosemary and mint are playing a big part in this popular wedding trend. If girly shades of pink and peach aren’t for you then keep it simple. Think rustic, leafy bouquets or green table garlands keeping the colour palette very neutral. Omit flowers altogether for a beautifully understated spring wedding theme.
