Spring lasts from March until May, affording you three months of suitably floral wedding celebrations. Go bright with your bouquets and arrangements and you will be able to evoke a real sense of spring and beauty, all whilst making use of nature.
Opt for a theme of renewal and growth and you can add floral touches to your dress and to your place settings. Think foraged berries, sticks, wild flowers and leaves. You can even garnish your meal with edible flowers!
For brides who want to bring spring into their outfit, the easiest way is to wear a flower crown that matches your colour scheme. Go rustic with the groomswear; tweed, plaid and tartan are perfect for spring and allow you to incorporate the colours from your flowers into the gents’ attire via pocket squares or shirt selections.
From Décor to Dining
Moving away from décor, afternoon tea is a great way to bring guests together after the ceremony or to serve as some respite for the family before the evening celebrations commence. Words to remember include vintage, rustic, floral, elegant and nature – all these themes work in spring so don’t’ forget to let nature take centre stage in your photographs and decorations.
Falling across the months of June, July and August summer is the season for bright colours, warm climates and extravagance. The Pantone colour of the year for 2018 is ultra violet – and what better way to incorporate this into your wedding than by delicate touches of the shade? Put ultra violet into your flowers, ribbons, signage, sashes and in your cake to be subtly on-trend.
Designer bridal collections this year are also incorporating black accents which, while initially a shocking choice, will certainly look striking alongside copper elements. Whimsical 3D florals can add a touch of drama to otherwise simple and minimal gowns and veils, as well as place settings.
Trends to try
Another surprising but futuristic trend is see-through and transparent trinkets and décor. From picture frames containing messages, flowers or favours to Perspex seating plans or glass detailing, following this trend can be as simple or extravagant as you wish. Thinking of your wedding environment, outdoor cocktails and an ice cream stand are always a great choice to entertain your guests. As with spring, a wildflower bouquet is the perfect finishing touch for a bride, and your summer wedding will hand out if your bridesmaids are seen handing out lavender or dried flowers for guests to use as confetti.
