Spring is a popular time of year to get married. It's a time of renewal and growth, perfect to symbolise the beginning of a marriage and life together as a couple. There are several wonderful themes a couple can use to make their wedding reception stunning and tie all the elements together. These spring wedding ideas will make planning a cinch and even spark new or personalised ideas for a bride-to-be.
Spring is all about new life and fresh starts, so choose a garden theme for your wedding. Use potted plants or topiaries as centrepieces. Wrap a vine around the silverware as a napkin ring. Give guests a packet of seeds or a pair of gloves as a favour.
Butterflies are abundant in the spring. Have fondant butterflies down the tiers of your wedding cake. Add silk, mesh and wire to create butterflies yourself. Hang these from any doorways or alcoves possible. Choose a few different colours for the butterflies to coordinate with your wedding colours.
Make your wedding a floral wonderland. Place edible flowers such as roses, pansies and nasturtiums on the cake. Place a single flower in a bud vase in front of each seat. Then, complement the single stems with a large floral centrepiece, which includes the same flower as in the single stem bud vases. Sunflowers are a good sturdy spring flower you might consider. Add silk flower petals to the outer layer of the bridesmaid and flower girl dresses.
Tea Party Theme
For a small intimate affair, have a tea party. Lay out silk tablecloths, napkins and china. Use old teapots filled with daisies as centrepieces, and serve traditional tea party food such as finger sandwiches, salads and bite-sized desserts. Ask guests to wear a hat and gloves to continue the tea party theme.
If you're planning a wedding during Easter week, you may want to go with an Easter theme. Give guests Easter eggs filled with candy or a special fortune like a fortune cookie. Use Easter egg baskets as centrepieces filled with colourful plastic Easter grass and flowers. Have bunnies hop around the venue to create a festive environment.
