If you are considering a spring wedding and are looking for some inspiration, we’ve curated some ideas to help you plan your day. From personalised wedding favours to bouquets of spring flowers, here are some of the top trends for spring weddings this year.

Spring Colours

As the seasons change, winter unravels its frost-laced cloak to give way to leafy verdure and beautiful blossoms in springtime. Covering the countryside and coast with colour, it transforms the scenery and weaves a spectacular natural tapestry that simply takes the breath away. Taking inspiration from nature’s palette, some of the top spring wedding ideas this year include pastels and neutral shades like blush pink, soft sage and ivory. Exuding warmth, yellows, peach and burnt oranges are also popular this year. Add colour-matched accessories to tie outfits together and flourish floral accents for a touch of springtime wonder and a seasonal wedding of dreams.

Unique Wedding Favours

The tradition of wedding favours dates back hundreds of years in the UK and symbolises the sharing of luck and love. For thoughtful spring wedding ideas with a twist, why not consider seasonally themed gifts for your wedding? In the spirit of springtime, wedding favours such as wildflower seed packets, mini succulents and pressed flowers can offer a really creative touch and an eco-friendly approach. Handmade candles scented with springtime blooms can also be a fun yet tasteful addition, allowing guests to cherish their gift long after the wedding is over and enjoy soothing springtime fragrances at home.

Beautiful Backdrops

One of the best things about spring is the beautiful arrival of botanical blooms that burst into life everywhere from gardens to hedgerows to coastal clifftops. Perfect if you are hoping to spend lots of time outside during your spring wedding and plan treasured photographs under open skies, beautiful backdrops can make all the difference. Helping you to plan the best spring wedding ideas this year, our stunning grounds at The Horn of Plenty are ensconced in gorgeous Devonshire countryside and boast far-reaching views over the Tamar Valley. Walk down the flight of lavender-bordered steps and make the most of the idyllic setting to enjoy precious moments with your beau and your guests.

Seasonal Wedding Flowers

One of our favourite spring wedding ideas is the use of seasonal wedding flowers. From bouquets to boutonnieres, and from corsages to floral arches, there are all sorts of ways that native, seasonal flowers can be used to add colour and style to your wedding day. Some of the most well-known seasonal flowers in the UK include daffodils, snowdrops, tulips, bluebells, primroses and more. For extra decoration, you can also place vases of fresh flowers on dining tables and hang floral installations from the ceiling.

Themed Wedding Songs

To inject personal taste into your wedding ceremony and evening reception, why not consider hiring live entertainment? One of the best spring wedding ideas that can be used year-round, this musical encore allows you to add a custom soundtrack to your day. Choose a live band for electric beats or classic melodies, a solo musician for acoustic tunes, or a DJ for rhythm and dance. Whether you’re turning to the seasons to provide springtime inspiration for your setlist or are filling the airways with your favourite songs, themed wedding songs are the perfect touch.

Curated Cuisine

What better way to celebrate true love on your wedding day than with a menu that wins the heart? For seasonal authenticity, choose a wedding menu filled with locally-sourced produce and delicious flavours, from meats to greens and more. Offering an even more unique approach, you can also consider creative spring wedding ideas in the beverage department and come up with a signature cocktail or two to serve behind the bar. Concoct a mouth-watering cocktail infused with spring flavours, from botanical-infused gins to fruity mocktails.
