Spring Wedding Trends

Can you feel it?! The flowers are blooming, the weather is warming, and love is in the air! With 2024 upon us, it’s time to dive into the freshest trends shaping the spring weddings this season, and hopefully inspire you soon to be brides & grooms for your big day!

Bold Colors Meet Soft Pastels

While spring always brings beautiful pastels, 2024 is about embracing vibrancy as well. Think pops of coral, sunny yellows, and rich blues alongside classic blush, lavender, and sage green. This mix of soft and bold creates a dynamic and playful palette for everything from florals to bridesmaid dresses.

Fun ways to incorporate soft pastels into your Spring Wedding

Ombré is a beautiful way to play with multiple pastel shades. Ideas include: Ombré wedding cakes, bridesmaid dresses or floral arches and decor.

Rustic Touches: Contrast the softness of pastels with rustic textures for a unique look using wooden crates, table runners and chalkboard signs with pastel calligraphy.

Unexpected Pops: Inject playful surprises with pastels: His & Hers cocktails in soft hues (think a lavender lemonade or a peach Bellini) Pastel macarons or other desserts on the treat table and confetti in soft pastel shades

Garden Party Wedding

Move over, formal ballroom! Couples are opting for enchanting outdoor settings and channeling a whimsical garden party atmosphere. Think lush greenery, twinkly lights, and flowing, unstructured floral arrangements. Embrace the natural beauty of spring! Obviously if you are based in the UK like us, you will likely need a wet weather plan and some form of shelter, but with some planning, could be just perfect.

Fun ways to plan for a spring garden wedding in the UK

Embrace the English Countryside

  • Venue: Seek out stunning gardens attached to manor houses, historic estates, or botanical gardens. The established landscaping provides a breathtaking backdrop.
  • Decor: Opt for floral prints on table linens, vintage china for a charming tea party vibe, and delicate string lights for a magical evening glow.
  • Activities: If space allows, set up classic lawn games like croquet or giant Jenga for a touch of whimsy.

Thanks to shows like Bridgerton, the delicate elegance of the Regency era is influencing wedding fashion and decor. This means empire waistlines, lace details, and a focus on romantic, ethereal aesthetics. For a touch of vintage charm, this trend is a dream come true.

Top tips on capturing the romantic essence of Bridgerton for your wedding

  • Color Palette: Embrace regency blue, soft pastels (think blush, lavender, ivory), and touches of metallic gold for a luxurious feel.
  • Florals: Wisteria is a Bridgerton staple! Think overflowing arrangements, floral arches, and wisteria draped over structures. Roses, peonies, and hydrangeas also fit the aesthetic.
  • Stationery & Decor: Choose delicate calligraphy or embossed invitations. Incorporate vintage-inspired elements like ornate candelabras, velvet accents, and antique china.

Interactive Experiences & Art

Couples want their weddings to be a celebration and an experience for their guests. Interactive elements are huge – live artists capturing the day, creative food stations (think ice cream bikes or personalised gelato), or even a build-your-own-bouquet bar for a fun floral touch.

Cool & creative wedding supplier ideas for your wedding day

Hire a wedding painter or illustrator. Imagine having a painting of your wedding ceremony or reception up above the fireplace to forever remind you of your big day! Or have an artist create live drawings of your guests as a wedding favour.

Hire fun catering. Don’t want to stick the standard chicken dinner for your wedding breakfast?

Individuality tumps any trend

The biggest trend in 2024? Individuality! Forget rigid rules and embrace what reflects your unique love story. From bold color schemes to personalised touches, spring weddings are about expressing yourselves and creating a day that’s undeniably yours.
