Looking for unique ideas for spring weddings? Take a look at our stylish big day suggestions that’ll ensure you make the most of this stunning season.

Spring is a wonderful time to get married. It’s the season of new beginnings, the weather is often beautiful and there are stunning fresh flowers everywhere, making an incredible backdrop to your big day.

It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular wedding season and how you can be inspired by nature when planning your springtime wedding. But if you want your wedding to stand out amongst the crowd of other pastel-hued, blossom-strewn garden party celebrations then you’ll need to think outside the blush pink and garden roses box.

To help you, we’ve compiled an ultimate guide to spring weddings, including top tips and some of our favourite original spring wedding ideas, so your guests will be wowed from “I do” to the last dance. And, if your spring season wedding date falls on or around Easter, we’ve got some cute and stylish wedding ideas, as well as menu inspiration, to make the most of this special time of year.

Spring wedding flowers

Bike basket filled with flowers

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square 1

A spring wedding is always going to be full of blooms, but instead of displaying them in traditional vases throughout your venue why not have some fun with alternative vessels.

We love the idea of a vintage bike basket with flowers tumbling out. It can also do double duty as a sign to show guests where the ceremony is taking place.

Floral milk urns

Milk urns are another stunning and different choice for springtime floral arrangements. They look particularly chic in a cluster at the entrance to your venue.

Wooden crates

Attractive wooden crates are easy to come by at bric-a-brac or antique stores and make really beautiful rustic flower pots, especially at outdoor weddings.

Dried flower invitations

If you’re creative you might want to collect flowers the spring before you get married, dry them and then use them to decorate your invitations.

Lily of the valley bouquet

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (4) 5

Be inspired by the royals when it comes to your spring wedding bridal bouquet. A stunning flower that’s in season is lily of the valley – and it’s sure to give you a touch of Duchess of Cambridge glamour about you on your big day.

Floral dress

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (5) 6

Spring wedding flowers don’t just have to be on your reception tables and bouquets. Think about wearing them instead with a stunning floral wedding dress. You could go all out with a colourful print or keep it subtle with floral lace on a traditional white dress.

If you want to embrace the trend but wear something plain yourself, choose floral bridesmaid dresses instead. Another lovely idea for spring bridesmaid dresses is to have your best girls in an array of pretty pastels.

Living aisle

Walking down the aisle is one of the most magical moments of any wedding day, so invest in making your aisle look the part with plants and flowers in planters lining the sides to make it ‘living’.

Floral arch

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (6) 8

Floral arches at the entrance/ exit of your venue always look incredible, especially in those all-important confetti photos and as a backdrop for your wedding party pictures.

Go big with one flower

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (8) 9

At a spring wedding you could even just go all out with one type of statement flower and still make your wedding flowers look incredible – think a huge array of daffodils, multiple tulips (fringed tulips are our favourites) or an abundance of stunning baby’s breath.

Flower girls cart

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (9) 10

If you’re having children at your springtime wedding you’ll want to think about flower girls as they will certainly bring the cute factor to your ceremony. Dress them in pretty floral bridesmaid dresses and have them pull a flower-strewn cart (or sit in it if they’re tiny).

Floral fans

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (10) 11

Predicting hot weather for your spring or destination wedding? Have a box of floral fans at the entrance to your outdoor ceremony so guests can keep cool as you say “I do”.

Go all out with foliage

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (11) 12

A spring wedding doesn’t have to be all about colourful blooms. If you prefer something really fresh and chic, consider choosing an abundance of foliage and asking your florist to decorate with that instead. Tropical greens look amazing at destination weddings too.

Image credit: Pinterest

Floral swing

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (12) 13

Swings don’t just have to be for kids. Hang a pretty wooden and rope swing from a tree at your venue, decorate it with flowers and then it’ll be a stunning place for a first photo as a married couple.

Single blooms on each place setting

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (13) 14

Collect pretty wild flower blooms the day before your wedding and place them elegantly on each napkin for a laid-back spring wedding vibe.

Flower wall photo booth

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (15) 16

Photo booths are still insanely popular at weddings, but you could make yours stand out from the crowd by having a statement flower wall as your backdrop.

Herbs in your bridal bouquet

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (16) 17

Spring is a time of stunning smells thanks to all the fresh flowers. You could make your bridal bouquet even more enticing though with a mix of herbs, all of which have a special meaning too.

Flower crowns made out of fresh florals

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (17) 18

A spring wedding is a wonderful time for boho brides who love being connected to nature and embracing a more laid back wild look. Flower crowns are a brilliant way to reflect the season in your big day look.

Artificial blossom trees

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (18) 19

If you’re very lucky your spring wedding date will fall over the few weeks when blossom trees are in full bloom. If not, you can hire really pretty artificial blossom trees instead and use them in and around your venue for seasonal wow factor.

Flower seeds as wedding favours

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (19) 20

Looking for spring wedding ideas for your favours? We love the idea of gifting your guests little packets of wild flower seeds that they can plant at home and that will encourage lots of bees to their gardens.

Easter wedding ideas

Petting farm

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (20) 21

Spring wedding season often includes Easter so it can be a nice idea to give a nod to this at your wedding even if you’re not religious. Easter is associated with cute fluffy little animals so you could provide some entertainment during the reception drinks in the form of a petting zoo.

Get married outdoors

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (21) 22

If Easter falls nearer summer than winter, you might want to consider an outdoor ceremony. There are some venues in the UK with amazing outdoor spaces, but it’s important with unpredictable spring weather to always have Plan B in case of those pesky April showers.

Outdoor photos look magical at an easter wedding too so be sure to ask your photographer to capture some. This venue is Woodhall Manor in Suffolk.

Dyed eggs

Easter wedding ideas don’t get much chicer than these pretty dyed eggs.

Mini eggs in little baskets

Easter egg hunt

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (24) 25

Looking for entertainment ideas for your spring wedding? We love the idea of hosting an Easter egg hunt around the grounds of your wedding venue.

Bunny-shaped decor

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (25) 26

Give the Easter bunny a starring role in your big day by adopting a cute bunny motif. Think napkins folded in the shape of bunny ears, rabbit-shaped place names with flower tails, or Peter Rabbit decor.

Spring wedding food

Seasonal menus

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (26) 27

Choosing a spring theme menu is not only a good idea for wowing your guests with delicious fresh food but will also reduce your food miles so is a good eco-friendly option. Spring ingredients for your wedding feast include asparagus, broad beans, peas, radishes, green beans, spring onions, leeks, courgettes, lamb, pork, apples, lemons, and oranges amongst others.

Ice cubes with edible flowers

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (27) 28

A really quick and easy way to do something unique with spring wedding flowers is to use them inside the ice cubes of your drinks. All you need to do is collect edible blooms and freeze them inside cube trays.

Image credit: Pinterest

Signature cocktail

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (28) 29

Signature spring cocktails could include elderflower coolers, rhubarb gin, pink lady cocktails, cherry blossom cocktails, and honey rose margaritas. If you’re having an easter wedding, we love the idea of having white rabbit cocktails, mini egg martinis and simple cake sours on the menu.

Image credit: Pinterest

Wheelbarrows full of drinks

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (29) 30

Spring is a time where lots of people spend a lot of time in their gardens and if you are keen gardeners it can be fun to include a nod to this by serving beer or cans of drinks in a wheelbarrow full of ice.

Image credit: Pinterest

Edible petals

Ask your caterer to make your food even prettier and appropriate for the season with edible petal decorations.

Picnic style dining with gingham cloths

Spring weather means its a perfect time for picnics, so if you don’t want a formal three course dinner consider serving sharing food from pretty picnic baskets displayed on gingham cloths.

Sweet buffet

A sweet cart or table with pretty glass bon bon-filled vases can create a fun vibe at a spring wedding and make guests nostalgic for their childhood.

Fruity water to hydrate guests

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (33) 34

Spring weather can be really warm so keep guests hydrated in style with massive glass pitchers or dispensers full of fruity water. Cucumber, lemon and organ slices look enticing and cool.

Mobile bar or street food stalls

Encourage your guests to spend time outside at your wedding venue by hiring street food stalls or a mobile bar in a horse box or airstream at the evening reception.

Spring wedding colour palettes

Pops of pink

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (35) 36

It won’t be a surprise to hear that the colour pink works extremely well at a spring wedding. From barely there dusky pinks to bright hits of fuchsia, different shades of pink that reflect cherry blossom and spring flowers will look incredible.

Pastel hues

Pastel colours like baby blues, soft pinks, sage green, lemon yellow and lilac really sum up the season and look lovely surrounded by all the new shoots and leaves in nature.

Fruit inspired colours

Spring is a time when trees start to produce fruit, so a clever colour palette at a wedding could reflect this. Think peach hues, lemon, watermelon and berries.

Jewel tones

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (38) 39

Rich jewel tones will look incredible in the sun especially if you pair the deep greens, sumptuous purples, rich reds and pinks and ochre yellow with metallic details or a bit of bling.

All-white

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (39) 40

With so much fresh green around as a backdrop at this time of year, a pared-back colour palette of just white can look exquisite at a spring wedding.

Spring Wedding Decor Ideas

Floral crockery

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (40) 41

To bring a really chic and unique floral look to your tables why not hire some pretty crockery with a floral design on it, or if you’re having a small wedding you could find mismatched flowery crockery in charity shops and let guests take a piece home each as a favour.

Image credit: Sandra Aberg Photography

Decorate with fruit

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (41) 42

Celebrate spring and the start of the trees producing fruit but decorating with it. An abundant table runner made up of citrus fruits looks particularly good at destination weddings, or you could combine your dessert with decor by providing stunning platters of fruit on each table.

Image credit: Pinterest

Basket of flip flops or wellington boots

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (42) 43

Garden party wedding venue

Trellis seating plan

Duck herding

Fairground games

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (60) 59

Worried your guests will get bored between the main moments at your spring wedding. Hire some fairground rides if the outside space at your venue allows. Hopefully they won’t all be having too much fun on the dodgems to head to the dance floor to watch the first dance.

Welly wanging

Chic Ideas For Your Perfect Spring Wedding Blog image square (59) 60

A cheap and easy, but absolutely hilarious, game is welly wanging. It’s probably not ideal if you’re hosting a really glamorous black tie wedding, but at a more relaxed affair in the country you could divide guests into teams and watch them get stuck into this classic country pursuit.

Image credit: Pinterest

We hope this list has inspired you and you’re well on your way to planning the perfect spring wedding!
