Create an ultrafeminine spring color palette with big pink blooms and bright purple accents. To create an intimate space, we like to use low arrangements of peonies, poppies, and zinnias.
A classic combination, a fresh pairing of coral and mint is perfect for sunny afternoon receptions. To achieve the perfect table, we used a mix of vintage and new dishes.
A clean color palette of whites evokes a crisp formal feeling. Perfect for black tie weddings, shades of white on the table create an elegant atmosphere.
Pink, green, and blue combine to create a bright and breezy color scheme. This arrangement is a great way to stretch purchased flowers. Simply place one stem in each glass bottle and cluster together.
Using a light color palette for a spring wedding can be very traditional; aqua or light blue is a refreshingly cheery choice when paired with classic white. Here, we made the wedding cake stand out with aqua-color fondant and a big white ribbon tied into a bow. Add to the spring wedding color scheme with aqua-tinted glass to hold votive candles and white plates with pretty aqua designs.
Pair a pretty lavender hue with dark green for a striking spring wedding color combo. Pastels are common colors for spring weddings, and you can incorporate a touch of this color combo on your wedding cake by adorning your cake with live flowers.
Play with contrasting colors like pink and orange. These bold brights work especially well in dramatic floral arrangements like these hanging spheres.
This spring-inspired color scheme translates beautifully from nature. Extend the look with bold purple bridesmaid dresses and flowers in light shades of green.
You can use pastels in your spring wedding while staying away from pink with this peach-and-yellow color combo. Here, a bridesmaid holds a simple bouquet of pale yellow hydrangea, which contrasts nicely with her peach-color dress.
Nothing says spring quite like fresh tulips. Pale pink tulips and peonies set on a table of white linens create a romantic wedding tablescape.
Spring isn't just about brights. For a bold play on the season's hues, pair purple and pink with a pop of blue. To get the look in a bouquet, mix light purple ageratum and pincushion flowers with pink roses and calla lilies, adding pretty blue hydrangea at the bottom.
