Spring is by far the most romantic season of the year, and what better a time to tie the knot than when the flowers are at full bloom and the gentle sun is shining in abundance. Spring holds a lot of promise, which is why we think it is the perfect season to get married. Here are 7 magical ideas for a fairytale wedding this spring.
Go Flower Crazy
Since spring is when all the beautiful flowers bloom, a flower studded wedding a guaranteed must have. Flowers on your hair, flowers on your wedding cake, flowers on aisles and flowers on your tables are the perfect way of capturing the essence and magic of spring on your special day. If you are at a loss as to what kind of flowers to use, work alongside a florist as they will help you make the best decision on which blooms to pick for the big day.
Hire a Marquee
Having an indoor spring wedding would be an awful shame when the weather outside is, in our opinion, absolutely perfect for an outdoor celebration. If you have dreamt of a garden wedding party all your life, spring is the time to make your dreams come true. Hiring a marquee to shelter your guests throughout the event is the perfect idea for your outdoor fairytale.
Fruit Stand Appetisers
Fresh fruit is an absolute treat in spring and setting up an adorable farmer’s market style fruit stand is a nifty idea for a spring wedding. You can use inexpensive crates from thrift stores and make chalkboard signs for each fruit, letting your guests know that they can eat some right there or take a few home.
Fun Lawn Games for All
Having fun lawn games that all can take part in and enjoy at your reception is a great way to get everyone involved in the spring time festivities. Get creative with the games you offer; from giant Jenga, to lawn checkers, croquet, ladder golf, ring toss and even lawn bowling – pick the games that you and your fiancé enjoy and you’ll be all set!
Parasols for the Bridesmaids
Nothing screams magical more than a bevy of beautiful women carrying parasols at your wedding. Parasols are inexpensive and make for fantastic photos. They can also provide some shade for your lovely bridesmaids and is a fantastic souvenir for them to bring home. You can even provide parasols for the young ones at the wedding if you are feeling generous!
Ditch the Traditional Wedding Cake
Gone are the days where people look forward to stodgy, heavy wedding fruit cake covered in thick marzipan and icing. Celebrate spring with a funky Ombre wedding cake in pastel shades, and pick light flavours such as Vanilla, Lemon or even Lavender for your wedding centrepiece. Not only will an Ombre Buttercream cake look good – it will taste it as well!
Seed Packet Door Gifts
Everyone loves a cute gift to bring home from a wedding, and what better gift to give out than seed packets this spring. People can bring them home and plant them in their garden this is a perfect way to make sure everyone remembers your magical fairytale wedding for years to come.
With these 7 magical ideas in mind, we are sure that you will have the fairytale wedding that you have been dreaming about since you were little.
