Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons to hold a wedding in. Fresh blooms, blue skies, and sunshine make it the best season for romance and celebration. Read on for our recommendations on how to dress to impress for a wedding in spring.
Spring brings beautiful weather and an air of romance to any wedding, and it’s fun to reflect the romance and beauty of the season in your bridal look. A tea-length dress is a popular dress style for the season, a fun and playful take on the traditional, full-length bridal gown. Full skirts are also a winning choice for the season. Incorporating lace and embroidery into your wedding dress, inspired by the flowers and foliage of the season, is another lovely way to celebrate the spring.
For your spring time bridal accessories, you may like to consider how you can bring in the beautiful fresh flowers of the season. We love the idea of weaving daisies through a relaxed plait or sophisticated up-do. A floral crown, embellished with colourful flowers, is another wonderful choice for any spring bride.
For your bridesmaids, floral prints and pastel shades will compliment a springtime wedding beautifully. In addition, corsages, floral crowns, and single flowers (tucked behind the ear), are all eye-catching springtime accessory choices.
As a groom, there are many fun ways to play around with your look for the springtime; a lighter shade of suit is a nice way to compliment the relaxed appeal of spring. Suits in a cool grey, brown, or beige can look incredible against a pastel colour scheme. You can also bring in the shades of spring, by sporting a tie in a springtime shade. As Amy, blogger at @CVBrides, explains “choosing a muted neutral for the suits, allows the more classical groom to introduce some Spring colour in his tie and pocket chief for a timeless and elegant look”.
Springtime wedding guests
Spring gives you a gorgeous colour palette to play with. An array of striking brights and soft pastels reflect the scenic beauty of the season and are pretty choices for any wedding day outfit. The playful and delicate vibe of spring is well suited to ladylike fabrics, such as lace and chiffon. Picking a dress or skirt in a floral print is also another classic choice for this colourful season.
For gentlemen, spring is a fairly relaxed season in which men are allowed to toy with relaxed shirts and smart trousers (as oppose to donning a suit!). Bringing a nice pop of colour into your wedding day outfit is easily achievable with some colourful braces or a bold bow tie.
An ideal season for a wedding
Spring is the time for pretty pastels, florals, and endearingly light fabrics. With little consideration needing to be made on how to best keep yourself cool, dry, or warm during the ceremony and celebrations, spring is one of the best wedding seasons to dress for.
