Spring is a lovely season for a wedding. Why not take full advantage of the charm and beauty that the season has to offer by using the colors of spring as inspiration for your wedding design? Let this guide help you find the perfect color palette for your spring wedding.
Yellow is a wonderful choice for a spring wedding. Think about the yellow of daffodils, tulips, and crocus peeking from the earth after the chill of winter has finally passed. Imagine the yellow glow of the sun on a warm early spring afternoon. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to capture those feelings for your wedding?
Spring yellow is soft and varied; you can use a combination of a few shades ranging from buttercup to lemon to daffodil in everything from flowers to bridesmaid dresses to the wedding cake. Yellow also pairs beautifully with white for a wedding. Think how fresh that color combination looks in daisies, and you will see what I mean.
If you have selected yellow as your signature wedding color, you have the option of selecting a secondary accent color (perhaps in addition to white). Yellow and purple look terrific together in floral displays, so shades of purple could be a nice accent hue. Spring green looks fresh and cheerful with yellow, perfect for an informal afternoon wedding.
Yellow bridesmaid dresses can be lovely and feminine as long as you stick with a soft shade that is flattering on most skin tones. The simple elegance of pearl bridesmaid jewelry is perfect with a yellow dress.
Another wonderful spring wedding color is robin’s egg blue. The pale blue egg of one of spring’s first birds is one of the most feminine shades of blue. The delicate hue is absolutely beautiful for wedding details like bridesmaid dresses, table linens, and even wedding invitations.
As a bonus, robin’s egg blue is not so overly girly that your groom will be likely to object. It makes a nice color for tying up boutonniere stems or custom ties for the men in the wedding. Pale blue is equally great for wedding jewelry; so pretty for the bridesmaid jewelry, and of course, for the bride, blue jewelry makes a great “something blue”.
Light green is always a pretty spring wedding color. The fun part about that particular color is that it can be used to create very different wedding themes. For instance, a light green paired with pink is classic and preppy. Another idea is to combine light green with espresso brown for a look that is both springy and sophisticated at the same time.
The green and brown combo looks incredible when used to create bold patterns like modern chic damask or striped designs. Light green is also pretty in combination with a watery lilac color for a very feminine wedding theme.
The most important thing to keep in mind when selecting a color palette for a spring wedding is that it should capture the joyful spirit of both the season and the occasion. With that in mind, you are sure to find a cheerful spring wedding color that suits your taste perfectly.
