Spring is in the air! A great way to infuse your wedding with a spring feeling is to use the signature colors of the season for your decorations, attire, bridesmaid jewelry, and other accessories. Using these ideas, you can add spring color to your wedding and ensure that it will be a bright and lively event.
The classic spring hues are hard to resist, even if you are not a pastel person: pale pink, lilac, spring green, soft yellow, and bably blue. They evoke the changing of the seasons, the new growth of flowers, and a soft balmy breeze in the air – in other words, spring! These lovely colors are almost irresistible for a spring bride. Keep in mind that you can use just a few subtle touches here and there, such as pink bridesmaid jewelry with charcoal gray dresses, or go all out with an abundance of Easter hues throughout your celebration.
For those brides who generally prefer less exuberant colors, try combining just one of the spring hues with a neutral or deep color. Try a spring green sash on a mocha bridesmaid dress andadd clear crystal bridesmaid jewelry to complete this spring look? Try pink striped ties in lieu of blue ties with navy suits to get a fresh spring look. For champagne bridesmaid dresses, try lilac bouquets instead of white flowers. When paired with a dark or neutral tone, spring pastels are like a breath of fresh air.
If it suits your style, it can be fun to use a riot of spring colors. Due to the similarity in their depth, spring pastels are easy to combine. When using a lot of colors, keep other elements similar to create a harmonious design. Centerpieces overflowing with pink, yellow, and lilac sweet peas would be perfect for a romantic garden wedding. Arrange them in white footed vases and set then on pale green tablecloths for a beautiful effect. Keep colorful cloths and flowers from overwhelming your reception by using crisp white for your napkins and chairs.
The same concept works wonderfully for bridal attire. You could choose a patterned bridesmaid dress, such as a madras check, with lots of great spring hues. White pearl bridesmaid jewelry and neutral colored shoes will keep the look balanced. Prints are a great way to mix and match a large palette of pastels. Try to choose a trio of fabrics such as one stripe, one large floral, and one tiny geometric to blend together. The patterns can be used on tablecloths, throw pillows for a reception lounge, and even on the wedding cake. The result is eclectic, but still pretty, informal, and very welcoming for your guests.
Another option is to select two spring shades to combine into a unique spring wedding palette. Any of the spring pastels can be blended, but a few of the combinations are more popular than others, specifically: pink with green, blue with yellow, and lilac with green or yellow. Pink and green is probably the easiest palette to cialis online use, because of the easy availability of flowers, linens, bridesmaid dresses, and bridesmaid jewelry in a soft rose tone.
If white is too traditional, you can even consider a pale pink bridal gown! The blue and yellow palette has a nice appeal for both grooms and brides, as it is not quite so girly, and the lilac palettes are lovely for brides who enjoy pastels, but not necessarily the preppy style of pink and green. Whichever colors you choose, it is nearly impossible to go wrong with a pretty spring colored wedding!
