For those of you lucky enough to be living in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in QLD where I live you will be able to relate to the glorious Spring weather we are currently experiencing! I love this time of year, when it’s hot but not too hot, when the flowers have bloomed and there are baby animals everywhere!
Spring is also probably the most popular time to get married, so this blog will be dedicated to all things Spring. We’ve covered a few different elements here, but we’d love for you to send us your ideas and inspiration for Spring as well.
One of my favourite blogs, postcards and pretties has recently featured a beautiful photo shoot that I think epitomizes what Spring looks and feels like. Sunshine, butterflies, fresh blooms, all of the elements are there!
There are so many beautiful wedding invitations to choose from these days, and one of my favourite places to look is Etsy. The designs are often unique and have a more of a ‘one-off’ specialty feel than just buying ready-made. I love these invitations by Mavora – The gorgeous green’s on the invitation really lend itself to a Spring wedding.
Spring is an ideal time for delicious and bright salads, so why not go all out with the Spring theme and use some edible flowers to add colour and something unique to your dishes? I love the look of this “Eat your Garden” Salad, which I found on Sunset. I think it would make a great talking point as a starter at a lunch time reception in the garden!
Slip into Spring
Spring is all about colour, so why not go for a fresh, pretty dress that reflects your Spring wedding? Picking a dress with some colour can be the basis for the rest of your weddings theme and colours, and you can keep your accessories and flowers minimal, and let your dress do all the talking! I love this Jennifer Gifford design, as featured on theknot.com.au
Even if you aren’t inclined to choose a colourful or printed dress for your wedding dress, you can always use more subtle elements, such as a floral pattern that’s embroidered into the fabric, or some fabric flowers can be a beautiful way to add embellishment to a gown.
Whatever element of Spring you choose to incorporate into your big day, just remember what it represents: New life, a fresh start, beautiful colours, and fragrant touches to ensure it’s a day you never forget!
