Springtime may call to mind fresh blooms and pretty pastel hues, but those aren’t the only inspiring details for spring weddings. Modern couples are combining traditional elements with stark contrasts, including black accents and futuristic details, for their spring wedding celebrations. For more ideas, top planners and designers are sharing with Brides the biggest spring wedding themes to bookmark now, revisit later.
What says sunny weather more than tropical wedding décor? King protea bouquets, dripping centerpieces of orchids, and boutonnieres of birds of paradise will all lend a South Pacific feel to your wedding, so it’s no wonder that a tropical theme is hot for spring nuptials. Now, that doesn’t mean you should create a full-on luau, so you can leave the faux flower leis, tiki torches, and palm trees to the pool parties. Erica Taylor Haskins, the founding partner of Tinsel Experiential Design, recommends accenting time-honored décor with tropical touches so it doesn’t feel like a Hawaiian party pack.
“Incorporate smart and sophisticated accents of palm fonds, blushing bride protea, and orchids into more traditional floral installations,” Haskins says. It allows you to balance the venue and location where you are, even if it is an island beach, along with the tropical flair.
