We love a Spring Wedding. Wedding flowers and gardens are bursting back into life and are looking their best, with blossom on the trees and colourful spring bulbs popping out. Spring is often associated with new life and a fresh start, which couldn't be more apt after everything 2020 has thrown at us so far! Join us as we show you how to plan a Spring Wedding, full of unique and personal ideas, including how to decorate your marquee or venue with a wow-factor table scape, the best wedding catering tips, beautiful wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses that will be perfect for Spring, and bespoke wedding stationery ideas. All topped off with a curated edit of some of our favourite wedding presents from our online showroom that you'll love in any season!
When it comes to Spring inspired interiors, colour plays a big role. Spring colours are warm, bright and light - inspiring and fresh and full of happiness! Textures are cosy and natural like white washed woods, sheepskin and natural cotton and linen.
Fresh, bright and cheerful these are all wedding presents that will stand the test of time. Choose wisely and it doesn't matter what season it is, these are the kind of wedding gifts you will love, and use, for a lifetime. Use your wedding gift list to set you up for life. Book a private appointment in our iconic London showroom to meet your personal wedding list advisor, and learn how to build a wedding list full of beautiful presents that will stand the test of time.
Spring is a great time to choose seasonal flowers such as peonies, tulips, hyacinths, stephanotis, freesia, ranunculus, tuberoses, sweet peas and English Garden Roses. Then you can mix these in with flowers that are available all year round such as roses, lilies, gerbera and daisies. Lex Hamilton Floral Studio have done such inspiring and modern floral arrangements for weddings.
In terms of flower style, we love to mimic the outdoors in Spring and have quite loose, wild and romantic floral arrangements and wedding bouquets.
‘’Spring weddings are becoming increasingly popular – partly due to the settled weather we have experienced over the last few years – but also beating the rush of the summer months which tend to be chocka with weddings and holidays. Whilst you don’t get the long summer evenings, it brings guests inside the marquee getting the party started earlier, and emphasises the atmospheric lighting on display.’’

You can have some fun with colour in your Spring Wedding Table design. If you are more hesitant to go for a bold look, start with classic base of neutral linens, cotton and crockery and then build in some colour and texture with your napkins, glassware and wedding flowers. Our go-to colours for Spring Weddings are bright pinks, soft yellows and sage greens. For more inspiration head to our Spring Weddings Pinterest Board.
"To make the most of the Spring ingredients we would recommend serving Lamb Cutlets, Early Season New Potatoes with Watercress and Asparagus for your main course at your wedding breakfast. We would serve this with a sharp salsa verde. For dessert you could serve a Rhubarb and Almond Tart with Ginger Cream and a Pistachio Crumb."

"Spring is one of my favourite seasons and the creation of your wedding invitation suite offers you the opportunity to tie together all of the beautiful colours and flowers that are abundant during Spring.
If you are planning to keep the design of your stationery pared back and simple, taking inspiration from the seasons for your colour palette can add a sense of personality while providing your guests with the first glimpse of what they can expect on your wedding day. By adding small pops of colour through your choice of ink, card and envelope colours, or the shade of your finishing touches, you can easily create seasonally specific wedding stationery.
However I also love incorporating original illustrations of flowers into my stationery designs, and Spring offers such a great range of flowers to choose from with their beautiful blousy heads, delicate petals and twisting fronds. Floral illustrations lend themselves so well to being embossed in foil which perfectly picks out the delicate details, feeling fresh and crisp for Spring."

"Think of Spring and you think of re-birth and reawakening and there are three perfect Jesus Peiro dresses that have the season woven through them.
Lastly, the Jesus Peiro the 206 . Woven dragonflies dart across the bustier and jacket of this ground-breaking three piece look. A light duster jacket for a fresh Spring day can be taken off and the palazzo pants combo will let you dance til dawn."
