Spring weddings are all about new beginnings. Blooming flowers, sunny skies and chirping birds set the stage for wedded bliss. Spring wedding invitations reflect this theme, with warm colors and fresh designs paving the way for the season.
What colors come to mind when you think Spring? This year bright pastels make their mark. Orchid, mint, blush, pale yellow, rose and cerulean are all popular color choices for paper. Another twist this Spring is glittery gold, or images in glittery gold to catch a guest’s attention. These pastel choices mixed together make beautiful color combinations, such as mint and rose, or ombre shades of orchid.
Couples are thinking outside the box this spring. New ideas include state pride invitations (creating invitations in the shape of your state) or incorporating your dog into your wedding. Couples can hire graphic designers to add an artistic version of their beloved pup to their invitations, which is sure to generate a smile from guests.
If a theme wedding is right up your alley, then invitations to match are a must! Popular themes for Spring that can be incorporated into invitations include Disney, country chic, Spring florals and ‘green’ or eco-friendly weddings (think recycled paper for your invitations here!). Couples follow through by using the same idea throughout their wedding, from favors to place card settings.
Flowers are often the first symbols to pop into our minds when we think spring. Spring flowers are particularly memorable since in most parts of the country they are only available certain times of the year. Wedding invitations with soft tulips, pale yellow daffodils or lilac colored hyacinths are sure to be memorable for anyone.
