Fun Footwear

Splash out and treat yourself to a pair of wedding wellies. That way, when those pesky April showers show up, you’ll be free to run and jump in as many puddles as you like without fear of the resulting leaky Laboutins. Because, let’s face it, no bride wants to squelch her way down the aisle. And with wellies now coming in every conceivable colour and design, they make a practical, fun and cute alternative to traditional bridal and bridesmaid shoes.

Bridal Showers

Worrying about what the weather’s going to do is such a snooze, so why not take a different approach and embrace it in all its unpredictable glory?

Personalised white umbrellas for the wedding party make a great take-home gift for your attendants, whilst brolly-themed stationery, shaped soap favours, umbrella table centrepieces and of course, cocktail parasols in your reception drinks are a fun way to make a theme of the great British weather. There are plenty of companies who will hire out umbrellas for your guests to use too, so no-one need worry about getting a soaking. And who knows, you might get lucky and actually get rain on your big day!

Fresh as a Daisy

Make the most of the abundance of beautiful blooms this time of year and fill your day with floristry. Fresh flowers in the bride’s hair and floral headbands for bridesmaids are an inexpensive way to give the day a just-picked feel. And garlands of greenery and foliage rather than stems of more costly flowers can also help bring the countryside in without breaking the budget. Or why not incorporate floral and patterned elements into your fabric choices for a more whimsical and ultra-modern feel.

Cherry blossom pinks, vibrant yellows and cornflower blues look particularly fresh this time of year, but if you’re taking inspiration from the natural springtime colour palette, there’s no right or wrongs when it comes to colour choices.

Butterflies

The butterfly theme is a classic, but its appeal endures for good reason. It’s romantic, feminine, and light as air, making it the perfect motif for spring and summer weddings. There are plenty of ways to give the theme a modern twist, from butterfly-shaped literary confetti (see below), to butterfly bunting and hanging butterfly centrepieces. This is a theme you can absolutely make your own.

Complimentary Candies

For real springtime quirky cuteness, choose bridesmaid dresses, favours and table and venue decorations in contrasting, complimentary pastel colours. From blush pink, to mint green, these candy colours are pretty sweet on their own, but placed side by side they positively fizz. And who doesn’t want fizz on their wedding day?

Spring Greens

Nothing says timeless spring elegance like cream and green. Floral arrangements of hydrangeas, lilies, peonies, guelder roses and gypsophilia all give a soft focus to this classic, clean combination.
