Moving right along in 2013 we are warming up in temperature and into peak wedding season. A favorite, Spring and Summer wedding seasons offer brides the opportunity for beautiful outdoor venues.
But even if you are not planning a strictly outdoor wedding, brides can look for decor inspiration and bring a little nature indoors. Melissa on the designinspirationalist.com blogs, “having a spring wedding allows for nature to play an important role in the decor.” Embrace natural elements and textures to work with wedding decor colors.
Looking for inspiration, “the colors of spring range from pastels and creams to vibrant hues that can easily be taken from nature.” Wedding flowers and greenery can set the stage for decor with rich or softly, subtle colors. But don’t forget about the power of textures, especially in such a beautiful season as Spring, that can be brought into decor with natural elements like branches, bark and moss.
A romantic at heart? Style a Spring, shabby chic and rustic wedding with natural elements, the popular 2013 pastel palette and vintage decor items. The beauty of Spring can be brought to life with cherry, plum or orange blossom branches in arrangements or look to Spring flowers like tulips, or peonies. Keep flowers and branch blossoms soft within the pastel palette to accent vintage vases and china graciously, tying into the shabby chic theme.
If pastels aren’t your palette preference, lets work from the other end of the spectrum with some rich, deep natural hues. Rich greens and browns with wildflower accents are perfect for a rustic, barn wedding decor. Exposed wood and simple decor items like haystacks, galvanized metal and mason jars will play on the beauty of simple, rustic wildflowers.
Melissa at thedesigninspirationalist.com gives us one last tip, that is to utilize personal touches to make your special day meaningful. Once you’ve worked seasonal and decor items into your wedding theme don’t forget special touches that speak to the bride and groom. After all isn’t that what your wedding day is about!
