How to include a touch of Easter in your wedding

219 0

Easter is a time for love, reflection, and spending time with family and the ones you love. And despite only 1% of couples choosing to get married on Easter weekend each year, it can actually be a great time to get everyone together for a wedding. Unless you have guests who are potentially going away, getting married around Easter means that you can use the time of year in your theme, as well as make the most of the long weekend days off work. So if you’re thinking of having a wedding around Easter time, here are some subtle ways you can incorporate the time into your big day. easter wedding inspiration Image by Jennings Media.

So incorporating some pastel colours into your wedding can be a great way to bring the theme in a bit. Bright and spring-time colours like pastel yellows, pinks, blues and greens are a lovely way to bring the season to your day. You can opt for this in your decorations, invitations, or even your wedding party. As with any theme you want to make sure that if you’re putting a few colours together, you’re not making anything clash. Pick two feature colours to use as your main scheme and use these for your big-ticket items, such as your bridesmaid dresses and invitations. Lighter touchers in florals, bomboniere or even desserts can then be used for these other colour features. image In which season will your wedding be?

Rather than going on the greenery trend of simple foliage, opt for big blooms and bright colours when it comes to your flowers. You might choose a floral hanging feature or a stunning flower wall for your guests to enjoy when it comes to photo time. Whatever it is, a focus on your blooms will add to that spring-time feel for your big day. Our favourite picks for flowers that are in season during this time include roses, proteas, irises, baby’s breath and of course daisies. easter wedding inspiration Image by Mr. Wigley.

A garden ceremony It may be getting a bit cooler of Easter to have your entire wedding outside, but having an element of it, such as your ceremony, outdoors is a great way to incorporate some nature into your day. Finding a location with a gazebo or hiring a clear marquee is a great way to celebrate your wedding outside without being prone to the elements during autumn. Plus there are always plenty of options when it comes to an outdoor ceremony only, whether it’s hiring a garden or finding a reception centre with an outdoor space. If you’ve got the cover you can also celebrate with a garden-party style canape hour for your guests while you get your photos done. easter wedding inspiration Image by Figtree Wedding Photography.

But if treating yourself to a chocolate dessert in a white dress gives you a bit of anxiety, opting for a dessert bar rather than a simple chocolate bar is a great way to celebrate the theme. A jar of eggs on display will look gorgeous with some pastel coloured macarons, while still giving that Easter-y feel. A dessert buffet will also work to bring people together to celebrate that family focus during Easter. easter wedding inspiration Image by L’evo Photography. See the real wedding.

Food is still one of the most popular choices for bomboniere, and chocolates are also a big one, so Easter eggs won’t be too far out of the wedding realm.

From a silk pastel ribbon bringing your bouquet together or ribbons in the hair of your bridesmaids to a sweeping ribbon and macrame feature, you can make these as obvious or as subtle as you like. It’s the smaller details that can really help bring a theme together so if you are opting for a ribbon feature then run with it and keep it consistent across your theme and colour scheme. We also recommend going for a more solid ribbon, such as silk, rather than something transparent.
