Couples that opt for spring weddings have a lot going for them: fresh flowers are in an abundance, springtime pastel hues lend themselves perfectly to bridesmaids dresses and wedding venue décor—and it’s very possible that there will be a wee sprinkling of rain (just enough for good luck!).
Of course, a classic spring wedding should consist of plenty of light and airy colors, florals, and greenery—but there’s so much more to consider than meets the eye. That’s why we reached out to a handful of wedding planners and event specialists to get their insights on spring wedding décor ideas that range from fresh to traditional.
Here are some of our favorite spring wedding decorating ideas that’ll help you conjure up visions of your own spring wedding décor:
1. Blush-hued wildflower arrangements
“A wildflower bouquet or arrangement can add a touch of natural beauty to your big day,” says Tyler Quiel, founder and event planner at Giggster. “Consider using flowers that grow naturally in the area where your wedding is taking place, such as daisies, roses, lilies, and more. By using local flowers, you'll be helping to support your local economy as well as adding a touch of natural beauty to your wedding.”
2. Floral ceremony backdrops or photo ops
“One way to decorate for a spring-themed spring wedding is to use floral fabrics,” says Quiel. “You can hang these fabrics from the ceiling, drape them over doorways, or use them as a photo op background to provide a moment of entertainment for your guests.”
3. Make use of artificial cherry blossoms
“Spring weddings should include some form of elegant flora, such as ivy, cherry blossoms, eucalyptus, and magnolia leaves to bring in some natural glamour,” suggests Quiel. We like the idea of filling rustic or farmhouse-inspired vases with artificial cherry blossoms to create a gorgeous pop of pink and blush hues.
4. Become one with butterflies
“Spring is the best time of year to embrace all things beautiful and emerging—but my favorite is butterflies,” shares Juls Sharpley, founder of Bubbles & Bowties. “There are so many amazing things you can do with them, like adding dainty butterfly garland to your ceremony or reception.”
5. Allow tulips to take center stage
Tulips are one of the most beautiful tell-tale signs of spring—so it only makes sense to incorporate the colorful flowers in the ceremony or as a table centerpiece. “Consider using soft colors like pink, lavender, and light blue to create a dreamy atmosphere,” suggests Quiel.
6. Consider adding pops of pastel to your tablescape
“Pulling in pastel-colored linens—whether patterned or solid but textured—adds so much depth to your spring wedding design, “ adds Sharpley. “We love a pale lilac napkin on unglazed stoneware plates with a beautiful textured soft white table linen.”

7. Consider a rain-proof welcome sign
“Wedding signage is one of our favorite ways to set the stage for guests, elevate the event, and create a cohesive aesthetic throughout the celebration,” says Kori Trotter, owner & creative director, Lily & Roe Co. “If you are hosting an outdoor wedding this spring, signage is a simple, easy décor option to include. Choose a material like acrylic to make sure your sign can hold up to a breeze or a few raindrops and be sure to select colors and fonts that tie into your wedding theme.”
8. Whimsical watercolor wedding invitations
Floral wedding invitations will always be a safe (and beautiful!) option for spring weddings—but if you want to opt for something a little more unique without sacrificing the spring feel, you’ll want to consider hand-painted watercolor wedding invitations. This custom wedding invitation set will feature the real venue that you’ve chosen for your big day, adding a beautiful personal touch to the keepsake invitation.
9. Wedding favors for the birds
Spring-inspired wedding favors are fun and whimsical—but we particularly love the idea of an edible favor for the birds. This bird seed mini wedding favor will allow your guests to reconnect with nature and become amateur birdwatchers in the process.
10. Boutonnieres for the boys
Boutonnieres might have become less popular over the years—but a springtime wedding is a perfect time to bring them back. This set of rustic artificial flower boutonnieres looks just like the real deal and can be a great option for those with younger children in their wedding party—but fresh boutonnieres will also be abundant come springtime.
