Trending for Spring Weddings

Creative Transportation

Not so long ago, brides and grooms rented lavish limousines to transport them and their wedding party to the wedding venue and the subsequent reception location. While this allowed them to make a dramatic, high-fashion entrance, the cost associated with this mode of transportation was often difficult to swallow. In recent years, couples have opted for more unique means of transportation that add an interesting bit of flair to their event, and many are renting Vespa scooters or two-person bicycles. Since the weather should be a bit warmer by the time spring arrives, why not have some fun with a little open-air transportation?

Alternative Wedding Party Colors

For years, grooms and their groomsmen have worn black tuxedos at their weddings, but this is another trend that is falling by the wayside for spring weddings. All this black can get to feeling a little heavy, especially in the bright and cheery spring months. Many couples are choosing to think outside of the box with regard to the wedding party colors, and pastels are making a big comeback in the form of light-colored formal wear. If a pastel suit or tuxedo doesn’t seem like the right style for your nuptials, you could always incorporate pastels into other elements of your wedding.

Bright, Bold Bouquets

The winter of 2017 has been one of record snowstorms, and it seems that many couples are celebrating their spring nuptials by incorporating bright, bold colors in their bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces to counteract the cold, dreary months gone by. Thankfully, there is a wide assortment of flowers to choose from in the spring that will make your arrangements beautiful and affordable. You can’t go wrong with bright pinks, reds, and purples, and whether you choose roses, tulips, or another variety of flower, they are sure to complement your wedding party, especially if you chose lighter colored formal wear.

Unique Bridal Gowns

If there is one thing we have learned from recent bridal fashion shows it is that more and more brides are choosing unique wedding dresses that break the mold of traditional gowns. A few of the trends we have seen include:

  • Gloves. Are you looking for the right accessory to put the finishing touch on your gown? Wrist-length satin or lace gloves add instant elegance and femininity to any gown.
  • Lace galore. Many dresses are being crafted with lace overlays and voluminous sleeves and shoulders, adopting a look that is reminiscent of Shakespearean times.
  • Capelets. If you like the idea and appearance of a strapless dress but don’t want to be cold on your big day, incorporating outerwear into your dress can help.
  • Flowers and butterflies. Some of the hottest designers are including three-dimensional embellishments on their dresses to add a pop of spring.

If you’d like a dress that is special and custom-tailored to your body and style, working with a wedding dress designer can prove to be very beneficial.
