The Best Spring Wedding Colors

There are lots of spring wedding colors to choose from, but there are also many that could turn out to have a negative impact on your wedding.

It's important to pick colors which reflect the theme of your spring wedding, rather than colors that may work together individually.

It really depends what kind of spring wedding themes you are looking at, and it's wise to make some sort of concrete decision on this before you start looking at the colors.

Once you have decided on the theme, there are a few things to consider that are unique to having a spring wedding.

Spring is the perfect time to have a wedding because of everything it represents and the beauty that is resplendent all around the world. It is a time of rebirth and growth, giving new life to the world after winter and this means you’re going to want to choose brighter colors that reflect this Spring-like atmosphere. It's a good idea to stray away from colors that are dark or have little brightness.

Colors like burgundy (a particularly dark shade) and purple are almost certain to create the wrong kind of atmosphere at your spring wedding, so you’re going to want to avoid those at all costs. _________________________________________________________________


White is always a popular choice of course if you’re looking for purity, or light blues and greens that reflect nature. Those colors would look fantastic if you use different shadings well.

Try to take one main color, for example a light blue, and then use different shades for different parts of your wedding. This will give some nice variety and ensure that you can have certain parts standing out, while others are more subtle in their appearance.

If, for example, you were going to use blues as your spring wedding colors, you’d probably want to use a very pale blue shade for the bridesmaids and a stronger blue color in and around your floral decorations. As the color should be reflected throughout the wedding, you’d want a pale, but not too bright, blue to be used in your invitations. This will provide you the perfect balance and keep a wonderful amount of variety in terms of color.

Of course, if you want to use stronger colors as highlights to your wedding, then you’re probably going to want to use them more sparingly. For example, if you wanted to use a stronger shade of blue as your starting color, then you’re probably going to want to avoid using too much of that, in favour of using it primarily to highlight particular focal points. This contrasts with using a lighter blue which you can use throughout your theme.

Take plenty of time to think about which colors go well together and how you are going to integrate them into your theme. Green and white go together very well in a spring wedding, but green and blue will not, even if they are both individually perfect for that time of year.
