Spring Wedding Trends

Ah…the merry month of May!  With its pastel palette, natural beauty and warmer temperatures, there’s no wonder why May is one of the most popular months for weddings.  And every couple captures its essence in their own romantic way.  From camping themes to floral garland, some spring choices are more unique than others.  But it’s always interesting to track the popular trends.

With 3D creations and intricate laser cuts, the tone for the wedding is now being set from the minute the guests open the envelope.  And that tone, according to Bridal Guide, is “a move toward sophisticated.”  Think glamour, gardens…and Gatsby!

For the second year running, the soft, romantic, peony is the most requested wedding flower.  With the bloom available for only two months, May is the perfect time to pick a peony bouquet.

Traditional all-white gowns will always be in style, but many are now being splashed with color.  Blue lining underneath, pink lace across the back, or a vibrant shoe are just a few of the latest runway looks—along with pastel dresses.  Don’t be surprised if you see the bride “all dressed in mint” since that seems to be this year’s go-to hue.

Color is popping up on cakes as well.  Bright bows, bold monograms and hand-painted designs are making edible works-of-art worthy of their own photo shoot.  On the other end of the sweet spectrum, Fake Cakes have become a popular budget choice for photos.  The couple still gets their cake-side shot, while a sheet cake is waiting to be served.  Not a bad way to save money for a tropical island trip…which is still the top honeymoon destination, no matter what time of year.
