Spring is the perfect time to experiment with different, possibly even bolder colours. Forgo the deep burgundy’s and plums – this time of the year is all about bright, pastel and just some darn pretty hue’s. Don’t you agree?
Planning a Spring wedding? Highlight the bright hues that this oh so lovely seasons will bring. This chic explosion of complementary colours is just lush. Add small touched of pale blue for a touch of romance, or a metallic table cloth for understated glamour. These bold colours make for a playful palette that’s eclectic and super pretty.

Embrace this blooming season in full force. Green, Pantone inspired, garlands of ivy, lemon leaves or seeded eucalyptus will add a fresh look to long feasting tables or aisles; which, in fact are already set to be a huge trend this year.
Why not opt for flowering branches, like cherry blossoms or forsythia—they’ll add height to your reception tables and make for easy conversation. Just take a look at these examples we have for you, we are totally crushing over the low hanging, industrial style light in contrast to the fresh ever-green ivy and greenery.
Take advantage of spring flowers like sweet peas, lilacs, hyacinths, tulips and, peonies (everyone’s favourite wedding flower, surely?). Plus, choosing in-season stems gives you the freshest flowers and most for your money too!

The Floral Print…
The floral print is all over the high street at the moment, ranging from barely there silhouettes to bold statement designs, London fashion week runways were made from floral prints, and it’s undoubtedly one of the hottest patterns of this season. I’m yet to go have a new Zara haul, seriously take a look at their floral print’s section. GORGEOUS and wedding guest worthy are the only word I have.
Want to stick with white? Dress your bridesmaids in a beautiful posy print instead. Trust us, they will love it! You could even opt for a floral tie for the groom and pocket squares for the groomsmen to tie the whole bridal party look together.
Floral print is also so in at the moment for bridal gowns, beautiful, flowing rose print dresses are adorning the catwalks and designed by the most luxurious designers (we’re talking Charlotte Balbier, Romantica, Hemoine de Paula, and many more!).
If this is what you are particularly in to, then we may have a few this Sunday for you to come and swoon over, at Bawtry Hall, a luxury wedding fair,12-3pm.
