Beautiful Spring Time Trend: Pink Wedding Themes

Each wedding season features its own popular wedding colors. Spring weddings are famous for pastels, lace and other vintage wedding details. One of the most popular wedding colors for a spring event is pink. The delicate coloring can be paired with purple and blue for a unique wedding color theme. Pink weddings don’t have to be overly feminine by using contrasting bright color combinations such as pink and green, pink and brown or pink and black. There are plenty of fun and unique ways to decorate a wedding with bright pink or pastel pink wedding colors.

These tissue paper pom poms are available in different shades of pink and look cute and chic when you pair them with paper lanterns. Tissue paper pom poms are all the rage for bridal showers, birthday parties and wedding reception decor. When pairing with paper lanterns use string lights and alternate between lanterns and tissue paper pom poms for an eclectic wedding style. This look can be adapted for any fun colorful spring wedding or holiday party.

A Green Scene: Planning an Outdoor Garden Wedding

A lush green garden, the scent of flowers on a cool breeze, the sun shining down on a couple standing under a beautiful arbor – it’s the ultimate wedding dream for many. But if you’re one of those who would love to have an outdoor wedding in a garden, there are several things you should keep in mind, like the weather, the decoration, and the setup. An outdoor wedding demands a whole different kind of plan, and it’s one that needs to be flexible as well as practical.

1. Setting the Date. Although it’s impossible to predict the weather far in advance, try to choose a time of year when the days tend to be sunny and rain-free, but not unbearably hot.

2. Developing a Plan B. A garden is lovely – except when it starts to bucket down with rain. Always have an alternative place to shift the ceremony and/or reception in case there is bad weather.

3. Deciding on a Tent and Lighting. You don’t have to have a marquee, but you should consider how you will light the event and whether you’ll need extra electrical connections.

4. Choosing a Theme and Color Scheme. Take your inspiration from the beauty of Nature and pick a floral theme, a ‘green’ palette or a rustic country theme.

5. Designing the Décor. The main advantage of holding your wedding outdoors is that Mother Nature will provide you with a beautiful backdrop. But you’ll have to decide what extra decorations, floral arrangements and tables and chairs you need.

Depending on the garden you choose, you can opt for any number of themes. Your own or your parents’ garden is always a lovely, homely choice, and you can build on that theme with rustic-inspired decorations. Hang Glass Lanterns, filling them alternately with candles and full-blown flowers. Try grouping together colored Glass Votive Holders for a really simple but pretty centerpiece. And fill jam jars or Glass Pitchers with hand cut seasonal flowers for a home-made look!

Flowers are a popular theme at weddings. One of the best contrasts with the green of a garden wedding is pretty, delicate pink. Forget cliché roses – choose the flamboyant peony as the symbol for your wedding, and fill the centerpieces, bouquets and aisle decorations with these dramatic blooms. You can extend the floral theme to smaller details like the place card holders and bottle openers, even the Favor Boxes, Invitations and Wine Bottle Labels.

A really beautiful theme that is easy to create is the vintage garden tea party. Use lots of authentically old pieces like the gorgeous distressed dresser in the picture below, used to display the cake. Have your bridal party dress in twenties or fifties style outfits, invest in some retro Hair Accessories, and go wild with long beaded necklaces, feathers and cocktail rings. Other great ideas: an old-fashioned White Birdcage to hold the place cards, Vintage Crystal Drop Candleholders in the center of each table, and a Personalized Aisle Runner with a traditional scroll to walk in on.

Feeling inspired? Great. But while you’re planning your fairytale garden wedding, don’t forget to consider these essential points.

  • Summer days can be very hot, so plan to rent free-standing fans or provide guests with Hand Fans.
  • Your menu needs to be practical – don’t order things that will melt after five minutes in the sun!
  • If you’re getting married during the popular summer holidays, book everything way in advance.
  • Open grounds are susceptible to gusty winds, so avoid having open flame lamps or candles.
  • Think about whether you will need to guard against mosquitoes, bees or other insects.
  • If you’re getting married at home, work out how much parking will be available for guests.
  • Decide how you will get an electrical supply for sound systems, fans etc.
  • Work out what lighting will be needed – Paper Lanterns, Spotlights or String Lights.
  • And always, ALWAYS have a backup plan in case it rains!

Game On! Sports Inspired Theme Weddings

With the Superbowl coming up this Sunday, is there anyone who isn’t thinking about football right now? If you’re less a fan and more a football fanatic, and your partner shares your passion, you might find a sports themed wedding is just right for you.

Football inspired weddings are a little bit tongue-in-cheek and a whole lot of fun, so why not work this theme to the max on your big day? Have little footballs printed on your invitations, use miniature balls in the centerpieces, and pick a humorous but oh-so-cute football or rugby themed cake topper. You don’t have to dress your bridesmaids in football jerseys – you could go the subtle route and simply use the colors of your team for everyone’s outfits. And if you can manage to hold your ceremony at a football stadium, make sure you have some candid action shots taken with the entire bridal party in a scrimmage! A football themed wedding is a wonderful way to honor your favorite sport and your favorite gal all at once!

For those whose pursuits are of the more sedate kind, a golf-theme wedding may be more to taste. A beautifully manicured golf course can be the perfect backdrop to a laid-back afternoon event, and you can move indoors for the evening meal. Take the grassy theme inside, with unusual green centerpieces, and replicate the golfer’s plaid design on napkins and tablecoths. For your golf themed wedding, you can even have special wine labels made in the same shades and shapes, and give your guests an adorable golf bag key chain as a wedding favor. A golf wedding is a beautiful springtime event!

If girly gorgeousness is more to your taste, you could skip the more macho sports and opt for a ballet themed wedding instead. The color palette for this scheme is so beautiful – all soft ivory, blush pink and deep rose. Slip your feet into sparkly ballet slippers, dress the flower girls in tutus, and go all out accessorizing with full-blown roses in pink and white. For the ballet wedding reception, dress up a sophisticated ballroom with elegant tableware, centerpieces filled with pink flowers, and rose petals everywhere. A pretty pink lollipop soap favor on everyone’s plate is sure to give a little color and joy to your guests!
