For 2017 wedding stationery trends we are loving seasonal wedding themes. Matching your wedding stationery to your wedding day’s associated season is a really great way to incorporate a variety of colours. Every season has a very individual look, all of which make beautiful wedding colour themes. All you need to do is take inspiration from the colours in nature, seasonal flowers and even the weather! Here in the UK it may seem like it’s winter for a good 6 months of the year and then autumn for the rest but we do have four seasons. Yes, some countries actually get a full three months of summer sunshine!
Choosing a theme or colour for your big day can be quite tricky. The rise and popularity of places like Instagram and Pinterest mean that there is SO much inspiration out there – where do you even start? Of course in this blog we’re going to show you how picking seasonal wedding themes could be a great option for you…
Spring Weddings – March, April & May
In the springtime we see new buds blooming, new life being born and a subtle hint of sunshine just peeking through the clouds. There may still be a slight chill in the air but the emergence of delicate flowers such as daffodils and tulips makes it all worth while. The Spring months are mostly still classified as out of peak wedding season for venues and photographers etc. (May can sometimes be included in peak time). This of course means that most suppliers will have more flexibility with dates and may even charge you slightly less, if you’re lucky. As less people book their weddings in Spring you will also more likely have the majority of your guests attend. Planning a wedding in July sounds great until you realise half your guests already have a million other weddings to attend that month, not to mention holidays and other commitments. Symbols of Spring include; New born lambs, bunny rabbits, chicks and of course Easter. When looking at spring for seasonal wedding themes and colours we naturally lean towards soft pastel tones; baby pink, mint green, buttercup yellow etc. This colour palette is beautiful for not just your spring wedding invitations but also pretty pastel bridesmaid dresses, your wedding cake and of course the bouquet.
Bride Janet got married last spring “We got married on Easter Saturday, so our theme was really easy and kind of already picked for us. We went with Easter bunnies and chocolate mini eggs. Our look was achieved with the Ivy Ellen bunnies invites, a wedding cake decorated with mini eggs and a cake topper made especially to look like rabbits. We also filled clear plastic bunnies with mini eggs as our wedding favours. Our colour scheme was shades of lilac, purple and green, very spring like.”
For our Spring seasonal wedding theme we chose two designs – our ‘Bunnies’ wedding invitation and ‘Festoon’. Read the rest of this entry »
