Spring Colour Schemes for a Seasonal Wedding
Daffodils, brighter days and a little touch of warmth, spring is the season of hope. It conjures images of joy and happiness, perfect for your big day. If this season is for you, then here are some spring colour schemes to fill your day with magic!
Spring weddings are popular for a reason! Fresh flowers and sunny spells create a beautiful aesthetic, whilst the off-season label makes them more affordable than summer soirees. A wedding in March, April or May could be a clever way to save a few pennies, whilst still including many elements of a summer wedding – especially with these spring colour schemes! Additionally, in late spring, you’ll even have the balance of warmer weather without the heat of August.
Embrace the natural elements and the gorgeous colours that epitomise this season and you’ll have a wedding to remember!
There are so many beautiful colours associated with spring, which can easily be incorporated into your scheme. Soft pastel hues, natural greens or yellows, whether it’s in little touches or bold uses, spring colours bring things to life. The colours you choose can help transform your day from April showers into April flowers!
Spring Colour Schemes –
Spring Green –
Nothing conjures up feelings of springtime more than lush greenery. After winter, when the flowers and trees start to bloom again, green is everywhere. This makes it perfect for a spring colour scheme. For a soft, romantic wedding, opt to pair green with white. Combine foliage with gentle white fabrics and touches of wood detailing for an organic, fresh and overall gorgeous wedding.
Consider having green bridesmaid dresses, complemented with large foliage bouquets with a few white stems. These will pair beautifully with cute boutonnieres of greenery and white blooms. Create an ethereal ceremony space with white flowing curtains, decorated with foliage and candle lanterns. Tie this into your reception with white table clothes or chairs decorated with white fabric. This scheme is all about creating a soft, natural setting, full of all the whimsy your day deserves.

Blue Peach –
Think feminine and floaty, soft blue and muted peach couldn’t be prettier for a spring colour scheme. This palette is delicate, with the soft blue reminiscent of a clear sky and the peach adding contrasting warmth. Opt for floaty dresses and light summer suits, evoking the feeling of a chic garden party. Complement this style with floral garlands and foliage.
Regarding florals, fill your bouquet with lush greenery, such as eucalyptus and baby’s breath. Add in peach roses, blue hydrangea or anemones, with their contrasting blue centre.

Complete the look with watercolour stationery, decorated with delicate peach coloured flowers and a matching styled cake – delicate and classic, topped with springtime blooms.
A Touch Of Yellow –
Yellow is a colour evocative of springtime, especially a soft pale yellow. For a unique, elegant spring colour scheme, pair pale yellow with lavender. Whilst this palette is a little more vibrant than others, it is very romantic and perfect for springtime. If bold isn’t for you, then opt for soft watercolour washes of purple combined with lemon yellow. These colours are evocative of a spring garden in full bloom!
Opt for simple white or ivory stationary with small graphic embellishments in purple and yellow. Consider using a floral motif in your stationery that you can tie into the rest of the scheme. Dried flowers would look beautiful in this spring colour scheme, such as dried lavender stems paired with dainty yellow flowers. However, if dried flowers aren’t for you, consider purple hellebores, lavender sweet peas or mustard colour ranunculus.
Grey Rose –
Pink is one of the most popular wedding colours, especially blush pink, because it is just so romantic! You can pair this pale colour with lots of other great colours, however, it works particularly well with a beautiful dove grey. This will create a timeless, elegant spring colour scheme. Keep your decor simple and let the colours shine through – consider wooden tables with dove or slate-coloured napkins. This would be well complemented by pale blush pink macarons as wedding favours on each plate.
This scheme is also a good choice for a less traditional wedding dress. Why not choose a soft pale grey or blush dress and contrast your bridesmaid in the other colour. Think lace gowns or tulle layers, embroidery detailing and feminine silhouettes. Tie this into your floral arrangements, centrepieces or even stationary by colour matching it to trailing pink and grey ribbons.
These schemes are all about creating a soft, natural setting, full of all the whimsy your day deserves.
Overall, spring is a lovely time to get married. Embrace the natural elements and the gorgeous colours that epitomise this season and you’ll have a wedding to remember! Fill your space with floaty fabrics, candles and foliage to create a magical, whimsical wedding that neither you nor your guests will ever forget. Springtime is the season of hope and what better way to celebrate than with a wedding!
