Spring wedding season typically runs from March until mid-June. Spring weddings are the perfect opportunity to incorporate pastel colors, beautiful blooms, and warmer weather into your special day. 

Typically the season that is most popular for weddings is from late May to early October. The Spring wedding season is usually hard to plan a wedding during the spring season due to weather. 

As the saying goes, “April flowers bring May flowers,” so you can expect lots of rain, wind, and unfavorable conditions for an outdoor wedding in spring. You can also expect gorgeous flowers, warmer weather, and sunshine depending on the day. 

Is a March Wedding Considered Winter or Spring?

A March wedding is considered to be during the spring season. In March, many parts of the world still experience freezing temperatures, so it may not seem like the best time to have a wedding. In other parts of the world, March is warm and perfect for an outdoor spring wedding. 

What Is the Least Popular Month for Weddings?

The least popular months for weddings are January, February, and March.

While March is one of the least popular months for weddings, it should be noted that in some parts of the world March offers some warm temperatures that would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.

If you live in an area that has warm March temperatures, you may see cheaper prices for wedding venues during this month.

Spring colors are typically light, and pastel in color. Think light pink, pastel blue, lavender, white, pale yellow and lots of floral accents. Springtime wedding decor is delicate and compliments the natural blooms of the season.

Choose a color scheme that goes well with your theme and venue. For example, if you are having an Easter themed wedding, you may want to incorporate pastel Easter egg colors into your color palette. If you are having an outdoor garden wedding, you may want to use some colors that compliment the natural blooms at your venue.

Spring Wedding Bouquets

Spring is the season of blooming florals, so why not embrace the season? Opt for colorful bouquets full of seasonal blooms for the ultimate spring look. Fresh flowers are the perfect accessory for the springtime bride. 

As for the bridal bouquet, spring blooms such as baby blue hydrangeas, pale pink peonies, and white flowers can create a soft, spring bridal look. Tie spring colored ribbons around bouquets for an extra pastel touch. 

Spring blooms can also be incorporated into the bridesmaid bouquets. Traditionally bridesmaid bouquets are similar to the bride’s bouquet, which is full of fresh flowers. Arrange spring wedding flowers into gorgeous arrangements for your bridesmaids. 

Seasonal Cocktails

For spring weddings, there is lots of cocktail inspiration! Use fresh fruit to create seasonal drinks. For example, using seasonal fruits such as strawberries is a great way to include parts of the season into your spring wedding reception.

Another idea for cocktails is to incorporate seasonal blooms into some floral wedding cocktails. 

If you are having an outdoor wedding, you can design wooden boards to describe what the drinks that you are serving are and what they have in them. 


Spring wedding color palettes can vary from pastel colors to fresh, bright tones. Depending on your spring wedding colors, have your bridesmaids wear sundresses. The light, airy, look will go well with the breezy yet sunny weather of springtime! 

Easter Baskets

Spring Animals

Baby animals such as chicks, lambs, bunnies, and butterflies often go hand in hand with springtime. If you are an animal lover, add small touches such as stuffed creatures on your table scape to add a cute touch to your spring table settings. 

You may also consider getting married on a farm where you can have fur friends and farm animals in attendance!

Seasonal Menu 

Make sure you serve seasonal foods at your wedding if you want to have a spring theme. Foods such as fresh garden vegetables, fresh fruit, and other vibrant spring harvest foods! 

Robin’s Nests

A robin’s egg in a nest is an image that reminds us of spring. Why not incorporate a robin’s egg as something blue at your wedding? Decorate your table with mini robin’s nests, or include the imagery on your wedding invitations. 


If you are having an outdoor reception, add some entertainment for both younger and older guests by hanging swings off of trees or near the reception. 

Outdoor Wedding Venue

If you are having a barn wedding, you can even decorate the interior of the barn with hanging parasols from the ceiling. 

Deviled Eggs

Spring Greenery 

One wedding reception idea is to use greenery instead of florals to decorate your venue. Hang greenery throughout your reception venue space for a fresh look without the pinks, blues, and purples of spring florals. 

Rain Boots

As the common phrase goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” If you are having your wedding in April, a cute idea is to have your bridesmaids wear rain boots or decorate your ceremony space with cute rain boot decor. 

Spring Seating Chart

Creating the seating chart at your wedding can be a struggle. Usually when couples organize their table settings for reception tables, they create a seating chart so guests can find where they sit.

For the spring season, it is the perfect time to use creative seating chart designs. For example, hang flowers from a tree with the guests names and table number. 

Garden Furniture

If you are having a garden wedding, use benches and other garden furniture to transform your venue. Decorate with wedding signs that look like they belong in a garden to tie your theme together!

Lattice Details

Lattice is a springtime pattern because oftentimes we associate it with gardens. If you are having a spring garden wedding, incorporate lattice details into your wedding decor. 

Give Away Your Flowers

A great wedding idea that also makes sure that all your florals don’t go to waste is to give your wedding flowers away at the end of the night. Some brides choose to see which wedding guests have been married the longest and give away their floral arrangements to them.

A great way to tie in pastel spring wedding colors into your bridal look is by wearing a pair of floral or pastel heels.
