Spring wedding: a burst of colours and scents

Spring is a particularly popular season for bridal couples. Although it is necessary to book several months in advance due to the high volume of requests, spring weddings can have their advantages. The mild climate makes it possible to organise outdoor events even during the day, leaving room for alternative formulas such as brunches, picnics and travelling buffets, with tasting itineraries, themed corners inspired by local cuisine, and spectacular arrangements with seasonal fruit and cakes.

Nature, overflowing with flowers, can become the leitmotif of the ceremony and the entire reception, offering ideas for creating poetic and colourful arrangements.

Spring wedding arrangements

Symbol of novelty and rebirth, spring is the season of bright green and rich blooms. Pastel shades such as peach pink, lilac, mint green, lemon yellow and light blue are favoured in this period. Very peri, the 2022 Pantone colour, will dominate the wedding palette. This new shade, which comes close to lavender and periwinkle blue, is perfect in contrast with neutral tones such as grey and ecru, but also in combination with bright tones such as fuchsia and burgundy. The floral compositions, in glass, suspended, rich in vegetation or combined with seasonal fruits, will be the focus of the ceremony and reception. In addition to roses, which are perfect for creating sophisticated wedding arches, nature offers beautiful varieties during this period, including peonies, freesias, tulips, calla lilies, hydrangeas, daisies and buttercups.

Surrounded by greenery, among of the most popular locations after the long months of lockdown, they provide the ideal inspiration for country chic, shabby chic, boho chic and eco-chic arrangements, blending natural elements with refined details. The cottagecore, a style inspired by noble country residences, is very trendy and can create suggestive outdoor “lounges”, with velvet seats perfectly integrated in the green of English gardens.

Wedding dresses: boldness and lightness

In addition to traditional shades such as white and ivory, brides will be able to show off a wide range of pastel tones: from soft green to powder blue, from antique pink to powder pink. The new trends in wedding dresses leave room for colour, an element that gives the outfit a touch of liveliness and originality.

Spring calls for light fabrics, to be embellished with lace, embroidery and sophisticated details. Mermaid models alternate with vaporous tulle skirts, Art Deco style dresses and bohemian inspired dresses. The more daring can opt for short dresses with bell-shaped skirts, structured models with imposing puffed sleeves, androgynous suits, asymmetrical lines to be enhanced with bows and ruffles.

Honeymooners: the most popular destinations in spring

The season is ideal for leaving fatigue behind and flying to faraway destinations such as the United States, South America, Australia, India and Japan, where the cherry trees are in bloom in the spring months. But Europe also offers incomparable wonders. Recommended destinations during this period include the Algarve in southern Portugal, Andalusia, Alsace, the Côte d’Azur, Holland, with its vast expanses of tulips, and some of Europe’s most fascinating capitals, such as Paris, Budapest and Vienna.

For those who want to spend their honeymoon discovering the beauty of our territory, you are spoiled for choice: cities of art, breathtaking landscapes, crystal-clear sea, fairytale villages. Regions such as Sardinia and Sicily, between April and May, offer enchanting spectacles not only on the coast, but also inland.
