Spring wedding looks have always included a variation of floral design, but this season is looking much more subdued and vintage. The colors are more muted, the lace is more antique, and the flowers are suitable for high tea.
The "princess bride" has been a common wedding theme for ages, but with the recent live-action revival of Cinderella, a unique twist has been introduced to the classic fairy tale. This trend is all about subtle royalty, with hinds of blue and gold and delicate opulence throughout.
Every year, Pantone's "Color of the Year" takes over the wedding industry, but this one took off a bit sooner than expected. "Marsala" is a color that many would deem suitable for fall, but it's been noticeably incorporated into spring weddings, too. When paired with softer blushes and pastels, the deep wine color doesn't look quite as "cold weather."
If you're part of a fandom, there's no need to not incorporate that into your wedding day. Brides have been introducing their nerdier sides more and more, and it can be done in a variety of ways. From adding in sophisticated touches throughout traditional wedding decor, to going all-out in costumes and comic strips, whatever you're into can shine on your big day.
All About that Lace
Lace used to just be reserved for wedding gowns, but now it's seen in everything from decor, invitations, bridesmaids looks, and centerpieces.

This trend has been especially popular in my local area and has been blowing up on Pinterest as well. Classic lace dresses are a staple for this theme. For the ceremony and reception, barn venues, burlap and lace decor, mason jars, chalkboard signs, and simple flowers will fit the scene.
Downton Abbey and the upcoming Great Gatsby movie have made 1920s glam weddings very popular. Designers like Jenny Packham and Claire Pettibone are the go-to creators for 20's gowns. Metallic touches in decor and speak-easy parties for receptions are perfect touches. Be careful, though - this theme can go flapper-costume-ey and super cheesy very quickly. Keep it classy!!
Definitely a choice for a non-traditional bride, and one she won't regret. This spring a variety of pastels have been popular, from blush, sherbet, mint, and lavender. For an evening wedding, gold and champagne colored dresses are key.
Who would have thought that birds would be the next big thing? From quaint lovebirds as cake toppers to birdcages as card boxes, feathered friends are showing up everywhere. Dresses are even being made with bird patterns and feathers. For an outdoor spring garden wedding, this motif can be extraordinarily cute.
Grey and Yellow
Another Pinterest favorite, this color scheme is perfect for spring or summer. While yellow dresses can be difficult for bridesmaids, grey dresses with yellow shoes make a great alternative and make a great blank slate for bright yellow flowers; yellow roses, cala lilies, and billy balls accented with dusty miller leaves are perfect. For the men, grey suits and yellow ties are very popular. Grey bowls filled with lemons make great reception centerpieces.
