How to add Spring Charm to your DIY Wedding.
Spring is one of the most popular times of the year for a wedding, and it’s not hard to see why. It is the season of new beginnings, which makes it the perfect time to tie the knot. From 20th March, the official first day of Spring, we can look forward to longer days, flowers in full bloom and milder weather. If you have your heart set on an outdoor wedding, the spring months may be a perfect time for your special day. And if you’re a bride on a budget, by picking a date early in the season, when venues and suppliers are in less demand, you’ll be able to keep costs down. Making your own wedding invitations at home can be another great way to create a unique event without breaking the bank.
Add Florals to Your Design
As we bid farewell to winter and welcome spring, trees and flowers are starting to burst into life. Adding a floral touch to your wedding invitations will set the scene for your guests and tie in with your spring theme. Choose flowers that bloom in spring, such as tulips, hyacinths, peonies, freesias and primrose. Laser-cut wedding invitations are a stunning style of wedding stationery with almost endless design possibilities.
Alternatively, to really bring your invitations to life and add another dimension, why not try adding some decorative flowers to your creation?
Use a Spring Colour Palette
Consider adding spring colours to your wedding invitations. These tend to be muted or pastel shades inspired by nature and blossom — think blush pink, peach and lemon yellow. However, this is your day and there are no rules. The choice can be overwhelming when selecting your colour theme. Checking out the latest wedding colour trends can be a great way to start developing your wedding invitation ideas. Blush pink is extremely popular right now and has long-held connotations of love and romance. Consider selecting some subtle pink envelopes for your DIY wedding invitations or adding some shimmering marble rose ribbon to really capitalise on this gorgeous colour. What could be better for a day centred around celebrating your love?
Watercolours have been a popular trend in wedding invitations for many years, and this does not seem likely to change any time soon. Watercolours allow for a wide range of effects, from saturated to subtle. They are a great opportunity for the creative bride to let go and make a set of beautifully unique invitations. Don’t forget to implement your spring colour palette and be sure to use high-quality card or paper.
Be Brave and Use Patterns!
A spring wedding invitation doesn’t have to be all about florals, pastels and muted shades. If you’re feeling bold, why not try adding polka dots, stripes or geometric shapes? Your choices are endless. Combine daring shapes with fair and light colours or go for broke by using bright colours for added pop. If you’re seeking a more modern look to your invitations, this could be a great option. Simply select some patterned paper and away you go.
So your brain is buzzing with wedding invitation ideas and you’re keen to get started selecting materials and colour themes.
