Spring makes a lovely time of year for weddings. The birds are tweeting, the scent of Sussex blossom lingers on every corner and everyone is filled with the cheer of a fading winter. Suddenly every turn is serving as inspiration for your big day and it is easy to get overwhelmed by the quantity of choice on offer. So here at Toast we have whittled down our favourite trends to help you narrow down your search.
One of our favourite wedding themes, and one we feel lends itself perfectly to spring, is vintage!
Elegant beaded dresses, mis-matched china, pink champagne and blousy bouquets of peony and cherry blossom make for a romantic, carefree kind of day. With vintage it is the little touches which make a difference. Pink champagne served in cut glass coups for drinks in the garden accompanied by the dazzling Thoroughly Modern Millie set the scene for your guests, allowing them to travel back to the decadence and glamour of a bygone age.
Then for the evening you can transform your venue into a 1920s speakeasy, complete with free flowing cocktails, dancing and a wedding band like Lady & The Dukes or The Pink Champagne Sisters blasting through the night. Add to the ambience and roaring twenties frolics with a Photobooth - complete with suitable flapper girl props to keep your guests amused throughout the night.
Fresh, Bright and Clean
If you are more about minimalist charm than elaborate glitz, Spring is the perfect backdrop for your elegant day. A clean, cool colour palette lends itself to the refined wedding, so swap out frilly flowers for sumptuous roses and delicately lace bouquets with vibrant green foliage or striking blue forget-me-not for a splash of contemporary colour.
Drinks of coolest champagne and canapés of smoked salmon and caviar should be served alongside delicate harp from Sally Whitaker to set a relaxed atmosphere and set the guests at ease.
To complement your refined wedding décor, lighting is key. Whether you opt for an ornate crystal chandelier or prefer to dine by candlelight, Love Letters provide an injection of personality whilst fitting in perfectly with the clean, elegant feel of your day. The letters also blend seamlessly into evening proceedings when the lights are dimmed and wedding band The Deloreans or Phonic Groove take to the stage, providing beautiful lighting for the packed dance-floor without resorting to the usual neon spotlights.
