Spring is already in the air - can you feel it? Cold, dark days transition into sunlight and blue sky afternoons. The earth grows soft from rain and blushes with color, and tree branches practically reach for the clouds as they sprout leaves and soak in the sun.
With so much life happening and the possibility of new beginnings, it's no wonder spring is such a beautiful season to have a wedding.
If you're planning a spring wedding, take a look at our spring 2018 wedding inspiration. Some of these ideas are trending and some are classic spring staples. Mix and match to make them your own!
You don't have to replicate an Easter basket for your spring wedding color palette.
If you want to create a mystical mood consider colors like ultra violet (Pantone's color of the year), azalea (also happens to be a spring flower), sea glass teal, blue, and gray.
If you're head over heels for pastels, but want something more toned down than a Marie Antoinette tea party, think soft colors like peach, periwinkle, ivory, and white.
If you're a classic romantic, your spring colors might include pink, eucalyptus green, silver, and cream rose.
If spring were a signature cocktail, what would it be?
Maybe it's a Blushing Bride - a mix of peach schnapps, grenadine, and champagne with a sprig of lavender for garnish.
Or perhaps it's an Apple Blossom, which features champagne, elderflower, rose soda water, and apple-infused vodka.
Or it could be one of the many other libations you can find in this signature cocktail finder.

Embody spring in your wedding favors by giving gifts of nature. Think heart-shaped bird seed, plantable seed packets, potted plants, jars of honey, and beeswax candles.
When it comes to spring wedding decor, it's all about flowers: flowers in unexpected places (tucked in a napkin, hanging installations), paper flowers (great for backdrops if fresh flower walls are too expensive),edible flowers (top your cake and desserts with them), and greenery and flowers overflowing from dresser drawers (perfect for a whimsical dessert table).
You can also decorate with eggs (used as place cards or table numbers), watering cans, umbrellas, citrus, branches, butterflies, buckets of floating flowers and candles, lanterns, and twinkling lights.
