Ideas for Spring Weddings
There is nothing more lovely than a wedding ceremony held in a garden brimming with beautiful spring flowers, especially when the blossoms are dancing in the sunshine. There is something magical about saying your wedding vows in a springtime garden setting and charging your sparkling champagne glass afterwards in the golden sunlight.
Choose your favourite flower as your main wedding theme. Whether it is a peony or a daffodil, flowers can be some of the most beautiful inspirations for your big day. Replicate the flower's colours, blooms and scent in your day from your invitations to your bridesmaid's gowns to your reception table decor.
Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and host your ceremony and reception outdoors in a beautiful, bloom-filled garden setting. Pick fresh flowers for table decorations, have your bridesmaids wear blossoms from the garden in their hair and tie bows with fresh flowers into each table napkin.
Decorate your venue with flowers, paper lanterns in a rainbow of sherbert colours and paper flowers. There are some amazing paper flower designs on the internet, but the best we have found are at Martha Stewart. You can string giant tissue paper flowers from your marquee ceiling to capture the springtime breezes and float around your reception.
Another gorgeous springtime decorating tip is to handpick a mixture of flowers from your garden (and others willing to help) and decorate each table at your reception with bunches of mismatched blooms. In the right setting this look can be more adventurous and pretty than expensive out of season centrepieces. Just make sure you have heavy bunches of flowers with lots of open blossoms - don't scrimp or this can look cheap.
Favor ideas for a springtime wedding are as plentiful as the season itself. Miniature tin pails can be given with wheatgrass cheekily peeking from the top. Give a packet of springtime bulbs ready to burst into life in a beautiful paper bag adorned with personalised ribbon. Or, simply place a card on each of the floral centrepieces letting your guests know that they are free to take home the flowers at the end of the reception as your gift to their home.
Give each of your guests a parasol to protect them from the spring sunshine. The colours available are exhaustive, so you can create a rainbow effect or simply choose one design so you have a flood of consistent colour to match your wedding theme. Springtime parasols can now be found adorned with silk blossoms such as gardenias and daisies. These incredible parasols are hand-made for your wedding and will be a keepsake forever more. You can find these at Pink Frosting's wedding parasol shop.

Food and beverages
An Australian springtime wedding menu must include lamb, macadamias and strawberries as they come into season. Try grilled polenta with goat's cheese, prawn cutlets with lime, seasonal vegetable stacks, rack of spring lamb, and fresh strawberries steeped in your favourite liquor with shortbread for dessert.
