Spring wedding colors evoke new buds, fresh greenery, and pastel landscapes. While there is much to love about spring — like increased sunshine and sweet-scented florals — we especially look forward to the beginning of the wedding season.
Spring weddings, in particular, suggest new and romantic beginnings. As the Earth awakens from its long winter slumber, our hearts yearn to reconnect with loved ones and celebrate.
At spring weddings, you can expect to see plenty of ethereal drapery, delicate greenery, and graceful floral arrangements. You’re also bound to admire a stunning spring wedding color palette.
What Are Good Colors for a Spring Wedding?
Good question. While the other three seasons boast more vibrant and dramatic colors, wedding colors for spring tend to be light, airy, and delicate. Think of whimsical pastels, soft hues, and perfectly-pale tones.
We’ve searched through thousands of weddings on PartySlate to find our six favorite spring wedding colors for a dreamy and romantic wedding celebration.
Imagine airy tenting with cascades of cornflower blue drapery. Or picture a wedding aisle laden with lavender-hued blooms like lilac or wisteria.
Of course, that’s just the beginning. Keep reading to discover how wedding colors can set the stage for spring nuptials. You’ll find daisy-laden tablescapes, pale-green seating arrangements, dusty-rose centerpieces, and so much more.

Of course, we’re not the only ones in love with cornflower blue. Renowned Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer also favored this dreamy color. Artists, after all, knows a good color when they see one.
