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.

1. Cornflower Blue Makes Spring Wedding Colors Come True
Blue-hued flowers — like the ornamental cornflower — are few and far between. Lucky for us, we often find this gorgeous shade in spring wedding décor.
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.
Blues that Bloom
This dreamy spring wedding evoked bohemian style with ombré-blue bridal dresses and fresh bouquets of oxford blues and brunnera.
