No matter if you’re planning your dream wedding this spring or next, it’s never too early or late to incorporate unique spring wedding ideas that will make your day all your own.

We’re here to ensure that every detail of your spring wedding is just the way you envision, from the wedding catering to the timeline to the décor and music.

So without further ado, let’s dive into these unique spring wedding ideas!

  1. Hanging Floral Ceremony Backdrop

Getting married in a spring wedding couldn’t be more romantic! After all, this is the season for blossoming and starting a new phase of life. When you have your spring wedding at our botanical garden wedding venue, your ceremony will take place on our Gazebo Lawn. Many couples love to dress up the ceremony Gazebo by adding floral sprays or fabric draping. For a creative twist on ceremony décor, why not consider a hanging floral ceremony backdrop?

Strands of individual floral buds comprise this backdrop, creating a dainty and elegant background for your vows and first married kiss. We love this spring wedding idea because you can easily personalize the floral to match your wedding colors. The hanging flowers will also act as pops of color against the white Gazebo!

  1. Seasonal Spring Wedding Cocktails

Speaking of seasonal spring flavors, let’s talk about spring wedding cocktails! At our outdoor wedding venue, your cocktail hour can take place in the midst of our blooming botanical gardens. We have a built-in bar in this area, where the bartenders can serve your guests delightful libations, from lavender-infused lemonade to elderflower champagne spritzers.

For spring, keep the drinks light, both in flavor and color! Consider incorporating fruity or herb-inspired flavors to tie a botanical aspect into your bar menu. Especially when you have a fruit-infused drink, your drinks can even be brightly colored in shades of lilac, watermelon, and buttercup to emulate sunshine.

Sparkling or bubbly drinks work perfectly for a spring wedding, tantalizing your guests’ taste buds while also keeping them cool.

Don’t forget to garnish your drinks with edible flowers for an extra dash of springtime charm!

  1. Put a Twist on Bridesmaids’ Bouquets

Colorful florals and spring go together like you and your soon-to-be spouse: They’re meant to be! Switch things up at your spring wedding by having your bridesmaids carry springtime floral baskets instead of traditional bouquets. These can be woven baskets that are the size of a small purse and they can be filled with wildflowers that match your spring wedding colors.

This new trend is one that nobody will expect and give your wedding party a creative edge. These floral baskets also go well with bridesmaids’ dresses of any hue or texture, making them perfect for any spring wedding!

  1. Invite Furry Friends

We love surprise-and-delight moments at spring weddings! These are décor or entertainment elements at your wedding that guests won’t expect but will positively delight in. One example of a surprise-and-delight moment for your spring wedding is inviting wedding llamas!

When you think of a spring wedding, we bet that llamas are not the first thing that comes to mind, but these furry friends are guaranteed to bring smiles to guests’ faces. Trust us when we say people will hurry to snap a picture with these adorable creatures. Gentle and friendly, they can even be dressed up in their best wedding attire to suit the occasion.

  1. Take Advantage of the Outdoors

If you’re having a spring wedding, embrace nature! A botanical garden wedding, enchanted garden wedding, or garden party wedding are all beautiful spring wedding themes and aesthetics. During spring, you can take full advantage of the outdoors by having an outdoor wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

Here at Celebration Gardens, you’ll start off your wedding day getting all dolled up in our Getting Ready House, which conveniently leads right to the entrance of the Gazebo Lawn for the ceremony. There, our majestic, white Gazebo stands waiting for your personal touch, whether that means adding a hanging floral ceremony backdrop or any other décor that best suits your style.

After you tie the knot, your guests will make their way through the Intimate Pavilion and into our main botanical gardens for cocktail hour. They’ll enjoy the spring wedding cocktails you selected while munching on springtime hors d’ouevres. The flowers will be in full bloom, creating the perfect backdrop for photos and all the festivities of the day.

After you and your new spouse have captured photos throughout the butterfly gardens, you’ll kick off your spring wedding reception underneath the Grand Pavilion. This site is completely covered, but has open-air siding, so you and your loved ones can enjoy the fresh breeze and garden views all night long.

As the sun sets and the stars twinkle above, we’ll transition your wedding reception from the formalities into a garden dance party under the moonlit sky. The built-in market lighting will blink on, both inside the Pavilion and outside in the gardens, creating the perfect ambiance for the rest of the evening. Imagine dancing with your new spouse in the warm, romantic glow of the market lights. You’re surrounded by the fragrant blooms, gentle breezes of spring, and most importantly, all your loved ones.

How can it get any better than that?
