The Freshest Spring Wedding Invitations
Planning a spring wedding? First and foremost, congratulations! It's one of the most popular times of year to tie the knot, thanks to the warmer temperatures and blooming accents all around. With that in mind, you'll definitely want to showcase the season from the very start, and what better way to do so than with your wedding invitations?
To really set the tone for your springtime fête, you can turn to nature for inspiration. The budding blossoms, chirping birds, and weather are all great muses, so go ahead and incorporate related motifs that really speak to March, April, May, or June. Illustrations, patterns, and other options provide you with the tools to do so. You can also look to the colors of the season. Pastels are especially common for spring celebrations, but they aren't the only option. Verdant greens reflect the growing plants, and deep blues and cheery yellows nod to the temperamental (rainy, then sunny, then rainy again) forecast. Again, you can also pull from the numerous flowers, which come in a wide range of hues.
