Seasonal Wedding Themes and Bridal Shower Themes
Traditionally spring is associated with the beginning of new life. Flowers bloom, and the earth awakens from its winter sleep. A beautiful spring wedding might be outdoors, in a garden, with an abundance of fresh flowers. Use light, pastel colors in the décor for a clean, radiant look. Place a bud vase with a single blossom at each place setting echoing the flowers in the bridal bouquet. These can be taken home by the guests as favors. Anything found in nature can be a good addition to a springtime reception. For place card holders, use dainty butterflies or dragonflies. Or really inspire the spirit of spring and give your guests flower seeds to plant their own flower gardens. Our custom designer cookies are a great choice. The spring collection includes butterfly cookies, daisy cookies and beautiful tulip cookies.
Summer weddings should be bright and vibrant, celebrating light. Keep guests cool by serving lemonade and fresh fruits. Give hand fans or parasols as favors, and they will surely appreciate your thoughtfulness. For a festive look, decorate outdoors with paper lanterns in an array of colors. A warm, summery location can be the inspiration for your theme. Beach weddings are highly popular in the summer. For a more idyllic atmosphere, create a simple look with white linens. Invite guests to toss fresh flower petals instead of confetti. Offer the petals in a natural mini woven favor bags.
The vivid colors of autumn should definitely play a role in your fall wedding. Hues of red, yellow, orange and brown echo the changing leaves, and can be incorporated in the table decorations, wedding favors, centerpieces, flowers and invitations. As with any seasonal theme, the key is to use what nature gives us. Scatter turned leaves and acorns on tables. For candlelight, carve floral patterns into small pumpkins and place tea lights inside. Or use a tea light holder with a fall motif, like the twig votives. Some fall wedding favor ideas include handmade green tea soaps with a beautiful gingko leaf charm, floral card holders and candy filled glass favor jars.
Winter weddings may or may not be tied in to the holidays. But having a wedding in winter means you can take advantage of that holiday feeling that is inevitably in the air. Winter flora can make beautiful accents. Poinsettia, holly, pinecones can all look great in centerpieces, bouquets, and as trimming. Or create a white Christmas look with all white flowers, snowflakes, and a white chocolate cake. Send guests home with a hanging picture frame ornament for the tree, which will stay with them, along with the memories year after year. Beautifully decorated snowflake and Christmas tree cookies also make wonderful parting gifts for your guests.
