Ah, spring; is there a lovelier time of the year? Certainly not when it comes to weddings: the weather is perfect, countless beautiful blooms are in season, and lush greenery offers the ideal backdrop for photos. If you’re planning a spring wedding, congratulations, you couldn’t have chosen a more romantic time to tie the knot.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen some fun but ultimately wasteful trends come and go: welcome bags (we’ll let you in on a little secret: most people don’t care about them), huge and bold cakes (yes, everyone loves cake, most couples agree that this is one of the biggest wastes of money in the end), and matching bridesmaid dresses (after all, friends are not token accessories). That’s why wedding trends for 2024 are mostly about simplicity and elegance. Yes, we’ve come full circle.

But one trend that’s currently stealing the spotlight is the rise of rose-gold wedding rings. Forget the traditional gold or silver – it’s time to add a blush of romance to your rings. And since everyone is about embracing the beauty of nature, the abundance of flowers is another trend we see exploding in 2024. Below, we delve into the details and share more wedding trends to inspire your I-dos.

Rose Gold Rings

If you’re in the market for an engagement or wedding ring, consider rose gold because it’s the next piece of jewelry. This romantic metal has gained immense popularity, and for good reason. Rose gold complements literally all skin tones (when you think about it, whose skin tone doesn’t look better with some blush pink color next to it?) and exudes a warmth that sets it apart from traditional gold or silver bands.

Don’t get us wrong; gold and silver make for timeless options, but intricately crafted, perfect rose-gold engagement rings are currently stealing the spotlight. They’re also ideal for bohemian-style weddings, which, by the way, are making a big comeback. On top of this, rose gold pairs really well with other metals and stones.

Flowers, Flowers Everywhere

Spring is a time for blooming flowers, and what better way to celebrate the season than by decorating your wedding venue with an abundance of floral arrangements? From delicate pastel petals to bold and vibrant blooms, the choices are truly endless in spring. If you prefer a more eclectic vibe, mix seasonal flowers such as peonies, tulips, and cherry blossoms to create a unique and fragrant ambiance.

Table centerpieces? Decorate them with lush greenery and blossoms, and you’ll transform your reception into a garden-inspired paradise. And remember, next year’s trends are all about embracing nature and authenticity, so feel free to experiment with natural elements as much as you want to. 

Ditch the traditional white and embrace a palette bursting with colors – think vibrant pinks, soft blues, and sunshine yellows. And you don’t have to stop there: how about floral-infused cocktails or edible flowers adorning your wedding cake? Get creative and surprise your guests with unexpected bursts of floral delight.

Pastel Pallets

When it comes to trendy color schemes for a spring wedding, pastels reign supreme. While bold and vibrant colors can look fantastic in boho weddings, those looking for something more classic and understated should welcome soft hues like blush pink, mint green, and lavender. 

For a romantic, dreamy, and cohesive atmosphere, incorporate these gentle shades into your bridesmaids’ dresses (and let each bridesmaid wear a different dress!), floral arrangements, and even your wedding dress and cake (which, as we mentioned, shouldn’t be too large and loud if you want to follow the trends).

Mixing and matching pastel elements is a wonderful way to add a touch of playfulness to your celebration while maintaining an elegant and harmonious aesthetic. In addition to having pastel-colored dresses and floral arrangements, you could opt for pastel-colored invitations with floral motifs as a delightful prelude to your guests. The key is to strike a balance, creating a palette that reflects the season’s charm without overwhelming the senses.

Intimate Outdoor Affairs

Spring 2024 is witnessing the rise of micro weddings – small gatherings that pack a punch. It’s about quality over quantity, allowing you to spend meaningful moments with those who matter most. And what better way to celebrate your spring union than outside, amidst the beauty of nature?

If you’d love an outdoor wedding, consider hosting your ceremony surrounded by blooming gardens, towering trees, or even a picturesque lakeside backdrop. Outdoor venues like these provide a natural canvas for your wedding, allowing you to enhance the setting with minimal decor. As a bonus, your photos will look fantastic.

From sunrise or sunset ceremonies to exchanging vows beneath a canopy of blossoms, the possibilities are as endless as the beauty of the outdoors. Just be sure to have a backup plan in case Mother Nature decides to sprinkle a little unexpected magic on your special day!
