    Floral Centerpiece Ideas for Spring

    spring wedding centerpiece idea

    Spring is (almost) officially here, which means Spring wedding season is upon us.  If you are still finalizing your florals or planning a wedding for next Spring, I’m sharing some pretty centerpiece ideas for your Spring wedding.

    {Vibrant Peaches & Pinks}

    What says ‘Spring’ more than brightl colors?  The incorporation of peonies and peaches in your centerpieces are perfect for your Spring wedding.  The sherbert colors are fresh, warm, and fun.

    {Yellow & Green}

    Don’t daffodils just announce spring when they start popping up?  When I was a little girl, my favorite thing about spring was when our hillside turned yellow with daffodils and I would pick bouquets everyday.  This mix of daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, and ranuculus make the perfect spring table.

    {Pretty White Tulips}

    The flower that most symbolizes Spring for me is the tulip.  Make them even lovelier by grouping a large group of white tulips together.  I also love large groupings of white hydrangea (another great bloom that shows up in Spring).

    {Soft Pastel Spring Florals}

    {Inspiration Board} Sparkle + Mink Winter Wedding

    {inspiration} for that winter wedding that’s not exactly a holiday wedding, not exactly a New Year’s wedding, but wants a little extra sparkle & pop

    {palette & details} winter white + silver sparkle, of course, but with pops of deep red in the bride’s lips and nails, and pops of red in the florals would be lovely.  I also love the idea of the bride wearing a vintage or faux fur mink wrap.

    don’t you think this is a chic, fun, and cozy winter wedding style?

    {Real Wedding} Anna & Bryan: Woodsy + Rustic Green DIY Wedding

    This wedding is so “Twilight Woodsy” I would have sworn it was in the Pacific Northwest instead of its actual Maine location. I love all of the mossy and rustic woodland details combined with the green color palette.  Lots of great details in this one my friends!

    Directly after the ceremony we did a sawing of a log. It is a German tradition and symbolizes that now as husband and wife the couple works on problems together and solves them together.

    As escort cards we sliced branches and my husband wood burned the table numbers on them. We included both the numbers and also the spelled out word in German. I hand wrote all the guests names on the other side of the wood slice.

    For us it was all the personal touches and DIY moments of our wedding that made our wedding US. Everyone knows I am a big knitter so it was important for me to include hand knitted elements into the wedding. Also the fact that I am German, Bryan is American and we were able to have German and American traditions, people, food and beverages come together in one big celebration.
    Don’t you love all of those green woodsy details!?  And the incorporation of the German tradition of sawing a log fit in perfectly with the style of the day and made it so personal.  Love that.
    {Vendors} Venue: backyard of the groom’s parents home in Ellsworth, ME / Caterer: Crocker House / Cake: Montes / Cake topper: Etsy seller RedLightStudio / tent: Wallace Tents / Photography: Ashley Therese Photography (the most amazing, friendly and talented wedding photographer there is :) / Music: Wavelength / Florals: centerpieces were DIY, bouquets and boutonnieres were from Ingrids in Bangor / Gown:  Oleg Cassini from David’s Bridal / Bridesmaids’ dresses: David’s Bridal / Bride’s wedding band and engagement ring: the diamond from my engagement ring was my mother-in-laws. It was a Christmas gift from my father in law quiet a few years back. She wore it a couple of time but kept getting caught in things and scratching things because it was on a higher setting. So she had put it in her jewelry box and left it there. When Bryan told his parents that he was planing on proposing to me she asked him if he would like to give me that ring. Later on we had it reset since it was to big for me and I like white gold better then yellow gold. Bryan and I designed a setting together and later on had a custom wedding band made to fit. All this work was done by Jewelry Design in Danbury, CT / Invitations: DIY / Favors: we had pint glasses with a logo, wedding date and thank you/Danke print from Favor Favor
