Planning to say “I Do” on Easter and looking for some wedding ideas and inspiration? Begin with appropriate color scheme. As Easter conjures up a vision of pretty pastels, think shades like baby pink, light blue, yellow, and more. These shades always look fantastic against white whether you choose one or a blend of all.

Follow it up with matching decorations. While the obvious Easter flower has to be Daffodil as it is in abundance at this time of year, you can also opt for other popular spring flowers such as Tulips, Hydrangeas, and Lilies. If you like that rustic look, create flower arrangements in vintage jam jars or milk jugs. Alternatively, if you want to keep it simple, consider an Easter egg basket. You can either use real or faux eggs.

Next, make sure to reflect your wedding theme in your bridal wear too. Instead of the traditional white dress, consider the lovely pastel shades. Due to the moderate weather, you can easily get away with a short tea length dress or a long flowing gown.

Another important aspect of wedding planning is of course the invitations. But, you don’t have to necessarily go with printed bunnies and eggs in order to give a nod to your Easter theme. Instead, opt for fresh and colorful spring inspired invitations.

If you are expecting young guests at your wedding, arrange for an Easter egg hunt challenge to keep them entertained.

Finish off the celebration with a decadent strawberry velvet cake. Or let your color scheme run through the cake to live by your theme. Alternatively, a traditional white cake decorated with seasonal flowers, bird nest and eggs will yell Easter. In terms of flavors, ginger, lemon, raspberry, strawberry, and other fruity choice are perfect for a spring wedding.

Lastly, don’t forget to thank your guests for their attendance. Give them favors that complement your Easter wedding theme. Egg shaped cookies or chocolates usually make for great Easter inspired favors.
