The end of the month will see many celebrate the Easter weekend, but some may be celebrating for different reasons. Have you ever thought of having an Easter wedding? If you are about to start the planning process for a 2017 ceremony, then perhaps this time of the year could be for you.

Standing out from the crowd and doing something a bit different might be for you, and a themed wedding could be the way to do so. The seasons of new beginnings, baby animals, blooming buds, and sunshine promise to set your day apart whilst remaining sophisticated, and these ideas may help you.

Colours

Think about mini eggs, they could be seen as the epitome of an Easter colour scheme. Beautiful sugary pastel shades of blue, green, yellow, pink and purple. And why stick to just one colour? Mix and match, with the addition of some polka dot or floral prints to reflect the spring season.

Flowers

Spring is the season for stunning flowers, particularly tulips and daffodils. But don’t forget the other gorgeous flowers in season, such as freesias, roses, snap dragons and sunflowers. All offering a variety of sizes, shapes and colour to help you create some striking floral designs.

Accessories and Styling

The natural, rustic style of an Easter wedding lends itself to a do-it-yourself approach. Consider little nests to fill with mini eggs for favours, to ‘love bird’ cake toppers, rustic jars and jugs to fill with your favourite flowers, and birdcage centre pieces.

Cake

If you wish to stick to Easter tradition, the Simnal cake – a light fruit cake covered in marzipan – offers a twist on the traditional wedding cake. If this isn’t to your taste, you can never go wrong with a chocolate cake, topped off with Easter eggs or beautiful pastel coloured flowers.
