5 Things We Love for Spring Weddings

Can you hear the birds chirping? Can you see the buds blooming? Maybe not quite yet in Utah, but Sunday marked the first day of Spring (gray skies and cold temps be damned). Hooray!

With a new season, comes a new crop of bridal styles and wedding trends to obsess over. Here are the five latest finds that have us in a tizzy this spring.

Dotted Net Dresses – There’s something so charming, feminine and innocent about a dotted net dress. Designers seemed to be fawning over the fabric at Bridal Fashion Week last fall, as a number of sweetly dotteded designs cropped up on the runways.

Coral Anything – Coral is the current color du jour–just ask the pros at Pantone, who declared coral a hot color for spring. Expect to see the shade everywhere this season. To incorporate coral into your wedding, dress your bridesmaids in coral frocks or pretty up your pout with a coral lipstick.

Cascade Bouquets – We’re thrilled to see this classic bouquet style taking shape again. The newest versions look modern thanks to a heavy helping of sculptural blooms like orchids and fewer fillers and frills.

Mini Tarts – We still love macarons and cupcakes as much as the next gal, but mini tarts are a fresh alternative for dessert bars or as cake alternatives at weddings this spring. Mixed fruit, lemon meringue and cocount cream tarts are a few of our faves.


Bow Ties – Let’s not forget the boys–what’s more spring-y than a preppy bow tie? Grooms, it’s time to give the tie a rest. We’re digging bow ties in polka dots and stripes for grooms, groomsmen and ring bearers this season.

What are you favorite spring wedding trends? Are you swooning over dotted net dresses and bow ties, too? Crazy about coral and cascade bouquets? Craving mini tarts? Tell us what you’re loving this season!
