Spring Weddings Lake District
There are many ways you can create a beautiful spring wedding in the Lakes – from décor to clothing, there are lots of little touches that can make your day extra special. Here are some great ideas to enhance your Springtime Wedding at Broadoaks.
Pastel Colours – Pastel colours are timeless for a spring wedding. Soft blues, greens, pinks, and yellows look great, and you can tie the colour scheme together using your décor, bridesmaid dresses, invitations, and flowers. Try looking on Pinterest for ‘spring wedding colour schemes’ – you should get a good range of palettes to choose from.
Delicate Details – Springtime is great for some small, delicate details. In terms of bridalwear, sheer fabrics with embroidery, delicate pearl earrings, and soft, flowing fabrics will look beautiful for a spring wedding day.
Local Flowers and Greenery – When it comes to flowers and greenery in spring, you can’t have too much! For a personalised touch (and a more sustainable option), go for locally grown spring flowers. Sweet peas, peonies, or tulips are great choices, and the more greenery, the better. You can even use the greenery as your décor – have it trailing around your centrepieces or wrapped around banisters and pillars.
Floral Prints – Continuing the flower theme, why not go floral for bridesmaid dresses? There are so many beautiful floral prints out there – you could even mix and match, giving each bridesmaid a unique dress, but with matching hair, shoes, and flowers. Floral dresses are great for bridesmaids, as they can use them again afterwards!
Sustainable Favours – Spring weddings suit sustainable favours, so try giving your guests packets of seeds or seed tape as their favours to remind them of your special day. You could also highlight local produce – jars of local honey or jam make great favours and will help to boost local businesses.
Soft Makeup – When it comes to make-up for spring weddings, think soft and delicate. Dewy, glowing skin will look beautiful in the spring sunlight – check out YouTube for some ideas on spring wedding looks.
Outdoor Touches – If you’re getting married in the Lakes, you want to make the most of the beautiful scenery, especially the gorgeous grounds at Broadoaks Country House. Decorate the outdoors with lanterns, strings of fairy lights, watering cans with flowers, even strings of photographs of you and your loved ones – the experienced team at Broadoaks can help you arrange any and all of the little details you want to make your day unique to you.
Spring Wedding Cake – What about the cake? You can bring the floral theme in here, too. Go for a high-tiered cake decorated with edible flowers or consider a cake with painted watercolour flowers – there are some incredible bakers out there who can create a beautiful (and delicious) centrepiece for your wedding reception. Consider interesting flavours too, like lemon or elderflower – these make for light, beautiful sponge cakes perfectly suited for springtime.
