Don't Listen to the Groundhog
Heather Hughes Photography, Vivid Expressions LLC
What does that groundhog know? So he says we're going to have 6 more weeks of winter, but we are determined to will with all our might for spring to be here. We're ready for all things flowers, warm weather, and WEDDINGS! While winter has been full of beautiful weddings, spring is when the wedding season really ramps up so we're very excited and anxious to say "adios", "arrivederci", and "au revoir" to winter.

Celebrating the Colors of Spring
Sami Roy Photography
Some may only think of bright colors when they imagine spring- like the beautiful flowers blooming all over. But we also love the soft colors of pastels. Think Easter colors! Sage green, pale yellow, robin's egg blue are all gorgeous colors to plan your spring wedding around. Pair your pastels with airy fabrics and beautiful florals. We love the idea of draping gorgeous fabric on chairs that match your linen napkins. A table runner with a flower petal texture is enough to make a statement, without going over the top. Add touches of gold for a classic and timeless look.

Here are some of our favorite rental companies where you can get lovely fabrics and the florists who can help you find the perfect spring flowers.

The Flavors of Spring
The Cake House
We love when couples choose lovely spring flavors in their wedding cake. There is so much more than just vanilla and chocolate. Some of the flavors we love most are citrus inspired! Or wow your guests with a floral inspired flavor like elderberry or rose. Some of our favorite bakeries in Hampton Roads are incredibly talented and can come up with delicious recipes for your wedding cake.

Spring Showers Bring Spring Flowers

One of the best tips for choosing wedding flowers is to pick flowers that are seasonal- that are more readily available in spring. If they're easier for a florist to find, they'll be less expensive. The good news is there are SOOOO many gorgeous flowers that are abundant in spring like daisies, peonies and wildflowers. Here is some inspiration for your spring bouquet, including the amazing flowers that could be perfect for your wedding: Spring Wedding Bouquets
