Whether you fancy being a summer bride or going for winter nuptials, you will undoubtedly be looking for a theme that matches the season. With so many ideas floating around the internet and in magazines, it can be difficult to decide on what is truly the right theme for you and your big day. To make things a little clearer and spark inspiration, this article takes you through possible ideas that tie in with each season so you can narrow your search.
A spring wedding lends itself perfectly to beautiful pastel colours and elegant cream designs. If your wedding date falls around Easter, the cake and favours can be created with this theme in mind; consider putting together mini egg favours and why not go all out with an Easter themed cake? Spring is a beautiful time of year, so choose a venue that boasts outside space complete with blossom trees and tulips sprouting up as it will be a great setting for photographs.
The most popular season for weddings, summer is a great time for those who love splashes of vibrant colour. Whilst the weather cannot be depended on at any time of year in the UK, the array of brightly coloured flowers available will go a long way in creating a summer vibe even if the sun isn’t shining. When it comes to the cake, there are plenty of options to go for from dramatic floral designs to a simple white cake with your chosen colour ribbon to finish it off perfectly. Outside space is a must and somewhere with large grounds for guests to relax in the (hopefully) warm weather is a definite bonus.
As the leaves turn a variety of colours from burnt orange to warm yellows, there is the opportunity to do something really spectacular in terms of theme. Whilst a Halloween theme is perhaps not most peoples cup of tea, taking touches from the season such as creating lighting from hollowed out pumpkins could make for a very unusual and elegant centre piece. A chocolate cake covered in orange flowers will certainly make for a striking (and delicious) wedding cake and you could even use dried leaves to create unique place settings.
People often presume that winter weddings have to take on a Christmas theme, and whilst this can be a lovely idea it might not be to your taste just because you have chosen to get married during the colder months. As an alternative, there are some beautiful images online for those who have chosen to feature ice in dramatic fashion, from sculptures to full scale bars! If you are feeling a little festive, you can always add a nod to Christmas with some holly in your bouquet and by choosing a traditional venue for the reception that boasts a roaring fire. For the cake, intricately placed silver twigs and blue flowers will top off your winter theme perfectly.
Whatever season you decide on for your wedding, there is a beautiful and tasteful theme that will fit perfectly to create an unforgettable day for you and your guests.
