Spring Wedding Fashion for the Bride and Groom

Who doesn’t love a spring wedding? Not only is it one of the loveliest times of the year, with new life blossoming all around, it’s also an appropriate time to celebrate a new marriage. Of course, if you’re planning a spring wedding as a bride or groom, you’ll want to explore some spring wedding fashion. There are many ways you can bring a sense of seasonality to your attire. Milder temperatures also mean that almost all fabrics, silhouettes, and styles are appropriate. Here are a few of the best ways to spring into style with spring wedding fashion for brides and grooms.

Spring Wedding Fashion for Brides

Floral prints and motifs. Florals for spring may not be a surprising choice, but they’re ever-appropriate. Floral motifs are on-trend with top bridal designers and they’re ideal for a spring garden wedding!

Pastel shades. Why not draw inspiration from all those beautiful spring blooms and choose a gown in a soft pastel shade? Blush is always popular with color-loving brides, but lilac and lavender are very of-the-moment. Soft mint, lemon, blue, or gray are other romantic options.

Puff sleeves. The in-between weather of spring makes light sleeves a good option. Puff sleeves are all over the runways at the moment and they look as light and whimsical as the season demands!

Mini wedding dresses. Now that the sun’s out, it’s time to show off your pins! A short or high-low wedding dress is a fun, fashion-forward option that also gives you lots of room to breathe – and dance the night away!

Bridal separates. In-between weather calls for layers and the same principle applies to your wedding attire. Fortunately, bridal designers have turned separates into an art form, with gorgeous, convertible looks for any kind of bride.

Spring Wedding Fashion for Grooms

Lightweight fabrics. The most important consideration for spring grooms is the weight of their suit. With milder temperatures at this time of year, lightweight fabrics like linen or cotton are the best fit.

Soft shades. A groom’s suit definitely doesn’t have to be black! Muted shades are great for spring. Cream, light gray, taupe, khaki and pastel shades all work well.

Cool blue. Blue is a great color for any groom. For a formal wedding, you can go for a classic navy, but light blues are appropriate for spring as well. A light blue linen suit is a classic and comfortable look for a spring groom that won’t go out of style.

Pops of color. Although muted tones are a winner in spring, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the brighter colors of the season! Choose a bright and beautiful bouquet, a pocket square or tie in a sunny shade, or a bold waistcoat.

Floral prints. Floral isn’t just for the ladies! In fact, there are lots of great ways to introduce a floral print into spring groom’s attire. Keep it simple with a tie, bow tie, or other small accessory, wear a floral print shirt with an open collar for a beachy vibe, or go all out with a floral print suit. No matter how daring or conservative you are with fashion, you can make this look yours.

The most important thing, of course, is that you feel completely comfortable and confident in your wedding outfit. And don’t forget accessories! Nothing says ‘spring’ better than a halo of flowers or a fresh floral boutonniere!
