Springtime is a special time for brides. Whether you're spending the season planning your wedding or your nuptials are taking place in the spring months, the scent of fragrant florals and warmer weather sets the perfect tone for enjoying bridal bliss. No matter when you'll be saying "I do," you can create a springtime feel in any season by incorporating pastel hues into wedding décor.

While brides are familiar with the ever so popular blush color scheme, lighter shades of other hues can provide a similar soft look that also complements your favorite shades. Take inspiration from the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year – a blend of Serenity, a pastel purple, and Rose Quartz, a light pink – to influence muted hues into ceremony and reception décor. Consider additional pastel shades of blues, lavenders, greens, yellows, and oranges to fit your desired theme.

Take a look at 15 ways to incorporate pastel colors into your wedding décor, below! Click on each photo to see more inspiring images from these real weddings!

We love traditional white bridal bouquets, but adding a touch of pastel pink is absolutely lovely. Choose flowers that are also used in ceremony décor – like the flower wall at this wedding – to create a cohesive look. Photo by KT Merry Photography

2. Wedding Dress

The ultimate pastel wedding choice would be to choose a bridal gown in a soft shade of pink or lavender. Blush bridal gowns have increased in popularity in recent years, and are a wonderful option for the bride who wishes to stand out. Photo by Studio EMP

3. Bridesmaid Bouquet

Bridesmaid bouquets are generally smaller than the bride's arrangement and feature similar colors and florals. Incorporate pastel pinks and muted greenery to offset a darker gown and truly make the flowers pop! Photo by Caroline Tran

4. Boutonnieres
