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 one of Pantone's Color of the Year selections – 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!

1. Bridal Bouquet

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.
