With people around the world celebrating Passover and Easter, it’s clear that spring is in the air. Improving weather and the blossoming of flowers is sure to have people – at least those who do not suffer from allergies – in good spirits. If you’re planning a spring wedding for next year, or you just want to embrace the aesthetic of the season at any time of year, why not select a pastel color scheme? The soft hues offer more variance and personality than a neutral palette, while still being a subtler choice for those who might not desire décor in a bolder shade. A lighter tone in any color instantly adds a romantic femininity that is perfect for your nuptials, as well as reflecting the fresh feeling that spring evokes. 

As with any other wedding color scheme, there are many different ways you can incorporate pastels on your big day. From attire, to florals, to stationery, and even to dinnerware, there are endless options for including these pretty colors in your nuptials. Take a look at some ideas below from real weddings!
