Though this particular spring has had a rough start, brides and grooms planning nuptials for the following spring will likely want their special day to reflect the beauty of new beginnings that the season brings. The scent of fragrant florals, birds chirping, and warmer weather sets the perfect tone for enjoying bridal bliss. Even if you'll be saying "I do" in the cooler months – or have had to reschedule your nuptials to the fall or winter – you can still create a springtime feel in any season by incorporating soft, pastel hues into your wedding décor. 

While brides are familiar with the ever-so-popular blush color scheme, lighter shades of other hues can provide a similar look that will complement your favorite shades. Muted hues of yellow, lavender, sage, pale blue, periwinkle, and blush, of course, can be woven into ceremony and reception décor effortlessly by way of florals, linens, signage, calligraphy, and more.
