Pantone just released 10 colors for spring 2016 few days ago and those are just perfect for spring weddings as well. As one of the most important events in our lives, our weddings surely deserve second consideration on every part, especially the wedding color schemes. “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves”, said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. This spring we’ll see some breathtaking wedding color ideas with these colors. Check out the following trending wedding color palettes in spring 2016.
top 10 wedding color ideas for spring 2016 trends
Pink is a classic color used in wedding decorations and the first trending wedding color in 2016 is Rose Quartz, which is a shade of pink color. “The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure”, by Pantone.

“While the majority of the Spring/Summer palette trends toward calmness, a few diversions from the theme emerge that offer a contrast. With Buttercup designers reveal a shining beacon transporting its wearer to a happier, sunnier place”, said by Pantone. I added some purple to make them a perfect match.

DIY Romantic Wedding

Of course your nuptials will be romantic for you and your partner no matter what, a stolen moment alone after dinner, your time with the photographer, and of course that whole ‘getting married’ part!
But how do you take your guests along for the ride, and let them feel as wrapped up in your wedding as you?
Check out our tips for upping the romance factor on your wedding day, and creating the kind of ambiance your guests will never forget…

1. All The Lights

Lighting is perhaps the one element that can transform the feel of your wedding instantly.
Whether you have a budget for lighting production, you speak to your venue about what they can offer or you simply reuse your fairy lights from Christmas, carefully considering how to best light your space, will work wonders on romancing your guests.

2. Valentine Vows

How To Have The Most Romantic Wedding Ever | Bridal Musings Wedding Blog 3
Your wedding ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the day, and is one of the parts where you can really guide the atmosphere.
Opting for really romantic ceremony readings, personal vows, and unique ideas like a family blessing of the rings, a hand-tying ceremony, planting a tree or lighting a unity candle, all add to the loving vibes. And get your guests involved from the start.

3. Scentscape Your Day

How To Have The Most Romantic Wedding Ever | Bridal Musings Wedding Blog 5
Scentscaping (yes, it’s a thing!) is a huge buzzword in luxury weddings, but can also be adapted on a budget for any big day. Smell is perhaps the most powerful sense for evoking emotion, but it’s often overlooked for weddings (understandably) in favour of food, music, and the look of the day.
Companies like Gemma Hopkins’, Design In Scent can create a gorgeous bespoke scent that will become the fragrance backdrop to your day. For a DIY version, think verbena candles, lavender centrepieces or freesia bouquets. A wedding that smells as good as it looks is steeped in romance!

4. Ambient Music

Of course at some point your guests are going to want to hit the dancefloor and Shake It Off to Taylor Swift. But before that, your wedding music can go a long way to setting the feel for your day.
Choose personal, un-cliched songs, with a dreamy feel for your ceremony, cocktail hour, over dinner, and for your first dance. You can even include some slow sets throughout the evening for the couples! (Check out our Valentine’s playlist for inspiration!)

5. A Romantic Feast

Your choice of food and how you serve it can be a big help in creating a romantic atmosphere at your wedding. We’re not saying you need to woo your guests with oysters and dark chocolate – though I’m sure they wouldn’t mind!
Avoid buffets, BBQs, sliders or street food, instead try elegant shared table dishes to get conversation flowing and guests dining in a more intimate fashion.

6. Love Seats

As with the catering, planning your tables to create an intimate, chatty atmosphere will absolutely amp up the romance at your wedding.
There’s something really special about long dining tables, that creates a closer, familiar feel over the more formal round variety or top table set-up. Choosing a sweetheart table will also give you and your other have a chance to have your own romantic dinner for two at your wedding.

7. A Wow Venue

Choose a romantic wedding venue, and all the hard work is done for you!
A medieval castle, a beautiful glasshouse, a pretty garden, or an atmospheric old church; take a stunning venue, add some candles (see below) and et voila, you’ve got yourself a seriously romantic setting.

8. A Touch of Whimsy

How To Make Your Wedding Super Romantic | Bridal Musings Wedding Blog
Sometimes your guests might feel more like they’re witnessing your romance than feeling it for themselves. But adding an element that’s fun and sweet, will soon get them involved in your day.
We love the idea of this balloon march from one venue to the next, (with a release at the end!), you could also have a waltz lesson, an open mic for toasts or some fun games to bring your guests together and feeling the love.

9. Copious Candles

Candles work magic in any room, even more so at a wedding. This is perhaps the most affordable way to add instant romance to your soiree.
Tealights can add the ambiance, and pillar candles in hurricanes or lanterns will look really stylish, but for full on romance, it has to be tall candelabras for a dramatic, gothic, feel.

Fireworks or Lanterns

Did you feel fireworks in your belly when you first met your other half? Why not share that feeling with your guests?
Launching sky lanterns, putting on a fireworks display, or having a sparkler sendoff adds serious sparkle to your wedding and ensures you finish your night on the most romantic note possible.
