Guest Blogger | Emmaline Bride | Décor in the Spring


Décor Ideas for your Spring Wedding by Emma Arendoski of Emmaline Bride, and author of the new book, The Inspired Wedding. 

If you’re planning a spring wedding, now is the perfect time to plan those custom, personalized details to make your décor more memorable. Today I’m sharing a few ideas from my new book, The Inspired Wedding for a spring wedding. Which of these ideas suits you best? 

Custom Cake Toppers
If you’re choosing cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake, be sure to add a personalized decoration, like these ‘love is sweet’ cupcake toppers spotted over at PNZ Designs. It’s a simple yet memorable detail guests will love. For a spring wedding, choose colorful wrappers and place the cupcakes on a display that will coordinate with your décor.

Plants as Favors (and Escort Cards)
Once the cold weather is gone (finally!) we can start planning around all things green again, like these plants which serve dual-­‐purpose as a wedding favor and escort card. Place potted plants at a centrally located area near the entrance and tag each one with a guest’s name and their table number. They can use them find their seat and take it home with them!

Bouquets with Lush Greenery, Succulents
I’m looking forward to seeing lush green bouquets this spring, back in season again after a long winter. I especially love the bouquets that incorporate succulents (my favorite!).

Seating Chart Window
For an outdoor wedding, hanging décor is a popular choice when tree branches, fence posts, or lengths of rope or wire strung between structures are available. If the décor also doubles as a seating chart, then you’ve got a winner. These windowpanes have lots of character and are eye-­‐catching. Guest names
are written on them using markers so guests can find their table numbers and seats. It’s a fun alternative to a traditional wedding seating chart, especially if you’re thinking of a rustic theme.


Simple, Fragrant Décor 

One of the prettiest ways to dress up your tables for a spring wedding is with flowers — but not just any flowers. Simple, pure white blooms are in, especially if accompanied by an accent of green leaves. Use clear glass vases and just a few bunches of white hydrangea for each vase. If you like, add votive candles around the vases for an illuminated, romantic glow at night.

ILLUSTRATED LOVE COLLECTION | ARTIST COLLABORATION

We are excited to introduce our new line of illustrated portrait cufflinks and mix & match portrait cufflinks. These cufflinks all start with a pencil and paper. Our design intern, Lauren, creates sketches and concepts for each unique face. After that comes the inking and coloring process- all of the inking is done traditionally, and then scanned in and colored digitally- allowing for the different color options for each cute face! After that, they follow our regular process for being made into cufflinks.



What a sweet way to incorporate the happy couple! Take a look at all the different possibilities, and stay tuned for personalization options later! These are a perfect personal and handmade addition to any wedding.


If you are interested in other illustrated options from Lauren, check out her blog or e-mail her at laurenrassenfoss@gmail.com
