Here at 76th & Newbury, We adore everything about weddings! We love being able to let couples add their own special personal touches to their big day. Since weddings are so special to us, We have spent many hours, pinning, designing and making sure our design team is up to date with the latest trends and decor ideas for your wedding! Check out our favorite wedding ideas for Spring 2017!
Bright vibrant colors for your spring wedding set the tone for the day! As soon as your guests walk into your venue they will be delighted to see bright pastel colors and fun decor pieces! One of the great things about having your wedding in the spring is that everything is just in bloom and looking bright and sunny again from a long winter!
We love the trend of using little chalk signs to let your guests know what the table number and locations are! This first photograph is from a kids table and has the great idea of letting kids do a DIY craft to keep busy while waiting for food. What an awesome idea to keep the little ones entertained! https://www.buzzfeed.com/mikespohr/impossibly-fun-ways-to-entertain-kids-at-your-wedding?utm_term=.raYK5lyE0r#.skJqNAM12R
Many of your guests may have been married for a long time and could offer the new couple some great advice! Here at 76th & Newbury We created an easy DIY printable that gives the newlyweds tips for their new marriage! This makes a great activity for the adults to do during cocktail hour and will be a great keepsake for many years to come! https://76thandnewbury.com/products/diy-tips-for-the-newlyweds-instant-download
Another great decor item is this beautiful pastel table runner, with floral accents and muted wood. We love how they all flow together and how they tie in your spring wedding theme with bright colors and flowers! How beautiful is this table?! http://www.heartanddash.com/blog/2016/1/1/a-romantic-spring-wedding-at-terrain-stefanie-eric
Lastly, One of our personal favorite items (We swear we aren't biased :P!) is our custom wedding love guestbook! This guest book was hand drawn by one of our designers and makes such a special wedding statement piece! We love how romantic and bright it is. You can have your guests sign the leaves and leave you a message of love to look at for so many years to come! This makes such a bright, beautiful wedding decor piece for your spring wedding! https://76thandnewbury.com/collections/wedding-guest-books-guestbook-alternatives/products/unique-custom-wedding-tree-guestbook
One of our personal favorite things to dream about (and dream we do, since We are always looking for new wedding inspiration here!) are beautiful wedding dresses! If you are doing a spring wedding you are in luck because you have so many different options, where summer weddings might not because it will be very hot. You can go for a long sleeved dress or a classic sweetheart neckline. Here are a few of our favorite designs!
We love this first long sleeved style wedding dress! This dress is perfect for the bohemian-loving bride and also for weddings located where it's a little chilly or in the early spring since it features long sleeves! This dress will have you loving all things bohemian and searching for the perfect floral crown to go with it! http://www.bytezza.com/2015/08/celeste-andrew.html?m=1
The next dress we were crushing over is a classic A-line opens back lace dress! http://bellethemagazine.com/2015/12/stella-york-spring-2016.html/stella-york-spring-2016-wedding-dress-46 This dress is so beautiful and features a beautiful lace pattern. We love the look of this dress from the lace detailed front to the open back. This classic look will be in style for years to come.
How beautiful is this fit and flare dress by the designer Watters? This dress is so delicate and intricately made. This dress is perfect for the bride who wants a strapless dress and also a sweetheart neckline. This dress is so light and airy and will add to the spring feel of your wedding! We love the delicate Freesia Motif on the top of the dress which really pulls this romantic dress together. https://www.watters.com/wtoo/products/lapis
The last dress we are featuring is a romantic ball gown with a twist style! We love how light and airy this dress is but at the same time has the feeling of the classic ballgown style. This dress has a beautiful low back that again adds a nice twist on the classic gown. This dress is perfect to compliment your spring wedding! https://www.jlmcouture.com/Alvina-Valenta
Weddings are all about adding your own personal touches and favorites to your big day. While many people love traditional wedding cake, Here are a couple of truly inspired dessert alternative options for your wedding!
Pie is one of my favorite desserts to eat, If you're a pie lover also, you can incorporate it into your wedding day! These mini pies are so cute and tasty. Your guests will love these mini pies. They can pick from the classics like apple or you could go unique and make your own new flavor of pie using your personal favorite fruit! http://domino.com/wedding-cake-alternatives
The next tasty wedding cake alternative option is this adorable donut style cake! This donut "cake" would be perfect for early weddings and those who have a big sweet tooth! These donuts are so tasty and how great it this idea of putting little polaroids of each other as a cake topper alternative too! http://www.himisspuff.com/wedding-donuts-displays-ideas/3/
Naked cakes are a great way to have a cake but not in a traditional fondant design! The naked cake is a popular trendy design for 2017 weddings! You can add some flowers and cute cake toppers to make this naked cake custom made just for your style! This cake is perfect for weddings who still want to be traditional but want to add a little pizazz to their wedding day! We love how yummy this cake looks and you could have any kind of decor and it would go with this yummy cake! http://www.colincowieweddings.com/inspiration-and-details/10-totally-gorgeous-garden-wedding-ideas
Our last idea is french inspired and so yummy! Croquembouche is a French dessert consisting of choux pastry balls piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel. How tasty does that sound? We love how this pastry looks like a work of art and is so beautiful! This desert is commonly used at french weddings and will add a bit of culture to your wedding. http://www.lovemydress.net/blog/2017/02/delphine-manivet-rime-arodaky-elegant-simple-wedding-french-countryside.html
Beautiful flowers are a big inspiration in today's spring weddings, however, all of those flowers can get pretty pricey and sometimes you want a unique bouquet to show off your own personal style! Check out these unique and beautiful flower bouquet alternatives we found!
The first bouquet we found is made entirely of paper, how amazing is this? They look like real flowers but are intricately put together and are so much more cost effective than flowers! We love how they paired the bright colors with the soft muted greens for spring! https://liagriffith.com/diy-rustic-paper-bridal-bouquet/
The next arrangement We love is this custom floral and succulents design! Succulents are very in this season and make excellent decor! Your guests will love this unique take on a bouquet! You still can be traditional but with a twist with these succulents! http://www.firstcomeslovephoto.com/cecelia-brett-married-at-douglas-ranch-in-carmel-valley-ca/
This feather arrangement is so unique and beautiful! We love the deep purple colors and bits of green accents. You could use different kinds of feathers to accent your creation! This is a great option for a bride who wants to DIY a lot of her wedding day and make it really personalized. You can choose exactly what color feathers you want and really customize this unique bouquet just for your style. http://happywedd.com/wedding_theme/80-adorable-black-and-gold-wedding-ideas.html
Lastly, We picked out this beautiful full greenery bouquet! This bouquet is made up of ferns and we love how bright the green colors are against the white of the bride's dress. This would be a perfect bouquet option for those who still want to keep a pop of green color for their spring weddings but also want something different than the typical flower bouquet! This is also a cost-effective way to keep the bright luxurious look but save some money on a huge floral design! http://www.bespokecountryweddings.com.au/p/floristry.html
Spring weddings can be so unique and special when you incorporate your own personal style and decor ideas to them. Springtime is a great time to have a wedding because everything is bright, green and in bloom again! We love spring weddings and can't wait to show you more wedding ideas in our next blog!
