Easter Wedding Theme

Springtime is a very popular time of year for weddings. If you're getting married in the spring, you may want to consider an Easter theme for your wedding.

Location: If you live in a warm climate, consider having your wedding outdoors. If not, any traditional indoor location like a church will also work nicely. The most important thing is to decorate the location you choose in such a way that reflects the Easter holiday and the springtime season.

Invitations: Invitations should reflect the symbols of Easter. Think Easter eggs, blooming flowers and baby chicks. Colors should be pastel and reflect your wedding colors. Be sure to specify to your guests whether or not your wedding will be held indoors or outdoors, and always request an RSVP.

Decorations: Decorations should reflect not only the Easter holiday but the springtime season as well. Try filling pretty crystal or glass bowls with faux colored eggs. For your color scheme, try colors like grass green paired with pastel shades of yellow, pink and purple. Flowers are important for the Easter wedding theme. Go for springtime favorites like lilies, daisies, hyacinth, tulips, daffodil and iris. Decorate church aisles or seating rows with swags of tulle gathered in the center and adorned with flowers or ribbon. Streamers and balloons in your chosen wedding colors are also a must for a festive environment.

Apparel: The ballerina style gown is perfect for an Easter wedding theme. This type of gown features a fitted bodice paired with a full tulle skirt. Pastel colored pearls are a perfect accompaniment. For the bridesmaids, choose dresses in light, floaty fabrics and soft colors. The groom may want to choose a tuxedo or suit in a light color as well. Beige, taupe, sage green and powder blue are all options.

Menu: For the main course, go with either lamb or ham. Try side dishes like baby carrots, steamed asparagus, creamed spinach, cornbread and scalloped potatoes. Dessert can include spring fruits like berries, rhubarb and peach. For the wedding cake, try lemon, angel food or carrot. Adorn your cake with miniature Easter eggs made from chocolate or edible spring flowers. Beverage choices can include sparkling champagne, sherbert punch, and ginger ale.

Favors: Chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs make perfect wedding favors for an Easter theme wedding. You could also hand out packets of flower seeds or miniature bird houses. Tulle wrapped bundles of birdseed are also fun wedding favors. Guests can invoke the old tradition of throwing rice, and the local birds will get a treat!
