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
