Planning an Easter wedding in 2024/25

Although weddings are special regardless of the season, there’s a certain charm associated with exchanging your vows in the spring. With the weather starting to improve and flowers starting to bloom, the backdrop for your big day is truly breathtaking.

Once you’ve celebrated your engagement and become familiar with the stunning engagement ring on your finger, it’s time to start preparing for the big day. However, with lots to think about already when organising a wedding, couples can easily forget what to take into account when there’s a theme involved. 

That’s where we come in. Here are some of our top tips to help you plan the Easter wedding of your dreams.

Choosing a theme

While your wedding doesn’t necessarily need to be Easter themed, ensuring that your colours and decorations match with the season can be beneficial. Opt for more subtle colours for your ceremony, such as pastel shades of pink, lavender, and duck-egg blue.

Following this, coordinate your table decorations with the spring hues you’ve chosen. To complement the Easter theme, you could produce various colourful Easter eggs and use them to indicate table numbers. You could even include small chocolate rabbits for guests once they sit down.

Deciding on a venue

If a rustic spring wedding is at the forefront of your mind, how about having the wedding outside? Yes, the weather can be unpredictable but you can easily account for this with some overhead protection.

By decorating a woodland area with fairy lights, a large tent, floral logs, and animal-themed decorations, you transform a standard outdoor wedding into something unique and magical.

If an indoor wedding is more your thing, a converted barn will do the trick. The cosiness and rural nature of these venues are why they have remained a strong favourite among happy couples. Not to mention they are grand in size and have huge open windows, allowing for natural light to flow in with ease – perfect for those photo opportunities.

Picking your flowers

Since flowers typically bloom come April, it’s the perfect time to create some eye-catching floral displays

One of the most timeless flower types is the lily of the valley. A staple among weddings, these delicate cupped flowers are distinguished by flat leaves that prevent them from feeling overly precious. As they are white in colour, they also work well in bouquets against traditional wedding dresses.

Whether it’s green and white parrot tulips, fringed tulips, or Darwin hybrid tulips, these striking blooms are fit to complement any wedding. There are colours and shapes to suit all preferences and are versatile enough to be used in a variety of designs.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure about your flower choices right away. With so many options, it can feel overwhelming. Choosing your colour scheme can help, but you can also get plenty of help from florists. Florists like Belle & Blossom will provide you with professional advice to make your selection a little easier. They’ll tell you about which flowers go well together, how to make the most of your budget, and even how you can preserve some flowers if you want to keep some mementoes.

Providing entertainment for guests

With Easter being a very fun and playful time of year, you should ensure there are plenty of activities to keep guests entertained, particularly the little ones.  Consider organising an Easter egg hunt to keep the kids occupied. It’s also a great way of making use of your beautiful wedding venue and the surrounding countryside.

You may also decide to have live music playing throughout the ceremony and in the evening. Picture this: guests dancing together, having a good time, sparkling lights hung above – it sounds like the perfect day doesn’t it?
