Creating a Dreamy Spring Pastel Wedding on a Budget
When spring pastel wedding styling is mentioned the first thing that pops into your head is probably going to flowers.I know, florals for spring? Groundbreaking.
But sometimes the obvious is the perfect choice and spring is full of so many gorgeous pastel toned flowers that will help you create the perfect wedding styling.
You’ll be thinking of wild arrangements of poppies, roses, larkspur, feverfew and stock in soft pastels of pinks, yellows and perhaps even some blues.
Unfortunately, your flowers aren’t cheap and it can feel like the spring pastel florals of your dreams are just not possible for your budget.
BUT we’re here to tell you spring pastel florals are more than possible, even when on a budget! When you are strategic with flowers you can get them to stretch quite far.
Here’s How You Can Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Flowers.
Reuse Your Wedding Flowers:
Firstly, did you know that you can reuse your wedding flowers. Bridal bouquets can decorate the bridal table, gift table and bar. Your arbour flowers can be moved inside for a photo backdrop or as a bridal table backdrop.
Small Flowers can Have a Big Impact.
Big arrangements of flowers are gorgeous and we love them! However, small vases of flowers can sometimes have a bigger impact on your room than big arrangements.
For this shoot we really wanted to do big arraignments, but only had the budget for one per table. So we filled the rest of the tables with small bud vases with only a couple of stems of flowers each. These little vases were perfect for creating that spring feel!
Keep Your Linens Simple
One of the first decisions we make when creating a styling is the linens. The linens have a big impact on your space and can really help you narrow down your options for the rest of your styling.
Your linens don’t have to be complicated, you don’t need to layer your tables with multiple lots of linens.
For this dream spring pastel wedding styling, we decided to use Chestnut & Fleece‘s gorgeous linen blend napkins in the colour “Sandstone” and to use white table cloths. We wanted this styling to feel simple and fresh and for the flowers to be the main focus. Instead of folding, we knotted the napkins to add texture and height to the tables and make the room feel more playful.
We love that these linen choices allowed the flowers to pop and be the main event on the table.
Hire Instead of Buy
Save yourself both time and money with this one! Hire your styling items such as signage, napkins and candle holders instead of buying them. I know it may seem cheaper to buy because you can re-sell, however, re-selling can take a long time and you are very unlikely to get back as much as you wanted. It can be frustrating to store all your styling items in the lead up to the wedding and after it. You can waste precious hours finding the exact right candle holders from the cheapest seller with the best shipping rates.
Hiring is such an easy alternative and can save you more headaches than you’d expect.
At Tailrace, we have a whole range of hire items you can choose from. Get in touch with our team to learn more.
