Easter wedding ideas – How to create the perfect Easter wedding theme

Easter is such a great time of year for a wedding. The days are getting longer, everyone is in the mood to celebrate and spring really is at its best. Seasonal wedding themes are always popular so let’s take our inspiration from this spring holiday and create the perfect Easter wedding.

The Perfect Palette For Your Easter Wedding

With such a great backdrop as a rustic wedding venue like Upwaltham Barns for your special day, you can choose a really wonderful colour palette. Nothing says an Easter wedding theme quite like pretty pastels so mix up pinks, blues, purples and greens for the best effect. Alternatively, you could opt for a classic combination such as yellow and green or pink and purple and use these with soft cream or ivory.

If you use a wide range of pastels, you’ll have so much choice with all the other details for your wedding. Let your bridesmaids wear dresses in their favourite pastel shade or provide coloured ties for the groomsmen. It’s the time of year when you can have some fun with your wedding theme!

Easter Wedding Decorations

The range of spring wedding flowers available for your Easter wedding is absolutely huge so you’ll be able to pick the very best for the season. Why not let your florist choose which varieties to include in your bouquets and arrangements? As long as they know the colour palette you’re working to, they can select the best value and highest quality blooms for you when they buy your flowers. This often means that your budget will go further which has to be a good thing! Of course, at Upwaltham, you’ll be surrounded by spring flowers when the 250 tulips in our courtyard burst into life so why not include tulips in your floral plans?

For a fabulous rustic look, spring flowers in pastel jars are always very special. You can also use hessian, string and lace to bring texture to your decorations and we’ve even seen place cards set in little nests made from twigs. There are so many brilliant Easter wedding ideas out there that the hardest thing is choosing which ones to include.

As well as beautiful spring flowers, there are also so many other decorations that are perfect for Easter weddings. How about a seating plan made from blossom-filled branches or one that’s set out on a ladder painted in pastel tones?

We also love Easter trees that are decorated with hand blown eggs. These make a wonderful welcome arrangement or seasonal centrepiece. You can also wrap pastel ribbons around napkins and Orders of Ceremony and don’t forget a cake topper that includes Easter bunting or take inspiration from our Bantam chickens for a topper with a difference.

For larger decorations, pastel paper pom poms and honeycomb balls are fantastic. You can easily make these yourself or buy them online in a huge range of colours. Tassel garlands in your chosen colours also look great hung behind the top table or cake table.

Our Favourite Easter Wedding Ideas

Easter is many things to many people but you really have to include a little bit of chocolate in your plans! Mini eggs make the perfect wedding favours for your wedding theme thanks to their pastel coloured shells and you can be sure that your guests won’t leave these behind. We also adore wedding breakfasts that make the most of the tasty seasonal produce that’s available at this time of year. Our caterers will be delighted to talk to you about all the options that are available.
