8 ideas for an Easter-themed wedding

Inspired by beautiful pastel tones, vibrant pops of colour and foodie feasts galore, SoGlosWeddings has rounded up eight ways to create a beautiful Easter-themed wedding.

Whether you’ve got a spring date in mind or you’re still looking for wedding inspiration, SoGlosWeddings has come up with eight egg-citing ways to create an Easter-themed wedding.

From chocolate egg favours to pastel-coloured bridesmaid dresses, Easter lends itself to plenty of playful touches that are perfect for adding an original feel to your special day.


1. Embrace bright spring florals


Celebrating your special day with an Easter wedding means brides can take full advantage of the gorgeous pastel tones and hues that the new floral season boasts and can also experiment with brighter spring favourites, including daffodils and tulips.

Combine seasonal blooms with staple greens to create a vibrant bouquet and add some originality to your wedding day which will also look great in your photographs. Using flowers that are in season and readily available can also help to reduce the cost of your bouquet.


2. Brighten up your bridesmaids


Let your leading ladies have their moment by choosing from the best of spring’s stunning colours for their dresses, or opt for a floral print for an alternative take on traditional attire.

Think fuchsia pinks, soft yellows and colourful tones to add warmth to your wedding day. Play it safe by opting for dresses in the same shade or create a soft spectrum of spring colours with an array of hues to suit their different skin tones.


3. Get your groom on board


Tie your theme together with subtle touches that will mean even your groom will be on board with the Easter theme.

Adding quirky touches with playful bowties and pastel suits will create a stunning spring spectrum of tones and promises to make the main man the centre of attention.


4. Choose an egg-stravagant cake


While naked cakes and cupcakes are all the rage for contemporary weddings, an Easter theme promises a little more wriggle room and is the perfect time for chocolate-lovers to indulge in the ultimate sweet pièce de résistance .

Opt for decorations including tiny mini eggs or adorn with spring flowers and serve on a rustic tree trunk board. Don’t forget to dress the whole table which your cake will be served on, try dotting mini jars of Easter treats around or lay some Easter wreaths on the table too.


5. Bring the outside in


Spring is a season of colour and pops of pattern, add layers of texture to your tables with moss runners, which also bring an alfresco element to your wedding breakfast.

Layer up with floral arrangements and contrast with crisp white tablecloths for an elegant look, and don’t forget to add candles and lanterns to add a little warmth and glow.


6. Enjoy an Easter feast

Enjoy traditional Easter favourites with succulent roast lamb and all the trimmings. For an alternative relaxed finish, have your meats and vegetables served up on large plates in the middle of the tables where guests can just help themselves.

To add a splash of colour to your wedding breakfast, opt for fresh seasonal vegetables and local produce that will taste even better and go down a treat with your guests.


7. Give a floral thank you


Banish the boring traditional favours and give your guests a piece of the Easter theme to take home for themselves with gorgeous pots of the spring staple; daffodils.

Create a stunning feast for the eyes and arrange your floral favours on a side table and encourage guests to take one, this will act as a beautiful decoration for your venues and free up much-needed space on the dining tables themselves.


8. Create some egg-cellent entertainment


Promising to be a hit with wedding guests of all ages, stage your own Easter egg-stravaganza with an Easter egg hunt dotted around your venue.

The perfect way to show off your stunning venue, guests can roam around the grounds or hunt inside if your venue allows it.
