Soft & Romantic Melon : a Springtime Wedding Inspiration Board

So happy to welcome Laura {a monthly contributor} of Eye Candy Event Details to the blog today with her gorgeous inspiration for the spring season. And, just like previous months, Laura shares with us beautiful details for each photo so you can easily implement the elements into your event. For the inspiration board this month Laura writes . . . Happy Spring! Weddings in the spring are so beautiful because I think the color choices are so abundant to choose from. Soft pastels are always a win-win and the pops of color we get from all the blooming colors of the season. But what about going with a current color trend? As most of you probably already know, tangerine is the HOT color for the year, but what if it's a little too much color for you? Simple. Just try a 'softer' or muted shade of the ever-popular color . . . a nice soft, romantic melon. I personally LOVE this color & really believe it can be paired up with some amazing accent colors as well. How about a melon & grey color scheme? Or pair melon with yellow & a soft pink? The possibilities with this shade are endless & make for a beautiful color palette.

1. Make sure to set the tone for your spring wedding with an eye-popping fun invitation. This one comes with confetti as part of the design & pairs up with grey & a few of the softer pastel shades to make for an exceptional invite to one amazing party.

2. This gorgeous dress is a perfect choice for your bridesmaids as it compliments this season so well with it's sleeveless floor length style.

3. Mini cakes are becoming a popular trend & when combined with ruffled icing - you just can't go wrong! These would be a stunning addition to your display. Have your baker make several smaller mini cakes & design them in different shades of your color to get that 'ombre' look across your dessert buffet.

4. Choose a wedding cake design that can stand alone. This one is amazing with the simple ruffled edges & the melon flowers in two different shades to create a gorgeous work of art.

5. Outdoor spring weddings are the perfect time to use these beautiful parasols - especially these with the flower design on the top. How sweet of a photo is this? . . .  having the flower girls carry them - priceless!

6. "Words" are still a very popular addition to wedding décor. This wedding sign that spells out 'cake' is the perfect shade of melon & would make a great accent on the cake table.

7. Amazing flowers will give you amazing photos. These are no exception with the gorgeous shades of melon accented with grey tones makes this bouquet stand out.

8. Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! These shoes are GORGEOUS. This pair deserves to be shown in ALL of your photos. If you find shoes as fabulous as this, make sure to get the on film.

9. Wedding favors are a great way to get creative. Send your guests home with a cute favor bag full of marshmallows. They are growing in popularity & are available in so many flavors & colors now.

10. Dress your man in a soft grey suit & pair with a tie to match your spring color palette. We like this one with the subtle pattern of the dots - gives it a lot of character.

11. Looking for a different alternative for the dessert bar? Spring is the perfect time of year to try out an old fashioned sno-cone station. Have a variety of flavors ready to go for your guests to try.

12. Sometimes planning where to place the menu at a gorgeous table setting can be tricky. I love this idea of putting the menu hanging off the table but securing it down with the dinner plate. Functional & beautiful.

13. Designing a focal point for the center of your table just got easy with these beautiful flowers in the white & pastel blue vases. Simple yet stunning.

14. The perfect gift for your bridesmaids will always be jewelry. They will love these gemstone earrings & love wearing them again even after the wedding.
