At GreenAcres Woodland Weddings, we’re famous for our bluebells. Our woods are full of them at this time of year and everything looks so wonderful. If you choose to hold your wedding with us in spring, the beauty in the woodlands might well inspire you so we thought today, we’d share some ideas for a bluebell inspired wedding theme…
A Bluebell Colour Palette
Blue has long been associated with weddings thanks to the ‘something old, something new’ rhyme. However, over the last few years, it’s become popular again for couples planning their wedding colour palettes. In fact, the colour experts at Pantone chose Serenity Blue as one of their favourite tones for spring just last year and this works perfectly for our bluebell theme.
Alongside your blue, fresh whites, dove greys and even beiges, greens and hints of gold are the best partners in your wedding colour scheme. Think of bridesmaids in fab blue dresses or blue and white separates whilst guys can wear crisp white shirts, cool blue ties and suits in grey, beige or darker blue suit for more summery days.
When it comes to your flowers and wedding decorations, a rustic look is definitely the way forward. Unstructured, loose and wild bouquets are so on trend and really reflect the natural beauty of our woodland wedding venues. For guys, buttonholes with spring flowers look fabulous, especially when they’re finished with a little wrap of blue ribbon or a length of twine.
If you’re looking to make a statement then a large floral arch will bring the wow factor to your wedding for sure. Use a lot of foliage to cut costs and reflect the natural beauty of the woodland and then use one or two floral additions around the corners of the arch. This will make an amazing backdrop to your ceremony and it’s great for photos too.
Bluebell Wedding Ideas
To really bring your bluebell wedding theme to life, why not add a few more details to your wedding? Bluebell seeds make delightful wedding favours and in the Victorian language of flowers, bluebells ‘convey respect and unwavering devotion to the one you love’ which makes them rather perfect for weddings!
Add in more blue details to your wedding tables with blue glassware or blue patterned plates. Don’t go overboard with blue details though – too much can look a little cold so add in plenty of softer colours, textures and patterns.
Finally, don’t forget to make sure that your wedding day schedule includes lots of time for photographs. Our bluebell woods make the most memorable setting for romantic photos…
