add some (eye) candy to your wedding

It's officially Easter season! So in the spirit of chocolate and bunnies (and of course the true meaning of Easter), why not incorporate the holiday into your wedding? Come on, hop to it!
Wedding flowers for Easter wedding

Here are some egg-cellent wedding ideas (yep, we're punning up a storm today)!

1

Spring-inspired bridesmaid dresses

Fresh, vibrant colors and floral prints are perfect for spring, so dress your maids accordingly. Gowns with some floral embellishment (like a flowered sash) are also a great option. Personally, we love floral print dresses — it's like having a bouquet of bridesmaids (oh come on, we're laughing)!

2

Hold an Easter egg hunt

If there will be kids attending your wedding, holding a post-ceremony Easter egg hunt is a fun, affordable way to keep them occupied while the adults are enjoying the canapes. But who are we kidding — the adults will probably join in too!

Egg-inspired favors

Easter egg favors will be a surefire hit with your guests. Everyone loves chocolate, right? Pick eggs that are wrapped in your wedding theme colors, or use colored candy eggs. Place in personalized boxes for the extra cute-factor, or place them in a nest (oh, the whimsy).

Egg decorations

Painted or dyed eggs make for some amazing centerpieces. Use neutral colors like browns, creams or "speckled" shades for a more rustic look. Place the eggs in jars, nests, boxes — whatever tickles your fancy. Stuck for ideas? Head over to Pinterest and get pinning!

5

Spring flowers

Nothing says "spring wedding" like springtime flowers. The choices are endless: anemones, peonies, roses, tulips, lily-of-the-valley — the list goes on. Best of all, spring flowers tend to come in dreamy (yet still vibrant) shades like sorbet, peach, purple, mint and yellow.
