I can’t really picture a spring wedding without pastel colors especially yellows and pinks. But if you really wanted dark colors, I like PP’s suggestion above of dark green and white. gabby456 :

What about going for jewel tones? Very dark but I think you could pull it off for spring…

Freshly married Autumn soul here!! I totally get this, I was not a spring fan, but what matters more is marrying your best friend sooner than later and if I were in your situation i wouldn’t wait 2 years either. I would say pick a dark bold color that you love and cant live without (mine was maroon) and run with it and just mix in lighter colors on the more visible pieces of decor like tablecloths,  chair sashes, ribbons, etc. Metallics can add a lot of mood while still being light and airy, and add lots of greenery where you can get the deep green and olive shades but it will totally still look springy after the long dead northeast winter because its fresh and green! Last thought, if you can, maybe try to pick a venue that has a bit of the dark and moody feeling you love, like wood, stone, etc so you still have a darker feeling as a base and your decor and flowers can bring in a bold bright spring!

 There’s no law that says you have to have a pastel color theme for a spring wedding. Just use the colors and flowers you like, who cares about the date?

We did a lot of white, greens, and blues for our early fall wedding because it fit well with our venue. We made it a bit more fall by using white mini pumpkins in our decor. Do what you like and what you think will make you happy at the end of the day. It’s your wedding and you get to decorate it however you’d like! I love both of the color palettes you linked. 🙂

I would think if it was evening the darker colors would be great! Plus.. if your “theme” matches the flowers there’s no set right or wrong flower choice per season! I say get what you love and make it work!!!

Go with dark and pops of light (pink, creams, etc).

I honestly don’t get why this is such a thing. My wedding is in May and my main color is dark emerald green. People act shocked. Why does spring=pastels?? Why is emerald only for winter? I say do what you want… guests probably won’t even remember, so it’s more for YOU!

  • Wedding: June 2020

Our wedding is June 6th due to weather preference and venue availability. Beyond that we aren’t really interested in “spring wedding” specific ideas, so we’ve just been choosing what we like the most. 

The reception is in a glass and brick conservatory with stone floors and vines growing on the walls. We’re doing gray/silver with greenery and dark wood and just white candles to lighten it up a bit. Basically like the photo below but with less stuff on the table overall because I don’t like crowded table settings.
