Easter often gets overlooked when couples are deciding when to tie the knot, but it’s a great time of year to say 'I do'. Many of your guests will be off work for the long weekend, the weather is often warm but not too warm and there’s a ready-made backdrop of spring blossom for your photos. What’s more, it’s easy to include a few stylish Easter wedding ideas without going overboard with the plastic eggs and fluffy bunnies.

To inspire you, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite Easter wedding ideas. Each one will add a little bit of seasonal fun to your big day while still keeping the overall look super stylish. Enjoy!

1 Blooming brilliant invites

Set the tone with floral stationery, covered in cherry blossom, pastel coloured blooms or greenery. An early Save the Date card is also a good idea, as people often make holiday plans well in advance for Easter.

2 ’Tis the season for fab flowers

You’ll be spoilt of choice with seasonal flowers. Cheerful tulips, roses, ranunculus, lilacs, anemones, delphiniums, lilies, sweet peas and many more all bloom between March and April. And, of course, not forgetting the bright and beautiful daffodil, too.

Spring lends itself to loose floral arrangements with mismatched colours, as if they’ve just been scooped up from a meadow. Roughly arranged blossom branches or potted daffodils also make stylish and budget-friendly centrepieces.

Hannah and Joe married over Easter weekend and decked their ceremony and reception out with the prettiest white blossom trees, while Hayley & Jonathan went for a beautiful pink cherry blossom theme.

3 Let nature inspire your look

If you’re marrying outdoors or somewhere with beautiful gardens, reflect your surroundings with a nature-inspired dress embellished with delicate blooms and twisting leaves and vines. This can be a touch of discreet floral lace or a real statement with fabulous 3D appliqués. Choose accessories to match, with a floral hair comb or tiara and a veil edged with floral lace.

4 The prettiest pastels

For your colour theme, mirror the shades of the season with soft pastels. Mix blush pink, lavender and peach for a super pretty look or go for something more understated, like light champagne, baby blue or soft sage green. Although, if you can’t decide, simply have a mix of them all! 

5 The centre of attention

You can really have some fun with your table decor at Easter. Gold painted eggs look gorgeous and can be used as elegant place settings or hung from branches on the table centres. Centrepieces could also include feathery pampas grass or real feathers, as a subtle nod all those cute Easter chicks! Place names in the shape of birds, butterflies, flowers or eggs are charming too, while a single mini daffodil at each place setting looks amazing.

6 A warm welcome

A couple of spring cocktails in pretty pastel colours will help to get the party started. We love a refreshing Tom Collins with gin and lemon or a pink mimosa made with pink lemonade and champagne. For those with a sweeter tooth try a Mini Egg Martini! Decorate them with pretty edible flowers for the perfect seasonal drinks.

7 Sweet treats all round

Easter lends itself perfectly to sweet treats, and little bags of mini eggs are a modern alternative to sugared almonds. Natacha and Liam got married on Easter Sunday and had cute mason jars filled with mini eggs as favours. Alternatively, give guests cookies shaped like chicks, bunnies and daffodils or personalised chocolate eggs with their name iced on. It’s also a good time to plant wildflower seeds, so a packet makes a stylish gift.

8 Go for a seasonal menu

Seasonal food is always a good idea and can be easier on the budget than out-of-season items. For Easter, roast lamb with spring vegetables is the classic dish, so why not get your guests involved? Serve a whole leg of lamb to each table and designate one person as the carver with their own chef's hat and apron. Alternatively, a funky Greek-inspired food van serving spiced lamb dishes would go down a treat at a more relaxed do.

9 Finish with a dessert bar

There are so many fun pudding options for spring that it’s hard to pick just one. So, go for a dessert bar instead! Guests will love delights such as pastel-coloured macarons, iced doughnuts, mini eggs, Easter cookies, mini carrot cakes and even hot cross buns. For your wedding cake, make use of all the beautiful flowers available and decorate a simple style with fresh blooms.

10 Fun for all the family

Lastly, how about a few fun games to keep the kids (and perhaps the adults) busy? The youngsters and young at heart can wile away the afternoon following a treasure trail complete with chocolate eggs or having an egg and spoon race. Alternatively, set up a craft area where kids can decorate their own biscuits and eggs or make an Easter basket. Rachael and Paul had an Easter egg raffle followed by an egg hunt. “This is a bit of a tradition in my family and, as we were married over Easter weekend, we wanted to incorporate it,” says Rachael. “Each guest had a raffle ticket on their place card, then people were nominated to take a number from the hat. It was so much fun!”

Either way, we hope we’ve shown you that Easter is a great time of year to get married. It's also a theme you can really have fun with.
