Bride – spring flowers in hair, gown can be a flowing chiffon

Groom – gray suit or tux

Bridesmaids – soft gentle colors with delicate flowers and a wrap to keep them from getting chilly.

Flower girl – all white carrying a basket of easter eggs

And remember – Make sure to bring umbrellas in case of April showers!



White baskets filled with spring flowers or ceramic easter eggs that are personalized for each guest to take home. Or you could hang ceramic eggs from tree branches in a vase.


Label small Easter eggs for table seating. Use polka-dot or gingham fabrics and ribbons for table cloths and chair covers. Release butterflies or throw rose petals instead of rice.

Egg Hunt Sign


Easter brunch is a must! Mimosas, Eggs Benedict, Belgian Waffles with whipped cream and fruit topping, Breakfast Pastries, and the list goes on.


If you have lots of children on your guest list, have an Easter egg hunt or have an easter bunny hand out easter eggs.


Small chocolate easter bunnies or eggs, flower seeds or terracotta pots. Or, you could place a flower bulb in cellophane with a bow, attach a tag with instructions on how to plant. For a fun sweet favor, you could give everyone a package of Marshmallow PEEPS.

Use roses, daffodil, hyacinth, daisies, lilies, iris, and tulips for spring flowers.

These are just a few ideas to make your Easter themed wedding special, but there are so many more possibilities to use your own creativity to add something unique to your special day.
