Unique Spring Wedding Decor Ideas to Make Your Wedding Stand Out

New Orleans, Weddings

The wedding decor you choose with your fiancé will be the first and usually last thing your guests see. Your spring wedding decor choices will also be immortalized forever in all your photos and videos of the big day. So naturally, if you want your wedding to stand out, a great way to start is with the decor! More and more often, couples getting married are looking for wedding decor that feels different than the typical options and more representative of their partnership.

Finding Unique Spring Wedding Decor Ideas

While traditional fresh flowers and table runners are always available, most couples are looking for alternative options to help their event make a splash. Luckily, no matter how unique your spring decor ideas are, they can come to life with the right vendors and a vision. 

Garden Style, But Make It Your Own

As they say, florals in spring? Groundbreaking. Flowers are a staple of almost all weddings, but that is more true for spring events than any other time of year. However, plenty of unique spring wedding decor ideas are available to help you give a modern, personal touch to a floral theme.

Dried Flower Bouquets 

For those who want to reinvent traditional spring decor ideas, dried flowers are a unique, money-saving way to incorporate flowers into their overall look. Dried flowers—whether part of an arch, bouquets, centerpieces, or other decor elements—add a bohemian element to any wedding event. 

Another benefit to using dried flowers? They are long-lasting, which allows you to repurpose your wedding flowers for other uses for a longer time, giving you a little extra bang for your buck.

Bud Vases

Bud vases are smaller vases built to hold a single flower. Often, these vases come in sets with a unifying color. They can also be thrifted to create an even more personalized look. 

Bud vases are great for those searching for spring decor ideas that want a mismatched but still-aligned look for their wedding day. Similar to the mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses trend, having a set of bud vases will add dimension to your table centerpieces and overall decorations.

Paper Flower Walls

Do you want a photobooth moment without the typical photobooth background? A paper flower wall is easy to make and is super postable online. You have a variety of color schemes to choose from, be it neutrals, your wedding colors, patterns, florals, monotone, or more. A photo wall is a great way to add something different to your reception, especially if you have found yourself needing to use up some extra space at your venue.


Are you totally over flowers but still want a springy, natural look? What about succulents? You can put these affordable small plants on your tables as centerpieces in various pots. A bonus of this decoration is that you can send your guests home with them at the end of the night, minimizing any cleanup.

Keep it Lit Up with Candles

Similar to flowers, candles are a staple of the wedding look. However, there are a few ways to use candles to make your spring wedding look a little different.

Colorful Candles

Traditionally, weddings that make use of candles go with simple white candles, either in a pillar style or a taper set. While there is nothing wrong with having neutral-tone candles, you may want to go a different, more colorful way. Using different colored candles to brighten up your decor is simple and effective, adding a vibrant look to your tables without much effort.

Decorated Candles

If you have been online lately, you may have seen the videos of do-it-yourself decorated candles. Your unique candle creations can be done in one of two ways: with wax or napkins, depending on the desired effects. 

With a napkin, you can create bold, patterned candles. These dramatic candles can be made with only a few simple tools, such as a hairdryer and a single-ply napkin – no trips to the craft store are required for this activity. If you purchase custom wedding napkins, this is a great way to use extras and personalize your decor.

If you want a more DIY style of decorated candles, you can paint them yourself using wax. This craft is slightly more intensive but just as fun and unique.

Other Unique Spring Wedding Decor Ideas

At the end of the day, the decor is not all candles and flowers. This is why we have a few other interesting spring wedding decor ideas to add to your vision board.

Spell it Out with a Sign

Having a sign with your newly shared last name or another saying is about as personal as it can get for couples. There are many spring wedding decor ideas to pull from if this is an element you want to add to your overall look:

  • Banners
  • Pennants
  • Street signs
  • Balloon Letters
  • Garland

No matter how you decide to say it, guests will certainly find this piece of decor memorable!


Lemons, strawberries, oranges, or even pears and pineapples – adding a little fruit to your centerpieces is a great way to add texture and color to your tables. While it may be challenging to envision initially, using fruit can add a lot of whimsy to your decor.

Aerial Decorations

When you first hear chandeliers, you may think of the ornate metal lighting fixtures in houses. However, many are using hanging decorations like chandeliers or mobiles to add an extra layer to their decorating. Hanging floral garland is one option, while others opt for dramatic falling fringe made of paper, silk, or another material.

A benefit of this type of spring wedding decor is that it doesn’t take up any precious room on the floor. However, they’re best for indoor receptions.
