Spring is one of the most wonderful times of the year for a wedding. Springtime reminds us of new beginnings and nature blossoming… the perfect fit for a wedding. Here at Tullyglass Hotel & Residences, we have held many a spring wedding and we are here to give you a few tips for your spring wedding!

Colours of spring

Spring sees the beginning of colour coming back into our lives. With flowers blooming, brighter skies and the fashion industry introducing the colours of the season. Of course, the bride usually chooses to wear white but it’s the colour surrounding the bride that can make her dress glow.

Flowers play a big part when it comes to planning your wedding and a spring wedding is no different. In fact, flowers at a spring wedding are essential! Springtime brings with it the most beautiful, bright and colourful flowers of all the seasons. But how can you show off all of these flowers… get creative!


  • Pots – create your wedding aisle out of plant pots with your favourite flowers.
  • Bouquets – Don’t forget the bride, bridesmaids and flower girls all need a big bunch of flowers. You can also sneak a few on the men, they need something pretty for their buttonhole.
  • Suspending flowers – we spotted this idea and thought it was perfect for a spring wedding. Springs of your favourite followers or flower petals hanging outside or on the entrance to your reception or wedding. Also, the perfect place for your guest to get that WOW phonograph. 
  • Centrepieces – centrepieces can be many things but when it comes to a spring wedding we think flowers are the answer! Choose flowers o match the theme of your wedding. They really tie the whole room together.

Choosing the perfect dressesspring wedding | tullyglass wedding | northern ireland | weddings ni

From brides to bridesmaids, dresses are one of the first things planned for a wedding. Sometimes even before the wedding is booked! Hosting a spring wedding allows you to be a little creative with your dress choices. From pastel and earthy colours for your bridesmaids and lighter material for the bride, there is lots of room for choice! (We think this is a good thing…)

Spring cocktails

Maybe not the most important part of your wedding but still something to think about… drinks! We know that guest have their own drink of choice but if you are planning a drinks reception before your meal then why not choose a spring theme cocktail? Our top picks are Pornstar Martini, Mojito, French Martini, Cosmopolitan or Aperol Spritz.

Cake, cake & more cake

And the reason anyone attends a wedding… CAKE! Ok, we are only joking but it is important. You can coincide your wedding cake with the spring theme by matching the flavour, the decoration or BOTH with the theme of spring. Light or citric tastes will remind your guest of spring, cover this sponge with brightly coloured frosting or edible floral decoration and you have got the perfect cake for your spring wedding.

Our advice… go to as many cake tastings as possible!
