1. Say spring with floral

Nothing says spring more than flowers, so why not incorporate them into your wedding gown?

You can choose a gown with floral accents on the dress itself, or you could include them with a stunning headpiece or design on the veil.

Many dresses feature white flowers for a more traditional look, while others have colorful flowers lining the gown for a unique pop of color.

2. Choose a light, airy fabric

One benefit of a spring wedding is the weather. Many locations offer weather that’s not unbearably hot but not too cold either.

When looking for wedding dresses, select fabrics that are light and breathable for your big day.
