Bright, floral-focused weddings are trending! Perhaps due to the renewed interest in maximalist design or a desire to shift away from neutral palettes. In either case, a vivid color scheme will lend a luxe and modern look for the spring and summer seasons. Get inspired to host a colorful spring wedding with these on-trend ideas starring our stylish event rentals. Southern Events Online has everything you need to pull off a chic celebration, from a whimsical garden ceremony to a bold maximalist reception.
Bold Monochromatic Scheme
One of our favorite bright wedding color schemes is a monochromatic palette. Red, blue, orange, pink, or purple – mixing the hues from any one of these colors are perfect for a bold wedding. For example, this gorgeous tented wedding with bright red and pink tablecloths is classically romantic. Especially when complemented by brilliant floral centerpieces and fresh bundles of greenery. Meanwhile, crisp napkins paired with White Round China and Bradley Flatware kept the look modern and airy. Our Gold Chiavari Chairs are a sophisticated touch, as is the Tessa Tufted Beige Linen Loveseat, overall, a super cozy detail the newlyweds will enjoy.
Refreshing Blue & Green Hues
This spring wedding inspiration stars refreshing blue and green hues, for a soft and organic vibe. It’s a gorgeous look for an early spring wedding as we come out of a cold and dreary winter! Start with romantic tablecloths starring bright blues, like our Light Blue Pindot, or you might consider the Blue Kensington linens, for a chic maximalist design. Furthermore, tie in splashes of green using buttery napkins in the color Fern, and create an elegant drink station to greet guests using our Green Goblets. For a fun interactive element, display them on White Barback Bookshelves. If the weather is nice we always recommend an outdoor lounge! Take a look at our romantic Everly Sofa and Chairs, paired with the Blanche Coffee Table and aqua rug.
Rich & Retro Chic
Dreaming of vibrant wedding colors that will bring a sense of retro charm to your big day? Check out this romantic spring wedding starring a bold palette of teal and amber! Our Sea Glass Velvet Tablecloth is a dark base, complemented by Kennedy Storm Napkins, and Earthen Alabaster China with Austin Gold Flatware provides a chic touch. Our favorite detail is the retro-inspired furniture! From the Antique White Bentwood Chairs to the gorgeous Jaqueline Sofa. Do you love this color scheme and the modern retro rentals?

Team Southern recently had the opportunity to collaborate with local vendors on a whimsical styled shoot at The Cordelle. An event venue & garden situated in Downtown Nashville, it was a stunning backdrop for the colorful outdoor wedding. With a mix of historic and modern spaces, featuring grandeur and charm, there was no shortage of room to create a functional and on-trend wedding layout. Check out the details from this dreamy garden-inspired wedding, featuring our stylish event rentals.
Seating for a Whimsical Indoor Ceremony
The ceremony took place in The Victorian, featuring brick walls, hardwood floors, and beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows. Contrasting the urban event space, we opted for our elegant Harlin Dining Chairs. Featuring light wood and detailed backs, they were the perfect choice for the dreamy indoor ceremony. An equally gorgeous alternative would have been our Adeline Dining Chairs! While we decided to keep the aisle bare, featuring a mix of our vintage rugs would have also been a beautiful choice, lending a cozy vibe.
A Dreamy Outdoor Reception Set Up
Meanwhile, the 5,000-square-foot Garden Lawn created an ethereal garden reception. The manicured lawn and bistro lights overhead made for a charming outdoor setup – especially come nightfall. Our Fruitwood Farm Tables and Harlin Dining Chairs were the base for the guest tables. This banquet style is perfect if you want a more intimate feel! Set with Heirloom China, Hob Nob Glassware, and Sophia Flatware, the look was elegant and vintage-inspired. Fun fresh florals and Turqouise Poly Napkins provided a punch of color, fitting for the season! Our Davis Glass Cylinders filled in the table centerpieces.
Blue-Hued Wedding Lounge
Eventually, The Victorian was flipped into a cozy cocktail area. Contrasting the warm-toned space, we chose our always popular Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa and Chair. It paired beautifully with a bright Aqua Rug and modern Rhodes Coffee Table. To optimize the space were a handful of cocktail tables – dressed up with deep black linen. Combining with the whimsical florals, it was a perfect cocktail hour set up for the colorful garden wedding.
On-Theme Wedding Cocktails
To match the colorful event design, equally bold wedding cocktails were required! J Jackson Mobile Mixologist served up a variety of delicious colorful cocktails in our Davis and Coupe Glasses. We chose these pieces for their clean shape, contrasting the vintage-inspired Hob Nob Glassware used at each table. We also loved the fun colors of the beverages as well as edible florals!

Metallic Place Settings
An easy way to add warmth to a colorful backyard event is with gold or silver accents. Featuring our Gold Round Lacquer Charger and Austin Flatware, adds a touch of metallics that contrasts beautifully against turquoise centerpieces. It also complements the golden yellows and sunset-inspired oranges throughout the event design. Don’t forget to pull these accents into other parts of your events with gold-rimmed glasses on your bar or gold side tables in your lounge. This creates a more cohesive look.
When it comes to table centerpieces people often feel the need to use matching pieces. A colorful backyard party is a perfect time to experiment with creative shapes and colors. This tablescape features a mix of vases, in teal, white, gold and clear glass – easy for a DIY backyard party. For candles, we suggest varying heights to add some dimension (though you can also create this with taller arrangements). As far as flowers go, consider keeping it simple but bright with a variety of wildflowers. Orange & yellow tones perfectly contrasted and popped against the teal and white glassware!
Vibrant linens are so much fun! The use of bright colors will lend a sense of liveliness to your event, plus make your event photos pop. Don’t be afraid to use different linens for each table either! Note how we were careful to switch up the color of our table centerpieces depending on the linen color. As a general rule: place lighter colored centerpieces on dark tablecloths and vice versa. Our Fuschia Etched Velvet Linens with their gold veining would be a another way to bring in a subtle metallic accent and a bold pop of color.

Color, whimsy and fun collided beautifully in this style shoot at CJ’s Off the Square, featuring a fun kite theme! A talented local Nashville photography company, The Collection, captured the look and feel of this theme in CJ’s gorgeous garden wedding venue, located in Historic Downtown Franklin.
Some of our favorite rentals featured in this shoot were our White Chiavari Chairs that have a color and texture that works flawlessly with an outdoor garden venue like CJ’s. We also featured our Mini White Wash Farm Table and White Poly Stripe Linens.
For this shoot, an entertaining mix of rich golden yellows, royal purple and teal were used to capture the vibrancy of the whimsical theme. Our favorite part of the event decor was the hanging kite decoration, featuring swirling ribbon and even a few miniature kites handcrafted by planner Anna of Anna Elizabeth Weddings. For the tablescape, our Royal White Square China set off the symmetry of the kite lines ribbon found throughout the event set up! For added texture, we loved the striped paper straws and ribbon wrapped around each cake tier.
Thank you SO much to these wonderful vendors for their participation in this style shoot!
