When planning a spring jersey shore wedding many brides only associate pastel colors with this season. While pastel colors are beautiful don’t be afraid to step outside the box and add pops of color with these 3 easy tips!

1. Mix up pastel colors with brighter hues of them. Step up light green with a lime or add cobalt blue, teal, or magenta into the mix. Incorporating both pale and bright colors will give your wedding a surprise element.

2. Instead of putting lighter toned flowers all over your wedding to represent the beauty of this season add other natural elements. Spring is the time of rebirth so putting together any variety of branches, herbs, feathers, and flowers together for example will make your wedding stand out.
