Love, Dominique: Spring Wedding Trends!
It’s spring! With so many couples tying the knot, we thought we’d ask our CEO, Dominique Schurman, about some of her favorite springtime wedding trends. With a keen eye for details and her finger on the pulse of what’s popular, Dominique offers some current wedding industry styles, along with timeless advice on etiquette.
Springtime is such a special time of year. It signifies the rebirth of warmth and beauty after the lull that follows the buzz and excitement of the holiday season. It’s the first feeling of warmth after long, cold days, the amazement of witnessing fields of flowers coming back to life, and the sense of possibility. Spring to me means opportunity, a chance to start anew, and appreciating all that life has to offer with the continual growth we all experience in our lives.
What are your favorite top five wedding invitation trends right now?
Gorgeous and whimsical florals are always on trend for Spring Weddings. They denote the resurgence of life and beauty, and are consistently a perfect way to add elegance and class to a spring wedding.
Blush tones in 2017 are everywhere! Blush pink and rose tones are becoming the new neutral. It’s a sophisticated color that can be paired with almost anything. The tone isn’t too bold but is still unique and adds a level of chic to a spring wedding.

What wedding invitation details do you recommend couples include?
- Couples should always ensure they are using proper etiquette when working on the wording for their invitations. It is crucial to follow proper wording that applies to the parents of the bride and groom, location, etc.
- Simplicity is key; don’t overdo it. Whether it’s the invitations or the decorations, sometimes keeping things simple and elegant is the way to go!
- Just because there are “trends” out in the invitation realm, don’t ever lose sight of who you are as a couple. Always make sure the invitation speaks to you, your style, and the type of wedding you envision. Always make it your own!
