A sprinkling of freeze-dried rose petals, available in many different colors, is a festive addition to any tabletop.
Herbs are lovely springtime accessories and favors. Rosemary, a wedding favorite, symbolizes remembrance. There are many garden herbs to choose from and they can be tied together in bunches or displayed as diverse bouquets. Green centerpieces are novel and representative of the bountiful green of spring.
Arbors are romantic, and they are especially lovely for spring weddings, as they are reminiscent of gardens and landscapes.

Arbors can be decorated with floral garlands, tulle and bows, faux birds, string lights, herbal bouquets, or simply left alone to present an arch against the natural colors of spring. Arbors can be used indoors as well, and will lend a garden feel to any room.
Along with the inspirational foliage of spring come insects. Although we may not always relish their existence, they can be included with your springtime accessories to make your wedding feel spring-like. Many home decorating shops sell decorativel insects such as bees, ladybugs, dragonflies, and butterflies, made of wood or metal and portrayed in an almost ethereal way. Attach them to chair backs or hang them from above. You can also find string lights in insect shapes.

However, ensure that your butterflies are a local breed so that they are not confused during migration.
