The start of spring will feel a little different this year with uncertainty about the wedding season that's ahead, but that won't stop us feeling nostalgic about the amazing celebrity and royal weddings of the past. The likes of the Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton, the Duchess of Sussex and Michelle Keegan were all springtime brides – and don't they look gorgeous?

Katherine Schwarzenegger's wedding to Chris Pratt

Hollywood couple Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger married in late-spring 2019, and everything about their styling – from the bride's strapless Giorgio Armani wedding dress to her bouquet of white roses – was perfect for the time of year they tied the knot.

Lady Gabriella Windsor's wedding to Tom Kingston

Blossom trees and foliage are at their brightest and most beautiful at this time of year, so make like Lady Gabriella Windsor and incorporate them into your day if you can. They provide a stunning backdrop to your wedding photos.

Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry

The Duchess of Sussex incorporated several spring details into her royal wedding with Prince Harry in May 2018, from the flowers to the flavours in their wedding cake. Meghan showed that you can still wear long sleeves in spring, with her bespoke Givenchy gown the perfect choice for the weather.

How beautiful were the flowers that adorned St George's Chapel in Windsor? The display featured in-season blooms and greenery including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, along with white garden roses, foxgloves and peonies. Not only will using seasonal flowers make your spring wedding all the more beautiful, but it could also save you money when wedding planning, too. Take note!

Your wedding cake is another great way to give a nod to the time of year you're getting married in. For Prince Harry and Meghan, this meant incorporating seasonal flavours of lemon and elderflower into their unique cake installation, which was served to guests at their royal wedding reception.

Kate Middleton's wedding to Prince William

There’s so much to love about Prince William and Kate’s royal wedding, from the breathtaking setting of Westminster Abbey to the bride’s bespoke Alexander McQueen gown. Again, Kate proved that long sleeved wedding dresses are still a great choice for spring, with her lacy sleeves a chic way to cover up for the April weather.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were ahead of their time when it came to decorating their ceremony venue. Aisle decorations are big news for 2019, perhaps inspired by the way Westminster Abbey was lined with six huge maple trees and two hornbeams to stunning effect at the royal wedding in 2011.

We don’t know what we love more -  the stunning foliage and flowers on display outside Pippa Middleton’s wedding, or the bride’s Giles Deacon gown with its high neck and cap sleeves – perfect for the time of year.

You may not have royalty in your bridal party, but you can still make your little pageboys and flower girls feel like princes and princesses with adorable traditional outfits like Pippa. We love the pretty flower crowns worn by Pippa’s niece Princess Charlotte and the other young bridesmaids.

Nearly four years on, we’re still coveting Michelle Keegan’s beautiful spring bridal look, comprising of a fishtail Galia Lahav gown with a long Italian lace veil.

We’re not the only ones who appear to have been inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge’s royal wedding look. Not only did Geri Halliwell recruit Kate’s wedding dress designer, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, to create her beautiful gown, but with its lace sleeves and cinched-in waist, it’s definitely reminiscent of the Duchess’ wedding day look.

Eva Longoria's wedding to Jose Baston

We love how Eva Longoria traded a classic bridal bouquet for a unique white orchid cascade, which complemented her minimalistic Victoria Beckham wedding dress to perfection. Meanwhile, spring offers grooms the opportunity to try lighter colours such as pale grey for their wedding suit, just like Eva’s groom Jose ‘Pepe’ Baston.

Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West

We may have Kim and Kanye to thank for the flower wall trend that has become a favourite at weddings all-year-round. Take cues from the A-list couple by incorporating the look into your own spring nuptials, using a classic wall of all-white seasonal blooms to create the perfect backdrop to your ceremony and wedding photos.

Former Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley’s wedding is full of inspiration for couple’s planning a spring wedding, with special touches such as scented candles and beautiful white flowers adorning their venue. Meanwhile, the bride’s off-the-shoulder Philip Armstrong wedding dress is another great style for spring featuring delicate lace fabric and illusion detailing.
