Fresh Spring Wedding Ideas
Planning your simply superb spring wedding
Spring is an ideal season for romance. The world is buzzing with rejuvenation and expectation. Spring is for celebration, shaking off winter and welcoming back the warm weather. Couples planning to marry in the spring enjoy a variety of options when it comes to food, fashion and flowers. If you’re planning a spring wedding, think soft, clean color combinations and fresh, seasonal foods. Send your guests home with spring-themed favors that will excite them for the warm weather ahead.
Special planning for spring weddings
Spring used to be the busiest season for weddings, but in today’s popularity contest, it’s coming in third after summer and fall. While it may seem like spring should mean clear calendars for venues and vendors, don’t forget that the season is a popular time for proms and Spring Break. Couples planning spring weddings should book venues, limos, tuxes and their honeymoons early to avoid disappointment.
When planning your honeymoon, talk to your travel agent about “adults only” resorts and getaways so your romantic mood isn’t spoiled by Spring Break keg parties and bikini contests. Adults only resorts can be deceptive - some welcome guests as young as 16. Ask your travel agent about destinations that are less popular for Spring Breakers or if there are “couples only” resorts that would be better for your honeymoon.
We all know that April showers bring May flowers, but we’re still hoping to avoid a soggy wedding day! You can’t control the weather, but you can be ready for it. Outdoor weddings should have a back-up indoor venue for the ceremony and reception. Special extra touches like umbrella-toting escorts to get your guests from their cars to the hall will be very welcome. At least a wet spring will mean plentiful wedding flowers!
Spring has unpredictable precipitation, and we’re not just talking about rain. If you live in a northern area, you know just how late in the year you can expect snowstorms. Keep yourself and your wedding party warm by planning for wraps and closed-toed shoes in the early months of spring.
Your spring wedding can be just the event to reawaken your guests from a long, cold winter and invigorate them for the year ahead. We hope your special spring day is everything you imagined.
