It’s that time of year! Couples are getting engaged from November – February, and many of them plan spring weddings! There’s just something special about a spring wedding. Your spring wedding is destined to be beautiful thanks to the seasons warmer weather and plethora of in-season flowers. So, let’s dive in and get inspired by all the romance and possibilities of a spring wedding. Here are my best tips for planning a romantic spring wedding!
If you have a preference for a spring wedding, you might also favor pastels. These softer shades are prevalent in the months of March-June. I recommend choosing one or two base colors to carry throughout your wedding to create an elegant affair. Then, add pops of an accent color to breathe life into the design. Pink is surprisingly versatile, and there are so many hues to choose. Yellow is a classic spring color, and I love how cheerful it looks paired with soft pink and peach tones. Add greenery of your choice and voila…floral perfection! Are you tired of seeing those same pastel tones? Try pairing them with the bright, bold colors of the season. Whatever you choose, carry it throughout the rest of the wedding for a cohesive and refined story.
Spring weddings provide greater flexibility with the schedule. A sunny spring day is a perfect time to hold a daytime party. The mild temperatures and the longer days make an ideal scenario for both a day or evening wedding.
There are more options when it comes to a springtime look. Your wedding dress hemline can be shorter, with lighter fabrics, and a very delicate feel. But, floor-length gowns are always appropriate. The same applies to your wedding guests. The dress code can be more understated. Be sure to set expectations with your guests.
Spring is where this can get a little tricky. We all know, “April showers bring May flowers.” Mother nature can be a bit temper mental this time of year. Play it safe and have a Plan B, like a tent or a dedicated space for an indoor wedding in case of rain.
Embrace the season! It’s easy to love the bright and fresh fruits and vegetables. These can easily be paired with lighter seasonal dishes with poultry and fish. Finger foods like mini quiches are always fun! Try incorporating desserts like sorbet and ice cream with in-season fruits.
So long red velvet and dark chocolate ganache! We are here for the lighter flavors like lemon, raspberry, and vanilla! Your cake will look fresh dressed in your coordinated florals or opt for a trendy “naked cake.”
Now that spring is here; fruity cocktails are a must! A white wine sangria drenched with fresh fruit would be the hit of any party! But hey, margaritas and cosmos are always a good idea!
Whew! There you have it! My best tips for planning a romantic spring wedding.
