Wedding Day Checklist: Planning a Spring Wedding
Spring is about fresh starts and rejuvenation. If winter is a time of hibernation, spring is a time to get out, enjoy the fresh air and smell the roses.
It's also a very busy time for weddings. April brings showers and bridal showers. For churches and banquet facilities, the ball really gets rolling in May and June. Those are probably the two busiest months for holy matrimony.
If you love the idea of a spring wedding and want to stand out a bit from the wedding crowd, there are plenty of ways to make your spring wedding unique.
Dress the Part
Let's start with attire. Spring colors are perfect for a wedding ceremony. Also, consider the bridal gown. A tea-length dress can be lighter and can certainly fit in with any spring theme. It will also deliver a true spring look for any outdoor wedding photos. As for the groom, consider a lighter spring color for a tuxedo, rather than the usual darker colors. If the groom wants to go the suit route, keeping thinking spring and consider something like a seersucker suit.Pastel bridesmaids' dresses can be a popular choice for spring. The one thing to remember about spring weddings and attire is spring weather can be unpredictable. Keep umbrellas on hand.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
Talk to a wedding caterer about including spring into the reception dinner menu. This can be things like locally grown vegetables and seasonal fruits like strawberries. Consider adding cocktails with spring flavors, things like strawberry-basil margaritas or green tea mojitos.
Enjoy the Flowers
Celebrate the season of spring with plenty of fresh-cut flowers. Arrange them at guest tables at the reception and invite guests to take the flowers home. If you can incorporate flowers like cherry blossoms into the wedding, go for it.
You are only limited in your imagination when planning a spring wedding.
