Planning a wedding does not require a lengthy process. Some wedding couples would prefer to tie the knot sooner rather than taking all the time to plan an elaborate or luxurious ceremony. Spring is the time of the year when days would start to get longer, plants, flowers and trees start to bloom and the weather starts to get warmer. What better time of the year to get married when things start to get greener. Spring is a perfect alternative to the competitive environment of summer weddings provided that you do all the necessary research before handing the non-refundable deposits.
Experimenting with the Colors
White is the indeed the traditional color for weddings. And yes, pastels are also popular in weddings, especially this special season. You can also try to incorporate other colors in making a statement at your wedding day by bringing in shades of color that offset all the lovely spring pastel colors like mint greens with deep chocolate browns, or some latte hue with light blue. With all the color options, always keep in mind to keep your color palette simple to give that elegant look on your wedding.
Planning for the Weather
Indeed, spring do bring in the nice weather. But keep in mind that winter was not that far off. Along with the risk of snowstorms, with the usual spring rain showers, and temperatures are still cool. When looking or booking at venues, it is wise to choose for a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor choices. Make sure that you have arranged with the venue on your plans in cases of inclement weather that is brought on by the season. Also, when packing for the wedding, have a pair rain boots or some umbrellas in the case you would need them as drizzles might happen at anytime.
As with summer, spring weddings do book fast. When planning for a spring wedding, you might want to check with the venues, catering, photo booth services and other options and this is especially if you are looking at a schedule at a weekend followed by a Monday holiday. Once you have decided and set your heart on a venue, make sure to secure the date by making a deposit so you lock in the day. Many venues do allow this even if you have not finalized other basic details of your wedding such as you theme, colors and catering.
Selecting your Attire
During the spring, it is not quite hot enough for linen suits, but not cool enough for wool. Take advantage of fabrics that are breathable. Have the groomsmen have a lightweight suit and a three-quarter or short sleeve for the bridesmaids.
