The weather outside may be a bit frightful, but that doesn’t mean it is too early to start planning your upcoming spring wedding. In fact, now is actually a great time to continue making, and finalizing plans for your spring wedding. (It’s also the perfect time to mail out save the dates, and to plan any bachelorette parties and showers you might be having, as well.) If you feel creatively stuck, though, trying to think about warmer weather while in the depths of winter, we can help you spring ahead!
What Should You Wear?
While you should feel free to choose any dress that suits your style, it can be helpful to think about when and where you will be marrying. An outdoor venue, in the springtime, for instance, is perfect for a tea length dress and cowboy boots, or a more traditional form-fitted gown. Really any style can work, just be mindful of long trains dragging on grassy or dirty surfaces. (This is why many brides opt to lay aisle runners down before their “I do’s.”)
- If you’ll be getting married some place that gets cool in the evenings, consider adding a light sweater or scarf to your bridal look. Or, opt for one of the many modern dresses made with beautiful lace sleeves!
Are Your Guests Going to Be Comfortable?
When choosing whether to wed indoors or out, it is certainly important to take the season into consideration. Springtime can be notorious for flower-nurturing showers. So, plan ahead by renting tents, or choosing a venue with indoor and outdoor reception spaces.
Look to Spring for Color Cues
Mother Nature works with a beautiful and vibrant palette in the springtime, so let the seasonal blossoms serve as inspiration when choosing bridesmaids dresses, tablecloths, and other décor! Not only will this compliment any natural blooms on your venue’s property, but it can also help your florist work with seasonal flowers (which can be great for your budget!).
Roses, tulips, peonies and orchids are just some of the popular wedding flowers that bloom in the springtime. For a more exotic look, consider working with hyacinth, zinnias, freesias, dahlias, or cherry blossoms, which all bloom in the spring, as well.
