Planning a spring wedding is absolutely essential
If you are planning a wedding this spring the time will pass rapidly and it’s time to make some decisions before everyone beats you to it. To help the process along we have chosen some ideas to assist in making your dream wedding come true.
Tea dresses and salmon pink bouquets
In terms of dress a tea-length dress is a very cute choice for this time of the year. If you are daring and want to bare your shoulders a nipped in waist and a gorgeous posy bouquet in salmon pink and white can really complement the season.
The Bride and groom could reflect the season
Don’t leave the groom out as Spring, if we are lucky with the weather is a great time to throw off dark colours and maybe go for a seersucker suit and even top that off with a bow tie in pastel colours. Bride and groom will then look optimistic, light, fresh and gives the impression of creating a brand new start in the Spring season. It is a very optimistic look for a wedding and is bound to draw favourable comments from guests.
Complement the blossom and foliage in the grounds
If you ask your venue what blossoms are likely to be in the grounds you might even try to colour coordinate flowers, bow ties and bridesmaids, try a powder blue for example to contrast or echo the beauty of cherry, almond or apple blossom. The pictures will look stunning.
Spring is such an inspirational time of year for weddings
This season can help you when choosing boutonnieres for grooms and his men and dresses for the bridesmaids. Your formal pictures can almost be planned in advance. Many wedding venues are geared up to show prospective brides and grooms just where the best places are in the grounds for fabulous shots and what kinds of flowers and foliage they can expect depending on the month of their choice.
May Day and May Queens in miniature
Flower girls can look positively cherubic and adorable with floral wreath headdresses and will bring freshness and a feeling of Spring to any wedding.
Spring itself heralds the return of longer days, blue skies and regrowth so what better time to get married? Therefore the choice of flowers for the ceremony and reception can really accentuate these feelings of anticipation.
