Tips for Planning a Spring Wedding

April 11, 2016


Spring is in full swing, which means more couples are heading down the aisle! Whether you’re all set to tie the knot this season or next year, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind as your Big Day approaches. Get into these wonderful tips for planning an unforgettable spring wedding!

Ensure that your venue is Spring weather-proof
Spring weather is notoriously unpredictable so be prepared for an unpredictable forecast. Check with your venue to see if they have indoor accommodations and/or temporary outdoor structures, such as tents. Most importantly, don’t forget about the allergies that come with spring weather. Make sure that your venue has adequate air conditioning to keep everyone’s sniffles under control. You may even want to stock up on tissues and allergy pills just in case!

Remember, it’s peak season!
Keep in mind that it can cost you a pretty penny to get married in the spring, compared to other times of the year. Vendors are busier during peak season and everyone wants to get married. Engaged couples looking toward the next spring season should be mindful of the deals that come about during the off-season so they can plan ahead to save on their budget. Items like dresses and tuxes can be purchased during the off-season for a fraction of their original price. Setting a date during the middle of the week as opposed to the weekend or earlier in the day (think brunch!) will also shave down the overall cost of your wedding.

Embrace the seasonal blooms
There are a variety of gorgeous floral options in the spring, so stay seasonal! From the all-time favorite, peonies to lilacs, roses and hydrangeas (a low cost option), there is no shortage of beautiful florals to choose from. Even better, many blooms, like peonies, come in a variety of pastel hues that can complement your wedding’s color scheme.

Book your vendors early
Time is of the essence when it comes to booking vendors for a spring wedding. After getting engaged, it’s time to hit the ground running! Waiting until the last minute severely lessens the pool and quality of your options, so don’t wait too long. Also, don’t get too attached to a wedding date before you meet with potential vendors. Getting married during peak season will require some flexibility.

Spring is a beautiful yet busy time of the year for the couples! Plan accordingly to make the most of your wedding experience!
