Tips on Planning a Perfect Spring Wedding
Springtime is here, and with it comes the ideal time to plan your wedding. If you’re looking to have a perfect spring wedding that reflects who you are as a couple and the unique nature of your relationship, the time to start planning is now.
However, planning can be a stressful and time-consuming process. From choosing the venue to deciding on your colour theme, you’ll want to make sure you’re on the right path. The following tips on planning a perfect spring wedding can help you along the way.
Determine Your Colour Theme
The best wedding colour themes can immediately bring the day to life. The right theme can also be used to tie your decor and floral arrangements together. After all, a wedding is more than just the cake, the rings, or even the guest gifts. Instead, it’s all of the little details that create the perfect day to tie the knot.
Colour themes are important for a few reasons. First, you can choose a colour that’s meant to represent your relationship. For example, a beautiful spring wedding theme could incorporate delicate blush tones, light yellows and bright pinks, or even a buttery gold. Second, the right colour can create a feeling of calm and serenity. This is especially important if your wedding falls during a time of year that is usually chaotic and hectic. Finally, picking the right colour theme can help set the tone for your wedding day.
Select Your Venue
Choosing the right venue is an important part of planning a perfect spring wedding. Landscaping, lighting, décor and a host of other factors come into play. However, when it comes down to it, you want a venue that allows for a large number of guests to attend without being too crowded.
When it comes to choosing the idyllic wedding venue, you have a few key factors to consider. First of all, you want a location that’s convenient for everyone. You also want to take into consideration the weather. Will the event take place outdoors? Can it be held indoors in case of bad weather?
If it’s held outdoors, the weather in the UK can be unpredictable, so you might want to think about having a shelter or a marquee in case there’s a light shower. Make sure that the venue has a dining room and indoor area where you can set up a buffet, and offer drinks and appetizers.
An indoor wedding should be well ventilated and should be vibrant and airy. The cheerful aura of spring is the best ambience to make your venue space feel more welcoming and enjoyable.
Select The Food & Drink
When you’re planning your perfect spring wedding, the food and drink options are endless. Food such as scones, cheesecakes (with meringues), delicious cocktails, seasonal fruits, colourful snacks, fresh salads, and savoury dishes are ideal choices for food and drink. You want to keep the options fresh and light.
It’s a good idea to buy local and seasonal produce which will save you some money. Also, you could create a self-service bar for your guests so that they can get a drink at any time during the day.
For the table layout, you can make informal long tables which are the traditional way of dining or you could go for individual tables that are unique and picturesque. You could select cream, soft pink, white, pale lavender, etc. to decorate your tables.
For a more rustic look, we’d recommend using wooden tables with simple, matching flowers. If you want a sophisticated look, you could also add a vintage chandelier or use paper lanterns around the venue.
Choose The Right Entertainment
You can let your guests explore the venue ground in the spring weather and take pictures together. You could set up an Easter egg hunt for everyone (especially for the kids) or hire a photo booth for your guests to take their best and most candid pictures of each other. They can take Spring Instagram-friendly pictures which will keep them occupied.
In the evening, you could hire a band to play some popular music or you can also opt for a DJ to play music that’s more contemporary, top 40 hits or other genres that you know everyone would love.
Pick The Right Dress
When it comes to picking the right dress, you have a few options. You can go with a classic white wedding dress or you can choose a more non-traditional dress with a colour accent.
If you love the idea of showing off your shoulders, you can also opt for a strapless dress. If you want to be extra non-traditional, you can also choose a dress with a floral design in the fabric.
You may also want to choose a wedding dress with some lace or embellishment. This is done to add some texture and romance to the fabric. The choice is yours, so once you’ve decided on the ideal gown with the exquisite colour theme, you’re ready to start planning your perfect spring wedding.
