Now that it is almost officially winter, it is time to start planning your spring wedding. Planning a spring wedding doesn’t have to be overly difficult, as this is a time of year for rebirth and renewal. This can give you some really great spring wedding ideas that will surely result in you having the wedding of your dreams.
First of all, spring in Massachusetts is beautiful. This means that there is an abundance of outdoor weddings. That is unless they are rained out because the spring does bring rain with it in order to bring on the May flowers. This is why it is good to have a backup plan or simply keep the wedding indoors and utilize the outside for the wedding photos.
Here are some spring wedding tips to help you ensure your wedding goes off with just one kind of “hitch:”
1. It rains so the flowers can grow.
As they say, “April showers bring May flowers” and that is not an understatement because it doesn’t rain in just April. March can still be somewhat cold. April’s temperatures fluctuate with plenty of rain thrown in. May starts to become more colorful, but more rain is needed to bring that color. Also in May, storms tend to start to rear their ugly heads and they can be rather vicious. In June, the odds of an outdoor wedding improve, but, again, the weather can be unpredictable. What many do as a safety measure is opt for a spring wedding venue that can give them a lot of what they need in order to make the wedding planning easier.
2. You don’t have to go for pastel wedding colors.
If you are tired of seeing the same old pastel colors at spring weddings, then you can take a look at some spring wedding color trends that spice them up a bit. You can pair pastels with contrasting colors in order to create a unique look. For instance, try pairing brown, pink, and sky blue or lavender with coral and lime green. If pastels are not your thing, then one of the best spring wedding ideas is to simply go with what you want. Bold colors are always in, so go ahead and integrate them into your spring wedding.
3. Have the wedding and reception in the same place.
You don’t have to make your guests move from one location to another between the ceremony and the reception. There are spring wedding venues that enable you to have both your ceremony and reception in the same place. This is something that can save money and you can spend more time celebrating and less time with the logistics of everything. A spring wedding venue can also set you up with a caterer, entertainment, a photographer, and everything you need to ensure your wedding is absolutely perfect. When the venue is all-inclusive, a lot of stress is taken out of the wedding planning process.
4. Decorations that say something.
Your flowers are part of your decorations. Beyond the flowers, you have bows and centerpieces for the reception tables. Mix things up how you like. You can use different textures and levels of sophistication. For centerpieces, use flowers and candles. You can light those candles to create a more comfortable environment. If you want to light up the centerpieces in order to enhance them, place votive candles each one to soften the overall appearance.
5. You can stick to your budget.
One area that scares brides and grooms is sticking to the budget. Opting for an all-inclusive spring wedding venue can make a significant difference when it comes to cost. That in itself takes care of many of the elements of the wedding. You can then see what you have left over to work with when it comes to the additional elements, which will narrow down your search for items that will make your wedding work.
These are just some of the spring wedding tips that will help you have the wedding of your dreams. Even when working on a budget, there is no reason why you can’t have the day that you want, especially since there will never be another day in your life like it.
