Preparing for a Romantic Spring Wedding

“When is the big day?” is the next big question newlyweds have to answer after saying “Yes!”

While July, October, and December get most of the attention, spring quickly makes a strong case as the best season for weddings. Every season has its own beauty. Autumn weddings feature a beautiful color palette. Many winter brides say “I do” during lovely snowfalls. But undoubtedly, springtime weddings have some hidden advantages — the weather clears up, flowers bloom, and as they say, “love is in the air.”

The wedding of your dreams is possible with Flying Horse Ranchs help

Whether you stick with the tried-and-true or step out and try something new, here are a few budget-friendly spring wedding trends and tips to follow:

  • Get some cover-up or shrug to keep you warm on the way to the ceremony, during the reception, and for photos. From a shawl to a beaded topper and a lace capelet, there are endless options to choose from.
  • However, as spring is the time when flowers bloom, you can’t leave seasonal allergies behind. You don’t want to think about sneezing as you say “I do” on your wedding day. Make sure to bring over-the-counter antihistamines and tissues, or give them to your maid of honor to hold onto. If you’re allergic to pollen, consider having your ceremony and photos taken in the late afternoon or early morning.
  • Embrace the season by working with your florist and wedding stylist to create a look and feel that reflects the beauty and freshness of the season. Roses, peonies, hydrangeas, tulips, calla lilies, ranunculus, and sweet pea—the options are unlimited. Click here for decoration ideas.
  • If the weather isn’t favorable, have a backup wedding umbrella on hand. Leave it to the photographer to do a cheeky twist. As spring is the season of love, if you’re looking for a chic rainy celebration, a matching umbrella would do the trick.
