What’s that? THE SUN? Spring is quickly approaching and what brighter time to have a wedding than the spring season. As you prepare for your springtime wedding, we have some thoughtful tips for you on how to make it the absolute best. Spring is one of the most popular times for weddings, and so being prepared is crucial to the big day success.
- Rain rain go away, come again another day.
Yes, as much as we love spring, the rain showers are unavoidable. And how can we prepare for this trouble that mother nature likes to cause us?
There’s a simple solution… Tents, tents, and bigger tents. Look up tent rentals to ensure that yes, you can have that outdoor wedding you’ve always wanted, but not at the cost of that perfectly done up hair. Tents are a stunning, simple way to prevent the rain from ruining your special day. You’re still outside, but safe from the mudslide; the kind of slide all white gowns are trying to avoid.

3. We still love you pastels, but it’s time for some change.
There’s always going to be the classic pastel color palettes in the spring, but there’s no reason for you to hold back on trying something new. Pastels can be beautifully mixed with contrasting colors just to spice things up a notch! Baby pinks with a charcoal gray, maybe lavenders with pops of bright fuchsia, or go bold with pops of dark red blended in with those spring tints and shades. This maintains the pastels we love, but freshens them up with something different. Who’s going to stop you? The pastel police? I don’t think so.

4. It’s not summer just yet.
We’re all guilty of getting a little TOO excited about the warm weather. Yes the sun is shining, but it’s not time for strapless dresses and flip flops quite yet. Especially for a spring wedding, don’t forget the day can be a little chilly and by night you might want to bundle up. The bridal party, including the bride herself, might want to consider something like shrugs, shawls, or wraps. It’s better to be safe than sorry. You don’t want people thinking, “I’m cold” when they should be thinking, “Best wedding ever.”

5. Spring-time Inspiration.
There’s so many inspiring features to spring that can be perfectly tied into your seasonal wedding. From invitations, all the way to the gown, spring holds special ideas that can only be effectively used this time of year.
Send a bulb or some flower seeds in your “Save the Dates” as a marker/reminder of your spring wedding. Men, do the unthinkable and wear light-colored suits as opposed to your average all black, or dark formal wear.
Thinking floral headbands? Yes, yes, and yes. Springtime is THE time to whip out those flower wreaths as headbands, and bring a whole new meaning to “flower girl.” And don’t choose one kind of flower, choose a bunch. You have so many options, never feel like you’re limited to one, especially in the blooming springtime.
Spring is all around, and the inspiration coming from nature is endless. Look around yourself, and get creative!
