Being a company who specialise in wedding venue dressing we know that summer may be thought of as the most popular season to get married in, but spring is known as the season of hope which is just one of the reasons that we think it is the perfect time to say ‘I Do!’. After all, in spring the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining (well, we can all keep our fingers crossed for that last one!). Although spring does have many things going for it, there can also be some potential pitfalls to be mindful of as well, and so in this blog post, we have outlined some ways to prepare for a spring wedding to make it a day that everyone will remember for all the right reasons!
Be Weather Prepared
Living in the UK means that one of the things we always say to our couples is be prepared for the unpredictable weather – whatever time of year you are getting married, but particularly in the spring. If you are braving the elements and planning to get married outside, then it may be a good idea to find an indoor area that you could use as a back-up. Having an indoor-outdoor venue will be the best idea in case those famous April showers decide to make an appearance.
Double Duty Decorations
If you are having an event or a wedding outdoors in the springtime, then when you are thinking about wedding venue dressing you should consider using umbrellas and cute buckets as decorative pieces that can be used in case of emergency. Investing in some umbrellas in the same colour as the event theme, and placing them in a pretty vintage watering can or rustic silver bucket will bring a smile to your guest’s lips while also being practical. Your day will still look exactly the way you want it to, but you will have things on hand to help your guests if it suddenly starts pouring down.
Don’t Just Think Pastels
When considering wedding venue dressing for spring, it is so easy to plump for pastel pinks and lilacs, but don’t be afraid to think outside the box and use different colours to these. We have seen navy mixed with white and light beige and also deep purples and berries being used for spring weddings – and both of these colour choices look great. Of course, rose gold is the ‘it’ colour this year, so this may also be a great choice for you as well.
Mix Blooms & Greenery
Using blooms that are in season is always a popular option, but recently we have started to see a lot more greenery being used. This could be because it is a great way to cut down on costs, but it also helps to bring that outdoor feeling inside and really allows you to embrace the feeling of nature. A great way to add some greenery when dressing venue is to use a long green garland as a runner on a rectangular table – not forgetting to add some colour with a few carefully placed flowers.
Keep it Casual
A lot of spring weddings are now being planned with a more casual approach to attire in mind. If you think about it, formal wear and very dressy looks would look a little out of place outside, and so keeping things whimsical, and fun may be the way to go. It is a good idea to let guests know on the invite that the wedding is outdoors and that more casual dress is acceptable so that they know what to wear and don’t come in stiletto heels that will get them stuck in the grass!
