Seasonal Wedding Tips – Planning Your Spring Wedding
It’s that time of the year again, when we all emerge from hibernation, blinking in the weak rays of an unfamiliar sun. It is also the time of the year when those planning a Spring wedding begin to lose their minds in the build-up to the big event! Well, don’t panic, www.my-weddinginsurance.co.uk is here to offer you some vital tips for planning your perfect Spring nuptials.
Be prepared for the worst
Let’s face it, British weather from March to May can be relied upon for its notorious unpredictability. As much as you don’t want the climate to have an effect on your ceremony, you have to be realistic and factor it in as a strong possibility. Most people hedge their bets and just plump for an indoor venue, but then you risk missing the opportunity to take advantage on the rare occasion that the weather is clement. Look at venues that offer both options. Large patios or conservatory areas are another good way to soak up the unexpected warmth and for venues with the room, look at the possibility of marquee hire, to protect outdoor revellers from periodic April showers.
Not quite as popular as Summer weddings but venues and suppliers for Spring weddings will still get booked up fast – so act quickly! If you are struggling to find caterers or florists available then ask your venue, they will quite often have a preferred supplier list. Also, we are lucky to enjoy a number of Bank Holidays throughout Spring, so use them! Don’t be afraid of a Sunday wedding and the bonus days off also give you the opportunity to plan a two-day event, with an informal cheaper second day, and may make it easier for your guests who have to travel from further away.
Give Mother Nature a great big hug! The whole country is in bloom, bring the outside in and fill your venue with seasonal British flowers. Head outdoors, become one with nature, and take your photos amongst the daffodils and forget-me-nots. Take advantage of fresh local produce; seasonal Spring vegetables are amongst the tastiest. Fill your plates with kale, baby asparagus, new potatoes and spring greens. Salmon or lamb are great seasonal stars of the show!
Soft floral or pastel colour schemes, packets of seedlings as wedding favours, pink wellies and brollies for guests. We all know what the recent trends have been for Spring weddings. Don’t be afraid to buck these stereotypes and do something completely original that your guests will remember for a long time. There are such a wide range of innovative and unique suppliers now, that you can tailor your wedding to reflect you and your partner’s individuality.
