Spring weddings: The Top 5 Reasons to Wed in spring
One of the first things you have to decide when starting to plan your wedding, is when you are going to get married. Have you always dreamt of a winter wonderland or perhaps you considered going somewhere warm and exotic? Here at the Palladium Ring Company we think the best time to get married is spring. And here are our top 5 reasons why:
1. The Weather
One thing we are famous for, us Brits, is our sunny deposition when it comes to the great British weather. Let’s face it, most of the time the weather here isn’t that great but if you hold your wedding in spring you are much more likely to have a sunny day to have some beautiful photographs taken outside. Plus you won’t have to carry a brolly!
Dry weather makes the opportunity to have an outdoor wedding more realistic. Whether a garden wedding, a lakeside ceremony or a beach service, dry weather means you can get back to nature – and hopefully save some money on a venue.
Spring is also the start of the season for many National Trusts or private properties that host weddings. These grand locations are shut over the winter for vital maintenance work and are then reopened around Easter time with their glad rags on.
With spring comes a colour explosion of fresh blooms which makes sourcing your favourite flower much easier. They will probably be cheaper at this time of year too as they will be in-season.
Popular spring blooming flowers include:
• Sweet Peas
• Calla lilies
If you are Welsh then why not have your wedding near St David’s Day (March 1st)? Incorporate the national flower, the daffodil too! Daffodils are popular spring flowers that will add a pop of zingy yellow to your table decorations and put a smile on everyone’s face.
4. Pastel Colours
Pastel colours are synonymous with spring. They’re light, refreshing and often reflect the colours of the wild flowers in bloom. Incorporate these colours into your bridesmaids’ dresses to be on season. Plus, they suit most skin colours so there won’t be any arguments.
Blush and dusky pinks are set to be a big trend in spring 2014! Or you could follow floral trends and opt for sky blues or periwinkle.
5. New Life
Spring is a time of new birth and new starts. Flowers blossom all around us, baby lambs are born and chicks begin to hatch. Arrange your wedding for this season and give it a symbolic resonance of starting a new stage in your life and relationship, at a time when new life blossoms.
Have we convinced you that spring is the ideal time to get married? Well spring has begun for this year so get saving and start planning for next year – the countdown begins now!
