Yes, summer is known as ‘wedding season’, and there are a few reasons for that, however, there is a new trend popping up of getting married in the Spring. The slightly cooler, less busy time of year that will allow you your pick of vendors, and some gorgeous natural backgrounds. Still undecided? Check out these perks of having a Spring wedding!

1. Everything is in full bloom:

Fresh spring flowers will be blooming, and who doesn’t want flowers everywhere on their big day? Picture lush bouquets of peonies, branches of cherry blossoms and fresh floral crowns for everyone. If flowers aren’t your thing, opt for soft moss, herbs and greenery.

2. Spring has the best wedding colours:

Spring is the time of pastels, also known as the colours that everyone looks great in. Your maids will look gorgeous in colours like pistachio, pale pink, and robin’s egg blue.

3. Spring produce is awesome:

You can incorporate colorful fresh spring produce such as asparagus, sugar snap peas, baby carrots, strawberries and apricots into your big day. Think a strawberry and basil gin and tonic for your signature cocktail or a delicious seasonal meal.

4. Venues and vendors are less in demand:

Summer remains the most popular season to get married which means that vendors are going to be more in demand than in other seasons. Having your wedding during a less busy time will ensure you get your pick of vendors. On the venue side, some venues offer a discount if you choose to get married during a less popular time of year.

5. There aren’t as many holidays/vacations to work around:

When planning a wedding, you want to make sure that you keep in mind major holidays and the vacations of close family and friends. In the spring there are less holidays and people are not usually on vacation yet, so you will have more availability than in the busier times of year.

BONUS: Temperature is perfect:

The weather in the spring is often almost perfect. It’s not too hot, and not too cold. Your guests won’t freeze to death in their cocktail dresses and you also won’t have to worry about people getting heat stroke. You can be safe with planning your big day in a tent and are almost guaranteed to have beautiful outdoor photos.

There you have it. It’s time to say ‘move over’ to summer and welcome in the fresh new wedding season. Happy Planning!
