Ah, spring. It is that time of the year when the flowers are blossoming and blooming in their most exquisite colors and hues. It is that magical season when you can touch the rainbow with the tips of your fingers, warming you up inside and comforting you in ways you cannot explain.
For some couples, this is the perfect time to get married. Spring weddings have always had this magical and romantic appeal that makes them all the more enchanting.
Although winter has just started, weddings are better when planned ahead. This is the perfect time to start plotting out ideas and seeking recommendations and suggestions from friends and relatives. This will also give you enough time to figure out what you really want for your big day.
Keep on reading to learn more about how to have the perfect spring wedding. Don’t forget to take down notes and you are well on your way to your dream wedding.
1) Find A Cozy Venue
Although this season is not as cold as winters or as hot as summers, spring can also have its fair share of heat waves, rain, and other unexpected weather fluctuations. To make sure that you as well as your guests will be comfortable on this very special day, consider picking a cozy venue.
If you decide on an outdoor wedding, be sure to have it in a shady place and have fans on standby. There’s nothing like sweaty irritated guests, right? You need to make sure your guests are as comfortable as possible.
On the other hand, if you decide on an indoor wedding, consider the size of the place. You would not want to stuff too many people in a very narrow place with little room to breathe. Take into account the band, tables, chairs, guests, food, decor and everything that may take up space before booking a venue.
2) Hire a Wedding Planner
Although weddings may seem simple in certain cases, wedding preparations are very stressful and complicated. It takes up so much time and effort to come up with the perfect ceremony.
Have your beauty rest and save yourself from the stress that comes with all the nitty-gritty of wedding coordination and preparation by hiring a professional wedding planner. However, make sure that in choosing your wedding planner you consider these two things: compatibility and experience.
It is important that you build a trusting and harmonious relationship with your wedding planner. Wedding planners should be both professional and easy to deal with, notes Ariel Chiu, Vancouver-based owner of Wonderstruck Events. This ensures that you and your dream wedding will be exactly as you want it to be.
3) Comfort Over Fashion
It is undeniable, everybody wants to look their best on their wedding day. However, comfort should always be the priority, especially for a very important event like this.
You do not have to compromise your comfort when choosing your wedding attire. As spring tends to have clear and sunny days and cool nights, what you wear should be guided by the time of your wedding.
If the wedding ceremony will be held during the sunny daytime, try choosing wedding attire that is both light and airy. On the other hand, if the wedding ceremony will be held during the cool spring night, try layering up and consider longer and thicker fabrics. You can also accessorize accordingly with a cute jacket or even a cape.
And so, much like the way we plan and dress for the seasons, so too should we prepare for the weather conditions that spring brings. It is during this season that we find ourselves suspended in between two extremes, and it is in times such as this that balance becomes of utmost importance. Don’t let the weather ruin your big day — plan in advance and remember to enjoy every moment!
