There are so many reasons we love spring! After what seems like a never-ending winter, the warmer temperatures and spring sunshine are a joy to behold and gardens are transformed with new colour and fragrance. It’s these wonderful things about spring that make it the perfect season for a wedding, along with a whole host of other perks.
#1 Mild Temperatures
While 30-degree heat is great when you’re in a bikini led on the beach, it’s not so great when you’re in a wedding dress or in a three-piece suit. The last thing you want on your wedding day is sweat running down your forehead and ruining your makeup. Spring temperatures are much more temperate and won’t have you or your partner worrying about sweat patches!
#2 Suppliers in Less Demand
Suppliers can be booked up to two years in advance for summer weddings. So it can be challenge securing your prefered photographers, bands and caterers unless you book way in advance. If you’re getting wed in spring, it will be a little easier to secure your favourite suppliers. Plus, with more availability, you could potentially get some discounts too!
#3 In Bloom!
During the spring months, gardens are at their best, flowers and trees are in full bloom – adding an extra dose of charm and romance to your big day. The grounds of your venue will look beautiful, it will be awash with colourful flowers and lush green lawns, you couldn’t wish for a better backdrop for your wedding photos.
#4 Better Wedding Date availability
As with suppliers, churches and venues are booked up to two years in advance, so it can be incredibly difficult to secure your chosen venue on the day you would like, especially if it’s on a weekend. In spring, however, you’ll find it much easier to book your desired dates – especially if you book 12 months in advance. Venues may offer discounts too on certain spring wedding dates – so there’s really nothing to lose!
#5 Alfresco affair
The summer heat, especially in the afternoon, can just be too much. Plus, insects and wasps are everywhere and they will be attracted to food and sweet drinks. In spring temperatures are just right and there aren’t as many pesky wasps around. With the surroundings in full bloom, spring is the perfect season to get married outside.
#6 New Beginnings
Spring is all about new beginnings, rebirth and renewal. There is an optimism in the air and an undeniable feeling of happiness, there is something extra special about getting married during the spring months. It’s the best season to start your next chapter together as a married couple.
#7 Beautiful Bouquets
You are simply spoilt for choice in the spring when it comes to wedding flowers. There are so many beautiful blooms available, narcissi, hyacinths, ranunculus and peonies… to name but a few. In this glorious season, you are guaranteed to find flowers that perfectly match your weddings colour scheme.
