Having a hard time choosing the right season for your wedding? You are not alone. Many brides struggle with the decision because there are advantages and disadvantages associated with all four seasons.
But if you are here, it means you are probably considering spring as the best time for you to tie the knot.
To help you fully decide on a spring wedding, we will give you answers to questions like why have a spring wedding? Is spring a good time to get married? What do you serve at a spring wedding? And what time should a spring wedding start?
Is spring a good time to get married?
There is no good or bad time to have a wedding. You can have your wedding in the winter, spring, summer, or fall, and it could be a complete success or failure, depending on how well you’ve planned yourself.
So what makes springtime special? Why have a spring wedding as opposed to having one in the other seasons? Well, here are three compelling reasons:
Spring is the season of rebirth, new beginnings. Since a wedding also represents the beginning of a new chapter in your life as a couple, then this is the perfect time for you to get married.
Everything is springing back to life, gardens, flowers, you name it, which can serve as beautiful backdrops for your wedding pictures.
The temperature is very ideal during spring. It’s a perfect balance between the cold of winter and the intensely scorching summer sun.
What do you serve at a spring wedding?
Your menu should embrace the season in every aspect, from appetizers to cocktails. A spring menu should be light and fresh. A healthy menu filled with fruits and veggies such as asparagus, rainbow carrots, avocados is more ideal during this season.
Serve up the main course with dishes made using fresh herbs such as mint for flavor. An ideal protein to serve for the main course would be lamb with seasoned vegetables.
The beverages should be refreshing. You could serve up signature cocktails with botanical infusions garnished with edible flowers or seasonal fruits.
What time should a spring wedding start?
It is always advisable to start your wedding 2.5-3 hours before sunset. If sunset is at 7:30 pm, your ceremony should start at 4:30 pm, giving you time for a first look and incredible sunset photos.
