Planning a Spring Wedding: Ways to Tie the Knot with the Season

Whether your idea of a perfect spring wedding involves a casual family gathering at your backyard or a grand wedding at an elegant local country club, it is vital that you start planning for it as soon as possible. The best thing that you can probably do is to hire a personal wedding planner or maybe get a New York wedding florist to help you make that dream wedding come to life.

Things you need to consider:
• The Prom Factor. May and June are probably the prime months for JS Proms. Make sure you find a venue and secure your transportation as early as possible.
• Daylight Savings Time. Check the date for DST when planning a sunset outdoor ceremony and reception.
• Weather. The weather during spring time can be highly unpredictable. A sunny and warm Friday can bring about a rainy and cold Saturday. Make sure you prepare for both extremes.

Wedding Invitations
For invitations and stationery, add a little spring motif like a butterfly or tulip to go with the season. You can use paper or inks that match spring time colors such as greens, pastels and etc. Be creative, fun and whimsical. Use flirty fonts for a festive spring celebration. You can also add sprinkles of silk flowers inside each envelope.

Wedding Venue
Take advantage of the budding leaves and beautiful flowers in botanical gardens, mansions with lush green grounds and courtyards. If an outdoor isn’t possible, you can select an indoor venue with a breathtaking outside views affording a bright airy ambience and lots of sunshine.

When choosing a color palette, you can go for white and greens for a garden setting. Yellow and green can also be a fresh choice. If you want to look preppy, you can choose hot pink combined with green or mango. Be creative with your patterns. You can do Swiss dots & stripes, eyelet lace or even polka dots.

Wedding Flower Arrangements
Seasonal blooms would include calla lilies, daffodils, magnolias, gardenias, hydrangeas, tulips and cherry blossoms. Choose among the wedding flower arrangements available online. Place arrangements in containers like watering cans, wicker baskets, teapots and urns.

Serve ham or lamb for the main dish coupled with fresh natural fruit and vegetable produce. A spring menu probably calls for champagne. Create a champagne cocktail or a batch of mimosas for a wedding in the morning.

A horse drawn carriage makes a perfect fitting finale for a spring wedding.

Wedding Flower Ideas for the Seasons

Wedding flowers always play a huge impact in the overall look of a wedding celebration whether at church or at the reception area. Weddings are never complete without the flowers’ aesthetic touch.

Here are a few wedding flower arrangements that you can come in handy when planning for your big day. You can also suggest these ideas to your NYC wedding florist.

Love the Vibrant Colors of Summer
Brace yourself for a warm and sunny wedding filled with the bright colors of summer inspired outdoors. Try to go bright and bold with your color palette choices. You can try fuschia and mango or go for something deep red and hot pink. If you would want to go for a beach wedding, try the seaside colors- aqua with a tinge of beige, white or peach. Light up the reception venue with lanterns and torches to make it even more romantic. You can also go natural when it comes to wedding centerpieces and incorporate fruits such as oranges, lemons and limes to your wedding flower arrangements. Create a warm ambience by choosing abundant summer blooms such as peonies, sunflowers, daisies, zinnias, dahlias, hydrangea and roses. If you want to create an airy and breezy look for your outdoor wedding, you can try roses, calla lilies, stephanotis, daisies and snowball mums with a touch of blue hydrangeas.

A Glamorous Fall Wedding
For autumn weddings, you can go and blend with nature’s colors such as red, brown, orange, yellow and rust. Jewel tones can create an interesting twist to your traditional wedding scheme. You can also add metallic mixes (copper, bronze, and gold) to your color scheme. Incorporate some popular autumn harvest to your wedding flower arrangements such as apples, cranberries and pears. Add in the touch of nature by putting on some leaves, sprays of wheat and even acorns to your wedding flowers.

A Surreal Winter Wedding
For your color palette, go for white and creams with accents of gold or silver. You can also opt for a winter sparkle and go for ice blue with a touch of silver tones. Deck your wedding halls with adorning linens and sprinkle fake snow on table tops. You can decorate with pine branches, wreaths, poinsettias, bells and white lights to go with the holiday season.

Tulip-filled Spring Wedding
For garden weddings, it would be nice to go with the colors green and white, green and yellow or make it preppy with pink and green. Go with playful patterns such as Swiss dots, stripes, eyelet lace, gingham and polka dots. Make your spring flower arrangements unique by putting them in simple containers like teapots, urns and watering cans.
