13 Reasons A Spring Wedding Is Right For You That Will Leave You Totally Sprung
If you live for peonies, your perfect palette is lights and neutrals, and your favorite cocktails span from floral to herbal — you may already have your reasons a spring wedding is right for you. Of course, if you're newly in the stages of wedding planning or if you're completely lost about when to plan your big day, there's a lot to consider when finding the perfect season for your wedding. "A number of factors play into selecting the perfect season for your wedding," Owner and Lead Planner, ofHummingbird Bridal and Events, Mandy Connor, tells Elite Daily. "Personal preference for temperature, foliage and attire may be the number one factor but of course, availability of venues and overall budget also play a large role in selecting the perfect season."
If you've found the perfect spring dress or your ideal menu includes spring produce — picking a spring wedding may fall into place around your personal preferences. And if you're clear on your budget and wedding location, choosing a season may come down to vender availability.
If you're still on the fence about when to tie the knot, here are 13 reasons a spring wedding could be right for you.
1. You Like Wide Open Spaces
If your perfect day includes gardens, greens, or natural views — spring may be the perfect time to get hitched. While spring weather can often be a little unpredictable, a spring wedding can mean beautiful tents, covered bridges, or dreamy gazebos. The warmer weather can allow for the ceremony and reception to take place outside, giving you and your guests space to mingle and dance.
2. You're Planning The Day Around The Dress
Spring is warm, but not too hot and potentially comes with a light breeze, which means you can literally wear anything. From sleeves to sleeveless to jumpsuits to full-on gowns, a spring wedding can be planned around the perfect wedding outfit.
3. You're Ballin' On A Budget (Or Just Love A Deal)
While spring flowers may mean some surprise showers, according to Connor, a spring wedding may be the perfect solution to balling on a budget. "Winter and Spring tend to have less desirable weather but vendor availability and overall wedding costs during these seasons are significantly easier to plan for," Connor says. "Additionally, hotels and venues often offer discounted pricing during these quieter months."
4. Spring Fashion Is Your Friend
If you like to layer, if you love lights and neutral, or if you just want to give your guests the gift of variety, a spring wedding may be it. Dressing for spring can mean literally anything goes. Guests are less likely to have to factor in major weather like heat waves or snow, and have full range of color, style, and texture. Not to mention NYFW just happened so everyone is feeling #inspired.
5. Weddings Vendors Have More Availability.
If you know you want lots of little food stands, an eight-piece swing band, a photo booth, and floral crowns for your whole wedding party — your dream wedding may depend on a number of wedding vendors. According to Connor, spring may be the best time to secure your ideal wedding. "While Summer and Fall create loads of competition in securing vendors and venues, you'll have your pick of vendors and venues during this quieter season," Connor says.
6. Everything Is In Bloom
With plants, trees, greens, and flowers all around — spring is the time for blooming, blossoming, and coming alive. There's a naturally romantic aroma in the air, coupled with breath-taking views, and loads of new life. With everything in bloom, it's a perfect time to say "I do!"
7. People Are Generally Around
Unlike summer or winter, spring generally isn't a major vacay time, and doesn't hit too many major holidays. If you want to make sure all your friends and fam' are there for your big day, a spring time date may provide more "YES" on your RSVPs. And in spring, you can stress less about getting your "Save The Date's," and invitations out way in advance, as your guests' general availability is probably higher.
8. You're A Floral Queen
If you dream of your own floral crown, dreamy floral arrangements, or a pack of flower girls as big as your "bride squad," a spring wedding may be right up your floral alley. "There are great options for seasonal flowers during these months so you have your pick of all of the best floral options," Connor says.
9. You Love Neutrals/Light Colors (& Of Course, Pastels)
If you see your bridesmaids in dreamy light blues, dainty grays or tans, or preppy pastels — the spring color palette may set the stage for your dream wedding. From lights and neutrals, to fun blossoming colors, spring can take many shades.
10. #Good #Lighting
Though the higher chances of rain may bring you down, the higher chances of cloud coverage may make you choose a spring date immediately. Cloud coverage can make for amazing lighting for pictures from #selfies to posed family pics to the not-so-candid-candids you and your new spouse will "Awww" at for years to come.
11. Your Signature Cocktails Can Be Cool and Cute
If you like it minty, floral, herbal, or even a little spicy a spring cocktail menu can really hit the spot. From juleps to sangrias to white wine cocktails, a spring drink menu can be cool and refreshing while still packing some major color and herbal flavors.
12. Spring Produce, Baby
From artichoke to avocado, and garlic to potatoes, spring produce is some of the freshest and tastiest there is. If you and your boo are major foodies, a spring wedding may be the perfect place to showcase your love — among a four-course to-die-for meal.
13. Daylight Savings
If you're thinking a day time wedding or if you want to make sure you have time for all your pictures spring means more day light. Whether you want to bask in the sunshine, or you just need it to be light out until everyone is dresses and camera ready, a post-daylight savings wedding can make all the lighting difference.
When it comes to planning your wedding, from food to colors to the perfect date, you get to choose what's right for you. But if you can't stop thinking about amazing flowers, fresh cocktails, and dreamy colors, spring may be the perfect time to say "I do!"
