Happy Spring!

We are so excited the weather is finally warming up, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and most importantly, wedding season is here! Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year to get hitched. Here are some tips on how to embrace what the season has to offer.

Be bold!
Spring colors are usually associated with warm, tranquil, romantic pastels; however, according to Pantone’s report out last fall, this year you’ll see a lot of pastels mixed with bright, bold hues. So why not add a pop of color to your big day?

Look for the flowers that are in season
Save some money and get some beautiful blooms by going with the flowers that are in season. Ask your florist for suggestions or check out this super helpful guide which breaks down the seasonable flowers by month.

Don’t let it rain on your parade
We’ve all heard the saying, April Showers Bring May Flowers…but showers on your wedding day? While it may be good luck to have rain on your big day, it’s always best to be prepared! If rain is in the forecast and your ceremony or reception will be taking place outside, consider renting a tent and if you’re planning to take photos outside, be sure to have a back up indoor option.

Once you’ve made sure your guests are covered, buy a cute umbrella, some colorful rain boots and smile; after all, you are marrying the love of your life!
