Spring is finally here and, just like nature, we are the ones that are being awakened, too. It’s finally time to say goodbye to the tediously cold and dark winter and say hello to sunny weather, happy thoughts and new plans. While we’re on the subject of new plans, we must mention that spring is the most popular time for life-changing events such as weddings. There’s no more beautiful wedding than a spring wedding. Everything is so colorful and joyous, it’s the perfect time to show your love to the world and vow for eternity that it will not cease.
Once you’ve decided that this is your wedding season, it’s time to figure everything else out. Where to start? Where to have the ceremony? What should be the theme? Which dress, decorations and music? The thought alone can give you a headache. This is where we jump in to help you start and prioritize.
The first thing you should do is choose a theme for your wedding and what better suggestion for a spring wedding than flowers? It’s the perfect way to be in sync with nature and everything that’s happening around you. Flowers are always a great option. The theme itself is happy and cheerful and the design options are numerous. Pay special attention to the details. For instance, go nuts with floral crowns, confetti and floral invitations and table decorations. Everything can be covered in flowers.
Another important issue, definitely, is choosing a venue. Depending on the preferences of your significant other and yourself, choose a venue you’ll feel most comfortable at. If you’re the natural types, an outdoor wedding might be perfect for you. Of course, if the weather is nice and if it’s warm enough, it’s an excellent idea. However, since we cannot control the weather and weather forecasts aren’t as precise as we’d want them to be, you can still be bold and decide to go through with the outdoor wedding regardless of weather conditions. It’s a chance to be creative with custom made umbrellas and raincoats.
Let’s face it: the idea of a traditional wedding dress is classic, but also a bit boring. Why not try something new and different? It’s your wedding, you get to make the decisions, so why wouldn’t you go with your instincts and desires instead of honoring tradition or other people’s wishes? In that respect, you can dazzle everyone with your amazing wedding kaftan. Long or short, solid or multi colored, with designs that are guaranteed to blow your mind, you can absolutely find something that you’ll simply adore. What’s more, you can become a real trendsetter, not to mention that you’ll have other opportunities to wear it other than the actual wedding.
When choosing the perfect band, you need to think about others and not just yourselves. It’s a pity that you and your spouse-to-be are into punk-rock when your wedding will be attended by your grandmas, aunts, uncles, etc. You need to make sure your guests enjoy the wedding. Yes, this day certainly is about you, but it’s also about making your guests happy. You want everything to be perfect and the atmosphere, whose main contributor is the music, is the key to achieving this goal. So, get to it and be very careful, make sure there’s a little something for everyone’s ears.
Apart from the actual big things such as seating charts, music and venue, the actual devil is in the details. Numerous weddings have had excellent music, food and other important things, but there was a reason why the whole thing seemed a bit bland. Those reasons are exactly this – the details. When you’re planning a wedding, you need to make sure everything is taken care of, starting from the big things down to the tiniest little detail hardly anyone will notice. It may seem strange, but it’s the only way for your wedding to be complete. So, pay attention to napkins and the way they’re folded, the balloons, how and where you take photos, your own jewelry, invitations, envelopes, as well as window ornaments, curtains and what not. Start early enough and you’ll be able to figure all this out.
Regardless of what kind of wedding you choose, it will surely be lovely. Spring wedding are always regarded more highly than all others, probably because everyone is much happier than usually given that winter has just finished and everyone’s full of energy. This should take the pressure off and help you start planning that amazing wedding of yours. Good luck!
