Wedding season each year officially kicks off as the flowers are blooming and the weather is breaking. If you plan to be an early spring bride or groom, you will be tasked specifically with finding a ceremony and reception space that will work for the weather. An early spring wedding means that the weather will be cool and possibly still wet. Here are a few ideas and themes that any wedding party can use for the perfect introduction to spring in wedded bliss.
Early Spring Themes
1. A Winter Paradise Theme
If the last signs of winter are still holding on and there is still a small blanket of snow on the ground, take advantage of this for your wedding. Host your wedding inside, but incorporate the outside with a winter paradise theme. Use the contrast of the deep blue sky and the white snow in your wedding colors. For decoration, utilize glow stick icicles for the ballroom and at each table for lighting. For flowers, consider the use of branches and evergreens as decorations to match the look of the shortly passed holiday season.
Use Your Favorite Spring Elements As Decorations
If you would prefer simplistic decorations, you and your future spouse should select two elements of spring that you each love. Whether it be the color of the leaves, the newly budding branches, or the dew that you spot on flowers, these can be used for your wedding decorations. At each table, put together the four chosen elements, strung together with a silk ribbon in your signature wedding shade.
2. Hat And Glove Formal
If you are intent on having an outside ceremony during the early spring, have a hat and glove formal. In the wedding invitations include that guests are to wear their best formal hat, gloves, and coat for the outside wedding. Be sure to have covered seating so that any snow or dew does not affect the chairs.
Muffs And Misty Lighting
Wear your own luxurious coat on the outside of your wedding garments and use a muff with flowers situated on the outside to keep your hands and arms warm. For an added winter glow, use pillar candles to light the ceremony, especially if the sky is cloudy or if snow is still falling. Place tall electronic pillar candles at the end of each row of seats, so that the way down the aisle is lit for the wedding party. At the altar, have pillar candles surrounding the backdrop of the space for the couple.
3. Paint The Sky With Love Theme
The only thing that can rival the beautiful look of a bride on her day is the beauty of the colors in the sky during the early spring. As the weather changes over to another season, the sky will show undeniably gorgeous hues of purple, red, and blue. Bring these colors down to earth by using a sky theme at your wedding.
Use Royal Blue To Light Pink Ombre Effect
If you love color and you want to use the full range of early spring shades, go with a deep, royal blue and select several shades in between, such as:
– cherry blossom
– Tiffany blue
End at the light pink shade that you typically see in the sky upon the first sunrise. Since roses and other flowers may not be yet in bloom, have silk flowers specially made with the ombre effect for your wedding. For the wedding party, have each bridesmaid wear a dress of a different shade, starting from deep blue to a rose pink shade. Match the groomsmen in the same manner with their shirts and boutonnieres. For the reception, have curtains dyed to match the ombre effect of the dresses and flowers to pull the sky effect inside.
For a wedding that celebrates the entry into spring, a renewal of beauty theme will bring about feelings of joy. Booking your wedding at your top choice hotel and reserving an interior and exterior space and tying in the season, will really add to the beauty of an early spring wedding.
