Oh, the Spring Weather
If we are getting married in spring, it goes without saying that at least one part of it is going to happen outside.
As we all know, spring means all sorts of weather. The dance that winter and summer tend to do this time of year can get pretty silly. It would be best if you had a plan B: a tent or an indoor section of the wedding venue. Elaborate further by having umbrellas, parasolsand fans lying around. On the bright side, they can be as colorful as you want them to be.
A lot depends on the area where the wedding takes place and what springs over there are like. Imagine an average spring day and decide how to prepare for it. For instance, they say that Houston is a perfect springtime city. It would be a shame not to use this benefit. If you have the privilege, go for this wedding venue in Houston that has it all covered.
In case of rain or mud, having Wellington boots in different sizes and colors is a solution. Otherwise, let your guests know in advance how to prepare.
That’s where it gets exciting and fun.
So, you are outside on a beautiful spring day, all happy and excited. Your friends and family are there, and everybody is spring intoxicated. It’s very hard to resist it. Nature works for you. As far as the aesthetics go, you can do pretty much anything.
Flowers are everywhere. They are blooming at such a crazy rate, and you can find them the moment you step outside your home. They are also cheap. Don’t be afraid to use the flowers you can find in an uncultivated field. They are gorgeous and decorative. You have pansies, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, bluebellsand others at your disposal. Beautiful on their own, but mixed, they do magic. Lavender makes everyone feel cozy and homely. Top it off with some garden roses, and this might be all you need.
Try not to be too neat and tidy. Let the flower arrangements be a bit disorderly and free. Furthermore, ask the wedding venue not to mawn the aisle.
Prepare lots of flower hair wreaths and hand them out to anyone who feels like wearing one. Have one yourself.
The color pattern on decoration could imitate the colors of the flowers you used, but it does not have to.Pink, yellow, purple, green in all shades, light blue, etc. are all acceptable. Choose a broad spectrum and use it everywhere, starting from wedding invitations to isle, cake, and bridesmaids’ dresses.
Take your grandma’s old wooden basket to the venue, even if it has holes. You’ll use it one way or another.
In a word, the style of your wedding should be rustic or bohemian. Feel free to combine the two and top it off with a bit of romance and natural beauties.
Your dress should be nothing other than that: swaying and light. It is perfectly acceptable to have a knee-long dress as well.
It does not necessarily need to be white, either. Or keep it white, but flower printed.
Foods and Drinks
Keep in mind that spring is when we start trying to lose weight for the upcoming summer. Everyone will appreciate the light, low-calorie food and drinks.
There will still be a variety of drinks for your guests to choose from. For some help completing the drink menu, visit this page.
It’s been a long, pale winter. We long for colors, and this refers to food, as well. Keep it light and go for as much seasonal fruits and veggies as you can. It shouldn’t be a difficult task. Go through this elaborate list of fruits and vegetables to savor in spring.
Different types of nuts and cheese will make the perfect combo.
The spring fever, good vibes, light food and time spent outdoors might energize your guests just enough to want to keep celebrating. Don’t deprive them of this and let the party continue under a tent or at the indoor part of the venue throughout the night.
When it comes to marrying your loved one, every season is the right season. No weather can diminish the feelings you have for one another.
However, having Nature on your side on such a massive project is priceless. It helps a lot, but doesn’t steal the show.
Break out from the winter majestically and celebrate your marriage ceremony and Nature with your guests.
Your wedding is a natural thing.
