What is the most important question you need to answer after saying “Yes, I will marry you!”? Your wedding date and time of year you will be getting married, of course!
One of the very first things you do when planning a wedding is picking a date. While all seasons offer something unique and special, if you’ve chosen spring, you’re in for a treat. With the weather getting warmer and the flowers starting to bloom, spring is the perfect time for new beginnings. Whether you’re in the early stages of planning or further down the road, here are the top 3 things to keep in mind when planning your spring wedding.
Between Easter, Memorial Day, and spring break, choosing a wedding date that doesn’t fall on a holiday can be a little tricky. If you’re a destination wedding, it could be convenient to have your wedding on a holiday weekend (as long as you invite your guests at least half a year in advance) so they can use their extra vacation days to travel. That’s what I did when I got married in Punta Cana during Memorial Day weekend!
Regardless of whether you are planning a destination wedding or not, once you’ve finalized the details it’s time to get the word out to give your guests plenty of time to save the date. This means sending your wedding invites as soon as possible, and this is key, with an RSVP date for them to let you know if they can make it.
You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers. With that in mind, it’s super important to consider where you’re getting married and what kind of weather you should be expecting. If you’re dreaming of an outdoor wedding, not all hope is lost! You can have the best of both worlds with a rainproof tent waiting on the sidelines as a backup plan. I was a super lucky bride since my wedding day was the only one that didn’t rain during our entire stay at Punta Cana! But you’ll have a beautiful wedding anyway as long as your venue and photographer have a backup plan.
When we think of spring, our minds usually go to flowers but it’s also the best time to get a good deal on food! With fresh new fruits and vegetables, think about what’s in season as you pick out your spring wedding menu. Things that are at their peak will cost a lot less, especially if they’re grown locally (this includes flowers).
