Spring Wedding Invitations
Once you’ve decided the date and time of the wedding ceremony, and booked the venue, choose those wedding invitations and get them printed as soon as possible. You’ve already selected your color theme, so get your invitations in the same color. Have all your information and phrases written in elegant Victorian text as it gives the invitations a formal and beautiful look. Don’t add extra information as that will spoil the simplicity of the wordings. Decorate the spring wedding invitations with ribbons or bows to make them attractive and artistic.
Outdoor Spring Wedding Ideas
Preferably try to have an outdoor wedding since this is the best time of nature’s beauty. You can opt for gardens, lawns, lake-sides, mountain feet or even beach weddings. Outdoor locations give enough space for our guests to move around and a larger space for the dance floor as well as the food tables. An early evening wedding which fades into dinner and dance by the night is the best you could settle for. Afternoons are not a great choice for outdoors as it may get hot and uncomfortable for your guests.
Spring Wedding Dresses and Flowers
Whatever your color scheme for the wedding is, make sure the wedding dresses for the wedding are well co-ordinated and styled. The Maid of Honor and the Bridesmaid dresses should be different as they look good when there is variety. Keep them simple but because of the color, they should look attractive. Bring the best wedding gown you can get and go for satin ones with big trials. The best wedding flowers can be calla lilies, tiger lilies, roses, carnations, gerberas, orchids, etc. You can have them co-ordinated too for the bouquets, wedding centerpieces and the other decorations. Since it is spring, these flowers come cheap and you get discounts for seasons too. These can be some cheap spring wedding ideas for you if you’re on a budget!
Spring Wedding Menu
Another thing you have to make sure about for these spring wedding ideas is the menu for the guests. You can have chicken for the appetizers and fish for the main course. Salmon is the most preferred for weddings but you can opt for many other choices too. Shrimp and lobsters can also be considered though they get quite messy while eating. Soups and chocolate cake for desert is also a must for the meal. Fruits like strawberries, oranges, apricots, etc can be accompanied with the salads served. Well, the drinks at every wedding have include wine and champagne, but you could have cocktails for the light drinkers as well. To end the evening you can have wedding favors or thank you cards for your guests but that is completely your choice. More on wedding catering.
