It’s been a wintery few months but we are finally ready for spring, and what better time to have a wedding than spring? We can think of plenty of reasons to have your wedding in spring.
1/ The Flowers
Spring is the perfect time for wedding flowers because there are so many beautiful blooms in season. From dahlias and sweet peas to peonies and poppies. Spring is all about flowers and not just for your bouquets. Floral gowns are great for spring weddings, either with patterns or prints. We can’t think of anything more romantic.
2/ Pastel Colour Scheme
We adore pastel colour schemes and there is no better time for them than in spring. The bright, soft colours reflect the bright, floral feel of the season. Anything from pastel bridesmaids to blush brides, a pastel colour scheme is so romantic.
3/ Garden Wedding
We know Ireland doesn’t always lend itself to the finest weather, but if the day holds up, spring is the perfect time for a fabulous garden wedding for spring wedding. It’s also now possible for couples to get married outdoors as well as enjoy their reception outdoors. There are plenty of fabulous venues in Ireland to have a gorgeous outdoor spring wedding.
4/ Off-Peak Time
If you decide to get married in early spring, there are some extra benefits. Most venues have different packages for off-peak times, which usually include the winter months right up until March or April, which means you can reap the benefits and put a little extra money elsewhere.
5/ Get in Before The Crowds
An early spring wedding means you’re probably one of the first of your group to get married for the year, which means your friends and family will actually be looking forward to your wedding. There will also most likely be more availability in early spring than summer.
6/ What Spring Symbolises
Spring is a particularly lovely time to get married because of what spring means. Spring is a time for rebirth, for new beginnings, and for brighter days. What a perfect way to celebrate your wedding and your new life together as a married couple?
7/ Better Wedding Gifts
Believe it or not you’re a bit more likely to get some better wedding presents when you get married in early spring. After ‘dry’ January is over, people have more money to send again, but it hasn’t yet hit summer so guests aren’t bogged down with expenses from holidays and other weddings.
8/ Guests Are in Higher Spirits
Guests, in general, are in higher spirits at a spring wedding because they’re coming out of winter hibernation and the days are getting brighter, which puts everyone in a better mood. Like we said, good weather isn’t always guaranteed but everyone is always in better form in spring than in summer anyway.
9/ Better Weather (Sometimes)
Again, good weather doesn’t necessarily adhere to the seasons, especially in Ireland but you will fare a lot better in spring for dry days and maybe even a bit of warmth and sunshine. If you don’t get sunshine, don’t worry, the best natural light for photographs is a cloudy day.
10/ Longer, Brighter Days
After months of darkness falling at 4pm, spring is a welcome change and even at this time of year, we’re already seeing a great stretch in the evenings. Anything that keeps your wedding day bright is always a good thing. It’s a long day and you want as much of that as possible to be bright before night fully falls.
