Planning a Spring Outdoor Wedding

Hint, hint – factor in a tent for your spring reception. They are wonderful rain or shine and add to the ambiance of the event without a doubt.

Every bride dreams of having an outdoor wedding, and the spring is the beginning of the perfect season to host a wedding or reception outside.

Spring colors may be soft and pastel, with summer themes vibrant and bold, but holding your wedding outdoors allows for color schemes that are also closely associated with nature. Foods may include seasonal fruits and vegetables, and flowers that are in season.

Don’t forget the music. Many brides opt for a more laid back pianist or jazz band, embracing the season. Themes may include garden, flowers or beach themes.

Centerpieces trends are also changing, which can create some unique color tones and textures. Centerpieces also change the feel of the tables, while mixing round and square tables can add interesting variety. Vase fillers such as seashells, crystals, beads, or fresh vegetables or fruits such as lemons and limes fit the season nicely as well.

Evening weddings utilizing candlelight bring a gorgeous ambiance to any occasion.

This spring, bring your wedding a unique spark that incorporates the beauty of the outdoors.
