Picture the scene; it’s a crisp Spring day, and you’re about to say ‘I do’ in front of your nearest and dearest. Sounds perfect, right? An outdoor wedding in Spring is the ideal way to capture those picture-perfect moments surrounded by natural beauty. If you’re considering an outdoor wedding, here are some things to consider to make your day a Spring spectacular.
Embrace All The Colours Of Spring
Outdoor weddings in Spring allows you to incorporate all the pastel and floral shades of the season. Source seasonal blooms for your bouquet, wear a floral-inspired wedding dress and embrace floral bridesmaids dresses to truly embrace the time of year. Incorporating wildflowers into your headpieces, boutonnieres, and bouquets will capture the vibrancy of Spring and create a natural style for your special day.
Use Nature As Your Canvas
You naturally have more space with an outdoor setting and can incorporate tree trunks, flowers, and beautiful backdrops into your decorations. Wind fairy lights around the trunk of a tree, use picnic tables for a rustic outdoor reception, and use that hilltop view as the perfect opportunity for stunning photos. Using natural wood and hanging lights will complement the natural outdoors and create an authentic rustic element to your day.
Keep Dry In Style
The weather cannot scupper an outdoor wedding. Hire a clear tent for some immediate cover and to enjoy the rain through a clear canvas. Providing parasols or umbrellas in wedding colours will also add some elegance to proceedings. Bring a stylish wrap to keep yourself warm, and enjoy the opportunity for some truly unique wedding photos. A moody sky can create a dramatic backdrop for some one-of-a-kind wedding shots.
Endless Photo Opportunities
Whether you’ve got a picturesque bridge, beautiful blooms, or a hilltop hideaway for your photos, take advantage of your full wedding party and get some memorable shots of you and your guests in the great outdoors. Getting married outdoors in Spring also means you have the perfect distractions for your guests while you get whisked away for your couple shoot.
Simple Yet Elegant
The best thing about an outdoor Spring wedding is that nature speaks for itself, so you won’t have to go overboard on your decorations. Elegant floral centrepieces can add some classic culture, while mason jars and fairy lights lend the whole event a rosy rustic glow. Why not extend the same to your wedding cake and go for a naked cake with some floral decor?
Use Your Wedding Cars
As nature provides a broader canvas and stunning setting for you, there’s no reason you shouldn’t incorporate your wedding cars into your photos. Add your florals on top of the car bonnet and ask your photographer for some advice on blending them into the natural setting. If they’re vintage, they’ll slot in particularly perfectly and enhance your wedding shots.
