Oh Snow…Troublesome Spring?

Spring is a great time of year – after spending the majority of Winter under wraps and being faced with dark mornings, dreary afternoons and the night’s drawing in, Spring is when the first sight of colour is seen. Along with the freshness and vibrancy, also comes the unpredictable weather but don’t let that stop you from planning a Spring wedding. Here are some top tips:

Weather

Unpredictable is Spring’s middle name, you never can tell what the weather is going to decide to do from one day to the next, but it is always best to plans for blustery winds, a few April showers, possibly frosty mornings or even snow!

If the Winter side of Spring is around, think of your guests and their needs – perhaps supplying them with pashminas, gloves and scarfs are novel ways to keep the heat in but also provide great wedding favors too! You can also get some fab heart shaped hand warmers that make for a fun novelty pressie!

Open coal fires at you reception can add real warmth as well as looking picture perfect – just keep younger children at bay!

Flowers

Come Spring the list is endless for Flower colours but not always getting the more extravagant flowers, that’s why here at Sarah’s Flowers we can provide the type of flower, you want, all year round and even produce them in the Spring colour of your choice.

Colours

Muted tones are a must, think coral, mint, taupe, baby blues and lavender.  If you’re looking for something a little vivacious, try adding some lush greens and bright yellows!

Food

Spring time brings all kinds of tasty and homely food! Serve your guests Spring lamb with broad beans and asparagus, and pink champers tend to go down really well.

The luxury with Spring time food is that it is lighter than that of Winters stodgy food and the seasonal produce can be a real money saver.

Guestbook

Cherry blossom trees are well known for being a Spring look. Have guests write their messages on delicately cut card and attached to a blossoming tree with ribbon for a romantic take on the more traditional guestbook.
