Planning the perfect date for your wedding can be very stressful! There are so many details to consider, and many due to weather concerns. Will it be too cold for a winter wedding or what about rain in the spring? Let’s not forget our Southern humidity during the summer.
While there are pros to every season, early spring weddings are a great mixture of the perfect elements!
Early spring comes with great weather here in the South. It has similar nice temps and clear skies without spring showers. Plus, there’s less humidity or unbearable heat, so your hair and makeup can stay fresh all day! With a venue like Bluegrass Yacht & Country Club, you can blend your outdoor and indoor spaces perfectly to accommodate the weather.
Depending on the time your honey asked the question and gave you that gorgeous ring, your wedding date could actually be determined by availability. Even though you got engaged in December of 2016, you may not get married until spring or summer 2017 because vendors are already booked! With an early spring wedding, you can move that date up and not be engaged for what seems like eternity.
Big tip: since it’s usually still considered the off-season, some vendors may have less expensive pricing during this time! Hallelujah, right?
With a wedding that is in-between seasons, you have the freedom of incorporating colors, themes, and flowers without being overbearing or stereotypical! Do you love winter decor like pine cones and string lights, but hate that it reminds of you of every holiday party during Christmas? An early spring wedding is for you! Mix those with lighter colors, and poof, Santa be gone! Or don’t like bright colors that are so typical spring? A darker palette still works without looking out of place.
Your Facebook page may be full of wedding photos or maybe it’s your refrigerator decked out in invitations, you already know wedding season comes in full force! You not only have to navigate finding an open venue for that time, but also finding a time that none of your own family and friends are getting married! Talk about the added stress. Early spring is the perfect time for your wedding without the hassle of finding out if the majority of your guests can even attend!
Your wedding dress can also have the flexibility of both seasons! A lovely, classic long sleeve gown can be transformed into a fun, breathable gown! Take off a lace overlay top to reveal a sweetheart neckline for your reception. Two looks, one day, same price, who doesn’t love that?
