Spring has Sprung

Ahhhh, spring, and a young woman’s fancy turns to….. weddings! What are the advantages of nuptials in the spring? The symbols of love and new life are everywhere, from the budding blossoms to baby ducklings. There is truly something wonderful about love in springtime- the air is fresh and our hearts are open.

Tip Toe (Down the Aisle) Through the Tulips

There are so many beautiful blooms to chose from in April and May. Spring flowers such as daffodils, tulips, hyacinths  and cherry blossoms will give your celebration  the sweet ambience of joyful innocence.  They are also widely available  and quite affordable,  so  staying away from hothouse flowers at this time of year  and choosing what is in season for your bouquets and center-pieces could save you money. No need to hire a florist- spring flowers show best in simple glass vases or jars. These perfect white tulips would make a delightful display.

April Showers Bring May… Showers?

The one disadvantage to a spring wedding, particularly  in northern climes, is the  unpredictable weather. If hail, thunderstorms and high winds are not your idea of creating a romantic atmosphere, it may be best to plan for the majority of your event to take place indoors. If the weather is lovely, the guest can venture out and enjoy the spring sunshine. And if spring  rain falls on your  photo shoot? Be prepared with an attractive  umbrella, and capture the moment!
