Planning your Spring Wedding
If the thought of saying “I do” in a bustling urban setting has you running for the hills, a countryside wedding could be more appropriate. While rolling hills and stunning scenery can be enjoyed all year round, spring weddings are particularly popular with blossoming flowers, vibrant colours, perfumed aromas and longer days allowing for a truly breath-taking ceremony.
With this in mind, here some top ideas to help create a dreamy spring wedding day.
Celebrate Nature with a Vibrant Bouquet
You’re about to start on a whole new chapter of your life, so why not celebrate this in style with an elaborate and visually striking bouquet? Being spring, you’ll be able to select a medley of all the best flowers such as roses, hydrangea, tulips, lilies and magnolias, or keep things simple with a delicate arrangement of lilacs. It all depends on your own personal colour scheme and tastes, but don’t be afraid to make the most of seasonal favourites such as sweet peas or ranunculi which add an instant pop of colour to any bouquet.
Opt for a Floral-Inspired Wedding Dress
During the planning stages, wedding ideas can be plentiful, but it’s important to narrow down your thought processes and make decisions. With so many wedding dresses to choose from, finding the right one is not easy, but how about paying homage to spring with a floral-inspired frock?
Dresses with a floral motif are both elegant and feminine. They come in a wide array of styles with classic floral lace embroidery sitting alongside vibrant, hand-painted designs that are sure to turn heads. Flower-inspired dresses are ideal for rural weddings and were highly featured throughout the Fall and Spring Bridal Fashion Weeks. Whatever you go for, make sure the dress represents your individual personality and style.
Embrace Colourful Groomswear
Spring is the perfect time of year to experiment with different shades and hues. Colourful buttonholes and ties complement a darker suit, so it’s a good idea to think outside the box and play around with various colour combinations. If the bride is set to carry a bouquet of spring daffodils, for instance, the groom could wear a yellow tie to help highlight the chosen colour scheme. Similarly, if lilac is your spring colour of choice, a patterned or plain lilac bow tie could work nicely.
Choose a Quintessentially English Venue
Choosing a spring wedding venue is an important decision as you need somewhere that preferably offers exquisite accommodation and top-quality food. The good news is, standout wedding venues in Kent such as the Marquis at Alkham offer all this and more, including numerous wedding packages to suit everyone’s needs on their special day. Located close to Dover and Folkestone, this former 200-year-old inn is wonderfully charming and the perfect place to say “I do.”
A spring country wedding has the scope to be utterly mesmerising, so make the most of what nature has to offer and celebrate in style.
