The ultimate guide to planning your spring wedding

Spring Wedding Planning - Ultimate Guide | CHWV

Let’s take a look at some inspirational designs to put a spring in the step of your celebration.

Spring is in the air! It’s time to say hello to the sunshine and start planning those wonderful, warm and colourful weddings.

Dress for Spring

Spring is a celebration of all things floral. If you’d like to make a statement, wear a floral wedding dress (which also happens to be bang on trend!)

Fabulous Florals

If you’re choosing a spring wedding and you love flowers, you’re in luck – this bountiful season gives us so many beautiful blooms to choose from. Tulips, daisies and narcissus make a dream combination.

For an informal celebration, fill natural vessels including jars, tins and even watering cans with generous blooms. Move them around your venue from ceremony to wedding breakfast so that your guests are constantly surrounded by flowers.

Dream Décor

To us, this image sums up a light-filled spring wedding. Hanging paper lanterns from the ceiling of your room or marquee is a winning touch – adding colour, and interest, from above.

Food and Drink

Don’t plan a lovely spring wedding and then disappoint with uninspiring food! Chat to your caterer about seasonal produce and choose treats that look inviting and taste even better. Let’s start with drinks and some pretty non-alcoholic cocktails served in Mason jars with striped straws!

And finally…

While spring weather can be kind, it can also be a wet and chilly! Prepare for wet weather with a large selection of umbrellas, and opt for a marquee instead of taking a risk and dining in the great outdoors.
