1. Pastels

Pastels are perfect in the Spring! The light and airy tones can really make a gorgeous wedding palette. You can break tradition and have mismatched bridesmaid dresses that can each incorporate a different pastel. It’s fun and very bright and it allows the ladies to pick out a color that they like best. Everyone wins!

Incorporating watercolor into a Spring wedding is a must! Using a pastel color can keep it rooted firmly in a spring tradition while the watercolor style keeps it fun and light hearted. An awesome place to use watercolor is on your cake and invitations. If you or someone in your family loves DIY projects you could even create your own!

The first thing everyone thinks about when they think of Spring is flowers. Of course, flowers are a great addition to a Spring wedding, but not a necessity (See number 5 for more on that!). If you want to include flowers without actually including the real thing, you can use great floral prints.

4. Flowers/Garlands

Of course, if you are all about flowers, that’s awesome too! There are so many great floral combinations you can use for Spring. Having so many options can make it tough to choose. Garlands are also a great option to bring some Spring freshness to your wedding. Why not a little of both in a gorgeous table runner?

5. Paper for more than your wedding invitations

Still not into the flowers? Well one of the hot new trends is to use paper flowers! Paper flowers can bring a fun whimsical effect to your wedding while still having a touch of elegance and sophistication. Plus, they are cheaper than regular flowers and you can easily whip some up if you like DIY activities. You can get them in any color you want at any time of the year too, and they won’t wilt. You don’t have to stick with plain colors though, you can mix in some book pages or even some sheet music.

6. Neutral tone Groom

Let’s be honest, black is pretty boring right? And it’s so dark! Definitely not a Spring color. Giving the groom’s attire a neutral tone can really tie in well with the lighter tones of Spring. Consider a light grey or a beige color for the groom’s tux. You can put in a nice pop of Spring color with the tie and/or the boutonniere.

Choosing a Wedding Date

Choosing the Best Date to Get Married

Once you’re engaged there is one question that gets asked right after you show off the ring, “so when’s the big day?”. In almost every single case this question is asked way too soon for you to even have an idea. While people certainly treat you as if you could answer this question less than a day after the proposal, most can’t. It takes time to come up with a date and with so many variables where do you even start? Have no fear, here are the best tips we could find to ensure you have an answer to that pesky question and avoid the headaches that come along with getting it.

Keep the season in mind

If you live in a climate that has varying weather dependent on the season be sure to take this into account. While this may seem obvious, all the other variables may make you lose sight of picking the perfect season for your wedding. Not only should you think about the season of your actual wedding but also the season of your honeymoon destination. If you’re getting married during the summer in Michigan but you plan on honeymooning in Australia, you may be shocked to find that it’s winter in Australia and you won’t get the sun you expected.

The key here is to be flexible. Staying flexible will allow for less hurdles when it comes to honeymoons, venue availability, and individual scheduling. A beautiful and memorable wedding can occur during any season.


Pick a date and stick with it

Once you’ve made sure that your immediate family and any other friends that you must have at your wedding can make a specific date you should set it. After that you should avoid listening to everybody’s opinion on the date. You’ll find there isn’t a single day of the year that every single person is happy with. Pick a date that works for you and your must-haves and move on.


How long do you want to be engaged?

When thinking about how long you’d like to be engaged it’s important to factor in how much time you can contribute to planning the wedding. If you plan to be engaged for 6 months, it’s important to be sure you have enough time to get your wedding in order. Yet if you are going to be engaged for a year or two you might find yourself wondering if you’re ever actually getting married. On one hand, you may have to move quickly, on the other hand things could move painfully slow. The idea is to find the perfect balance and move at your ideal pace.


Quickly become aware of your venue’s schedule

One thing you don’t want to do is wait too long to book a venue. Wedding venues can fill up quickly and not have the specific dates you want. Remember earlier when we spoke about flexibility? Now is the time to put that into action. When you’ve found a day that works for you, book it. Once you do that everything else will start to fall into place.


Planning a wedding may not be the easiest task, but it doesn’t have to be too difficult either. If you are being proactive and flexible it will alleviate much of the stress that can accompany setting a date. After all, what is important is the moment you share with the person you love and the kind of life you two have afterward. When you’re with the right person any date is the perfect date.
