Spring is a busy time of year for wedding vendors because it’s one of the most beautiful times of year to get married, especially out in Perth where the gardens are in full blossom and the weather is rapidly warming up.
For an event that dreams are made of, follow our five handy spring wedding planning tips.
The Perfect Spring Wedding Venues
Despite Perth being renowned for its unseasonably warm temperatures, spring is still an unpredictable time when it comes to the weather. This means that forward thinking brides will choose a venue with a beautiful interior, as well as a beautiful garden and outdoor area.
In the lead up to spring, the vines at wineries will be in full swing, making them a hot spot during what’s typically the busiest time of year for weddings, but a lovely urban venue with a sun-filled courtyard will be just as beautiful for your dream spring wedding in Perth.
The Colour Scheme
When choosing your colour scheme, make sure you select ones you really love and stick to them! The colours you choose will be used in your flowers, bridesmaid dresses and even your stationery, as well as your decorations and possibly your makeup.
When we think of spring weddings, pastel hues generally come to mind; however, it’s a great time of year to go with a punchier palette. Bold colours like bright fuchsia is a lovely way to set the tone of your wedding and will perfectly complement the fresh green grass, but yellow, coral and blue are all equally great options.
Spring Wedding Catering
Work with your Perth wedding caterer to incorporate seasonal produce into your menu. There are bountiful fruits and vegetables that are at their best now that the weather is starting to warm up, and you have the luxury of being able to choose lighter, more refreshing menu options than you can in winter, but the weather is still cool enough for some richer menu items.
Spring wedding catering also has the potential to be a little less formal than the traditional sit-down menus we typically associate with winter. As the weather is starting to warm up, and if you’re planning an outdoor soiree, less formal share plate catering or barbeque catering could be a good idea.
Our seasonal vegetable medleys, tomato and pesto tartlets and lemon tea cake will all go down a treat!
Pretty Spring Blooms
Make the most of the gorgeous seasonal blooms that come to life in spring, but remember – stick to your colour scheme! At this time of year, everything is fresh and lovely. Think pretty Delphiniums that provoke the charm and tranquillity of an English garden, the French good luck charm, Lily of the Valley with their soft white droplets, fragrant Lilacs, or even rustic Rosemary that adds a touch of fragrance and pairs beautifully with wildflowers and cottage-style blooms.
A Spring Wardrobe
Pick a wedding dress that complements your brightly coloured flowers and the fresh, blooming atmosphere outside. Start thinking light, flowing layers, but consider adding something a little warmer if the evening gets a little chilly.
When it comes to your bridesmaids and your groom-to-be, incorporate a splash of colour. Choose a coloured shirt and a bold boutonniere, and for your maids, you can start thinking about shorter styles and colours that complement their bouquets.
