With its beautiful floral backdrop, perfect temperatures and combination of fresh colours, there is no better time for a wedding than spring!
There are so many things we love about spring. After a long winter, the warmer temperatures and spring sunshine are welcomed – as is the landscape, as gardens transform with new colour and fragrance.
There’s also something extra special about getting married during the spring months. As it’s all about rebirth, renewal and new beginnings. It’s the best season to start your next chapter together as a married couple.
It’s changes like these that make the season perfect for a wedding, along with a whole host of other perks…Take a look at the top five reasons to have a spring wedding in Devon!
1. Better availability on wedding dates
During the summer months, it can be difficult to secure a weekend wedding date – with some couples reserving dates years in advance. In spring, however, you’ll have a much better selection of dates. Venues may offer discounts too on last minute spring wedding dates – so there’s really nothing to lose!
2. Venues are in full bloom
What better backdrop for your wedding photos than a glorious venue in full bloom? During the spring months, gardens are usually at their best. There’s plenty of colour and visual interest – both adding to the charm and romance of your day.
3. Suppliers are less in-demand than in the Summer
Got your eye on a leading local photographer? Left some of your supplier bookings until the last minute? If you’re getting wed in spring, it will be a little easier to secure your favourite suppliers. Unlike the summer months, where you’ll find some suppliers getting booked up years in advance, spring wedding dates are more widely available. With more availability come potential discounts too!
4. A choice of inspiring colour palettes
With combinations including rose quartz and Chantilly blue; blush and gold, and mint and yellow, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your wedding colours. The lighter, brighter tones of spring reflect the bright floral feel of the season and bring elegance and romance to venue décor.
5. The perfect temperature
Let’s face it, most of us dream of a wedding day that’s sunny and mild yet not too hot or too cold. Spring offers some of the best British weather and comfortable temperatures – ensuring your man’s not too hot in his suit and you’re not shivering in your dress.
So now you’re set on having the perfect spring wedding, you’re going to need to find your perfect wedding venue…
