With wedding season in full effect, families and bridal parties are buzzing with excitement! Lots of last minute loose ends to tie up, accessories to buy, payments to organize- it can be easy to overlook a few essential elements about Spring weddings. Here are a few things you should keep in mind:
- Unpredictable weather
If you are having an outdoor wedding, be weary of the weather and do a consistent check up the week of the wedding. Temperatures can drop, wind can get strong and we don’t want your guests to freeze. On the other hand, there is also the concern of rain so be sure to have an indoor backup plan in case mother nature gets cranky.
While food allergies are always something to keep in mind, outdoor weddings are a disaster for those who suffer from ragweed, grass and pollen allergies. If you know you have bad allergies and don’t want to blow up like a Macy’s balloon take precautions and pop those non-drowsy allergy meds or stash them in your clutch.
3.Check what time the sun sets
Especially if your wedding is outdoors since the days are getting longer. It’s a good idea to make sure the guests aren’t directly facing the sun during the ceremony being blinded by light rather than your love for one another! You also want to keep this in mind for taking pictures, you don’t want too much light but as the sun sets you start to lose time.
4. New blooms
Take advantage of the newly sprouting greenery. Fresh, pretty buds on the trees, gardens flourishing- these are all great for taking formal and informal pictures with friends and family. They will never look as lush and new as they do now so utilize them to the max!
