What do you want for your special day? You must have surely dreamed and planned so many things. But if you ask me, there are so many flowers, colors, venue and food options, that planning the wedding can become a bit overwhelming. To make it easier for you, I am breaking it down by each season, so you know what’s going to work for specific times of the year. This will help you pick the right wedding theme.
Weddings In The Autumn
In recent times, the fall has officially become the most popular season for weddings, beating the summer. The fall wedding trend is hot now, thanks to the temperature coming down, the changing foliage, and the calm after all the summer travels. Focus on food, flowers, and of course the fall colors to make your fall wedding event great.
Dark colors, greenery, berries and succulents will do very well. Wear a dark shaded lipstick. You can also add gold accents for matching the wedding season and theme. Think of mixed shades like burgundy and tangerine instead of blush pink and navy. For food, go for cranberry fizz cocktails and sweet potato fries.
Weddings In The Winter
People come together in the winter whether to feel cozy in the cold or because of the holiday buzz. Leafy greens, white, and ivory are all good winter colors. You can think of adding a few eucalyptus and branches to further enhance your winter wedding theme without going overboard. Natural touches like floral signs and personalized wooden coasters will make it even better.
Make it glamorous with sequins and furs, and do also consider braids that will provide the earthy gorgeous look. You can serve themed cocktails this season.
Weddings In The Spring
This is the season for pastels and flowers. The temperature is just right between summer heat and winter cold. Spring is a good time for an airy, light wedding.
An outdoor wedding is perfect this season. Go for whimsical lighting. Pastel watercolor should be great in your wedding signs, invitations, and even the wedding cake. And of course, don’t forget to add the flowers of the season. Groomsmen can wear floral bow ties, and the bridesmaids will look good in floral prints. You can wear a flower crown too. For the wedding dress, go sheer. It will look good in the photos.
Weddings In The Summer
Summer is a good time to let loose, go bold, and stay cool. So opt for bold colors. A simple wedding dress can look very beautiful and elegant this season. Add statement jewelry to top up your look. Natural makeup is also going to make you look gorgeous. I suggest makeup that is low-maintenance and practical for the summer heat.
Remember to have some shade if you want an outdoor wedding. Think of tents, and umbrellas. Also plan the menu carefully. Do include a few cold treats like a popsicle bar or ice cream, for example.
