Why Spring is the Perfect Time to Say ‘I Do’

Springtime signifies renewal and growth, and what better sentiment to describe the coming together of two souls on their wedding day. It’s one of the most beautiful times of year to begin a new life together, with longer, sunshine-filled days, and stunning flowers beginning to bloom. If you’re hearing wedding bells this season, here’s some top tips to help you make the most of your Springtime celebrations.

1. A bloomin’ beautiful time of year

Nothing says Springtime like big, beautiful bunches of flowers, and if you’re a little creative, there’s no limit to what your blooms can achieve.

Firstly, think beyond the centrepiece: make garland chains out of your favourite flowers, use them to decorate your cake, or add edible flowers to your signature cocktail.

You can also feature florals on your Wooden Wedding Invitations, and place petals in the bottom of your Wishing Well Box.

Bring the Springtime feel into your dress and accessories, too, with floral gowns on your bridesmaids, fresh flowers in your hair, or beautiful blossoms on your veil.

If you’re not into bright blooms, you can always go a little green: moss, herbs and other assorted greenery can make a huge impact and create a living, natural vibe in the room.

Lastly, to ensure the floral feeling lasts for days to come, gift each guest with their own posy in an Engraved Wedding Vase.

2. Location, location, location  

One of the best parts about a Springtime wedding is that the venue possibilities are endless.  

From a beautiful beachside bash to a classic garden party, you’ve got the pick of the bunch, and once your venue is locked in, your decoration choices will become even easier.

For a Garden or Country-Themed Wedding, think florals, hessian, and light-coloured wood, and make a stylish first impression at your ceremony or reception with a Personalised Wooden Welcome Sign and Wooden Wedding Cake Topper.

Spring also lends itself perfectly to the Vintage or Rustic-Themed Wedding, especially in accessories that feature rose gold accents, such as these Wedding Invitations and Bridesmaids Gifts

3. Keep it casual

Many bride and grooms-to-be choose a Springtime wedding because of its laid-back vibe.

With the temperatures staying a little milder, you can head into the backyard for a delicious barbeque, classic cocktails and ice creams from a food truck.

Everybody loves an event that gives them an opportunity to let their hair down and kick up their heels, so if this is your vibe, a Spring wedding full of flowers, food and fun might be just the ticket.

Keep the party atmosphere going with some off-kilter touches to take home – think Credit Card Bottle Openers that are engraved with your favourite phrase, Engraved Bamboo Wedding Sunglasses to shield peepers from the late-afternoon glare, or a sweet treat like a jar of Personalised Wedding Favour Rock Candy.

4. Heading for the honeymoon

Once the celebrations have died down, it’s time to head out on the best holiday of your life: your honeymoon!

Springtime is the perfect season to head to lots of great destinations, so you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your taste and budget.

If you’re staying in Australia, it’s a good time to explore the outback, as the days are always warm, and the tropical north is enjoying its dry season. Most major cities will also offer sunny days, too, if you prefer life in the big smoke.

Canberra will bloom to life with Floriade, the largest flower festival in the Southern Hemisphere, and Sculpture by the Sea will hit the beaches from Bondi to Tamarama.

It’s also prime time for hiking in Tasmania, and to island hop around the Great Barrier Reef.

Honeymooners love to hit the road, so if you know a couple that’s getting married at this time of year, a travel accessory will be the perfect present. An Engraved Bamboo Travel Notebook will let them capture all the memories of their big trip, while an Engraved Leatherette Luggage Tag will make sure their bags make it ‘round the world, too.
