As March is about to bring us some sunshine here in the Smoky Mountains, we’re feeling a distinct spring in our step, and have been cooing and swooning over sneak peaks of 2018’s spring weddings so far.
There’s something so special about spring weddings, don’t you think?
The promise of new beginnings, the incredible array of blooms, and the rare just-right temperature for a 100 layer sleeveless wedding dress!
Of course spring weddings don’t have the guaranteed sunshine of a balmy summer’s day, or the sparkle and chance of snow of a winter wedding, but what spring weddings lack in extremity, they make up for in opportunity.
At no other time of the year are peonies, magnolia, cherry blossom, sweetpea and freesia all in bloom. It’s the perfect season to rock a light bridal jacket or a gorgeous chiffon sleeve.
The palettes are endless, from buttery yellows, to dusky blues, soft whites to moody purples.
And from Easter egg hunts for the wee ones to bright ginghams, bonnets and flower crowns, ’tis the season to indulge in a little springtime whimsy.
Still not convinced that a spring wedding is for you? Take a look at these inspired ideas for a budding big day…
