I've got a soft spot for a spring wedding as I was a spring bride myself. .
Typically March to May, its one of the shorter seasons in terms of weddings. With the clock change at the end of March you can eek out a longer day but potentially get the venue you want at a lower price than high summer. We married on the 21st March and actually had highs of 18 degrees which was a real treat, even though we prepared for bad weather. .
The colours that spring time brings is just so happy. Lots of yellows, pinks and blues. Daffodils are in abundance and can make a real impact at a low cost. .
Brides are seen in lots of lace, sleeves get a little shorter and dresses start to become a little less heavy to avoid getting too hot. Lots of brides opt for a 2 piece dress, so a top / bolero style look to go over the dress, which they can then remove for the evening. Bridesmaids are seen in lots of pastels and pinks, leaving the stronger darker colours behind in winter. .
In terms of make up, things start to become a little fresher and more glowy. Lots of pinks and pops of shimmer on the eyes. Pinkier lips and luscious nudes and even a bit of coral. Bronzer and fake tan becomes a little more popular as brides want that healthy glow but typically aren't able to get a natural tan in this country. .
