Spring is coming soon. A lot of events are usually held during springtime such as weddings. If you have a wedding planned for spring in Roy, Washington, you came to the right place.

Here at Roy General Store, we will be sharing a blog post discussing the tips to consider when planning a spring wedding. If you want to know more information, we encourage you to keep scrolling below to find out. Planning an upcoming wedding during spring can be stressful and tiring. Make sure to read the following tips to consider when planning a spring wedding.

Determine the right color theme

Choosing the right wedding color theme is important because it can help bring the wedding day to life. It can be used to match the décor and flower arrangements for your upcoming big day. A perfect wedding day is comprised of a lovely wedding cake, wedding rings as the symbol of your love for one another, and other small details that will help create the perfect day to get married to the love of your life.

Color themes are important for weddings because of the following reasons. You can choose the perfect color that symbolizes your relationship. For example, a lovely wedding during spring can use soft blush tones, light yellow, bright pink, or even gold. Choosing the right color can help provide a feeling of calmness for everyone attending the wedding. Also, choosing the right color theme for your wedding can set the right tone and mood.

Choose the right venue

Choosing the right venue is a big part of planning for your upcoming spring wedding. You must check the landscaping, lighting, décor, and other important aspects of the venue before the big day. You must choose a wedding venue that can cater to your guests without it being too crowded.

When choosing the best venue for a spring wedding, you must consider the following key factors.

  • Is the location convenient for everyone? Do they provide parking spaces for guests?
  • Is the location capable of catering to both indoor and outdoor weddings? Since you must consider the weather in your area in case of bad weather, will it be ok for your venue to be set up indoors? If you prefer an outdoor wedding, the weather in spring can be unpredictable, so you might want to prepare a backup location, a shelter, or a marquee in case there will be a light rain shower.
  • Does the venue have a dining room and an indoor area to set up the food, appetizers, and drinks?

If you prefer an indoor wedding, the venue must be well-ventilated and vibrant with décor matching your theme. Since the wedding will be held in spring, the ambiance must have a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere.

Choose the right food and drink

Old General Store Wedding and Event Center provides tables and chairs for your wedding and event needs.

If you’re planning a spring wedding, be sure to select food and drinks that align with the event’s theme. Consider serving scones, cheesecakes, seasonal fruits, vibrant snacks, healthy vegetable salads, savory dishes, and delicious floral or seasonal beverages. Offer light and fresh food options to guests, and consider incorporating floral garnishes into desserts for a touch of seasonal flavor.

To save money, consider inquiring with the wedding venue about serving locally and seasonally sourced fruits and vegetables. Additionally, setting up a self-serve bar for guests can offer them convenient access to drinks throughout the event.

For the table layout, opt for either informal long tables for a traditional dining experience, or individual tables for a unique and stylish touch. Decorate the tables with light colors such as cream, soft pink, light lavender, or white.

For a rustic feel, decorate wooden tables with vases filled with beautiful spring flowers. For a more sophisticated vibe, incorporate vintage elements such as chandeliers or paper lanterns into the venue decor. To match the spring wedding theme, consider using airy linens for table decorations.

Choose the right dress

Delight in the convenience of in-house catering and beverage services, including a no-host option for the bar, at Old General Store Wedding and Event Center.

For a spring wedding, the bride has several options when it comes to selecting a wedding dress. From a traditional classic white gown to a dress with a pop of color, strapless styles to showcase the shoulders, or a dress with a delicate floral design, the possibilities are endless. Adding lace and ribbon accents can also add a touch of texture to the dress. It’s important to choose a gown that fits the overall theme of the wedding.

Prepare the right activities and entertainment for your guests

Since the wedding will be held during spring, your wedding guests might be excited to enjoy the weather and take photos outside. You can set up a photo booth or hire a professional photographer to take photos of your guests. For the kids, you can set up a small Easter egg hunt so they can also have fun during your wedding. You can also prepare fun lawn games for the guests during cocktail hour.

During the night, a wedding band can play your favorite music or you can hire a DJ to play music so you and your partner can have fun dancing the night away and your guests can have a great time on the dance floor showing off their epic dance moves.
