Spring is seen as the time of renewal, making it the perfect time to get hitched as your wedding marks the beginning of a new phase of your life.

The weather’s warming up and everything’s in bloom — what’s not to be excited about? There are so many things to consider before saying ‘I do’ in the Spring. Each wedding comes with its own set of pros and cons; here’s what you need to know before sending out those save-the-dates…


  • Spring décor. If your dream colour palette has always been soft, light, and neutral colours, then you are in for a treat. Think pretty pastels, blooming cherry blossoms, and fresh greenery! This creates not only a beautiful backdrop for your photos, but you can also mix light colours if you like rather than committing to just one or two wedding colours. The more colours the merrier in the spring!
  • You might get more “yes” repliesbecause friends and family aren’t taking their set vacations so that’s a plus.
  • You don’t have any weather-related restrictions when it comes to selecting your gown.If you want to wear sleeves, you can without overheating. You’ve always imagined yourself going sleeveless? Do it. Whatever style you prefer it’s a go with a spring wedding.


  • SA Spring weather can be unpredictable. You may have been dreaming of your cherry blossomed-day radiating in the sunlight ever since you sent out your save the date, only to be soaked in raindrops. It’s best to select a venue that can accommodate any changes from Mother Nature.
  • Venue and vendor pricing start inflating. Take a look at your budget and decide whether you can afford a peak-wedding season affair…if not, plan for the early part of the season and save.
