Spring wedding season is just around the corner! Our wedding pros have compiled a list of helpful pointers and commonly forgotten details when preparing for a springtime celebration of love in the beautifully budding state of New Hampshire (or anywhere in the northeast!).
- Prepare for rain and heat. With spring comes unpredictable weather here in the Granite State. Be sure to work with your wedding coordinator to plan an indoor option for your ceremony in case of precipitation. Additionally, your venue may have umbrellas on hand in case of rain for outdoor photos, or to offer to your guests as they arrive on property. Equally important, ask your coordinator to also be ready for the possibility of a warm, summer-like day. You might request an iced water station or cold beverage display during the ceremony seating.
- Expect a higher response rate to your invitations. Spring months are not typically high-volume travel months, and guests usually have fewer pre-booked plans, like vacations or other weddings, during this time. So expect more of your guests to respond “yes” to your wedding invite.
- Don’t forget heel stoppers. You may be lucky enough to have green backdrops and blossoming landscapes for your outdoor photo session. But, the ground may be squishy and wet. Pack heal stoppers in your “just in case” kit so your show-stopping heels stay clean and perfect for dance floor festivities.
- There’s a chill in the air after sunset. While the days are filled with sunshine and rainbows, springtime nights still remain chilly. Sweatshirts or pashminas make for adorable bridesmaids gifts, or are the perfect special touch to offer to your guests during your ceremony or reception.
