Wedding bells are ringing as the spring weather draws near. Whether you are planning for a spring 2020 or 2021 wedding, we have some tips to help make your spring nuptials flourish.
Spring Holidays to Keep in Mind
Spring begins on March 19 and concludes June 20. While flowers will be blooming and the weather will be changing, there are some dates that you’ll want to keep in mind to ensure your special day doesn’t overlap with a holiday. This is not an all-inclusive list, but just some key spring holidays to keep in mind.
- Mother’s Day – Always a Sunday in May
- Palm Sunday – Typically in March or April
- Easter – Typically in March or April
- Passover – Typically in March or April
- Memorial Day – Always a Monday in May
- Father’s Day – Always a Sunday in June
- Ramadan – Varies
While a Memorial Day wedding may seem like a fun idea, keep in mind many of your guests may plan family getaways. If you do plan your wedding for one of these holiday weekends, be sure to send your save the dates in ample time to ensure your family and friends can plan accordingly.
Spring is the ultimate transition season. The natural colors are becoming more vibrant as time progresses. Because there is so much change, essentially any color scheme can go for your spring wedding. Whether you love grey-blues and pale pinks or shades of orange, you can literally do any color scheme.

While there are many benefits to having a spring wedding, there are some downsides you may want to consider. The big question for many spring brides is what will the weather be on my wedding day?
In NEPA, we can have snow until the end of March through April. Or it can be sunny and warm starting in February. The weather is often a big unknown and one you need to account for. Be sure to check with your venue on contingency plans if your main space is outdoors. You’ll be glad you had a plan B.
A big part of wedding planning is centered on decor for many couples. And one such way to decorate your venue is with flowers. If you’re looking for in-season flowers, take a look at this list of blooming buds.
