This time of the year is great for holding a wedding, as the weather (hopefully!) starts to get a little sunnier and the beautiful spring flowers begin to bloom. Easter also marks the start of the wedding season, which means that your guests won’t have wedding fatigue and you don’t have to worry about summer brides having the same wedding dress/ bridal flowers / wedding theme as you.
Tips for Planning An Easter Wedding:
When you send out your wedding invites to your wedding guests, your Easter theme needs to be portrayed on them. This is to allow wedding guests to get into your wedding mood at an early stage and to allow the guests to start planning their occasion outfits.
Every little detail is crucial when planning an Easter wedding. It is important to decorate the table with different symbols of Easter to keep the Easter wedding theme running throughout the whole wedding venue. Coloured eggs can be used for the place names of people, and this can be placed directly on their tables. A bird’s nest centerpiece is a great way to decorate the center of each table in the wedding reception venue. The bird’s nest can have ribbons running throughout the branches.
Easter flowers are just so beautiful. Flowers such as purple and yellow work very well together with pink roses especially if you’ve chosen the colours as your wedding colours. The contrast of these colours, will brighten up the wedding reception room and the church. These colours are very soothing and will create a pretty and vibrant atmosphere for your wedding day.
Easter Colour Scheme
A light shade colour scheme is a must for your Easter wedding. Harsh colours will just drain out the thoughts of Easter. Use colours that are very subtle but will still add a warm touch to your wedding day.
It is important that your bridesmaids are dressed in brightly coloured dresses. These colours will go beautiful with your wedding dress, use colours that will look so pretty against your white or cream wedding dress.
PROS OF PLANNING A WEDDING IN EASTER
Long weekends make it a bit easier on friends who might have to travel from out of town they may not have to take time off work.
When a public holiday falls on a Friday or a Monday(or both when it is Easter) you have three to four days to choose from to get married on without it being a regular weekday.
Guests from out of town will be able to spend more time with you during the wedding ceremony.
Some people would prefer a more relaxed long weekend that doesn’t involve attending a wedding.
Many people book their annual leave to coincide with long weekends to maximise their time off work. You may find some key guests have done this already and will be away.
Long weekends can be expensive times to travel hotels, flights, even petrol often cost more.
Traffic can be a nightmare and could make you run late!
Public holiday surcharges can push up the costs of certain services, particularly your venue.
Nobody’s exact situation is the same, so only you and your partner can decide what will work for you and your guests, but if you’re planning on getting hitched on public holiday you should definitely weigh up all these factors.
