The Beauty of a Spring Wedding
Planning Your Christian Marriage this Spring
Spring is the season of renewal and rebirth in the Christian calendar which makes it an ideal time to plan a Christian wedding. Your first thoughts should focus on which part of the season you wish to celebrate with your forthcoming union. Will it be early spring when the spring flowers are poking their heads up through the late snow or will it be in the warmth of late May sunshine?
The Easter Christian Bride:
If you are planning to marry around Easter it might be worth talking to the vicar or pastor as to whether you can share some of the Easter decorations that they have for the church – after all, in these difficult financial times a penny saved is a penny earned. Easter is, however, a popular time for weddings and honeymoons so you might need to do some serious bargaining with the travel agent and also the suppliers of wedding cars and other services.
Behold the Glamorous Spring Christian Bride!
Spend time looking through the fashion magazines for brides and you will realise that spring is an ideal time to find a perfect wedding dress that is neither too warm or too cold – depending on where you are located you could also go sleeveless in late spring which has a very romantic appeal. With a blue sky you might like to reflect this with a sky-blue sash or trim to delight your groom and your admiring guests. If, however, you live in a troublesome weather zone such as the North of England you would be well-advised to have a dress with sleeves.
Coordinating your wedding entourage.
As a fashionable bride you will want your maids of honour to reflect the spring season . It might even be a nice idea to give blue or pink cashmere pashminas to your bridesmaids as wedding gifts so that they are protected against the elements. It might also be fun if you can find matching umbrellas that can act as either parasols or umbrellas depending on the weather of the day.
We favour a classic wedding dress suit for the men and it is more in keeping with a traditional church wedding. We know that many weddings are relaxed on male dress code but we feel that this is a shame since wedding hire shops abound everywhere.
