Spring is in full bloom here in Savannah! Anyone who has visited the Hostess City during the spring months will know that the season is particularly enchanting here. Beautiful flowers are blossoming. The trees, shrubs, and grass are gorgeous shades of green. And the sunny, moderate weather will make you want to stay outside all day long!
With all of the beauty surrounding the season, it’s truly no wonder so many brides dream of saying “I do!” during the spring. If you’re considering hosting a stunning springtime celebration, here are just a few of the benefits you might enjoy!
When you’re hosting an outdoor wedding in the springtime—especially at a venue as enchanting as Red Gate Farms—Mother Nature can do the decorating for you. Though the natural beauty of our venue is apparent all year long, our sweeping paddocks and the leaves of our famous ancient oaks are extra vibrant this time of year. Paired with our glistening lake, this will make for the most naturally gorgeous, lush background for your nuptials and wedding photography!
Though we’re lucky not to experience very harsh winters here in Savannah, we’re always thankful when springtime ushers in the warm sunshine!
With the perfectly not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather, spring is one of the best times to host the outdoor wedding of your dreams. Not only will you feel comfortable as you walk down the aisle, but your guests will also be thankful for the experience of breathing in some fresh air, soaking up just the right amount of sun, and taking in some gorgeous views as they watch you marry the love of your life!
You can also take advantage of the beautiful spring weather by hosting an outdoor cocktail hour or by offering creative outdoor lounging and dining spaces for your guests to enjoy during your reception! Of course, a spring shower might pop up every now and then, but have no fear! Red Gate Farms has you covered with our extensive wedding day rain plan.
Swoon-worthy color palettes
Isn’t there just something inherently romantic about a springtime wedding? Inspired by the plethora of beautiful flowers that come to life during the season, there are plenty of pretty hues you can use to craft your dream color palette. Soft pastel pinks, blues, and greens are perfect choices for a springtime celebration, and you can incorporate these hues in your bridesmaid dresses, bouquets, wedding cake, invitations, and more, for a seamless touch. However, don’t feel limited to pastel shades! During the season’s later months, you can incorporate bold, vibrant colors such as fuchsia, coral, and orange for a warm pop of color.
One of the most delightful parts of a spring wedding? The gorgeous flowers, of course! Springtime brides are blessed with a wide array of stunning in-season blooms to choose from. Roses, tulips, lilies, hydrangeas, sweet peas, and peonies are just a few of the many types of flowers that are readily available and at their most beautiful during the spring months. With such a variety of blooms at your fingertips, the possibilities for your bouquets and floral arrangements are truly endless. Whether you dream of pastel petals or simple greenery, your wedding florals are bound to be absolutely stunning.
Longer, brighter days
The longer days of spring are another major benefit of the season. With daylight lasting well into the evening, there is plenty of flexibility when it comes to your wedding day schedule. You won’t have to rush throughout your day to ensure you beat the sunset, which will give you more time to enjoy your ceremony and the hours leading up to it. Plus, you will have plenty of time to grab the perfect wedding photographs before your reception begins. Depending on the time you choose to have your ceremony and reception, you may still even have some daylight after the ceremony is over!
