Spring has Sprung

Spring is the perfect time of year to get married. It’s the season of new beginnings, the weathers often nice with crisp mornings & there are fresh flowers everywhere. It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular wedding season and how couples are often inspired by the outdoors of our award-winning woodland retreat & nature whilst planning their springtime wedding.

Flower Crowns 

There’s no better time of year than spring to add flowers to your bridal hair look. There is a variety of ways to include this into your look, whether it being adding flowers to your braid, rocking a flower crown, or an intricate floral tiara. We have our very own Bridal Salon here at Gellifawr, giving you the perfect excuse to spend the morning with your besties.

Pastel Color Palette

Spring goes hand-in-hand with a warm pastel colour palette. You could keep all your decorations fairly neutral and incorporate colour into your bridesmaid dresses & the accessories that your groomsmen have. If you’re not sold on the idea of lots of colours why not adding subtle pastel colours into your decorations instead. Imagine pastel table runners with neutral flowers or vice versa. The options really are endless.

Bring it all outside 

What says spring more than an outside wedding? Take advantage of the beautiful weather, the woodland ceremony area, the Preseli mountains and the Gwaun-Valley, by hosting your most special day outdoors. The more greenery you have at your venue, the less you have to decorate it, which is a win-win if you ask me.

Spring inspired favours 

Wedding favours are always a tricky subject. It’s always lovely for your guests to be able to take something home with them to remember your special day. If you’re celebrating your wedding in the Spring, why not give your guests a gift that represents the season such as wildflower seeds, mini plants or honey pots.

Serving fresh cocktails 

When you think of the warmer months & a day with beautiful weather, what’s better than a cocktails in hand? Perhaps creating colourful, Spring inspired cocktails with floral garnishes would be a lovely touch for your welcome reception. Whether you incorporate your go-to cocktails or opt for bespoke in-season fruit, serving fresh cocktails with these subtle details is the perfect way to tie in the season in a small yet noticeable way.
