Spring Weddings


Achoo! That’s the sound of allergies kicking in when the world turns to full bloom. If it’s a problem you’ve lived with all your life, you’re probably well stocked with antihistamines and decongestants to get you through “I do.” It goes without saying, of course, that your wedding day isn’t the time to be experimenting with new medication or self-prescribing how much you think you’re going to need; the combination of stress, sunlight, sweets and champagne could throw you for an unexpected loop!

Many a May bride or bridesmaid has also made the discovery that bees can’t differentiate between bridal bouquets and free-range flowers. An alternative that is gaining in popularity (although understandably not popular with florists) is the use of bouquets made of silk flowers. Not only do they provide a lasting memento of the day but will cut down on the amount of sneezing throughout the ceremony. It’s also been my experience that one of the things that makes a bride most anxious is whether her flowers will be delivered on time or, worse, be delivered too early and start to droop.

The heat of pre-summer weather brings with it drenching humidity. If your dress is high necked, long sleeved and has a train the size of a boat, do you really want to be standing outdoors in it for a couple of hours? Morning and early evening weddings are a popular choice for brides who are dressed to the nines and want to avoid the possibility of fainting away in the midday heat. These time slots are also much kinder to hors d’oeuvres and cakes, which have a tendency to not stand up well to direct sun. Trying to keep the bugs at bay? Citronella candles and torches will add to evening ambiance and dissuade mosquitoes from inviting themselves in for a bite.
