Planning an Outdoor Spring Wedding.
Planning an outdoor spring wedding can be a rewarding and exciting experience, but it
can also be a daunting task.
From selecting the perfect colors to picking out decorations and designing a wedding menu, there are many things to consider when planning an outdoor wedding. This blog post will provide you with some helpful tips and advice to ensure that your outdoor wedding is a success.
Pick a Venue
Looking for an outdoor spot with a water view, a covered seating area, and a modern style? Look no further than Apricus Venue! Our outdoor space can accommodate up to 300 seated guests for a ceremony, or combine use of both the indoor and outdoor spaces of the venue for separate ceremony and reception areas to “wow” your guests!
Decide on your Color scheme
With the season's blooming flowers, vibrant colors, and longer days, you can draw inspiration from the beauty of nature. Use this color scheme throughout the wedding with your invitations, decorations, a specially crafted drink, and the wedding party’s wardrobe.
Consider colors like blush pink, sky blue, mint green, lavender, and ivory to bring a light and airy atmosphere to your special day. Blush pink is a great choice for a statement color, which can be paired with lighter colors such as ivory, pale yellow, and light gray.
Sky blue is a beautiful color that can be used to bring a sense of serenity to the atmosphere and can be combined with cooler colors such as dusty rose and soft lavender. Mint green is a great color for spring, which can be used to create a fresh and
modern look. This color pairs nicely with ivory, light pink, and sage green. Have fun with your colors and choose a color palette that captures the beauty of the season!

Want a more bold look? Some brides choose bright colors for spring such as yellow, hot pinks, and other bold colors. At the end of the day, your big day should reflect you and your style.
When choosing the right color for your special day, keep in mind what flowers will be in season during your spring wedding. There are many flowers that are in season during spring, including tulips, daffodils, lilies, irises, daisies, lavender, and ranunculus.
Each of these flowers bring a unique and colorful element to any bouquet that will brighten up any room. Additionally, spring is a great time to get creative with your bouquets and add different types of foliage to create a more whimsical and organic look.
Herbs like rosemary, lavender, and mint are a great addition to any spring bouquet and will add a pleasant scent to the room. With the right combination of flowers and foliage, you can create a beautiful, unique bouquet that will last through the spring season.

Consider the theme of your wedding and select decorations that will help create the atmosphere you want. If you’re having a more modern affair, choose decorations that will give your event a contemporary feel. A popular option is a greenery wall with a custom LED sign that can feature your new married last name! Champagne walls and floor florals are also trending decorations for ceremonies this year.

When it comes to food, you’ll need to decide on a wedding menu. Depending on the size of your event, you may want to hire a caterer or choose a buffet-style meal.
Consider the number of guests you will have and the type of food they prefer. If you’re having a large gathering, a buffet-style meal may be the best option. If you’re having a smaller event, you may want to consider serving a plated meal or a family-style dinner.
One beautiful and tasty way to spruce up your food tables is by including a charcuterie board. Having a colorful spread across with edible flowers, bright berries, and delicious cheeses will keep your guests snacking and happy throughout the evening.
Music is a great way to keep your guests entertained throughout the night. You can choose to hire a DJ or band, or you can even create a playlist of your favorite songs. If you’re looking for something a bit more interactive, you may want to consider having lawn games or activities for your guests to enjoy.
In the last few years, performers for entertainment have been sweeping the wedding industry from aerialists and lion dancers to unique drink servers and choreographed
dancers. You can incorporate your wedding party into these performances or find a company to perform for your big day.
