What's new for spring weddings in 2016? Plenty. From donut displays to 3D-printed cake toppers and flowing watercolor gowns, today's weddings are less about tradition and are more of a reflection of the bride and groom's personalities. Though spring is quickly surpassing summer as the season for weddings, it's a tricky time that requires a lot of planning. Take a look at these tips to help you compare hotels, plan for the unexpected and get started putting together the big day.
Pastel colors at spring weddings are so last year. For your spring wedding, choose bright, bold colors that will stand out. If you do want pastels, we suggest modernizing them by pairing them with colors that give them a nice contrast. A rich espresso paired with a sky blue or light pink or lavender paired with a bright lime green or coral are sure to make a statement. Only use two colors, however, or you'll lose that elegant look.
Depending on where you live, your spring wedding day may be a rainy one. If you live in a region where torrential April showers bring May flowers, you have two options: have a Plan B for any outdoor venues or activities, or choose a destination wedding in a place such as Scottsdale. With warm days, cool nights and minimal rainfall, Scottsdale is the ideal place to go in the spring.
