"Oh, they say when you marry in June you’re a bride all your life,
and the bridegroom who marries in June gets a sweet-heart for a wife."
“June Bride” from the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Will you be a June bride? June and other spring months have been popular choices for wedding dates for decades. There’s something sentimental and romantic about a spring wedding. If you’re a spring bride, how is the planning going? Here are a few things you may want to think about for your spring wedding at the Lake of the Ozarks!
Have a Backup Plan
Spring is a fickle season, some days are glorious with beautiful weather and sunny days. Other days bring surprise storms and torrential downpours. Because you can’t be guaranteed a spectacular weather day, it’s best to have a “plan B” just in case. At Seven Springs Winery, we have many beautiful outdoor wedding venues at the Lake of the Ozarks. We also have a location indoors for those days when the weather won’t cooperate.
Find Your Wedding Shoes
If you haven’t found the perfect pair yet, it’s time to get hunting. You’ll want to allow for plenty of time to start breaking in your wedding shoes well before the big day. Revel in true girly-girl style by slipping on your shoes every evening. Wandering around the house for 5-10 minutes can break them in while keeping them clean.
What Time is Sunset?
As the seasons change, it’s a good idea to think about how the lighting will improve your big day. If you’ll be having an evening ceremony, you may want to plan the ceremony right before sunset. Then it will fade into a wonderful spring evening for the reception and make for a glorious event!
Plan for Your Guests Comfort
Spring weather can have some uncertainties, so plan ahead for your guests. Spring evenings can still be a little chilly so you can invest in standing heaters to gather around. You could also provide comfortable blankets for them to cuddle under.
Take Advantage of Natural Beauty
The spring season naturally produces beautiful surroundings. Everything is finally green, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing. Use this to your advantage! You can still incorporate floral arrangements, but you can make use of natural beauty. This can also save you money in your wedding budget!
