If you’re looking to plan an upcoming Spring/Easter wedding, you should begin by thinking of color schemes. Spring and Easter and easily represented with beautiful pastel shades of pink, blue, purple or yellow. Flowers such as daffodils, lily of the valley, tulips, snowdrops and pansies are quite common.

An easy way to bring Spring to your wedding is to stick with the floral theme.  This way you can find great inexpensive favor ideas such as Lily of the Valley personalized tea bags or favors boxes matching your flower of choice. Alternatively, tulips are a common spring bloom and these can inject some color to your floral arrangements.

If you’d like to add a little Easter flair into your wedding you can incorporate the Easter egg into your wedding. This is extremely inexpensive and fun for adults and children as well.  Fill cute raffia birds’ nests with delicious mini Chocolate Eggs which guests will eat up (literally!). If you’re going for the Easter Egg theme, be sure to have an Easter Egg hunt (even if just for the kids)

Spring weddings are perfect for garden or outdoor weddings when the flowers are in full bloom and the weather is nice and breezy.

Wedding Gift Myths

With so many bridal occasions for just one wedding, it’s only common that a guest be confused as to how many gifts to bring to which occasion. On the other hand, it can be confusing for a bride too! Should she send multiple thank-you cards? Signature Grand Weddings has the insides and outs of wedding gift etiquette.

It’s OK to send Thank-You cards within a year’s time: FALSE!  Thank you notes should always be sent out promptly; within two to three weeks is ideal. Guests won’t remember what they gave you one year ago! Try to keep it sooner rather than later!

You should only send thank-you cards for the wedding, not the bridal shower: FALSE! Like any gift giving occasion, your “Thank you” in person should be followed up with a card as well. Have a friend take down the details of the gifts so that you can jog your memory when sitting down to write your cards.

Stating “No gifts” on the wedding invitations is thoughtful. FALSE. You may think your intentions are good, but you are actually not supposed to mention gifts at all on your invitation. The reason is that it is implied that without the “no gifts” notation, your guests would have been obligated to provide a wedding gift, which technically, they are not.

Maid of Honor and bridesmaids are obligated to host a bridal shower. FALSE! It may be tradition that the bridesmaids host the shower, it is not a necessity. In these times, many bridesmaids can’t afford to host a shower as well as pay for their dress and other bridal accessories. The bride is never to ask her attendants when they will be having a shower for her.

The cost of the bridal gift should be the same as the cost per head of the reception. FALSE! Each gift should not be expected to give a certain amount. Gifts are a generous token from the guests. To top it off, who would know the exact amount of cost per head at the reception besides extremely close friends? A gift should be chosen with care that it will please the recipient, not based on some imaginary equation.

Wedding Budget Advice

If you have your heart set on a nice, lavish wedding, but your budget is holding you back, take a nice deep breath and read on:  You don’t need to look at your budget as the end of your wedding world!  Look at is as a great way to save money for other events! You don’t have to sacrifice your dreams because of a wedding budget!

The first step is to create your budget, even before you select a venue or guest list. You must know your limits before you decide on how many guests will be It is important that you set a budget before making a list of who to invite. You need to know what you can spend so that you know how many people you can have at your wedding.

The next step is to decide what you can do yourself. If you are pretty skilled with crafts, you may want to tackle the favors and décor on your own. If you have a friend or family member that knows photography, see if they will do your photo shoot pro-bono (or for a reduced cost). All of these tiny details will help you to keep your budget for other aspects, such as food and venue.

If you can’t afford certain things, try to find help or resources that will make them within your reach, allowing your budget money to be spent elsewhere. A great idea is to buy a used or pre-owned wedding gown. If you think about it, this dress has most likely been only worn for an hour or two. The cost will be reduced in half, a great savings for most brides!

Remember that you should spend time planning a wedding so that cost do not get out of hand. If you being your planning well in advance, you will find that you aren’t feeling rushed and overwhelmed, you will have plenty of time to research your wedding essentials and stay within your desired budget.
