Here in Maine, Spring is the season of renewal and celebration. What better time of year to get married? Aside from the obvious appeal of a rustic Spring wedding, here are the top perks you should consider:

  1. Budget Savings
    Tying the knot in the “shoulder season” (November to May) often means lower prices. Many key vendors, like properties, floral designers and wedding planners, offer discounted rates during the slower months of the year. Take your savings a step further and consider incorporating seasonal Spring elements into your design at a fraction of the cost.
  2. Temperate Weather
    Avoid the pitfalls of Summer humidity and unexpected Autumn chill with a Spring wedding. While the season may conjure memories of blustery rain and mud season, don’t forget about those incredible bluebird days! Consider an outdoor afternoon ceremony, followed by a celebration inside as the temperature drops. As far as April showers go, nothing can rain on your parade when your Plan B is a cozy barn setting!
  3. Seasonal Design Inspiration
    In New England the landscape comes budding to life–literally!–in the Spring. This means on trend wedding details like organic floral designs, au naturel tablescapes and unique escort card displays will coordinate perfectly with the season’s lively and romantic color palette.
  4. Less Stress
    While Summer is the most popular time of year to get hitched for its favorable weather, you might find yourselves overwhelmed with planning and keeping up with your regular Summer schedule. Vacations, family retreats and other friends’ weddings are all likely to come in waves this time of year. Instead, you may find Springtime the perfect in between solution when social calendars aren’t so full. 
  5. Vendor Availability
    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again! Booking your wedding in the Spring really opens up your options when it comes to vendor choices. Less competition for dates, more time to focus on your event–it’s an easy sum game!
