5 reasons to have a Spring wedding

Whilst Spring may not be one of the most popular seasons for weddings in the UK, there are certainly many benefits to getting hitched at this time of year. With the temperature just right and your surroundings in full bloom, it’s the perfect time to say ‘I do’ to the one you love. Read on to find out the biggest reasons to plan a Spring wedding in 2022.

1.      Fine weather

When you get married in Spring, you can take advantage of some fine weather. Whilst Summer might be too hot and Winter too cold, Spring is typically sunny and mild. You won’t need to worry about shivering in your off the shoulder gown as you walk down the aisle or your makeup sliding off due to the heat. The pleasant temperatures also mean you may be able to enjoy an alfresco celebration. Many venues have an outdoor ceremony license to allow you to get hitched outside. However, those that don’t will still let you enjoy a lovely drinks reception in the sunshine.

2.      Breathtaking colour palettes

Spring is famous for its pretty, soft colours, so why not incorporate the classic shades of the season into your big day? Choose pastel shades such as greens, blues, pinks, and purples. Have your bridesmaids wear baby pink, light yellow, or peach, and you’ll be set. Minimalistic green and white is a good choice for your bouquet. The simplicity of this understated combination can make a huge statement.

3.      Venues are in full bloom

Wedding venues Essex are in full bloom during springtime. The longer days and increased sunlight bring new life to flowers, trees, and other vegetation, making gardens and ground burst with colour and charm. Spring really does have a natural beauty that’s unrivalled by other seasons. The beautiful grounds at Crondon Park are the perfect place to say your vows or even just take some incredible photographs throughout your day.

4.      Suppliers are less busy than in Summer

Many suppliers are booked up years in advance for Summer weddings. However, Spring weddings are less in demand, which means that securing the services of your chosen caterer, photographer, or florist shouldn’t be as difficult. Since Spring wedding dates are usually more widely available, you may also receive some discounts from suppliers too!

5.      More of your guests will be able to attend

There’s nothing worse than finding out some of your guests can’t attend your wedding day. Fortunately, this is less likely to happen with a Spring wedding since jet setting to overseas destinations tends to happen during the Summer months instead. Planning a Spring wedding will make it more likely that your loved ones can be there.


A Spring wedding comes with many advantages, from fine weather and breathtaking colours to less demand for local suppliers. Spring is also synonymous with new beginnings, birth, and renewal, making it the perfect time to begin married life. Talk to the team at Crondon Park to book your perfect Spring wedding.
