Hello March! This is usually the month of transitions, the front door to Spring and the escape from the colder months, we welcome with open arms.
Spring…..possibly the most popular of seasons where everything feels new again, the one with the vibrant flair and colorful soul. It is also the season where weddings are in full bloom and the colour palette is airy and cheerful. Here are a few things to consider for your Spring wedding in Malta.
Flowers: If you’re having a spring wedding, then consider yourself spoiled because when it comes to this subject you have all the possibilities in the world. Not only do you have your pick of flowers that are readily available all year-round (hydrangeas, roses, lilies, orchids, dahlias), but you’re also lucky with some of the most coveted blooms, including peonies, that can be difficult or expensive to find out of season, daffodils, lilacs, hellebores and poppies.
You are free to play around with original vessel alternatives for the arrangements. Garden-inspired elements work very well, especially with a spring wedding theme. Other than using the traditional vases, have your florist display the flowers using pottery pots, wooden baskets, galvanized pails, mason jars or even cute vintage watering cans.
Attire: Depending on where you have planned on getting married, it will be warmer and you probably will not require to be bundled up in heavy coats, especially if Malta is your chosen destination. Sleeveless options are beautiful, especially if you’re considering an early wedding ceremony. Choose a dress with a lightweight fabric that will move as you walk and provides a soft nature to it.
As for the men, dark suits or tuxedos are a timeless choice but not the only option. Light grays and powder blues will emphasize the fresh feel to spring and they are colours which photograph very well.
Cakes: The sky is the limit when it comes to cake decorations, flowers being the most popular especially at this time of year. If you are not keen on using actual flowers, sugar/gum paste flowers are just as pretty. Ruffled tiers, ribbons, floral-painted fondant, and semi naked or fully naked cakes are all equally gorgeous options. Research can go a long way here!
Decor: If you ask us, we think that flowers should most definitely play a big role in your spring wedding (bet you didn’t see that coming!). Floral-inspired together with patterned china and linens, or use actual flowers to transform your wedding venue into your own secret garden — think of a flower backdrop for the ceremony, or a rustic all swigs flower arch, floral chandeliers and fine foliage. If your floral budget is already out of the window, don’t sweat it, focus on using flowers where they will pack the most punch, such as your reception centerpieces, gypsophilia together with lots of green foliage are the way to accent your arrangements.
