As you know, Chris and I are getting married in the Spring. This season worked out best for us based on the time we got engaged, which was the summer of 2009. We knew we wanted a longer engagement but really, not longer than two years. That meant either a Fall 2010 wedding which was a little too soon, or a Spring 2011 wedding. Sometimes, throughout my planning, I wondered if we should have gone with Fall. Like when I discovered my love for anemones and kale, but found out they were seasonal in the Fall. Or, as we were attending some of the amazing Fall weddings we went to this year. I feel like with the typical Fall icons (apples, pumpkins, apple cider, leaves, burnt orange) you can really get creative playing up the season.
But in the end, we chose Spring, and I can't be anything but happy with this time of year. I'm excited for gorgeous bright flowers, birds chirping outside, beautiful green grass, and our guests totally ready and refreshed for a party after hibernating all winter. You really can't go wrong with any time of year, each season offers its own pros and cons. I read this on another blog yesterday: "What should I do if it rains? Smile...and hope there's a rainbow!"
What season did/will you get married in? What made you choose this time of year?
Or, What season do you want to get married in if you're not engaged (that one's for you Kate!)
