3 Ideas for a Successful Spring Wedding

Have you always dreamed of walking down the aisle at the height of spring? This is one of the most popular wedding seasons and rightly so. The sun is shining, birds are singing, and flowers are in bloom. At Catering by Mario’s, we provide wedding catering in Philadelphia, and we’ve got three quick tips to help you pull off the most successful spring wedding ever. Here they are:

1. Choose the right flowers.

No wedding would be complete without some beautiful flowers for the decor. Flowers can be used in table arrangements at the reception, as decorations and in bouquets. Think cherry blossoms, crocuses, or snowdrops for spring.

You can even opt for flowers such as daffodils, tulips, peonies, or snow peas. It really just depends on your preferences. Most of these flowers are available in late spring, so you should have plenty to choose from when planning your special day.

2. Select season-appropriate food.

A spring wedding lends itself to a host of delicious menu options. For a spring wedding, you might want to consider lighter fare, such as chicken, fish, and seasonal vegetables. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, it’s probably best to avoid foods like cheeses and spreads, unless you have the right storing options.

A shaved ice-cream station with custom flavors is an interactive and tasty way to treat your guests. You can create custom flavors, too. Still need some food ideas or maybe a wedding caterer in Philadelphia? Catering by Mario’s can help plan your entire spring wedding menu.

3. Have a back-up plan.

If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, it’s important to have a Plan-B. Make sure that you consider more than just an outdoor tent, as well. If it does end up raining, you’ll need to have adequate space to house all of your guests, the food, and the decor. You can always provide some cute, coordinated umbrellas for the bridal party.

You’ll want to have a good back-up plan for your wedding photos, as well. Don’t just prepare for wet weather, though. Spring days can often be hot, too. Think about providing your guests with chair cushions to avoid hot or sticky seats.
