It’s Summer & Bridal Fever!

It is that time of year again – WEDDING SEASON. Depending on the bride, the desired date for the wedding will vary – But many brides do love a Summer wedding, especially if they want to hold some of their special day outside, even though the British weather is well, unpredictable to say the least.

So what is the right season for you?

Spring: Spring symbolizes new beginnings and it is a time of hope. It is also Easter, so those people that have a religious connection to the Christian/Church of England/Catholic faith, well this is a lovely time to tie the knot in a church or as part of a religious ceremony. Why not add a touch of theme with Spring flowers, because all white is alright, but a splash of multi-colour to your wedding hairstyle and rainbow or seasonal flowers in your hair add extra unique flair on your big day. Check out my Multi-Colour post. Maybe this is the season you both fell in love?

Summer: Summer is a vibrant, fresh time of year and a popular time for weddings, so this may be the reason why, or the reason why not to book during this time. It is a great choose if you are thinking of having a UK honeymoon too, as you are likely to have the weather. If you are certain you want an outdoor wedding then maybe this is the right season for you. Maybe you love the summer months, and you know your friends and family will all be able to have time off work or school to attend your big day, and have a significant date to your and your husbands-to-be. So strapless dresses, pale shades, bronzed skin and sandals are all possible for a Summer wedding.

Autumn: Autumn is a beautiful time of year, when the colours are amazing and perfect to help you choose wedding shades. This is a lovely time of year for photos too – and you may be lucky with the weather. It is a nice season to look forward, as Winter offers Christmas, and Spring give us new beginnings and Summer – well everyone loves Summer… so by having Autumn as your wedding season, you can add excitement to your year.

Winter: Winter is wonderful… maybe you want a winter wonderland wedding. Maybe you have always dreamt of a horse and carriage riding you to your reception, with a crispness in the air, through the streets lined with bare trees? Some people find Winter depressing and boring, so it is a great way to brighten up this season with a wedding and a great festive party. If you want ultra glam at your wedding then this is the season for you – with sparkles, elaborate hair dos, and deep, passionate colours. Everyone loves celebrations near Christmas.

Multi-Colour Wedding Hair

Long gone are the days when weddings are all-white! If you have always dreamed of an ivory or white dress then go for it – but why not try adding more than just one theme colour to your big day? Do this with your hair accessories, just like my bride photographed here.

TIPS: Go for seasonal, vibrant hues that suit your character. You really do not have to go overboard with colour to enjoy a rainbow wedding – so be brave with the shades. The bride photographed opted for a simple, but spectacular ivory dress, a neutral bouquet and natural make-up, but look how those fluttery lashes match the vibrancy of the flowers and butterflies in her hair – Stunning and unique! If you want to opt for multi-colours, speak with your dress designer, hair stylist or make-up artist, as these are professionals who know exactly how colours work, which shades suit your complexion and do not clash with each other. Go on go for a splash of colour and add extra vibrancy to your big day!
