Tips for Throwing a Spring Wedding in Greenville, South Carolina

So, you’re throwing a Spring wedding in Greenville, South Carolina! Great choice! The Upstate is known for its idyllic weather before the summer heat hits. And while none of us have control over the weather, we can help ensure your Spring wedding day is perfect. Anyhow, isn’t rain on your wedding day supposed to be good luck?

Here, Ruth’s Chris and UP on the Roof’s wedding experts share some valuable tips to help you execute a Spring wedding in Greenville that is flawless and incorporates the best of the season into your celebration!

Choose Seasonal Colors

The color palate for your wedding should reflect the Spring season. You are probably thinking Spring means pastels, and if you like them, lighter colors are great for a Spring wedding. However, if you prefer something bolder, like bright yellow, fuchsia, or a vibrant shade of green, those colors are perfect for the Spring season as well.

Bring in the Tastes of Spring

You have chosen the Spring to host your nuptials for a reason, so why not convey all that’s great about the season to your guests during the event? The food and drinks you serve can be an excellent way to do just that.

Serving seasonally inspired food and festively themed drinks can add an element of fun to your celebration while also incorporating the flavors of Spring. Our restaurants, Ruth’s Chris and UP on the Roof, make every effort to use the freshest, locally sourced ingredients that help bring the tastes of the season into every dish.

Choose Seasonal Flowers and Decor

This tip may seem like a no-brainer but it’s important to include because choosing seasonal flowers and décor is not only more fitting for your Spring wedding but can help save you a lot of money.

You may really want to have your favorite flowers at your wedding and reception, but if your top choice is an out-of-season bloom, then you will certainly save if you can find an acceptable in season alternative.

Avoid Conflicts When Choosing Your Date

When you are choosing your wedding date, of course your personal preferences matter the most. However, with a Spring wedding, there are several occasions and holidays you’ll want to consider when planning. Some of these include:

Mother’s Day
College graduations

Hosting a wedding over a holiday weekend isn’t necessarily a bad thing if it’s intentional, but it may mean some guests are already otherwise committed, etc. Regardless of the date you choose, you’ll want to make sure to get your date on your guests’ calendars by sending out Save the Date cards as soon as possible.

Book Your Venue Early

Booking a Greenville, SC wedding venue tops nearly every wedding planning checklist, but it is perhaps even more important to book your venue as early in the Spring as possible. Spring is often the busiest season for weddings in Greenville, so it’s important to book early to have the best selection of venues and available dates.
