Make the Most of Exquisite Lilies

Springtime makes everyone tingle with excitement and May weddings are the ultimate springtime events. Are you ready for it May wedding season? After you use these 6 ways to maximize a May wedding you will be!

1. Move It On Out - Take advantage of this time of year for near-perfect weather conditions. Finally out of the winter chill, but not yet in the heat of the summer, an outdoor May wedding invites you and your guests to kick off your shoes and have some fun. In addition, the intoxicating aroma of fresh May wedding flowers that lingers in the warm breeze creates the perfect ambiance in which to say I do. (Note: Always be prepared with a back up plan in case of unexpected rain.)

2. Best Buds - May wedding flowers are among the most appropriate for creating cheerful nosegays and displays. If you are having an outdoor May wedding, the options are even more elaborate and exciting. Outdoor props such as garden arbors, trellises, and fences can be covered vines and greenery and enlivened with a splash of May roses or your favorite wedding flowers for May. Asters, gerberas, chrysanthemums, carnations, and daisies are all lovely flowers for May weddings that can create delicate and romantic accents. For a more sophisticated twist on this same theme consider lilies or lilacs. Many professional florists agree that spring wedding arrangements look their best with a single flower theme. This simplistic design creates a quiet but dramatic continuity throughout your celebration.

3. Light Up The Night - Another dramatic and popular wedding idea is candlelight. Borrowing from the shabby chic style of decorating, candles for weddings create ambiance and mood like nothing else. To maximize this idea, get married at night or have the ceremony/dinner late in the afternoon and continuing on into the night. You can use any types of candle that you like, but popular choices are large block candles or thin taper candles in glass holders. Tie pastel-colored organza around the base in single or multiple layers for added beauty.

4. Feeling Hot Hot HOT! If you want to keep your cool during your May wedding day, make sure to choose a dress made from lightweight, breathable materials. Brides might consider the less traditional short or simple wedding gown to save themselves from perspiration and excessive material. Strapless or backless dresses are popular choices, as are sundresses for less formal events such as beach weddings. A dress with detachable layers will help the bride look regal during comfortable and stay cool during the party. Lightly tinted gowns are become the latest trend, pink being a particularly trendy option for May weddings. Up dos are preferred over long flowing hairstyles. This will keep your neck and upper back cooler when dancing. The general rule for May wedding makeup is keep it light and simple. Soft and oil-free powders should be used to reduce sweat and shine.

5. Stay Crystal Clear - Glass wedding vases make unique and beautiful centerpieces. There are loads of ideas for this simple and inexpensive theme. Fill vases with water and float votives or cut flower heads in the water. Press a single type of flower head all over the interior of the vase and fill the center with beads, rocks, or wedding favors. Continue the shabby chic theme and use colored organza bows to decorate a simple bouquet within elegant glass wedding vases. The possibilities are endless!

6. Festive Foods - May weddings are a great time to break out the veggies. In May, many fruits and vegetables are ripe and deliciously fresh, and brides should take advantage of the benefits. Loading up on healthy fruits and veggies can save you money on a more elaborate or complicated wedding menu. Also, luscious produce looks gorgeous and tastes fabulous. Fresh fruit and vegetables invite spring into your happy occasion, keeping the ambiance fresh and ripe, as well.
