Although April is known for its small showers, it’s also one of the most beautiful times of year for a wedding. From spring flowers to venue availability, here are a few details to consider when deciding if an April wedding is right for you.
While the weather can depend greatly on where you’re located, you’ll generally have more mild temperatures for an April wedding. You can either beat the heat or escape the snow – or both! Springtime also brings beautiful blooms and seasonal flowers that are perfect for your wedding photos, bridal bouquet, fresh centerpieces and more.
Another great benefit of an April wedding is less competition for a great venue. Since many couples opt for a summer ceremony, you’ll enjoy more freedom when choosing a wedding date in the spring. Worried about lingering ‘April showers’? We recommend finding a venue with indoor options or a tent available to avoid any weather issues.
An important detail to consider when planning an April wedding is choosing a date that doesn’t coincide with a holiday. Easter and Passover are two of the largest holidays that often land in April, however each year is different so be sure to consult a calendar. Many schools also schedule their Spring Break sometime in April so it’s good to be aware of this when planning your honeymoon as well.
Whether you’re craving a tropical destination or snow-filled getaway, you’ll have your choice of both for an April honeymoon. Not only will many resorts be less crowded this time of year, it might also be easier to request time off at work due to the season. By avoiding the most popular wedding months, you may even end up with some extra funds to extend your honeymoon.
