Spring is a glorious time of year and ideal for a wedding. How do you make sure you’re wearing the right wedding dress, are keeping your bridesmaids happy and do you have the right wedding accessories?

Read on for the definitive guide to choosing wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and the all-important wedding accessories.

Choose a lightweight material

Heavier, long-sleeved winter wedding dresses are definitely out for this season. No bride wants to be sweating their way down the isle. Spring is all about lighter airier wedding dresses.  Floaty and bouncy fabric gives freedom to flaunt a bit of skin.

Pair your dress with a wrap if the weather if you are expecting a drop in temperature.

Traditional or modern wedding dresses?

Opting for a lighter weight dress doesn’t mean turning your back on a more traditional style of wedding dresse. Long floating skirts or gowns can combine tradition with seasonal practicality.

For a breakaway from tradition, why not go for something slim-fit? Shorter wedding dresses can also really accentuate your figure. You also don’t have to go for the traditional white. Many spring brides are choosing wedding dresses in peach, pink and baby blue.

Wedding accessories for spring

After choosing the perfect spring wedding dress, you’ll have to think about wedding accessories to match. Subtle jewellery works best for the time of year, and don’t forget seasonal flowers.

Other wedding accessories to consider are shoes. Most brides will regard these as the most-important of wedding accessories. Some will even place shoes as more important than wedding dresses!

Spring bridesmaid dresses

The same rule that applies to wedding dresses also applies to bridesmaid dresses – go for light and airy and pair it with a wrap. Some brides allow their bridesmaids to choose the style and color of their own dresses.

If you want to organise this yourself, consult them on your decision. A perfect bridesmaid gift could be a wedding accessory they could wear on the day such as a bracelet or necklace.
