Natural Light

Heaps and heaps of natural light are practically an item on the list of requirements for a spring wedding venue! A wedding venue that has the ability to produce amazing natural light is a gorgeous choice for pulling out all the spring vibes. And, bonus, for enhancing your wedding day photos!

If you want that flood of natural light on your spring wedding day, you’ll be looking for a reception space that has tons of windows, floor to ceilings windows if you can find them! Or, a reception space with a glass ceiling. Hello greenhouses, and conservatories! A reception space with super high ceilings is also great for letting in that stream of magical natural light. And, if none of the above are available at venues in your area, a gorgeous white tent will do the trick during the day, and come nightfall you can light it up with rows and rows of twinkle lights!!

Indoor/Outdoor Options

The amazing thing about hosting your wedding in spring is that you have the opportunity to mix your reception with indoor AND outdoor elements. A venue that has the ability to host your ceremony outside and your reception inside is a great way to take advantage of the season. What about a wedding day where your guests enjoy signature cocktails and a carving station outside on the patio or veranda before moving inside for dinner & dancing?

Want to keep the indoor/outdoor option open to your guests all night? Talk to your venue about the availability of standing outdoor heaters for nightfall when the air gets cooler. If your venue does not offer them as part of your wedding package, check what their limitations are on hiring an outside rental vendor to provide them. Keeping that outside space open for the duration of your wedding day is a great way to provide your guests with a break-out area for conversations and connections!

The Grounds

A spring wedding venue that can double as the location for your wedding portrait location is an absolute must!
