How to Plan for a Different Season When Postponing Your Wedding
Today I have the lovely Tash from Musk Wedding Films talking all about how to plan for a different season when postponing your wedding. It is such an unprecedented time for us all, and as an industry we want to help as much as possible. Postponing a wedding is devastating to say the least, but the lovely Tash has put together some great ideas to help you still plan the most epic day!
Introducing the wonderful Tash from Musk Wedding Films!
Getting out there filming weddings feels like a distant memory and I miss it so much. I’m sure we are all missing our normal routine and are dying to get back to what we know. Being a wedding videographer means I am extremely lucky to be able to see weddings any time, any month and any season so I can give advice on trends and ideas on how to upheave an entire planned day to a brand-new season if necessary.
If you’re one of those brides that have had to postpone your wedding and are feeling a little bit sad, I want to try to give you a few tips to help get you feeling excited again!
I’ve had lots of brides postpone their Spring or early Summer weddings to later this year in the Autumn or Winter. A completely different season to what you’ve been planning towards since you said Yes.
I want to show you why your wedding is still going to be frickin incredible in those months, so please don’t feel disheartened you won’t have the Spring/Summer wedding of your dreams. You will have something that is EVEN BETTER. I promise.
You & Me in any Weather
One of the main reasons people choose a Spring/Summer wedding is because of the weather. However, in the UK this is something that cannot be guaranteed. Fair enough it may be a bit warmer, but remember heat is not always a good thing on a wedding day when you’re wearing a wedding dress or your best three-piece suit. I know for a fact my other half would need about 4 spare shirts. You can still have glorious weather in the Autumn and Winter! In fact some of my most sunny weddings have been in October and January!
How to Style a Change
Most of the styling you had planned for your original date can be moved straight over to your new date, so don’t worry about this element. Perhaps adding in a few more candles to create a warmer feeling amongst your guests could be an idea.
The flowers may need to be changed due to the season being totally different. It’s the florist’s job to know exactly what works for each season so trust them. This is not something to panic over at all! Late Summer and Autumn blooms are to die for. With Winter bouquets, think lush green foliage with gorgeous winter roses and berries to bring in pops of colour. I’ll leave this to the florists to convince you as they’re the experts!
Also think about buying some coats or cover ups to add to your outfits. It can really add to your whole look.
Light and its importance for your Photography & Film
And finally, lighting. This may not even be something you think about, especially when you had planned for a wedding in the earlier seasons where the daylight hangs around for a lot longer. But as you’ve guessed, it will get darker much quicker. You can look into having an earlier ceremony so you can enjoy more of the daylight. Also, have a think about whether you can source some cheap fairy lights or festoon lights to hang outside. Fairy lights can completely transform a space and can make for some killer photos and video footage. Speak to your venue first to see if this is possible! They may even offer this themselves. Anything you bring into the venue will probably need to be PAT tested. So make sure you consult your venue first if this is something you’d like to look into.
In these weird times, I hope I have given some of you some ideas to take away and give you a little light at the end of the tunnel. Your wedding will happen. And it will be even better. I promise.
