With a lush, green backdrop and comfortable temperatures around 70°F, it’s no wonder that spring is one of the most popular times for weddings in the Nashville area. Here’s what to expect when it comes to a spring wedding at Rural Hill Farm.
How to pick a spring wedding date
Before picking a spring date for your wedding, consider this:
Check the calendar
Make sure to consult the calendar before setting your spring wedding date! For religious folks, the date for Easter changes each year and some congregations won’t allow marriage ceremonies during Lent. In some cases, choosing a wedding date before Easter can actually save you money as you select your preferred vendors, as this time is traditionally slower for business.
Decide on your budget
When it comes to allocating budget for your wedding venue, you may have more flexibility than you think. At Rural Hill Farm, we require that couples choosing a weekend wedding from April to June book a wedding package, while those looking to save could choose a weekend in March, a Sunday, or an intimate weekday to experience the beauty of a wedding at Rural Hill Farm at a lower price.
Want to get married on a Saturday in May? Book your venue right away! There are only 12 weekends of spring, so if your heart is set on a specific venue in a certain year, you may have to be flexible with the date.
Spring wedding considerations
One of the best parts about choosing a spring wedding in Tennessee is the beautiful wedding photo opportunities. At Rural Hill Farm, we have more than 150 acres of lush landscapes, including a pond which has allowed our past couples to capture some incredibly beautiful wedding photos. Here are some of our tips for making your spring wedding just as magical.
Choose color wisely
Spring weddings are the perfect time for pastel, light, and bright color palettes. From bridesmaid dresses to centerpieces to flowers and more, lean on the colors found naturally in spring to create a timeless, lovely look.
Watch the weather
Spring is the wettest season in the Nashville area, so it’s important to have a plan in place. While many couples choose to have their weddings outdoors at Rural Hill Farm, our pavilion offers a lovely backup in case of inclement weather.
Pick the right shoes
While it may seem silly, the right footwear can make or break your special day. If you’re planning to wear thin high heels, you’ll want to take a look at the aisle for the ceremony to ensure your heels won’t get stuck in any cracks, gaps, or soft grass. Additionally, with a spring wedding, you may be up against some soggy conditions when it comes to finding perfect photo locations. One way to ensure you get the shot you want without ruining your shoes is to simply pack a pair of flats or wedges to keep you above ground while in wet locations.
