Perhaps you and your fiance are a nerdy duo who envisions their wedding with magical games and decor.  There have also been many popular themes in past weddings such as Alice in Wonderland and even Game of Thrones.

Picking out wedding themes can be one of the hardest planning tasks that every bride and groom is faced with. Some couples prefer the romantic route.  Some couples like to keep things fresh and modern. When you pinpoint the theme of your dreams, you can officially move forward with the rest of your wedding planning. But, if you’re still on the fence about which direction you want to go for your big day discuss with your partner your favorite themes. Picking a theme is the best way to start your planning process.

Fall In Love

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons for a wedding.  Fall comes along with gorgeous weather, and spectacular scenery.  The color of the leaves changing in the trees, the delicious breezes that make the leaves fall in dazzling shades of red, brown, yellow, orange and green.  If planning a fall wedding, take advantage of the amazing photo opportunities in the outdoors that nature will provide for you.  Do not be afraid to embrace natures backdrop.  Imagine the leaves falling all around you, the subtle wind whisping through your hair as your photographer snaps memories to last a life time on your big day.

Prepare prepare prepare! During the chillier days in the season there can be unpredictable weather.  It is important to make sure you have all your bases covered, especially when it comes to photos.  Remember that your photos are memories some candid, some posed, but all so beautiful and that you get to cherish for the rest of your lives.  So needless to say, photos are crucial on your big  day

Consider fall patterned coverups for you and your bridesmaids, for example shawls to wrap around your shoulders to make for cute photos and to keep you from being chilly if the air is crisp that day.  This can also double as a gift for your wedding party.  During this time you should consider comfortable footwear to change into as you may be trapsing through slippery wet leaves and grass.  I recommend designating one person from your wedding party to stash umbrellas somewhere in case of a change in weather.  Again preparation is key ladies!

Choose fall themed games that can be played inside or outdoors depending on weather, such as pumpkin tic tac toe, pumpkin chess and even pumpkin bowling!  These can keep guests entertained perhaps during cocktail hour or while taking a break from the dance floor ALL while embracing the fall season!

Say goodbye to spring fling, hello spring wedding!

The spring seasons natural beauty is so romantic with spring associated flora’ls and pastels. Romantic pops of color that nature offers this time of year and the warmth of the season enhance the beginning of wedding season. They say April showers bring May flowers, which are so welcomed and appreciated after a long cold winter.

Calla lily means magnificent beauty and here at Lippincott Manor that is what we see in all our brides.
Freesias symbolize innocence like every father sees in his daughter right before he gives her away.
Hydrangeas symbolize understanding something that is extremely important to sustain a long lasting marriage.

When I think of a spring wedding, I envision pops of soft color everywhere from baby pinks to light teal blues and yellows.  Lets talk FLOWERS!  Flowers in your hair, in the aisle, on your tables, and surely on your wedding cake. If you have envisioned a rich floral wedding day all of your life, spring is the time to do it! Let your feminine side run free. If you are planning a spring wedding, go for soft and calm colors, and let mother nature take part in your selection as much as you can.  Common pieces such as birds, butterflies, and eggs have the ability to prim up the beautiful season of spring, no matter what your theme, this is your time to shine!

Spring is one of the most popular seasons to have a wedding. The weather is perfect (not too hot, not too cold), your flower options for your bridal bouquet and centerpieces are ostensibly boundless, and you are not obligated to have an indoor-only venue experience on your big day!
