Breathtaking Spring Wedding Ideas

One of the greatest things about spring weddings is that it’s surprisingly simple to make them look beautiful and even extravagant, even when your budget is tight. We love having weddings at Callaway Resort & Gardens, and have seen a lot of people tie the knot here in brilliantly thought out and whimsical weddings that are perfect for Georgia spring weather. Here are just a few ideas to hopefully inspire some ideas for your own big day this spring.

Consider Whimsical Serve ware

One of the best things about springtime and the change in season is the feeling of whimsy. There is no better time to express this feeling than on your wedding. It’s a great season to be a little creative with how you serve and present menu items on your wedding day. Think about creative ways to present desserts, such as tiny fruit pies in petite mason jars or martini glasses. Let Callaway’s catering team help you customize the perfect menu then we can turn your ideas into reality at one of our dining restaurants, perfect for the reception, ceremony or rehearsal dinner.

Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!

No spring wedding would be complete without flowers. The best thing about springtime flowers is that they grow in abundance. Daffodils, tulips, and daisies are all springtime symbols of new life, and what’s more perfect for that theme than a wedding? You can use flowers unapologetically in nearly every aspect of your wedding, from the décor, to the table centerpieces, name cards, favors, and more. Flowers have a way of creating breathtaking scenes while making the event smell wonderful too.

Have a Spring Carnival

Finally, consider a spring carnival themed wedding with hot dogs on the menu, with cotton candy or individual bags of popcorn offered to guests as well. There are so many things that you can do with this theme and it wouldn’t be difficult to pull off. Add some fun carnival games for the kids and kids at heart to make it even more fun. Incorporate strings of twinkling lights for a breathtaking effect.

Picnic Garden Party

For another brilliant spring wedding reception idea that’s perfect for evenings in Georgia, swap out tables and chairs for quilts draped over hay bales and floor pillows for a picnic garden party that guests will always remember. The menu for such a garden party would be simple as well as budget-friendly: petite sandwiches, light fruits, and salads would be a good fit. Have guests polish off their meal with a glass of iced tea or lemonade.

Start Your Teacup Collection

Springtime is the time for tea parties. There are many ways that you can use teacups in your wedding. You can fill them with wildflowers to use in centerpieces, or even fill them with pudding or a light mousse to serve as desserts for your guests. There are a lot of ideas online for how to incorporate teacups into your décor that are just beautiful. What’s more is that you can usually find them for low prices at thrift stores or consignment shops.

When searching for the perfect venue for your spring wedding, you need to be ahead of the game as much as possible. Guests won’t want it to end, and in that case, have them stay overnight in the Lodge and Spa and continue the spectacular evening by unwinding at The Spa at Callaway, having a friendly, fun golf game, taking a walk around the beautiful gardens or choose from many other activities available. For a breathtaking wedding that your friends and family will truly love celebrating with you and talking about for years to come, call and book your big day at Callaway Resort & Gardens today!
