The chill still prevalent in the mountain air, the warm and inviting rays that the afternoon sun offers, the newly arisen greenery as the flow of the creek rumbles nearby...must be April at Blackstone Rivers Ranch. Where no matter the time of year, the surrounding nature provides breathtakingly gorgeous views. While April isn’t traditionally a time of year that many brides and their grooms choose for their wedding, it certainly has its advantages!
Seeing as how April is generally considered as part of the “off-season” for weddings, many find that it is an extremely budget friendly option. Many venues as well as a multitude of professionals in the wedding industry, offer discounted pricing and greater flexibility during the month of April. It is also a great time to book those professionals you really want for your wedding given that many popular wedding professionals are booked during the peak wedding season.
This is also a great time for brides who want to stray from the more traditional wedding décor into something a bit more unusual or even exotic. A unique blend of a couples’ personalities with time tested traditions that make for a distinct and fabulous wedding statement. Cute throw blankets as wedding favors for guests to use during the ceremony. Sparkly disco balls above the dance floor or hanging from trees are especially pretty and add a bit of glitz and glamour as the light hits and reflects off of them. Feathers have long been a favorite for those with allergies or an aversion to using flowers. Long stemmed peacock feathers, fluffy white confections, or even a variety of colorful feathers add a dramatic and whimsical look to any wedding centerpiece, isle runner or bouquet. Switch out rice or bubbles for sparklers and fireworks.
Featuring daytime highs of 65 degrees and typical lows of 35 degrees, April is the perfect time to shake off those winter blues and embrace the coming spring as it offers a sense of renewal and rebirth as couples join together.
