We get it. There are about a million different options when planning your big day, one of which being the date. How will you decide between the sunny afternoons of May and breezy evenings of August? Let us walk you through the benefits of each season and how you can navigate the year in accordance to your big day!

Winter

 

Does the holly jolly energy surrounding winter days of December and January make your heart sing? If so, a winter wedding might be your ideal season! Winter weddings allow so much opportunity for fun color schemes and even more fun accessories! 


 

Decorating your Winter wonderland with festive and timeless garland, arrangements of Evergreen greenery, dark red Helleborus petals, and classic white Roses are just a few options to tie together the eye-catching aspects of your winter wedding. Offering blankets as guest favors for your family and friends to wrap up in during the reception is also a darling opportunity to have the winter season play into your big day!

 

Choosing a dress for the winter can be tricky, especially if you fall in love with a dress that doesn’t ‘fit’ well with your wedding date. Thankfully, at Love Birds, Bridal Boutique custom sleeves can be made to add that wintery flair to your perfect dress and are guaranteed to match perfectly with the help of our designers, and our in-house seamstress. If sleeves are not your choice of style, but you’re still seeking a winter addition to your dress, we have a multitude of fun options for removable overcoats that are guaranteed to give you that individualistic touch.

Summer

 

Is the beach your happy place? Do you LOVE having the sun shining on your skin and feel most alive when the temperature gauge shows triple digits? A summer wedding in South Mississippi is ideal for you! The summer provides so many opportunities for fun bridal activities and venue options! 



Cold treats are a must-have during the hot months of summer, so having an ice cream bar for your guest is a sweet way to cater to children who attend your wedding or guests who just love a cool scoop of their favorite flavor to help combat the heat.

Any bar-style addition serving sweet treats such as ice cream, snowballs, or even s’mores are adorable ways to create a ‘back-yard bridal’ feeling to your reception no matter where it is taking place. This style can also be achieved by decorating with fairy lights, having your guest sit at picnic tables, or serving a family-style back-yard barbecue at your reception. Don’t forget to mix up a few pitchers of sweet tea and lemonade for that classic southern touch!

 

Depending on your summer color palette, you could be choosing to dress your bridal party in soft pink, baby blue, or stunning turquoise. Regardless, having your bridesmaids in dresses that suit their body types, and are comfortable to wear in the heat of summer months is paramount. Selecting multiple styles in the same color, or corresponding colors is an option we make easy here at Love Birds Bridal Boutique. We have a wide array of colors and styles that are sure to fit all of your girls in a way that makes them feel uniquely beautiful, and we even offer discounts on bridesmaid dresses for parties belonging to brides who join the Love Birds Bridal family by purchasing their wedding dress with us!

Spring

 

Picture this: the flowers are blooming their brilliant colors of pinks and yellows, a cool breeze combs thru the branches of the trees, swaying them ever so slightly. You begin to the happy song of birds soaring above you and exhale calmly; taking in pure spring bliss.

 

One of the many perks of having a wedding in the spring is the endless options of color palettes. Pastel colors are extremely popular in the springtime, reigning in colors of joy, and new beginnings headed into your new journey as a Mrs. Here at Love Birds Bridal Boutique, we recommend incorporating your spring pastel color choices into your bridal paper products. Creating artwork and designing all of your paper needs from Save the Date to wedding reception Menus has never been so easy with our in-house artist and paper products designer.

 

While planning a Spring wedding, one thing to keep in mind is the unpredictable weather, especially in South Mississippi! One hour it can be sunny and blue-skied, but the next might be gloomy and rainy. Don’t let this ruin your big day! Overcast or rainy days often allow photographers to capture the beauty of your wedding with much more natural light, not to mention the fun you could have with your new husband while playing in the raindrops!

Fall

 

Festive home-cooked food, falling leaves, tints of orange, yellow, and red, and a blissful 70-degree afternoon is what the Fall season is all about, making it the perfect time for a wedding! Fall is the perfect opportunity to use outdoor venues and play with fun food and beverage ideas to celebrate the changing leaves with your wedding guests!

Vintage and western chic themes are extremely popular themes for weddings in the fall. In South Mississippi, there are so many beautiful outdoor venues available to host your fall fairytale wedding.

 

One of the most festive portions of fall is the food and drinks. Planning a food and beverage menu can be a tricky part of preparing for your wedding day. Considering a specialty fall drink would be an adorable fall addition to your big day that is guaranteed to get your guests in the fall mood! Check out the following recipe for an Apple Pie cocktail we have fallen for ourselves!




The colors of fall are unmatched by any other season, allowing brides to dress their parties in pallets of green, orange, and golden-brown. These colors show up seamlessly in photography and provide a homey fall time feeling for the entire bridal party. Here at Love Birds Bridal Boutique, we carry an extremely wide array of bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses, and tuxedo colors perfect for your fall fairytale.
