Seasonal Wedding Planner

Whether you plan to wed in the fall, winter, spring or summer, you can create your dream wedding in Utah. Consider the following seasonal ideas and suggestions when planning your big day.

 —

Fall

(September-November)

 

For more fall wedding inspo see: Gold Rush PC: Rebekah Westover

Catering: Select seasonal eats like bread bowls with leaf impressions, a soup bar, glazed sweet potatoes, and a selection of fresh-baked pies instead of cakes (try apple, pumpkin or pecan). Fall is also the season of artichokes and apples—both are great for eating and decorating, see a list of our preferred vendors, here.

Creative Touches: Incorporate items like wheat stalks, gourds, pumpkins, leaves, raffia and twigs throughout your décor. See a list of our preferred vendors here

Attire: Wedding gowns come in a variety of colors other than white—consider a light gold, champagne or blush-colored gown. See a list of our preferred wedding gown vendors here

Venue: Prepare for rain or shine with large rented tents and/or an indoor facility option. See a list of our preferred venues here

Winter

(December-February)

For more winter wedding inspo, see: Chill Factor PC: D’Arcy Benincosa, SLC

Catering: Include rich, comforting food and drink items like a hot chocolate or apple cider bar, a soup bar, prime rib, steak, rack of lamb, cheese and chocolate fondues, and buttercream, chocolate or red velvet cakes, see a list of our preferred vendors, here.

Creative Touches: Incorporate items like twinkle lights, ribbon, evergreen sprigs, aspen branches, ornaments, crystals, mirrors and feathers throughout your décor, see a list of our preferred vendors here.

Attire: Stay warm and stylish with cozy accessories like a faux-fur shawl, velvet cape, fluffy muff or leather gloves, see a list of our preferred wedding gown vendors here

VenueSidewalks, stairs and parking lots can be icy and slippery in the winter, so have ushers available to help guests get to the door safely, see a list of our preferred venues here

Spring

(March-May)

For more spring wedding inspo, see: Life is Sweet PC: : Mikki Platt

 

Catering: Choose citrus fruits like lemons and limes, fish, pork, chicken, baby vegetables and green salads for a refreshing menu.  See a list of our preferred vendors, here.

Creative Touches: Incorporate items like parasols or umbrellas, polka dots, bird and butterfly motifs and cherry blossoms throughout your décor. See a list of our preferred vendors here

Attire: Spring lawns are often soggy from rainstorms, so consider wearing wedge sandals rather than heels so you won’t sink into the ground when walking around or taking pictures. See a list of our preferred wedding gown vendors here

Venue: Backyard weddings are ideal in warmer spring months. Consider renting upscale portable restrooms like Royal Restrooms (royalrestrooms.com) rather than having guests traipse in and out of your home.  See a list of our preferred venues here

Summer

(June-August)

For more summer wedding inspo, see: Real Wedding: Katy + Spencer PC: Becky Leung

Catering: Select flavored waters, a lemonade bar, fresh fruit, pasta salads, potato salads, corn on the cob, barbecued meats, and an ice cream bar for a casual summer menu.  See a list of our preferred vendors, here.

Creative Touches: Incorporate items like picnic blankets, Adirondack chairs, flower motifs and seersucker patterns throughout your décor. See a list of our preferred vendors here

Attire: Wear a hoop slip underneath a full gown. Hoops move a gown’s fabric and netting away from your legs, making it easier—and cooler—to move around. See a list of our preferred wedding gown vendors here

Venue: Summer temperatures can be scorching hot. If your ceremony is outside, think carefully about where: North- and east-facing locations, and shaded areas, are your best bets. Consider providing guests customized fans or personalized water bottles.  See a list of our preferred venues here
