Spring Wedding Rush

Tips and ideas to make this your best wedding season yet

Spring is here and with it comes all of the wedding invites common for this time of year. Weddings are not just wonderful occasions to share with our loved ones, they also give us a reason to buy pretty new dresses and shower our soon-to-be married friends with gifts they will cherish forever. Here are some ideas and tips to give you a head start on the spring wedding season!
Wedding Guest Etiquette
Whether it’s the first wedding of the season or your first wedding ever, it is always a good idea to follow wedding guest etiquette. RSVP as soon as the invitation arrives and if it’s a destination wedding, be sure to book your travel in a timely manner to secure the best rates. Also, this would be a great time to send a gift to the happy couple. Not only do you get to cross gift purchasing off of your to-do list, it also shows the couple that you’re excited about and supportive of their upcoming union.
Unique and Useful Gifts
A couple’s registry is obviously a great place to start for gift ideas, but sometimes you want to give
the couple something a little more creative and personal. If the couple is planning a honeymoon to a
tropical destination, putting together a fun-in-the-sun package complete with the necessary SPF and
cute couple accessories, like matching towels, can be a really fun way to show that you care.
Another gift idea is to create an at-home spa package for the newlyweds to pamper each other with.
Fill a large basket with his and hers robes and everything they will need for a relaxing spa day, like
JAFRA’s Soothing Mineral Bath Salts and Royal Olive Body Oil. You could also include his and hers
skin care with the Royal Jelly Ritual for the bride and the JF9 Chrome Skin Care Collection for the
groom, so the bride won’t have to share. ;)
Fabulous Wedding Guest Frocks
This wedding season has amazing options when it comes to wedding guest looks. For day or night
weddings, you can’t go wrong with a classic wrap dress. Try a bold hue like electric blue, emerald
green or ultra-violet, an especially hot color this year. If the wedding is in the evening, a maxi dress
and strappy heels is a great go-to combo. Floral print dresses from mild to wild are another key trend
this spring. These are perfect for daytime weddings from the garden to the beach. Go for fun details that are having a moment like ruffles, dramatic bell sleeves and printed matching sets, and you’re sure to have a stylish, love-filled wedding season
