Have the Perfect Cincinnati Springtime Wedding
If you are planning your Cincinnati nuptials for this coming spring, having the perfect spring theme in place and selecting a great location are two essentials for a great ceremony and reception. In addition to theme and locale, the perfect flower arrangements and eye-catching wedding transportation are also aspects of a spring wedding that can make it a memorable event for everyone involved. We’ve compiled a list of ideas for creating a truly spring-tacular wedding Cincinnati this year.
Nothing adds flavor to a spring wedding like booking attention-grabbing transportation for your wedding party. Traditional limousines are always in style, but if you’re looking for something extra, especially for your wedding photos or reception arrival, look into car services that provide non-traditional transportation as well. Consider booking a classic car like a 1940 Buick Special with white wall tires and a sleek black finish, or a vintage 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Limousine with a classic ‘50s look to make your wedding pictures shine. If the vintage look isn’t your style, consider going the pink route with a pink stretch Dodge charger or a pink stretch Hummer. Both are a fun departure from traditional wedding transportation, and they’ll help make your spring wedding your own.
If you want to have fresh flowers at your spring wedding, there are a few varieties that are seasonal, yet also beautiful and unique. Peonies are large, fluffy flowers that bloom in late spring and come in a variety of colors, from pale pinks to deep pinks to reds and even yellows. Peonies are a great spring wedding flower because they bloom in later spring, when most brides will elect to have their weddings due to the fairer weather. Peonies are an ideal choice for a spring wedding flower because they create beautiful bouquets and centerpieces, as well as serving as great decorations. Hyacinths are another spring blooming flower that make beautiful bouquets, have a nice fragrance, and come in a variety of colors as well. Hyacinths can traditionally bloom in colors ranging from white to salmon to pink, as well as lavender and blue, so finding a hyacinth that matches your wedding colors shouldn’t be difficult. Also, cherry blossoms have a short life span but can make gorgeous centerpieces for your reception tables or serve as part of the décor of your ceremony.
There are few ways to inject a subtle spring theme into your wedding’s décor and your reception tables. Form tulip-shaped origami place cards for your reception guests to clear, water-filled vases with flower petals and floating candles inside for your centerpieces, the opportunities to create a spring theme without overdoing it are endless. Some of our favorite spring wedding decor and favor ideas include tealight holders with cherry blossom themes.
You certainly can’t forget location when you’re thinking of planning the perfect spring wedding in Cincinnati, and luckily, Cincinnati has a ton of great destinations for a unique nuptial experience. Take the Redmoor for example, which stands on a beautiful property on Mt. Lookout. Built over one hundred years ago, the Redmoor has served as an avant garde theatre since the 1930s and is now billed as Cincinnati’s premiere event center. The atmosphere is a trip back in time that will add definite flavor to your wedding photos. For a more outdoorsy destination, consider the Cooper Creek Golf Club in Blue Ash, which offers a grand ballroom with room for up to 375 guests and a gorgeous view of the expansive rolling hills of the golf course. Cooper Creek offers an on-site wedding and event planner, as well as catering and a private bride’s room so you can prepare for your big day however you like.
