Traditionally, summer has been the most popular time for a wedding and this is reflected in the price. Some couples we meet want to pick a date with guaranteed sunshine but let’s face it, in this country; no time of year offers that assurance and with the allure of cheaper spring rates, it is fast over taking the summer for the most popular season to tie the knot.
Here at UK Mobile Discos we love spring weddings and here are 3 reasons why…
‘There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.’
When planning a spring wedding you need to make sure you are prepared for any eventuality, you can only expect the unexpected. When the sun shines though, is it blissful and a much more pleasant heat than what you can get in the height of summer.
Some assume that this instability means that the whole event should be held inside but this simply isn’t true. Plan your outside elements but just make sure you have a contingency, whether that be enough stylish umbrellas for everyone or a ‘just in case’ tent on stand-by, there is always a way to embrace the beauty of spring in all its unpredictable glory. If you do plan on spending some of the event outside make sure your guests know, so they can plan their attire appropriately too.
Most of the time, when people plan spring nuptials, they have considered the unpredictability of the climate and so do prepare accordingly. We have seen many summer weddings quickly become mud baths because sunshine has been assumed. Spring couples seem to be more astute when it comes to the weather and the events are often better as a result.
Colours are really important in setting a wedding style. It is one of the first decisions that couples have to make as all their purchases need to be in alignment with the theme, when couples decide on a scheme they often take the season into account.
People only used to go for pastel colours on a spring wedding but these days the colours vary a great deal and can be far more vibrant than years gone by. Yellow, pink, violet, teal, green and cream; as the buds blossoms, the colours we see in the environment are often reflected in the beautiful weddings we see at this time of year.
Robin Williams once said that ‘spring is nature’s way of saying let’s party,’ and what better party to throw than your own wedding. We DJ at weddings all year around and each season has its own positives but there is something unique about spring that can’t be quantified.
Spring is a time of new life, of optimism and a time to look forward to the long, exciting days ahead. Everything is new, fresh and invigorating, heck, even the rain smells good! The air is crisp and yet warm and as you start your married life, the birds are hatching and the flowers are blossoming. What a perfect time of year to say I do.
Whatever time of year you tie the knot, you will need a soundtrack unique to your special day. Here at UK Mobile Disco we provide experienced DJ’s that come fully insured with PAT tested, high-quality equipment. For more information and how to book click here.

Hit the spot brilliantly - Great tracks, Great lights: the 17 & 18 year olds danced hard all night and Richard handled the general chaos and party overload with good humour. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for other events." - Rebecca
