Spring has officially sprung in New Jersey! We now have warmer air, refreshing breezes, buds blooming on trees, and sun-filled days, all things that puts us in mind of perfect spring weddings. Here are some reasons to plan a spring wedding in New Jersey.

Top of the list for planning a spring wedding? The beautiful weather, of course! Spring weather alone could be a reason to plan a wedding in this season. We spend all winter dreaming of fresh air and days full of sunshine, so why not have your wedding on a beautiful spring day? You get the beautiful weather, but don't have to account for the cold and snow of winter or the extreme heat and oppressive humidity of summer.
Beautiful spring weather also allows for your wedding to be held at an outdoor venue! If you're dreaming of a romantic outdoor wedding with amazing views and beautiful weather, then spring would be the time to hold your special day. Again, you don't have to worry about the extreme weather (heat, humidity, snow, or cold) that can come with the planning of a summer or winter wedding, and you don't have to account for the bugs that you have to think about if you're planning a summer wedding. If you're planning a wedding down the Shore, everyone will be happy that your special day wasn't visited by greenheads and mosquitos. Greenheads, which are a type of horsefly with (as the name suggests) a green head, are local to the marshes of the Jersey Shore and are famous among locals for their immunity to mosquito repellent and painful bites that are twice the size of an average mosquito bite. They are not what anyone wants to be taking away from your wedding!
With the lovely weather comes more flexibility when planning your event. It's much easier to plan for an indoor reception in a beautiful ballroom with a cocktail hour out on a patio in the spring than it is in the fall or winter when you risk your guests sipping drinks from shivering hands if you hold a cocktail hour outside.
Beautiful flowers from a New Jersey florist are another reason to plan a spring wedding. Fresh flowers are in bloom, and they can make for beautiful landscaping at your New Jersey wedding, no matter if it's indoors, where the landscape can make a beautiful view, or outdoors, where nature is a beautiful venue in and of itself.
