    • Wedding: March 2015

    I’m in a similar boat to you… We live in Australia, but our extended families, on both sides, all live in the UK. We were dead-set on a late Autumn (fall) early Winter wedding, because we like the cooler weather, but have discovered that our dream wedding venue won’t allow ceremonies prior to 6pm due to religious constraints. So, we’ve pretty much decided to move everything from May/June 2015 to March 2015 so we can have a 6pm ceremony on site during dusk. It doesn’t sound like much, but those few months might mean make or break for our international relatives when it comes to saving up enough to make it out here. 

    We don’t have a theme as such, but plan to draw inspiration from the venue and the changing colours in the garden and surrounding vineyards, so golds, burgandies, yellows and lots of green. Either way with a June wedding or a March wedding, those colours will still look beautiful. 

    My advise is to mention it now. We have, and all of our guests have said it’ll be ok for them. Those that really want to be at your big day will be.

    Another thing to consider is any holidays happening during that time… We have come up against Easter, which is the weekend of the 4th April, meaning it is out for us, as it comes with a 15% standard surcharge- ouch!

    If you want to carry the trick-or-treat candy idea through, there is nothing stopping you… I think it is a really neat idea that guests will love. You could have each table a different colour theme to match your pink/blue/purple/yellow/gold theme, and have the candy corresponding… They’ll love it. 

    At the end of the day, it is your wedding.
