What season speaks to you? Most of you dolls probably planned your wedding for the season that truly makes you go “Awww yeah baby! Bring on the wedding porn!”, but for girls like me in the very beginning stages of planning, all of the stylish elements of each season is overwhelming and confusing. I love the coziness of a winter wedding (candlelight, cableknit, hot chocolate), but I love the freshness of a summer wedding (happy colors, sunshine, linen, ripe berries)!! And with every new Martha Weddings issue, I suddenly am re-inspired and am set to scrap my attraction to the previous season. What season do you love, which one did you pick for your wedding, and do you ever feel like you a diabetic in a candy shop when confronted with hot sexy wedding ideas that are not for your season?

First choice: Autumn
Second choice: Spring
I don’t think I’d even consider a summer or winter wedding…the way things are going, just because I haven’t really made any decisions yet and time is ticking, I think we will have an autumm wedding 🙂

We got requests for March, it gave me a year to plan, so we went with it. I would love a fall wedding too though.

I am super excited about having a spring wedding, but there are definitely elements from fall weddings that I really love too!

I have always dreamed of a fall wedding. It is my favorite time of year and it would just be so special to me. But, circumstances are conspiring against me on this one and now I’m starting to think a winter wedding might be really nice. Especially if it snowed!

Spring, hands down! I simply cannot fathom getting married at another time. The symbolism of new life, the freshness of the world, the feeling of renewal…there’s just no better time for a wedding in my book!

Winter, for sure! But we’re ignoring the conventions of what you’d expect for a winter wedding – we’re going with bright yellow! 🙂

I wanted a Spring wedding (lavender and green) but I ended up with a late summer, early fall wedding. I was outvoted by Hottie Hubby and family.

first choice: fall. second choice: winter. i got my second choice, but i’m kind of falling in love with it 🙂
i could never be a spring/summer bride. everything about fall/winter just speaks to me…warm and cozy indoors, fireplaces, awesome food, family, holidays, etc. it feels more glamorous to me, and it allows me to wear a heavier dress 🙂
that’s not to say that spring/summer weddings aren’t amazing!! i love them too!

Totally spring! It’s the perfect season for bright flowers, tropical vacations, and outdoor picnic ceremonies. Plus spring has the whole metaphorical “new beginnings”, “rebirth”, “new life” gives such a great meaning to weddings. A little cliche, but honestly it’s perfect for me.

Gosh, this is tough one for me to answer. On the one hand I love the rich hues and crisp air of an autumn wedding, but on the other hand, I’ve kind of always wanted a beach wedding.
I wonder if anyone’s ever successfully pulled off a “wedding for all seasons”?
Like, the ceremony is spring-themed, maybe cocktail hour is summer themed, dinner reception is autumn themed and then there’s an “afterparty” that’s winter themed.
You’d have to have one HECK of a venue (and budget) to pull that off but if it was done well it would be AMAZING!!!!

If I could get married outdoors on a sunny summer afternoon, I would be thrilled. But since I’m Allergy Girl and he’s Dehydration Boy (he doesn’t have a colon anymore), it’s a no go.
Plus, our early spring wedding is on our four-year anniversary. 🙂

Hahaha, yeah, like a lot of you girls, allergies certainly play into why I’m not throwing a Spring bash. All of my friends and family have horrible allergies (except me!). I COULD be super selfish and have the Spring wedding I dreamt of in my childhood (which centered around a May Pole and ponies. SWEET!), but I’d probably be the only one sober at my wedding then. Everyone else would be drugged out on allergy medication.
