Outdoor Lovers Wedding

A spring Alabama destination wedding lets you tie the knot just as nature awakens into springtime. Imagine butterflies flying, birds singing, and flowers blossoming for the perfect accompaniment to the most romantic day of your life.

The mild springtime is warm and inviting. It’s the ideal temperature for an outdoor ceremony or reception. Spend a day lounging by the pool with your closest friends and family. The more adventurous crew might want to rent an ebike and explore the trails. Even if you have your wedding party indoors, the joyful atmosphere of the South in the spring will be a dream come true for your wedding day. A spring ceremony on a green, luscious farm represents the new life the couple is embarking on together.

Visit Exciting Cities

Alabama has many opportunities for the wedding party and their guests to take a step back from the busyness of everyday life and focus on what really matters. A springtime destination wedding is an exciting way to follow a wedding tradition in an all-new atmosphere. Spend time with your wedding guests before and after the ceremony near the lake or during a leisurely luncheon. Birmingham is two hours from Atlanta. This makes it ideal for a day trip if you want to visit more of the most iconic cities in the South.

Timeless. Rustic. Chic

You can have a modern, timeless, and romantic wedding, decorated with local flowers – like the state flower Camellia. There are also many beautiful vintage stores to shop and locations that let you create a farmhouse style wedding. Of course, you can also have a modern and chic wedding as well.

Resources like authentic barns can be the right wedding setting for a dreamy ceremony. Set the stage and scenery for a fantastic ceremony and reception. You’ll be able to have a balance of all of the right elements. This gives you the opportunity to be in control of all of the details, and your wedding will be the highlight of your destination wedding.

There are so many possibilities when bringing together nature and your wedding party in beautiful Alabama springtime. One idea is to get guests involved.

Ask girls to go wildflower picking and help to decorate the tables with fresh flowers from the valley. Decor with fresh-cut greens and wildflowers brings the whole wedding together with natural beauty.

Another idea could be to have tea time as one of your destination wedding activities. Think herbal teas and traditional tea, cucumber and cream cheese sandwich, classical music playing, and the works. Maybe provide mint juleps or mocktails as refreshments.

You could also plan a barbeque-themed lunch get-together for one of the events during the destination wedding. Set up a picnic, and have a group bike ride together.
