5 Things We Love About Boston Weddings in May | Saphire Event Group

May is a perfect time of year to say “I do”. Spring showers give way to warmer weather and many Boston wedding venues are decked out in full bloom. In an area of the country with four distinct seasons, many Boston wedding locations will offer ways for you and your guests to truly enjoy all that springtime has to offer. Whether you choose a downtown locale, the Greater Boston area or even a cape cod wedding these 5 things we love about spring will ring true.

  1. Gardens

    If you are hosting a May wedding, why not choose a wedding venue that has stunning gardens to hold an outdoor ceremony. With flowering trees, blossoming bushes and gorgeous flowers, your wedding photos can be nothing short of show stopping. At SEG, our Saphire Estate location, which is on Boston’s South Shore, has stunning gardens and lovely lake views. Our team of gardeners and landscape artists are on-site weekly maintaining our picturesque grounds.

  1. Lush Lawns

    April showers may indeed bring May flowers, but they also bring stunning lush green lawns. Florals that look like they were handpicked from a field along with lots of greenery top our list of favorite wedding trends. If this sounds like your style, there is no better backdrop than the gorgeous greens of a golf course and The Villa at Ridder Country Club will not disappointment. This SEG property offers multiple venue spaces to suit your wedding style, rolling golf course views and serene woodlands that are the perfect backdrop for your May wedding.

  1. Flowers

    May is a great time of year for those special spring blooms that can get pretty pricy in the off season. If a wedding filled with gorgeous blush peonies is coming to mind, we are already on the same page! Maybe you have chosen a downtown Boston wedding venue with limited outdoor space, no worries. You can always bring the outdoors in with stunning cherry blossom trees; a springtime staple.

  1. Color

    The season of new life, spring is the perfect time to bring lovely color palettes into your wedding décor. From pastel peach to vibrant shades of pink, the key is choosing a venue with a neutral color scheme. This detail is so important because it allows your chosen wedding colors to take center stage. Another factor is making sure the ballroom and property details match your wedding style. Whether it’s rustic or romantic, a well finished space requires less décor, which in turn will save you money! Now you can focus on a few simple ways to showcase your wedding colors. Some of our favorites are floral centerpieces, lovely linens or adding strategically placed uplighting to the room.

  1. Weather

    Us New Englanders spend at least a portion of the cold winter months dreaming of spring. As the snow turns into rain, we anxiously anticipate those first few warm days. May is known for its mild temperatures and low humidity, which are great for those strapless dresses and loosely curled hairstyles. Gift your bridesmaids with monogramed pashminas so they are ready for a brisk spring sunset. What a picture perfect photo that will be!
