Omaha Spring Wedding Guide:
Capture Spring with Your Attire
Spring recalls bright colors, beautiful yet unpredictable weather, and flowers galore. Many couples will incorporate its vibe, aesthetic, and theme into their wedding attire and may ask others to do the same through color, pattern and style coordination.
Your wedding attire will depend on your level of self-expression. But whether the festivities are outside or inside, capture the essence of springtime with colors, comfort, and breathable threads.
Brides who have long dreamed of a dramatic “Say Yes to the Dress” experience will find exclusive, dreamy designs and lots of luxurious accoutrements at high-fashion bridal houses such as Rhylan Lang, Ready or Knot or Noa Brides. These boutique galleries specialize in making each bride feel like a princess.
If that’s not your style, no problem. There are a dizzying array of options when it comes to shopping for wedding finery, and services such as The Knot can help you locate dependable local sources, including David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse.
But many couples that are looking to save money and wander from the well-trodden retail path to find their dresses, button-ups and pants are choosing to shop second-hand. Those who love the thrill of the hunt and living their “reduce, reuse, recycle” values could score incredible bargains at a high-end consignment shop such as The Humble Lily or Esther’s consignment shop. After all, there is no limit to what you can find among countless thrift and consignment shops around Omaha.
Because Omaha weather varies so much, you should prepare for the worst without stressing the weather. Backup umbrellas, rain boots, and jackets are essential, but so is a rain-or-shine attitude.
