Have you ever considered having a winter wedding? Most couples seem to skip the winter season as a possibility for dates when they’re planning their wedding. However, having your wedding in the winter time can be really beneficial for many reasons. Let’s see how winter weddings can really help take some stress out of wedding planning.
Venue Selection: If you decide to have your wedding in the winter time, you’ll have your pick of the best venues. Because it’s a less popular season, you’ll have more options available to you as venues will be less booked at this time. Feel free to splurge a little on your favorite location so that you can make the most of your options. Just because it’s cold, that doesn’t mean that you need to skip the outdoor shots! Look for venues that will look gorgeous even in the winter time.
Beautiful Backdrops: You may be fortunate enough to get a snowy backdrop to your wedding, and the pictures will be absolutely magical. You also have the added benefit of being able to select warmer and richer colors for your wedding, so if you’re especially fond of rich jewel tones, winter will display them to their best advantage. The floral and décor selections will be different than what you see in more traditional wedding season, which will also give you an opportunity to stand out from the crowd.
A Feast of Plenty: Because it’s cooler, you can serve some hearty favorites that might otherwise be a little heavy for the spring or summer. You can also include hot drinks like hot chocolate, warm cider, or have an espresso bar to please your guests. No need to stick to traditional wedding menus, you are free to use your winter wedding to its best advantage.
Winter Accessories: Winter weddings also give you an opportunity to accessorize. Like sweaters or shawls? Those will come in really handy for the winter. Look for ways to stay warm and make the bridal party outfits embrace all the cool of the season.
While every season has its benefits, there are definitely some unique advantages to winter. Take the opportunity to customize your wedding and really stand out from the crowd. If you’re ready to embrace the cold and plan your wedding in one of the most romantic seasons, schedule your consultation and start discussing your options today!
