Choosing the season is always an important step when planning your wedding. It’s no surprise that the most popular wedding season is between the months of May and October, when pleasant weather and sunny skies prevail.
For many a winter wedding seems out of the question, yet others see it as an opportunity to find great deals and discounts. However, the reasons to have a winter wedding can extend far beyond deal hunting! A winter wedding can be just as enjoyable as any other and still allow you to take advantage of the lower prices and lower competition, a win-win situation!
Aside from being romantic and memorable, read on for 10 ideas that will inspire you to have a beautiful winter wedding:
Cold means more layers and pieces of clothing. It’s a chance to wear layers of fancy fabrics that would have you sweating in the summer. Keep yourself warm with an elegant winter coat, shawl and gloves. Leave warm blankets stacked in baskets for guests to borrow if they feel cold.
Capture the city’s holiday decorations by taking a picture with a Christmas tree and the city’s Christmas lights. Take advantage of the romantic winter atmosphere and go outdoors for a one of a kind wedding photo in the snow.
Acknowledge your guests presence by asking them to sign an ornament and write a message instead of the usual guestbook. You will always remember this day when you decorate your Christmas tree every year.
Decorate your wedding day transport with some Christmas colours and ornamentation. If you want to really get into the holiday spirit there is nothing more romantic than a horse-drawn sleigh through the snow.
5. Reception Décor
Give the place an icy feel with snowflakes on the walls and white and blue colours. Moreover, install twinkle lights on the windows and it will look like you’re out in the frost.
6. Table Décor
Snowflake candles are a great way to not only decorate the table but also keep guests warm during the cold of winter. Snowflake menus are a good match to the candles.
Flowers with hanging ornaments, branches covered with snow, and berries and pines all around the vases will perfectly represent the winter season.
8. Bar & Beverages
There is no better season than winter for cozy and warm drinks. In addition to the usual cocktails you can’t miss hot chocolate, eggnog, hot apple cider, tea and other winter drinks. Guests will be impressed with a cocoa bar.
9. Desserts & Treats
Add peppermint, pumpkin, praline, chestnuts and ginger to your treats to give them a holiday flavour.
After celebrating, how about chilling in a hot chocolate bar? Guests may have the chance to take home some chocolate, syrup and rum. Ornaments are also a great option as your guests decorate their homes for the holidays.
