Advantages to Having a Winter Wedding!
Winter weddings have a lot going for them! Really! Yes, we know that summer weddings sure are stunning, but there are a few downsides to consider. But, when you plan a winter wedding, you can avoid those downsides and get stunning snowy wedding photos, featuring holiday-themed wedding decorations, and more. If you’re not convinced, keep reading, being a winter bride or groom is basically the best!
Reasons to get married in the winter season…
One thing about winter weddings is the lack of stress about the elements since they do tend to take place inside. Unlike planning a wedding in the summer, when the risk of rain and wind can make the planning period stressful and potentially costly if you need to add a tent, or have a back-up plan in place.
More Venue Date Availability and Better Rates
Most venues and vendors book up quickly during the summer months and often come with a large price tag, whereas those same locations and vendors might be available for a lower price during the colder months of the off-season. Because the winter months aren’t as busy as others, they’ll also be able to focus more attention on your big day.
Although the festive time of year might not be the reason you chose a winter wedding, there are many benefits to a celebration aligned with the holidays. It’s very likely that any venue you choose will already be decorated for the holiday season adding an even more celebratory feel to your special day.
No Summer Wedding Season Fatigue
The spring and summer months can get so jam-packed with weddings that your family, friends, and guests can start to get a serious case of wedding fatigue. But, a January, February, or March wedding is likely to be the only one your guests attend that season (unless of course, you’re living in the deep south or somewhere very warm), which makes it something that people will really look forward to.
Something a Little Different
From your decor color palette to flowers, there are many elements of the season to inspire your theme, meaning that your wedding decor will stand out in a sea of peonies and summer brights. You can embrace the season even further by throwing blankets over guests’ chairs or maybe keep them warm by serving a hot signature cocktail, like a rum toddy, cider or mulled wine.
It’s the Best Weather for Black Tie Events
If you’re planning a formal wedding, you can bet you’ll hear much less complaining from your wedding party and guests in black-tie attire when it’s cold outside. Tuxedos really aren’t meant for outdoor ceremonies and cocktail hours in the blazing heat of the summer, however, they are the perfect choice for indoor winter weddings!
You Won’t Be a Hot and Sweaty Mess
Some people really don’t deal well in the heat! The heat simply makes them irritated, cranky, and not to mention, a sweaty mess. So, when it comes to weather, you can always add layers to combat the cold, but in the hotter months, well, there’s only so much you can take off and still be wedding (or publicly) appropriate.
Stunning and Magical Snowy Wedding Photos
If you’re lucky enough to be blessed with a sprinkling of snow ahead of or on your big day, your photographer can capture some stunning snowy wedding photos that’ll rival any sun-drenched summer photo!
