Winter is a magical time filled with wonderful holidays, snow and more. More and more couples are deciding on having winter weddings. But unlike weddings any other time of the year, there are a few things to consider before you start planning your winter wedding. Here are some things you should think about before setting a date:
Although a winter wonderland wedding sounds amazing to many, the weather isn’t always as nice as it is in Spring, Summer and Fall, which is the biggest thing you’ll have to consider. If you live in an area that sees harsh winters with snow storms and non-stop rainy days, you might have one on your wedding day and that can really ruin a bride’s special day. If you don’t mind the weather, it’s advisable that you get some type of wedding issuance just in case you need to cancel or postpone your wedding due to a big storm. Talk to all of your vendors if they offer this because you don’t want to get stuck with a huge bill for a wedding that didn’t happen because of blizzard. Have a backup plan, too just in case it rains or is foggy the day of your wedding. Get a venue inside and buy some massive umbrellas so that you don’t ruin your dress.
Although the weather is a downfall, one great thing about winter weddings is that you’ll get a huge discount on venues since many are open during this season. A lot of brides don’t want to chance it and venues are often scrambling for any business so they are more willing to give you huge discounts if you book them for a winter wedding. You’ll be able to afford that dream venue you’ve always wanted like a huge mansion or that unaffordable country club. Also, choose a venue where you can have the ceremony and the reception so that guests don’t have to drive somewhere else in potentially dangerous weather.
Another great thing about a winter wedding is that you can find lots of holiday decor for cheap and easily incorporate it it into your wedding. Why not take advantage of the festive season? You’ll be able to find lots of amazing bridesmaid dresses in the perfect shades of red and green. And since many venues are already decorated for the holidays, you’ll be able to save on decorations.
When planning a winter wedding, you’ll also have to plan your attire around the season. It’s cold during the winter, so strapless dresses for bridesmaids with open-toe shoes might not be so great. So it’s wise to pick things that go with the weather so that everyone can be comfortable during your winter wedding. Also, ask guests to dress warmly so that they come prepared.
A winter wedding can still be a beautiful and wonderful affair when you take all the aforementioned things into consideration!
