Very few things tend to be as beautiful and magical as a winter wedding. The summer season is filled with stereotypical “dream weddings”, but it’s all to easy to overlook the options and individuality of a winter wedding. Let’s look at how a winter wedding will make your big day a day to remember.
There are several reasons you may opt to have your special day during the winter weather. The most simple explanations? Perhaps you or your sweetie don’t like the heat. Or maybe winter is your favorite time year. Perhaps you just want to stand right out in the crowd. Or maybe you want to fully appreciate a honeymoon in a very warm climate.
Many times winter weddings are more cost-effective because it’s the off-season. Some venues reduce their prices during the off-season to bring in more business. Remember too that a number of places routinely decorate for the holidays; this allows you to definitely spend less on flowers and rentals. And with that snow – just think of the photo opportunities! You will have the ability to be so creative with your photographer, from cuddly fur stoles and cozy boots under your custom made wedding dress to a smooch under the mistletoe.
You won’t have to concern yourself with poor weather ruining your outdoor event. However, a lot of people travel during the wintry weather holidays or head to the south for vacations, so you’ll have to share your wedding date with your guests a lot earlier for them to reserve the date.
There are several ways you can use winter to your advantage. Here are a few ways to get you started:
1. Numerous reception halls, churches, as well as venues decorate for the winter months and holidays. These decorations add flavor in your wedding. For a heat, as well as an intimate feel at your reception, look for a setting with a fireplace, a historic estate, or a private clubhouse. Other winter-themed decorations to take into account: an all-white cake covered in silver snowflakes; ice sculptures; and centerpieces made from sprigs of cranberries encircling pillar candles.
2. The best photographer will have a great deal of ideas for poses not to mention props that will insert that important dash of winter into your photos. In particular, for outdoor photos you will need to wear a wrap or shrug. You can coordinate this with the groom’s attire and huddle with him under a snow-covered pine tree for a unique, everlasting portrait. Skilled photographers are able to capture the sparkling light on the snow while portraying you your groom at your best. Other possible props comprise of snowmen, ice sculptures, holiday decor, poinsettias, and cute boots protruding from under your dress.
3. Guests can be enveloped in winter warmth while they are at your wedding reception with gourmet hot dark chocolate or spiced wine and by dining on warm pumpkin soups, among other winter plates. Possible party favors include spiced hot chocolate mix, snow globes, or dressed-up christmas cookie cutters.
