19 Oct Reason To Have A Winter Wedding
Winter weddings have a lot going for them. Sure, summer weddings are stunning but there are some downsides to consider. Sweltering heat could make a mess of the bride or grooms hair and makeup and with a hectic itinerary packed with other summertime nuptials, some guests might be forced to RSVP ‘no’ to your summer do. But with a winter wedding, you can avoid all that.
Still on the fence about throwing a winter wedding? Then you’ll warm right up to these winter wedding pro’s.
The risk of rain and wind can make the planning period extraordinarily stressful and potentially costly if you need to add a marquee. Taking Mother Nature out of the equation means less stress for you, your vendors, your guests, and your family.
More Venue Dates
Most locations and vendors book up quickly during the summer months and come with a hefty price tag, whereas those same locations and vendors are available for better deals during the colder months.
You’ll have more flexibility to come in and set up early or break down late, as there’s likely not another event right after yours that the venue needs to prep for right away.
Although the time of year might not be the reason you chose a winter wedding, there are many benefits to a celebration aligned with Christmas. Venues may already be decorated adding a more celebratory feel to your special day.
Cheaper Travel and Accommodations
Travel and hotel stays are at peak pricing in the summer, when school is out, and families take a holiday. Winter weddings allow guests to take advantage of off-season pricing for their travel and accommodation options.
The spring and summer months can get so filled with weddings that your family and friends can start to get wedding fatigue A January, February, or March wedding is likely to be the only one your guests attend that winter which gives them something to really look forward to. Another bonus? You’re likely to get your wedding photo back faster in the winter because your photographer is less busy than in the spring and summer months.
It’s Something Different
From the colour palette to flowers and décor, there are elements of the winter season to inspire your theme that will stand out in a sea of summer bunting. Embrace the season by throwing blankets over guests’ chairs or keep them warm by serving a hot signature cocktail.
Some people seriously don’t deal well in the heat. It makes them irritated and not to mention, a sweaty mess. When it comes to weather, you can always add layers to combat the cold, but in the hotter months, well, you can’t exactly take off your clothes. Nothing worse than a sweaty stressed bride and groom for the photos too.
If you’re blessed with a little snow fall ahead of your big day, you can snap some stunning snowy wedding photos that’ll rival any sun-kissed summer snaps…or you can help Mother Nature along…
