There is always something special about winter weddings. The climate, the breezy weather, and starry nights feel so magical when you hold your partner’s hand and take the oath to stay together forever. For many couples, it’s like a dream come true. Well, winter is here, and if you’re planning to get married, then this is the best time to do it.
But a winter wedding is not that easy as it seems to be. It requires proper planning because at this time of the year the winter weather can be the most unpredictable. There are a lot of things that you’ll have to look after to make your winter wedding perfect. So, if you’re planning to get married this season, then check out this list of five tips that you should consider for your winter wedding.
- Choose a Perfect Venue for the Wedding
Selecting a venue is the most important thing for winter weddings. If you don’t want your guests to freeze in the cold, then you’ll have to choose an indoor space for the wedding. So, select a place that can be kept warmer during the wedding. You can take help from professional wedding planners to choose a location for your wedding.
- Considering the Decorations
Decoration becomes one of the major concerns for winter weddings because it’s not easy to find the right flowers that go ground with your winter wedding theme. Choose flowers that are in season and available and if you want your budget to stretch that bit further, use jam jars with handpicked flowers and add hessian ribbon or hessian string around it. Flower walls can be a show stopping piece or floral. Why not choose foam roses that look real roses and are perfect for buttonholes, bouquets and centrepieces and you can prepare yourself in advance. Why not have leaves wrapped with hessian string around candles, paper rose petals scattered on the tables and craft favour boxes But, if you’re looking for something special and unique or even other ideas for winter weddings, then check out our wedding decorations.
- Don’t Forget the Lighting
Most couples often choose the night time to get married in the winter season. And lighting plays a vital role in enhancing the overall presence of your winter wedding. You can choose lighting according to your winter wedding theme or look for wedding lighting options over the internet. However, you can also have a roaring fire in the fireplace of your venue or install some twinkle lighting. Make sure whatever you choose it matches both your wedding theme and style.
- Dress to Impress
Whether you’re the groom or bride, you both will be the main attraction of the wedding. Choose an wedding outfit that truly reflects your personality. We know it’ll be cold out there, but this is the most special day of your life, and you don’t want to be wrapped in winter clothes. So, choose something that is both modern yet timeless.
In winter weddings, timing is everything. A little delay in any activity can turn things upside-down. Especially if the venue is outside the city, then make sure you reach there on time. There is no guarantee you’ll get there on time if there is snowfall. Also, make sure your guests are comfortable reaching the location as well as staying there. Maybe even have some hot chocolate, drinks and blankets ready for your guests while they wait.
We hope that these essential tips help you before planning your winter wedding. We know that weddings can be a stressful time but with proper planning and adding those personal touches to the wedding will make your winter wedding memorable.
