Getting married in the winter is becoming more and more popular. The excitement of the season adds to the beauty and romance of a winter wedding. Photos in the snow or with a winter landscape are romantic too. Because it is considered off-season, you can always find things are somewhat cheaper. Here are a few winter wedding ideas to get you inspired as you plan your own festivities.
Don’t feel like you have to stick to traditional colors of the season. If your wedding is in December don’t feel like your colors need to center around red, green or gold. Experiment with colors and choose the color you love. Don’t feel locked into winter attire either. If you want your bridesmaids to wear strapless dresses that’s fine. The important thing is to be flexible and realize they may need to wear a coat or boots when their outside.
Take Advantage of The Season
Winter wedding ideas include blessing your guests with unique gifts. Winter weddings make this so easy because there are so many seasonal items that would work well. Before Christmas weddings can take advantage of personalized ornaments or decorations. Wedding around Valentines Day can incorporate chocolates and other valentine’s candies.
Indoors, Outdoors or Both
If you have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding, don’t feel like you have to give up your dream because your wedding is in the winter. If you do plan an outdoor wedding, make sure you have a backup plan. Consider taking advantage of planning your outdoor wedding in the afternoon when it isn’t so chilly and having the reception inside. Remember if winter wedding photos are important to you, it does get darker sooner.
Other Winter Wedding Ideas
Consider the comfort of your wedding guests. Have available a basket of hats, scarves and gloves. Blankets and throws will be appreciated too. You don’t have to provide new items if you don’t want to, borrow them from friends and family.
