As the weather is beginning to get colder and the fall and winter are quickly approaching, many are still working on planning their perfect wedding! Although you might not have time to squeeze it in this season, you can definitely get planning for next year!
Lots of couples choose to have their wedding in the spring, summer and fall when the weather is warmer and they can have different elements outside, which means that many couples avoid the winter months. Though they aren’t as popular, they are just, if not more, beautiful! A wedding surrounded by snow can actually be quite cozy and welcoming for the couple and guests.
If you are looking to plan a winter wedding, there are definitely some things you should consider when making things comfortable and easy for your guests, but it is truly a magical time to plan a wedding. If you need some help on how to plan the perfect winter wedding, Indian Creek can help!
If you are planning your wedding outdoors during the winter, you want to be sure that you won’t be freezing up at the altar. A great way to combat the cold is to invest in some great winter accessories! This is a fun way to add a unique quality to your dress by adding a muff, cape or cardigan. For men, consider going with velvet because it is warm and will add some nice texture. Lastly, when it comes to clothing, a great way to be sure you and your bridesmaids are kept warm is by adding some thick tights under your dress. Nobody will be able to see them and they will definitely help to keep you warm outdoors! Plus, these are easy to take off once you get inside for the reception.
Work around holidays
One difficult piece of planning a winter wedding is trying to work around all the holidays and events that happen during that time. This includes Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, New Year’s and Super Bowl Sunday. Planning a wedding too close to one of these makes it so that a lot of your guests could be unable to come. Many people travel for the holidays, which means that they will be out of town if you plan it too close. If you are going to plan a winter wedding, try to pick dates that don’t interfere with holidays or travel your guests may have.
Have a backup
Most of the time couples plan their wedding in the winter because they want a beautiful, snowy backdrop, but you can’t always guarantee the weather. If this is your plan, be sure to have a backup when it comes to photos in case the weather doesn’t deliver the amount of snowflakes you were hoping for. Know your venue and be prepared to take photos without snow in the back. In the same breath, be prepared for a little too much snow. The unpredictability of weather makes it so that you should also be prepared for blizzards or other conditions that make it difficult for your wedding to happen. This is a good example of why you should invest in wedding insurance.
