Winter may not be the most popular season to get married, but a Winter wedding can be a fantastic occasion. Planning the big day in accordance with the season gives you thematic options for the decor, the attire and the venue itself.
Obviously the colder weather and potential for snowfall can make planning weddings at this time of year a challenging task but as the trend towards Winter weddings grows the options open to couples improve with every passing month.
A warm and enclosed space is generally recommended for weddings in the Winter months so when you’re picking the perfect winter wedding venue you may wish to consider a big, historic building with open fireplaces. Offering a rustic charm and genuine warmth, the roar of an open fire is hard to beat and will give your guests some fantastic memories along with some excellent photo opportunities.
Weather Proof Venues
At any time of year arrangements need to be made to ensure you’re prepared for extreme weather but in Winter particularly you’ll want to triple check your contingency plans just in case you’re hit by a blizzard on the big day!
You’ll no doubt want some outside space even if it’s exceptionally chilly, for the smokers and anyone who just fancies a little fresh air if the occasion all gets a bit much! With this in mind be sure to prep your deck space in case of freezing and look at patio heaters if appropriate. Many venues will already have the gear you want but if you don’t check first you won’t know!
As much as you want to be prepared for the worst, you also don’t want to be depending on the weather and whilst your magical wedding dream may have featured crisp snowfall, you certainly can’t guarantee it, unless you arrange it yourself!
The good news is you can arrange it yourself so don’t leave it to chance, get yourself some artificial snowfall to complete the picture perfect wedding you’ve always wanted.
