When setting a wedding date, most couples choose the spring or the summer. A fall wedding can also be dreamy with all the warm, intense colors on display and the sense of new beginnings in the air. Winter is usually the last season couples choose for their big celebration. Once the holidays start approaching it is hard to plan such a demanding event and it’s definitely more difficult to have a great turnout considering that your guests will probably have plans to go somewhere. On the other hand, if you plan smartly and way ahead of time, a fairy-tale winter wedding might turn out to be what you were looking for.
The biggest advantage of a winter wedding are the prices no doubt. Since it’s not the high season, you can book a lot of very nice restaurants or hotel venues, like ballrooms, for much less than they would cost you in the spring or the summer. So, if you’re on a budget, you should consider a winter wedding.
Luckily, the predominant winter color is white. It has white wedding written all over it. In addition, the holiday spirit gives way to so many creative ideas you can employ to set a joyful mood for your guests to enjoy and inspire them to share your happiness and celebrate. One of the most important tips to remember is to invite everybody as soon as you set the date so that they know way ahead of time not to plan anything else.
If you do decide to have the ceremony outside, inform the guests to dress accordingly. Also, pamper them later with the ultimate winter delights by setting up special bars to keep them warm and get them tipsy. Winter couples usually treat their guests with a selection of hot cocoa with all the delicious extras like almonds and peppermint. There are also options to install a bar serving hot cider and hot wine. Once the blood gets pumping, the party goes on and on. Finally, everyone ends up enjoying the view of the snowy outdoors through the windows while sipping a hot drink and dancing the night away.
