10 Jul Top tips for planning a winter wedding
It might be a little on the late side to start thinking about planning a winter wedding for this year, but if you are planning on saying I do in 2020 or beyond, then now is the perfect time to set about putting all those key things in place for your winter wedding.
So, where do you start when it comes to planning a winter wedding?
Here are some of our top tips to get you where you need to be.
Choose the right venue
When you are planning a winter wedding then chances are that the weather means that you need to head inside for the majority of the entire day.
This means that you need to be 100% sure that your venue is exactly what you want it to be.
You will need to have enough space inside for all your guests to comfortable sit in and you will need to make sure that it is suitable for taking photos too.
Think about festive flowers
Flowers are not exactly going to be in season when you are planning a winter wedding, but this just means that you might need to get a little creative about what you choose.
Winter flowers are not only beautiful, but they are quite dramatic too.
This includes ivy, holly and mistletoe too.
You can also take a look at poinsettia and pine boughs too.
Offer up some warming winter food
During a summer wedding most couples opt for food that is in keeping with the time of year.
This means that hog roasts, barbecues and buffet style food is on offer.
However, when the weather outside is cold and less than inviting, then you can offer food that is slightly more warming.
This includes soups, chilli and crumble for pudding too.
Keep yourself warm
As a bride one of the most important decisions that you are going to make for your wedding is all around your wedding dress.
Wedding dresses are beautiful, but they are not made to keep you warm, especially during the winter months.
Thankfully, there are plenty of things out there that can be worn by brides in order to keep them nice and warm during their big day.
Some of our favourites include wraps and shawls, as well as faux fur jackets which can be popped on too.
Planning a winter wedding is great fun and it can open up some beautiful colour schemes and themes that you might not have thought of for a summer wedding.
So, if you are looking to save yourself some money as well as have a beautiful day, then a winter wedding could be just what you are looking for.
