8 Reasons to Have a Winter Wedding

It’s no secret that summertime is the most popular time of year to get married – hello, June brides! But while the traditional wedding season might occur from late spring to early fall, many brides choose to take advantage of all that winter weddings have to offer. From cost savings to the gorgeous wedding pics, we’re not surprised!

However, if you’re torn between the four beautiful seasons of the year, this blog will help you see why a winter wedding could be the most magical of all. 

Brides, get ready to walk down the aisle in a beautiful indoor wedding venue because, baby, it’s cold outside!

1. Winter Weddings are Romantic

There is a certain romantic charm that radiates from the magic of the winter season. With snow delicately falling from the sky and the temperatures dropping to sweater weather levels, it’s the perfect time to snuggle up with your loved one. Not only that, but your guests will definitely feel the coziness of the whole setting.

With the festive mood of Christmas and New Year flitting through the air, the tone has already been set for a spellbinding winter wedding. 

2. It’s Cost-Effective

As much as you want to splurge on your wedding expenses, it’s also important to take the costs into consideration. Winter is considered as off-season for weddings, which means that you will likely get more affordable offers and undivided attention from vendors and suppliers during December, January, and February. 

If anything, this is truly a great reason to have a winter wedding, so you can take advantage of those off-season prices!

3. Fewer Risks of “Rainy With a Chance of Stress”

Bridezilla and Groomzilla need no introduction. 

No matter how much of an easygoing couple you are, planning a wedding is not an easy task. Getting married usually entails a lot of stress, including the stress about thinking of weather conditions – especially when the venue is outdoors. 

A dreamy garden wedding or ceremony by the beach is always a fun idea, but it comes with the risk of strong winds and downpours that could literally rain on your parade that you’ve been planning for months or even years. A winter wedding traditionally takes place indoors, which eliminates the worry of weather-related fiascos.

4. Lesser Chances of Humidity on Your Wedding Day

Humidity ruins hair and makeup done for a big event, and the bride, her bridesmaids, and all ladies know this too well. Depending on the climate of the place you live in, high levels of humidity could do some serious damage to your wedding day look. 

A winter wedding will save all the ladies the trouble of retouching their makeup or wiping off sweat. One underrated perk of getting married when the weather is cold is that it will keep your hair and makeup fresh and intact! 

5. Winter Weddings Are Unique  

The world has grown so accustomed to following trends that it would be a breath of fresh air to do something out of the ordinary; like getting married during the off-season!  

Let your one-of-a-kind and creative side shine through by planning a wedding that’s out of the ordinary. From the venue, motif, colour palettes, menu, and all the way to the flower arrangements, the possibilities are endless when it comes to planning a winter wedding. If you’re into rustic elements, you can experiment with wood, vintage decor, and touches of lush greenery. If you’re a fan of the ethereal and gossamer, you can play around with delicate blooms, like calla lilies, peonies, carnations, tulips, and hydrangeas. With a little bit of frosted chiffon, you can work wonders for the decor and truly make it a wedding fit for a fairy tale.

6. Winter is the Best Season For Black Tie Parties

If you’re planning on holding a wedding with a formal dress code, winter is the best time to do it. Most people love getting all dolled up and dapper for the holidays, so you can count on the fact that they’ll be excited to do the same for your big day. 

Plus, suits and floor-length gowns are more suitable for cold temperatures. And for the ladies, winter is the ideal time to flaunt your best faux fur wraps to match your dresses!  

7. You Can Indulge in a Different Honeymoon Destination

You can jet set to any honeymoon destination of your dreams during any time of the year, but just imagine how much more you would appreciate the pristine waters of the Maldives or the sunsets in Tahiti after your memorable winter wedding. You and your new spouse will literally have the best of both worlds during this special time; cozy winter romance and sunny days in a tropical paradise!

8. You Will Have Ethereal Wedding Photos

We’re not playing favourites, but we will say that wedding photos taken with a blanket of snow as your backdrop are absolutely divine. 

When the snow falls to create a winter wonderland, nature has already given you natural scenery for exquisite wedding photos fit for magazine covers. With a picturesque landscape at your disposal, the cold won’t even bother you. 

Fun fact: a bright winter day provides the optimal lighting to capture you both under a contrast that glows. Just make sure to have a warm coat and some hot tea ready for you after you’re done striking poses!
