Planning a wedding can be an exciting yet stressful time for everyone involved regardless of the season. Winter is the off-season for weddings, but it still offers beauty and elegance to any ceremony and reception. Winter weddings are a romantic time for the special couple for many reasons including the serene backdrop of snow. Planning a winter wedding is much simpler than you might think and you will look back happily on the experience.
Keep it Warm
When planning a winter wedding, it is essential to keep everyone comfortable and warm throughout the ceremony and reception. Make sure to give all of your bridesmaids something warm to wrap around them when they are outside even if it is just from the car to the venue. You should, of course, coordinate the warm clothing item to their dress. When setting up the venue, you should place candles around the space to make it warm and inviting for all of your guests.
Timing is Everything
Since it gets darker earlier in the day during the winter months, it is critical to plan accordingly when taking pictures. Make sure to communicate with your photographer the perfect times to take wedding pictures so that you can get the best lighting possible. It is always a good idea to take pictures before the ceremony once everyone has finished getting dressed. When it comes to traveling to the venue, make sure you and your guests leave early in the case of bad winter weather.
Don’t Forget The Meal
When it comes to your wedding meal, you should serve your guests something comforting that will warm them up. When your guests first arrive at the reception, you should have plenty of hot chocolate and hot apple cider available for everyone to enjoy. Soups are always a smart option in the winter specifically hearty soups such as butternut squash.
