While most couples gravitate towards a summer wedding, the winter months can the perfect time of year to say I do. Summer weddings are stunning, but the sweltering heat can be stressful for any bride, and avoid your guests experiencing wedding burn out from weekend after weekend of attending another summer wedding. With a summer wedding, you can avoid the stress of a sun-kissed ceremony and enjoy the benefits of a snowy wedding. From better honeymoon options to no weather worries, here’s why a winter wedding will make you the talk of the town!
No Weather Worries
In the winter it’s a guarantee the temperature will be low so all wedding celebrations will take place inside. Firstly, that takes away the worry of humidity playing havoc on your hair and make-up, but also gives you room to plan the perfect indoor wedding. Your guests will be expecting winter weather so be dressed for it, even if it rains! With the weather not playing a major part in your wedding celebrations, any snow or winter sun will be the icing on the cake, that your photos will love.
What could be more romantic and fairy tale-esque than snow falling on your wedding day. If you’re lucky enough to have a real-life winter wonderland on your wedding day, they’ll make for some stunning photos you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Great Availability and Price Point
Overall, winter isn’t peak wedding season so you’ll have your pick of venues for your big day. Summer weddings book up venues and vendors very quickly and come with a hefty price tag, whereas the same venue and vendors will be available at a much lower price during overcoat season. To get themselves through the winter season, many offer incentives for couples, for example, complimentary bubble to all winter weddings in January and February.
Additionally, because travel and hotel stays are at peak pricing in the summer, winter weddings will allow your guests to take advantage of off-season pricing for their travel and accommodation options.
The winter months are the perfect time to visit paradise locations such as the Maldives, South Africa, and the Caribbean because they’re in their summer season. Whereas if you go on your honeymoon in July and August, you’ll pay twice as much to enjoy the monsoon season! What could be more perfect from saying I do in a winter wonderland and then starting your marriage off on a sun-kissed beach?
The sunset’s earlier in the winter so the majority of your celebration will most likely be an evening event. This is the perfect setting for a formal black-tie event, to rival any Jay Gatsby party. It’s the perfect time to have cocktails on offer and enjoy the merriment of the season.
