So you’re planning a Winter wedding? Congratulations. You’re a bridal renegade. While Winter is not the most popular month to tie the knot, it is a smart season to consider. You’ll likely find greater vendor availability, meaning that venue you want may not be booked (but steer clear of holiday dates). You won’t have to worry about the sweltering heat and humidity wreaking havoc on your hair and makeup. Winter weddings are in fact, romantic. Today we’re spotlighting three details that make Winter weddings magical.
#1 Winter Accessories Woolen mittens, a cozy scarf, wooly wraps. Winter weddings invite the opportunity to dress up your attire with a warm weather accessory. Temperatures from December to March are going to be chilly in Maryland. Plan ahead by selecting a sweet set that will keep you toasty-especially for those outdoor portraits.
#2 Intimate Indoor Ambiance Cold weather invites us in and gives us the chance to transform indoor spaces into romantic, intimate settings. Stringed lights, candles, fireplaces are all available for creating atmosphere. If your venue does not have a fireplace, no problem- most rental companies have architectural pieces available for you to rent.
#3 Snow You know the line from Father of the Bride when Howard, Frank’s assistant, says, “All I can say is thank God snow is white. It works. You know what I mean? It works.” He’s right. It does work. If it happens to snow on your wedding day, I have no doubt your photographer will figure out a brilliant way to make it work.
If you’re considering a Winter wedding, go for it. There are so many ways to personalize your day and to create a warm, inviting event for your friends and family. Think of all the things you love about Winter (don’t forget the hot chocolate and a cute pair of snow boots) and incorporate those elements into your overall design. Make it romantic, fun and seasonally delightful.
