Here’s Why Winter Weddings Are Wonderful

A winter wedding can be absolutely magical! When deciding on your wedding date, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider a date late or early in the year. Heavy textures, rich and bold colors, and crisp weather to name a few! A wedding set for the colder months of the year can be just as stunning and memorable as its seasonal counterpart. 

Here’s a few things that come along with having a winter wedding that can work in your favor. 

Venue Availability & Better Rates

Most locations and vendors book up quickly during the summer months and come with a hefty price tag, whereas those same locations and vendors are available for a lower price during the colder months. Because the fall and winter months aren’t as busy as others, they’ll also be able to focus more of their attention on your big day.

Less Weather Stress

One thing about weddings set in the colder months is that they typically take place inside. By ditching the contingency plan for inclement weather (such as rain), you eliminate a huge source of stress in wedding planning.

Cheaper Travel and Accommodations

Travel and hotel stays are at peak pricing in the summer, when school is out and families take their vacation. Winter weddings allow guests to take advantage of off-season pricing for their travel and accommodation options.

Your Wedding Will Stand Apart

The spring and summer months can get so jam-packed with weddings that your family, friends, and guests can start to get a serious case of wedding fatigue. A January, February or March wedding is likely to be the only one your guests attend that winter which makes it something that people can look forward to and remember fondly.

It’s the Best Time for Black Tiegroom with winter wedding decor

If you’re planning a formal wedding, you’ll hear much less complaining from your guests in black tie attire when it’s cold outside. Tuxedos aren’t meant for outdoor ceremonies in the heat of the summer. However, they are the perfect choice for indoor winter weddings.

Stunning Snowy Wedding Photos

If you’re blessed with a sprinkling of snow ahead of your big day, you can snap some stunning snowy wedding photos that’ll rival any sun-drenched summer snapshot.

It’s Something Out of the Ordinary

The biggest advantage of a winter wedding is simply that it’s something different! From rich and deep color schemes to unique flowers and themed décor, you’ll stand out with your seasonally-inspired elements of style! If you like a romantic style, you can use wispy shades of winter white and lots of earthy green. For a more rustic wedding theme (think “Aspen Cabin”), use lots of wood and deep hues.
