Spring is typically thought of as wedding season. Blooming flowers, warm but not hot weather and sunshine all evoke the image of the fairytale wedding. Winter is not often considered as the ideal time of year, but the wedding of your dreams can happen during the colder months. Think of hot cocoa, sparkling snow flakes and a roaring fire. Cozy, right? Take our winter wedding tips into consideration and start planning the best night of your life!
Since spring is considered wedding season, prices are often through the roof! In the winter, many vendors may be willing to work with you since it is slow season for them. Don't be afraid to ask for a deal! Especially in a venue like a hotel where you'll not only be holding the reception there, but most likely hosting out-of-town guests. Hotels love a full house!
Anticipate paying more for flowers. Depending on where you live, you may not have a lot of options when it comes to flowers. This might mean paying more for your first choice, or being flexible with your options.
Ask your vendors what the game plan is for inclement weather. You don't want to be caught last-minute with a blizzard rolling in and no back up plan! Many vendors can accommodate a change in date just make sure you have it in writing when you sign the contract!
Embrace the beauty of the season! It's easy to plan a beautiful wedding in the spring, but in the winter you can really get your creative juices flowing. Have a winter wonderland with snow flakes and blue lighting, or evoke a cozy winter cottage with rustic decor, warm fire and hot beverages. There is so much untapped potential!
