Winter is the perfect time have the perfect wedding. Winter is a beautiful time of year where the whole world changes color. The frost, snow and crisp air has a certain allure, and having a wedding during one of the most magical seasons of the year and you can be sure to have an enchanting and unforgettable experience.
So, you’ve had your fairytale proposal with 1,000 yellow daisies and now it is time for one of the most exciting chapters of your life – planning your dream winter wedding. Whether you want an intimate affair or enormous celebration, there are so many options to explore, if you want to have your dream wedding during winter. Here are 5 tips for planning the perfect winter wedding.
1. It’s All About The Food
A winter wedding means that you can get really creative with the menu, and steer away from the tasteless rubbery chicken dinners that you’re so good at pretending to enjoy. The best thing about the colder season is the delicious comfort food that comes with it. Casseroles, stews, strudels, pies and roast dinners are all simple dishes that can be made into vegetarian and vegan options, catering to all of your guests. Tasty Table Catering has just the fix for yummy comfort food. Imagine the warm feeling that your guest will enjoy with the tummy-warming foods that can take off the chill and leave your guest feeling full and comfortable.
Your winter wedding should show just how committed you are to your new partner, but let’s not forget the one thing that’s been a solid throughout your life – delicious winter food. So, it only makes sense that your wedding shows just how much you love your partner AND food.
2. Book Outside of the Festive Period
Winter is synonymous with snow and Christmas, which as we all know is one of the busiest times of the year. If your fairytale wedding falls on Christmas Day then make sure you plan ahead in order to book your dream venue. However, if your perfect Christmas Day consists of drinking a bit too much eggnog and falling asleep in front of the Christmas marathon of A Christmas Story or The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, then you haven’t got your heart set on a Christmas wedding. In that case, it’s better for you to book your winter wedding outside of this most festive period of the year.
The majority of venues, vendors and photographers have increased availability for out-of-season weddings. This means it is easier to find a date that everyone can make. Many venues offer less expensive deals and discounts for out-of season winter weddings, so you may even find you’ve saved some extra cash. Saving cash is always a good thing. Our wedding professionals can assist you in this area.
3. Always have an alternative plan.
If there’s one thing we all know about winter weather, it is that it’s incredibly volatile and unreliable. If you’ve planned an outdoor winter wedding with a rustic feeling and a plethora of blankets, lamps and thermals, then it is wise to have a backup plan just incase there are strong winds or stormy weather.
It is also important to remember that in the winter, we lose natural daylight much earlier, as the clocks fall back during Autumn. This is why winter is notorious for darker evenings and mornings, which is why you should plan appropriately for your wedding photos. If you want to have your wedding photos in natural daylight then you could potentially have an earlier ceremony, but this means that your wedding day will be a lot longer for your guests. As long as you’ve provided them with enough food and drink, this probably will not be a problem.
4. It’s All About The Ambiance
Nothing screams perfection more than a cosy evening in front of the fireplace, surrounded by candles, delicious food and loved ones. A winter wedding gives you the opportunity to create warm and cosy ambience and will make everyone feel at home.
Golds and browns paired with soft twinkling lights will create a snug and homely vibe. Draping fairy lights on walls, trees and around the room will help build an intimate and romantic atmosphere, allowing you to take advantage of just how magical a dark winter evening can be. Candles can be even more captivating. Imagine watching the flicker of soft candlelight in your partner’s eyes. It will remind you why you fell in love in the first place. Add a nice glass of wine and the most important people in the world surrounding you, and you have the perfect ambiance. Tasty Table Catering are masters at what we do. We would love to show you how our perfect mixture of artistic food and stunning decor can create an unforgettable event for you.
Another incredible aspect that a winter wedding has to offer is its versatility when it comes to themed weddings. The snowy white backdrop is perfect when it comes to that glitter themed wedding. If you’ve always dreamed of a Harry Potter inspired wedding then picture just how beautiful it will be on a crisp, frosted winter’s day.
Venues on the Main Line are absolutely breathtaking in the winter months. The scenic views allow you to replicate that dream winter wedding coat and outfit you’ve always wanted.
