The winter season may be famous for holiday parties, runny noses, and scraping ice off the car windows, but I think there's more to it than meets the eye.
Weddings, for instance. Although mostly held during the spring and summer months, for obvious reasons, I think winter has its own treasures to offer to-be wedded couples. The weather's frosty, which makes inside so much cozier, and there are so many beautiful options when it comes to decorations, themes, and winter wedding wear. Plus, if you want to build your theme around a holiday, you have three major ones to choose from: Christmas, New Year's, and Valentine's.
Here are some more reasons why you should have a winter wedding.
1. Venue Selection
Normally, you might have to reserve your spot at your ideal venue a year in advance, but booking a winter wedding almost guarantees you'll get the date you want since most couples don't consider the season of snow.
2. Don't Sweat It
During the cooler months you and your guests won't have to worry about makeup meltdowns, hair gone flat, or dripping sweat.
3. Guest Availability
Winter is a notoriously slow time for most people, unlike spring and summer when vacations reign supreme. So the possibility of more guests being able to make it to your wedding is quite high.
4. Deals and Discounts
Vendors are more willing to give discounts during the slow winter season. Talk with your top picks to see what kind of deals they're offering.
5. Great Photo Ops
Winter provides nice lighting for photographs, especially earlier in the day. And if it happens to snow, all the better. A winter wonderland wedding can be so dreamy.
6. Be Different
People expect a spring or summer wedding, but getting an invite to a winter wedding will stand out. They won't be able to forget the beautiful decor, winter atmosphere, and glamorous details simply because it's different from the norm.
Winter can be a real drag, especially the months after Christmas when all the cheer and merriment has subsided. Having a winter wedding gives you something else to plan and look forward to, extending the seasonal spirit and magic.
