Winter weddings are glamorous and beautiful, and different from the traditional summer weddings. Since it’s uncommon and the weather becomes an issue, planning a wedding in winter requires creativity and patience. Couples should remember several important points to keep their guests and themselves comfortable during the ceremony.

Winter Wedding Venue

Irrespective of the venue you choose, you can decorate the venue with a wintry theme. If possible, look for a venue with a fireplace to keep your guests warm and cozy. False fireplace is also an option if you do not have a permit for real fires. To live up to your winter wedding theme, use candles and ice sculptures as centerpieces and for decorations. Icicle lights or Christmas lights on the ceiling will lend winter ambience to your wedding.

Winter Wedding Food

You can include all your favorite food on the menu, but make sure to add some winter touches to make your guests feel warm and cozy. Hot drinks like cider, cocoa, and mulled wine are helpful for warming up, as are hot foods like soup, warm bread, and fondue. Winter themed cookies or brownies are a fun dessert option in addition to the winter themed wedding cake.

Practical Considerations

While planning your wedding can be a great fun, don’t forget to take care of the essentials when having a winter wedding. Since most wedding dresses are strapless or sleeveless, brides should make sure to carry an elegant, fun shawl or wrap. It’s also a great way to add some color. Give bridesmaids similar shawls or wraps in white or muted tone. Check out these pretty pashmina shawls that will keep your bridesmaids warm and cozy. You can also personalize it with their first names. A pair of boots or some other shoes and an umbrella are other essential items to carry in case of wet weather or unexpected rain or snow.

Usually, everyone gets married in summers, but a winter wedding can be terribly glamorous and magical. Incorporate the above elements to make your winter wedding a wonderland.

I Love the idea of fur and fireplaces. White and snow flakes with touches of blue is all about the winter theme. A beautiful snowfall. Lights hanging from the ceiling would be a great touch. Hot drinks like cider and brownie cake. All the wonderfulness of a winter Wedding.
