It used to always be the case that when you were planning a wedding, it would be in the warmer summer months. The main reason for this was down to the better weather and the heaps of sunshine and this is why these months are still considered peak season.
But this doesn’t mean that winter weddings are not popular. In fact, people getting wed in November and December is actually on the rise. But why is this? What is so great about winter weddings? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why we love the idea of winter weddings.
There are going to be plenty of suppliers to pick from
When you plan a summer wedding you are going to have to make sure that you book in your suppliers as early as you can. Especially if you want to secure a particular supplier. However, with a winter wedding you don’t have to worry about this as much. Many suppliers are much less busy during the winter months, which means that you can book in that photographer or band that you are really keen to have.
You will save some money too
Not only are there going to be plenty of amazing suppliers out there that you can pick from, but there is also a good chance that you are going to find yourself a bit of a bargain too. There are lots of savings out there, one of the most common of them is with the venue, which will be looking to utilise their space and may reduce the costs that you can expect to pay out.
Winter wedding favours are amazing
We love winter wedding favours. Not only are they great fun but there are so many amazing ideas out there too. Gloves, thick socks, hot chocolate, all of these things are not only a lovely treat for your guests, but they are also easy to do and have a real unique feel to them too.
There are so many amazing colour schemes you can go for
The colour scheme that you go for is an important consideration for your big day and the great thing about winter weddings is that there are a variety of amazing colour schemes that are going to work really well. Gold, silver, white, even darker colours such as red or purple. All of these work really well with a winter wedding, when they might not work so well with those who are getting married in the summer months.
As you can see, there are so many reasons why we love winter weddings, not only can you indulge your guests with comfort food that they are going to love, but you can also wrap yourself up warm over the top of your wedding dress with a fluffy jacket or capelet.
Rather than discounting a winter wedding, think about all the reasons why a winter wedding might just be the perfect choice for you.
