Top Tips For A Wonderland Winter Wedding

Winter is a great time to celebrate your love. After all, the off-peak season means that you can save big on many costs. But if you’re not careful, the cold weather could catch you out. Here are some tips for making the most of your winter wedding.

Choose weather-friendly foods

No one wants to eat fish and salad when it’s freezing outside. Instead, work with your caterer to design a warming menu that will keep your guests feeling cosy. Think soups, curries, roasts and cooked desserts. You might even consider serving hot chocolate or mulled wine and hot cider.

Don’t skimp on heating

When it comes to your heating, being a little warm is better than being cold. So make sure you plan for plenty of heating.

If you have any part of your ceremony outdoors, make sure you have outdoor heaters scattered around. For the venue, make sure you check that the room is able to be well-heated.

Utilise layers

A winter wedding doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous. You just need to make the most of layers to keep you comfortable and cosy. Scarves, wraps, silk gloves and elegant cardigans can all be used to keep you warmer without looking silly. But make sure the colours work together first!

Have smart shoes handy

Wedding shoes are beautiful, but they can often be difficult when it comes to cold, wet weather. If you do want to wear heels, make sure you pick a closed-toe option to keep your toes from freezing.

You can also consider having a pair of closed flats to switch to after the ceremony and photos. Some people who have a winter wedding even get matching gumboots for their wedding party. This can make a very memorable photo to look back on!

Consider an earlier time

Many weddings go well into the night. But in winter, you may want to consider shifting the time back to avoid the cold.

A ceremony after lunch could be followed by an afternoon tea reception. Or you could have a morning ceremony, followed by a lunchtime reception. These options also mean you’ll be able to snuggle up earlier with your other half.

Pick a weather-friendly transport option

Imagine arriving at the venue, to find it’s pouring with rain! Did anyone remember to pack an umbrella? This is why it’s important to go with a transport option that has you covered, no matter what the time of year or type of weather.
