Quick Tips

Once you have a venue nailed down, dont forget to keep a few other things in mind as well.

Plan ahead

Due to the hustle and bustle of the winter season, it is very good to plan ahead so that people can make sure your wedding is on their calendar. It often turns out that couples are lucky by setting the wedding date just before the official holiday, which people already have for free (e.g., a few days after Christmas, but before the New Year or Thanksgiving weekend).

Think about your decor

Given the completely different beauty that winter offers, it's worth considering a traditional wedding decor again. Take the opportunity to use candles, rich romantic colors and lighting effects, bold colors, seasonal flowers such as poinsettias and thicker, more textured fabrics such as velvet. We even saw the brides use Christmas lights as a winter wedding decoration and it looked absolutely beautiful.

Enjoy the winter food:

One of our favorite pastimes during winter weddings is the abundance of wonderful dishes that can be part of the party offer. Hot drinks such as hot chocolate or fresh cider. Hearty and unique food such as fondue, soups and fresh warm bread. Many guests even break away from the traditional wedding cake and offer for dessert cookies and other delicacies.

Dress Properly

This may be the most important tip for a nice and comfortable winter wedding. Make sure bride and bridesmaids have ample and classy coverings, such as wraps, scarves and jackets. If possible, it is also recommended to avoid strapless dresses or spaghetti straps. Also remember to inform your guests about the expected weather. Winter weddings are unique and simply beautiful. Do not miss this wonderful season for a wedding thanks to these simple tips.
