The winter season may only be known for Christmas, colds, and terrible snow storms, but I think there's a lot more to it than meets the eye. Weddings, for instance, are mostly held during the spring and summer months, and for good reason, but I think winter has its own treasures to give a happy couple. 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 to get hitched in the winter.
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 won't have to worry about a makeup meltdown, hair gone flat, or sweat dripping down your back.
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 sounds so dreamy, doesn't it?
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.
