5 Reasons Why Winter Weddings Are Wonderful!

1. Have fun with the frills
While everyone else is getting married in Spring or Summer, Winter gives you the opportunity to do things differently making sure your wedding day will stand out from all the others! Think what fun you can have with the wedding favours – pretty little hand warmers, sparklers, chocolate coins & candy canes, personalised scented candles….

2. It’s festive!
Getting married in Winter means you get to steal all the very best elements of Christmas splendour for your special day. Think twinkling fairy lights and candles for that romantic glow, decorative green boughs with bright red berries and pine cones and even some strategically placed mistletoe to set the scene.

3. Just add glamour
Winter is the perfect time to add some sparkle with sequins or glitter or add a touch of warmth with hints of gold. Up the glamour stakes even further with a fabulous fake fur wrap or coat. And then there’s the beautiful rich, jewel colours and warm textures that lend themselves to winter – burgundy, deep greens, sapphire blues in velvet and silk – exactly what’s needed for those bridesmaid outfits!

4. Satisfying treats
When it’s cold outside you need to give the taste buds a treat. Mulled wine or hot chocolate is an excellent option to welcome your guests. And when it comes to the food, flavourful warming soup served with fresh bread, delicious roast meats, and decadent desserts spring to mind. Hearty, comforting and scrumptious!

5. Picture this
Just imagine if there’s snow on the ground, how amazing your wedding photos will be – no-one’s to know that you’re wearing thick tights and wellington boots underneath! And if you want to stay indoors you can cuddle up together next to a roaring log fire or underneath the mistletoes bathed in beautiful candlelight.
