Helpful Tips for a Winter Wedding

Helpful Tips for a Winter WeddingWinter weddings can be romantic and enchanting. While the weather may not always cooperate and some issues are inevitable, there are some considerations to be made in order to ensure your wedding is as memorable as possible. In addition to obtaining CT Wedding Insurance to provide extra safety and peace of mind, follow these simple venue, style, and photography tips.

Venue

Plan your ceremony and reception to be close to each other to allow for easier transport in bad weather. If this is not possible, allow for ample time to commute as inclement weather inevitably means traffic.

To please your guests, someone should be on site to collect jackets and hats upon arrival. To keep them warm while waiting for the ceremony to begin, offer warm blankets or hot beverages.  

As it will get dark earlier, ensure there is plenty of romantic lighting and candles. Check with your venue to see if they have additional winter decorations and if they are your taste prior to the set-up, as well.

Style

As it will be undoubtedly cold, dress up with winter accessories. One Fab Day recommends a faux fur stole, a veil, a cape or a cardigan to keep warm while accenting your dress. Further, if you have a long dress you can always wear thick tights underneath to stay warm. Consider wearing chic booties on your big day, as well, for added warmth and comfort.

Don’t forget your bridesmaids! Cover ups and shawls should be provided for them, too.

Photography

Consider taking portrait photos before the ceremony to take advantage of the natural light. Keep umbrellas and jackets on hand for in between takes and have a second pair of shoes for outdoor photos so you are not sinking your heels into grass or mud. Lastly, use hand warmers to prevent them from turning pale or blue during photo shoots.
