Don't be Shy about a Winter Wedding

Warm, sunny weather is the ideal condition for a wedding. Everyone knows that. It is a sign that the marriage will be bright and warm. Plus, the bride can wear an elegant, short-sleeved dress. That sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Well, it’s the dream of many brides. However, there are many benefits of having a wedding in the off-season, when the weather is cooler.

Couples that get married in the winter benefit from a variety of wedding venues because they don’t have to compete with the hordes of couples getting married in the spring and summer. That means that they will get off-season prices as well. One of the best parts of the winter wedding is the beautiful landscape. You may now want to be outside for very long if temperatures are plummeting. But, a few winter shots outdoors are always worthwhile.

The bride doesn’t have to sacrifice her wedding dress either. She can wear her dress of choice in the church and if she gets cold, a white shawl will complement the outfit. Outside, a long white coat will look beautiful and complement the groom. Winter weddings also give the bride a chance to be playful with her wardrobe by adding a fun hat or winter boots to the ensemble.

There are many beautiful locations for winter weddings. Snow covered mountains and frosty trees make a spectacular backdrop. The pure white canvas also makes colors pop out of the photos. For example, a colorful flower bouquet or necktie will look radiant in the white setting. It’s a good idea to add a little color to a winter wedding so that the photos are multi-dimensional. Colorful shoes (or winter boots), a boutonniere and colorful cascading flowers help bring the photos together.

If you are interested in a destination wedding, you can travel to an ice castle. Getting photos taken in an ice castle is a magical experience and makes the bride feel like a real princess.

Winter weddings offer just as much fun as any other time of the year. Snowball fights, snow angels and horse-drawn sleighs make the day unique and enjoyable.

Get married any time of year without sacrificing your plans. Winter weddings are just as magical as spring or summer weddings and give the couple plenty of opportunities for romance. Nothing is more romantic than curling up by a warm fire on your wedding night or watching the northern lights from your window.
