Are you thinking about having a winter wedding?
Winter weddings are definitely magical and absolutely gorgeous. However, they do come with a few cons and a few pros. Make sure to inform yourself about all of them before making a decision.
Here is what you need to think about before signing up to be a winter bride!
PROS OF WINDER WEDDINGS
- You will have an easier time finding vendors.
Couples getting married in June should choose their vendors a year or so in advance. Otherwise, they are going to be stuck with the most expensive or least appealing options. However, if you go for a winter wedding, there should be lots of vendors just waiting to be hired.
- Pretty much everything should be cheaper.
If you and your groom are the only ones fighting for the vendor’s business, you might be able to get them to lower their price. The option of booking a client for less money is better than spending the weekend not working.
- Cozy décor looks beautiful.
Many wedding venues have fireplaces, but you cannot spark it up if you are getting married in July. In addition, you probably would not use candles during the summer wedding, but they are totally and in place during the colder months.
CONS OF WINTER WEDDING
- If the weather goes haywire, you may have to call off your wedding.
The odds of a massive blizzard not happening are in your favor, but there is always a chance of snow or ice preventing your guests or your vendors from making it to your vendors. It is imperative to get wedding insurance if you are getting married in the winter.
- You might not be able to get the flowers you want.
A florist can definitely get their hands on every type of flower all year-round, but that service is not going to be cheap. Keep in mind that you are going to have to pay to have your flowers shipped in from warmer parts.
- All your pictures will be inside shots.
This might not be such a huge deal, but it will stink if your venue has a gorgeous garden that will be useless on your wedding day.
