Are you planning a winter wedding ceremony and reception? Winter weddings are very beautiful and magical in their own way, especially to couples who enjoy the holiday season and colder months of the year. However, a few problems tend to prevent some people from planning their weddings during the colder months. However, there is no need to worry; all of these common issues have relatively simple solutions. Here is how to solve most of the issues you may face when planning a winter wedding!
Everyone Will Be Cold
Fortunately, there are some easy ways to combat the cooler temperatures. Make sure you include a reminder about the weather on your wedding website and/or your invitations. This will ensure all of the quests can make the appropriate arrangements. It is also a good idea to pick heavier fabrics, sleeves, long dresses, thicker suit jackets, and vests. Make sure to provide some matching shawls as gifts for your bridal party.
The Weather Doesn’t Always Cooperate
The best way to deal with troublesome weather conditions is to predict potential travel difficulties when it comes to selecting your venue. We would advise seriously considering a single location for both your ceremony and reception, to minimize travel for you and your guests.
Flowers Are Expensive!
During the winter months, flowers can be problematic, since they are a big part of the wedding but they are quite expensive to get, especially if you have your heart set on a specific kind of flower that does not bloom during the winter.
In this case, fake floral arrangements can be quite effective. Another (more affordable) option is to choose flowers that are in season during the winter. Just make sure to consult your florist early and make appropriate plans.
