However, apart from these things, there are a few others that you can embrace to have a perfect and romantic winter wedding. We have shortlisted the five most important factors that you need to keep in mind while planning your winter wedding. Read to know more.
Whether it’s you, your partner, or all your guests, ensure that everyone is dressed keeping in mind the weather conditions. You could remind them about it via the invite, hinting at the climate and its Dos and Donts. It is advisable to invest in a cozy pair of tights that you can wear underneath your dress, in case your legs aren’t exposed by it. Another great idea would be to opt for a wedding dress with long sleeves to keep away from the chill. Let’s remind you that at times, silhouette makes all the difference, and sleeves do not always matter. You can look as sexy as you want to look despite being fully clothed. Pick a silhouette that flaunts your body while keeping you warm from the inside.
Say hello to winter wedding accessories
You have heaps of winter accessories and you don’t repeat them often. But did you know, those winter accessories can help you get through that chill on your wedding evening? Yeah, that chic cape or that glam faux fur throw that you saw at Nordstrom will prove to be your perfect companion. You could also be a trendsetter wearing denim or leather jackets over your wedding dress. A fuzzy warm scarf would also do the trick, you could also opt for a glitzy one and take the glam quotient a notch up. For a winter wedding, do not hesitate to add dark and bold colors. They add an elegant touch to your wedding and the effects of it on your wedding photography are spectacular.
Take care of your guests
Given the chill, do not forget to ensure that your wedding venue is a comfortable cozy place for your guests to enjoy every moment of your wedding. Start with a coat check right as they enter. Inform them well about the coat check (maybe through the wedding invite) so that they do not hesitate to wear coats and land up sneezing at your wedding. Pick a nice hot drink for your guests on arrival, like a hot toddy bar, cocoa, soup, or hot chocolate. For outdoor weddings, you could add an ample stock of pashminas and blankets for your guests so they can beat the chill with ease. You could also keep heaters or fire features at convenient gaps. Candles are another great way to add mild heat, romance, and light to an outdoor wedding.
Pay attention to the timing
We all know that with winters come early dusks. Getting your wedding photography in natural light might be a challenge. Therefore, remember to get your wedding portraits done before the dusk strikes. Another challenge would be getting an outdoor shoot, however, with well-thought-of plans, that can be achieved perfectly. Dress keeping in mind the climate conditions, wear proper shoes in case you are planning to shoot in the snow and do it before the night falls. You don’t want to pose while freezing yourself away. The wedding videography should also be timed carefully.
Prepare for all things winter!
Winter brings with it chill, extreme chill at times, snow, blizzards, and what not! As romantic as it feels, winter can be really harsh at times. Keeping all that in mind, you should do all the needful preparations like the arrangement of parking in close proximity of the wedding venue only, well-heated smoking zones for those who want to go out for a smoke and other such things. Have back up plans regarding your photoshoot or videography in cases of blizzards. And do not forget about plan Bs for suppliers or contractors for specific purposes.
These are pretty much all the important stuff that you really need to care about while planning for your winter wedding. If you are cautious about these things then you are all set for a memorable wedding, which everyone would be able to enjoy and cherish. For more inspiration on weddings check out the rest of our blog.
