Winter is almost here, and we’re excited to see all the latest trends in the wedding world. For those brides who have envisioned a fairy tale wedding in a perfect winter wonderland we have three important tips when planning your special day.
THINK ABOUT YOUR GUESTS
Winter weather is downright freezing in some parts of the country so remember to accommodate your guests. For larger venues, turn up the heat to a comfortable level. In smaller venues, as the party gets going it will heat up naturally. Keep it cool but don’t let your friends freeze either. If it rains, provide umbrellas for your guests so they can go to and from cars. Also it is a good idea to arrange for heat lamps if the party happens outdoors. A hot beverage option is a nice touch on a cold day, so offer your guests some hot chocolate or a warm cocktail.
PLAN FOR THE WORST CASE SCENARIO
Winter is unpredictable by nature so it is VERY important to plan for the worst case scenario. What will you do if it rains? Snows? Wind? Think about a back up plan for these types of situations. Alleviate a ton of stress by prepping back up plans early that way if something changes unexpectedly you are prepared.
KEEP HOLIDAYS IN MIND
Quite a few holidays happen in the winter that make planning a wedding slightly more difficult. Keep in mind that some of your guests may not be able to attend if the wedding falls to close to a holiday. Travel also gets more expensive during the holiday season. You might want to save your friends some money by setting a date before or after the holidays. Also, your decor may be limited if the venue is already decorated for Christmas, so be sure to check it out!
Keep these three tips in mind as you plan your special day and you are sure to have the perfect winter wedding. Happy Planning!
