If you’re looking for a change from the usual bog standard summer wedding why not go for a winter one instead. Yes its cold and yes it may rain or snow but just think of the positive sides, it’s a lot cheaper and you can get some fantastic deals and savings especially if you book an all in one package though a venue.
You can easily incorporate a theme such as white and red to make it look really Christmassy. How about even having some fake snow and hiring reindeers, the photography would be fantastic and they would be some really great photos.
At the reception you could have an ice sculpture; these can be made for a relatively fair price. You can find additional touches on-line such as snow flake shaped confetti or pretty invitations and save the date cards. By sending out everything like invitations your family and friends will know you are having a winter themed wedding and dress accordingly!
Don’t forget even though its unlikely to be sunny you don’t have to completely rule out an outdoor wedding, there are some really beautiful ideas like getting married in an ice covered forest at twilight, add some beautiful fairy lights to make it look like a magical winter wonderland. Some couples elegantly wrap up their Christmas presents and give these out instead of favours. Using colors such as silver and purple will also give you wedding the theme of a winter wedding.
If however you like grand gestures and want everyone to remember you wedding why not hire an ice rink with bar and music instead of an indoor party that would be great for some people but maybe have a marquee as well of the older or younger guests that may not be quite so steady on their feet. With these endless choices you really can make your dreams come true and have that perfect winter themed wedding you have been waiting for.
