There’s no denying it: winter weddings are absolutely stunning in terms of backgrounds and settings. After all, the snow, the rain and the overall dark, misty atmosphere that comes with winter are undeniably romantic, which maybe accounts for the fact that weddings usually escalate during winter time. Whether you choose a typical winter wonderland theme or a wilder one amidst the snow and the cold, you can be sure that you’re in for a treat.
The one important thing, however, is to select the perfect location that will do justice to your winter wedding. It would be entirely pointless to throw a fantastic winter-themed wedding in a shoddy-looking venue. On a more positive note, however, there certainly isn’t a lack of winter wedding locations that’s bound to suit both your budget and your personal needs. If you want a Destination ceremony, for example, don’t hesitate to check out places such as Lapland.
The winter destination by excellence, Lapland is home to one of the most stunning wedding venues in the world. Whether you want to rent an expensive chalet or a more affordable hall, you can be sure that Lapland will provide you with exactly what you’re looking for. Several companies even offer special wedding packages that cover everything from the seating arrangements to the catering and even the band. However, it is extremely important to book these places in advance because they’re always in high demand. Couples who can’t afford to spend too much might even rent a venue and book a dinner package in a nearby restaurant for the after-party.
If you can afford it, some high-end winter weddings venue- such as Lapland, Greenland or even Iceland- are happy to offer a few perks such as an ice sculpture buffet table to take your overall decor up to the next level. Speaking of Greenland, few people are aware of it, but, it’s entirely possible to get married at the very edge of a glacier. Perfect for adventurous couples, glacier weddings are entirely safe and usually accompanied by highly experienced tour guides.
Some companies even offer special packages that will allow couples to get married under the glowing Northern lights. Yes, you do have to fly yourselves and the entire bridal party up North for that, but honestly, it’s completely worth it. If you’re on a restricted budget, however, you may simply set up a small gazebo in a snow, decorate it with some dried flowers and fairy-lights and you’ve got yourself the coziest, homeliest winter wedding venue ever!
