Planning A Winter Wedding
When you’re planning a winter wedding, the whole process can seem quite daunting. After all, there’s so many things to think about, so many things to do, etc.
The thing is, you don’t have to feel like this. Planning a winter wedding should be fun, it shouldn’t be painful. You should be able to enjoy the planning stages of your wedding more than planning anything else you ever do, so why get stressed about it? After all, the more stressed you are about the planning, the less likely you’re actually going to do it, you’ll just put if off.
One of the things people often struggle with is winter wonderland wedding ideas. They just can’t find new and creative ways to make their winter themed wedding stand out, and that worries them. After all, no one wants to feel generic or boring, right?
Let’s have a look at a few tips for planning a winter wedding; they could make the whole process much easier for you:
The weather is definitely an issue, but it’s not something to panic about. If you’ve chosen a good venue, with spacious gardens, then you should be able to set up a shelter outside to ensure that you keep any potential rain or snow out. Obviously you’re going to want to prepare for the worst type of weather, just in case it happens, instead of hoping for the best. Have umbrellas on stand by at all times, and make sure you choose dresses that will stand up to the conditions.
2. Holiday Season
If you’re planning your wedding around a holiday season, you need to send out those invitations as quickly as possible. Although a holiday themed wedding can be absolutely fabulous, it’s not going to be much good if your friends and family can’t attend because they’ve already made plans. Also consider the expense for your guests to travel to your wedding during the holidays
3. The Theme
Pick a theme early and stick to it. Try to make the theme as flexible as possible, but still rigid enough to give you a focal point. For example, if you choose a winter wonderland theme, you instantly know that your main colors are going to be whites, the occasional red, and some green. Once you know your primary colors, it becomes much easier to plan for the rest of the wedding.
4. Go Seasonal
Go seasonal with your decorations (and also possibly your theme). The whole point of having a winter wedding is that you can use the season to make it particularly special, so don’t shy away from that. Use snowflakes, icicles, candy canes, snowmen, etc. as part of your decorations, they will really add uniqueness to your wedding.
Planning a winter wedding isn’t easy, and many people find it to be an absolute nightmare. Having said that, you just need to be patient and things will start to click into place. Just using a few of those tips above will help you with the planning of your winter wedding, and it could be a truly spectacular occasion if you get it right.
