Winter isn’t the normal time of the year for a wedding, as most couples would rather have a warm weather wedding. Although, the cold weather, snow and and some other aspects can make for a beautiful and unique wedding that isn’t as hard on your pockets as a traditional one!
Benefits of a winter wedding:
You can save money. Cold weather weddings are usually cheaper and in less demand than their warm counterparts.
You can get exactly what you want. There’s a great chance that the venue you’re looking for will be open and available. Many popular locations are booked full during the summer and fall, but are usually open during the winter at a lower price than normal!
More of your guest might be able to attend. Many people can get time off of work for the holidays to travel, see family, etc. so they might be able to squeeze a day or two in for coming to your wedding during the winter.
- Winter weddings are different. Sick of cliche’s? Winter weddings stray away from the norm and can offer a truly memorable and unique experience for you and your love ones.
