When you think of wedding season, most think of spring or summer months, but have you ever considered a winter wedding? There is so much to be said about the joys that the winter holiday season brings. Comfort, warmth, light, celebration, happiness, togetherness, and love are a few things that come to mind. It certainly is the most wonderful time of the year and here are just a few reasons why we just love winter weddings!
1. Stunning Photos
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow (did you sing that with me?)! White blanketed pine trees, snow-capped mountain tops, and the happy bride and groom. There is no doubt you’ll have gorgeous photos from a winter wedding. So…brave the cold, the photos will be worth it!

2. Winter Fashion Options are Endless
This time of year, anything goes! You can choose the classically elegant long sleeve or even a sleeveless gown and add some fur (faux, of course), upper arm satin gloves, wrap, scarf, or long coat. The options to accessorize are endless.

3. Winter Décor, and the Coziness it Brings
A winter wedding allows you to be more creative with your color palette as the majority of color schemes work for this time of year. Whether you use bold reds and rich purples or pale pastels, silver and creams, they all compliment the neutral months of winter time. You can also experiment with a themed décor. Think more natural components like frosted pinecones, pine leaves, snowflakes, or holiday lights to enhance your winter wedding wonderland.
4. Special Wedding Touches
It’s often the little touches which make a wedding feel personal and special. There are hundreds of ways you can add the sweetest of details to your winter wedding. From cozy blanket boxes, to sparklers, snow confetti, hot cocoa bars and s’more stations.
5. The Perfect Touch of Romance & Fun
Winter weddings are absolutely enchanting. Just like the first snowfall of the season, winter weddings are magical and romantic. Think fireplaces, mood lighting, lots of candles. Also, the days are shorter in the winter months, but the nights of parties and dances are much longer.
