A December Wedding

snowy-winter-wedding-088

A wedding is a defining moment in one’s life, and the accession should be memorable and full of beauty. Many couples make the mistake of imitating weddings they have seen in the soapies. What ends up happening is that they have an imitation that looks like a prom, rather than an occasion that should inspire for years to come.

Instead of having a plastic wedding, consider having a December wedding. A wedding set in the ageless beauty of nature’s white carpet. Winter weddings have an element of timelessness to them – as if the snowcapped mountains stand as a testament to love. Winter weddings are truly moments frozen in time – something impossible to forget.

Availability

Most couples prefer to have their weddings in warmer weather. This means that many in-demand venues have a waiting list of up to two years – causing you to worry for longer than you should.

However, during winter there are fewer couples trying to secure the in-demand venue you have your sights on. Allowing you the freedom to plan your wedding around a date you choose. Meaning – less venue hunting, reduced stress, and more time to consider the important things.

Intimacy

December is the perfect time to have a lavish indoor wedding with a select number of your closest family and friends. Securing a picturesque estate, mansion, or lodge with a natural backdrop will clinch the timeless beauty of winter for your big day.

But, there is an added benefit of having an indoor wedding… Your guests will feel cozy and warm indoors, sharing laughs and memories, leading to more intimacy and strengthened relationships amongst your nearest and dearest. A December wedding could transform a celebration into a rare classical moment.

Be Weather Conscious

The weather and the cold will be an issue, and is a concern when planning a December wedding. To turn your day into a winter wonderland, you must plan with the weather in mind. Here are two tips that could help calm some doubts…

Firstly; consider purchasing wedding insurance, so that you have the safety net of cancelling or postponing if a blizzard decides to gatecrash your wedding. Secondly, choose a venue that can host both the wedding ceremony and reception (or have two separate venues close to each other), this saves your guests from braving the cold and unnecessary travelling.

Lets Talk Photos

In winter, daylight is precious and night comes quickly. So you would want to land a photographer that is seasoned. A photographer that knows how to take shots in wintry conditions (for example: shooting while snowing, and minimising glare), and who knows how to manage time effectively – no one wants to freeze for any longer than they should. A good suggestion would be to capture your pictures before the ceremony.

The truth is that summer weddings are more popular, but winter weddings are unique.

When we talk about summer weddings, we usually picture a gorgeous blue sky, a sea of perfect white roses and guests in high-fashion suites and dresses, with champagne glasses in hand and remarking on what a beautiful wedding event they are lucky enough to be attending. What we don’t think about is the stifling heat, tiresome thunderstorms and swarms of mosquitoes. These are all things that no one has control over? To make sure your summer wedding is a memorable one you will need to make sure you do your best cover all the manageable factors.

The Ceremony

Sun is good, but the heat can be uncomfortable. You can beat the humidity and heat with umbrellas or paper panel program fans. These are two of the best ways to keep your guests cool and comfortable if you have chosen an outdoor venue. You can inject a nature theme by adding ladybugs and bumble bee themed decorations, to add summer wedding colors to your pallet. When considering summer wedding dresses, always look for stay-cool attires. The bride should always be comfortable and confident in her appearance. A summer wedding dress should be made of light weight fabric which is appropriate for a ceremony that is taking place on a hot summer day. To avoid horrible perspiration signs you will need to talk your wedding gown stylist into organdy, chiffon or silk. For the groom to look dapper, a linen suit and leather sandals can be perfect.

The Venue

The venue is considered as the heart of the wedding. The main component of a great venue is a great view. No matter how much you love the sun, you will need to provide your guests with some ways to escape the intense heat. Instead of letting the guests over heat in the sun you might use long shades umbrellas over the tables. Beach and garden themes are typical for summer weddings. For a refreshing change, rather than beach theme be more specific and go for a mountain theme. 

The Reception

Start the reception in summer weddings with a cocktail hour with comfy furniture in an outdoor venue. On the other hand, if you are planning for an indoor venue a plain marquee with colorful side panels would be a suitable alternative. You can decorate your marquee with draped fabric and chandeliers. Moreover, you can use a garden-glam theme with natural flowers center pieces at the tables with family and friends pictures at the displayed windows.
