10 myths about winter weddings
Do you still think that winter is not the most suitable season for a wedding? In this article, we will debunk the most popular myths about winter weddings.
In winter, it is actually somewhat more difficult to organize an on-site ceremony in nature than in summer, but this does not mean at all that you will have to abandon this idea. Just warn guests beforehand to dress warmly, offer warm blankets and warming drinks at the entrance, do not delay the registration – and then it will become truly magical!
MYTH 2. IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE
As a rule, winter weddings, on the contrary, are cheaper. Firstly, it is in the off-season that you will have the opportunity to get a good discount from wedding contractors or when booking a platform. And secondly, you can save on the decor, using in the design of Christmas lights, spruce twigs, cones and other natural decor.
MYTH 3. THE SELECTION OF BARRIERS OF THE BRIDE IS VERY LIMITED
You are not obliged to buy a dress with long sleeves at all if you don’t want to. The image of the winter bride can be any: from royally luxurious, with a fluffy skirt and elegant fur coat, to a cozy and informal, with a warm long coat and knitted accessories.
And if the wedding takes place in a hotel or restaurant, you can choose even a short dress without sleeves or an outfit with an open back, because the room will have a comfortable temperature.
MYTH 4. HAVE TO REFUSE FROM FAVORITE FLOWERS
Of course, in summer, many flowers are cheaper and are much easier to find than in winter. But you do not need to give up the beautiful flowers if your wedding is scheduled for January. Gone are the days when white roses with cotton were the only option for a bouquet of winter brides: florists now offer luxurious ranunculi, elegant anemones, gentle gerberas, and even succulents!
MYTH 5. WEDDING PHOTOSESSION SHOULD BE PASSED IN THE ROOM
Why hide from the snow and frost in a photo studio, if you can walk through a snow-covered park or go on nature? Of course, the time of the photo session will have to be limited, but you can bask in each other’s arms or roll in the snowdrifts!
MYTH 6. NEED TO ATTACH A WINTER PALETTE
Do not limit yourself to classic gold and silver hues, do not be afraid to choose a bright and fresh palette! Remember that winter has a great variety of colors: white, red, green, blue, blue. And if you want, add bright unexpected colors, for example, pink or yellow, or play with shades: instead of red and green, use dark burgundy and emerald, and instead of gold – warm shades of orange. The main thing is that the color scheme is harmonious.
MYTH 7. GUESTS DO NOT LOVE WEDDING IN WINTER
Most likely, just the opposite: many of your guests have already visited classic summer weddings, and the winter celebration will be a new experience and an unforgettable adventure for them. Make sure that they do not freeze, and pay attention to the active winter entertainment in the program of the evening – believe me, no one will refuse to make a snowman or play snowballs!
MYTH 8. THE DECOR SHOULD PRESENT CHRISTMAS THEMES
Of course, this is quite a popular concept of winter celebrations, but do not mix the wedding with the New Year. Let the Christmas tree shine with bright lights for Christmas, and on your wedding day it is better to choose a decor that will emphasize the interests and characters of the bride and groom, as well as complement the wedding venue.
MYTH 9. DIFFICULTY WITH THE MENU
There is a myth that the choice of menu for the winter wedding is very limited. But each season has its own products that are becoming more affordable. For example, in winter, guests will be waited by a luxurious fruit table with oranges, tangerines, grenades and kiwi. In addition, winter is a great time for a variety of cakes and hot dishes that would seem too “heavy” in summer.
MYTH 10. ORGANIZE WINTER WEDDING COMPLICATED
Each season has its own characteristics that should be considered when organizing a holiday. In the summer it’s hot, it rains in the fall, and in the winter there’s a frost that limits guests ’stay outside, which means that most of the entertainment, like the dance floor, will have to be arranged indoors. Gather a team that has experience at winter celebrations, and then preparing for the wedding will be for you only joy!
