Winter Wedding – December/January/February
Winter months may not be the most popular time to have a wedding ceremony, but they can also be a hidden gem. With stunning snowy winter landscapes, candles, and gleaming fireplaces, not to mention less wedding competition and increased availability of wedding venues, there is no reason one shouldn’t consider these months for a wedding party. Plus, winter allows generous amounts of comfort food to leave your wedding guests satisfied.
- December – Since it is the month of families getting together and reunions, there is a great chance that your loved ones working overseas or living in the countryside could be present at your wedding. This is a perfect time for them to know your spouse-to-be more and to have them celebrate the special day with you.
- January – January represents new beginnings and tying the knot with someone you are willing to spend the rest of your life with is probably one of the best ways to celebrate it. For many, it is a happy day and a celebration of a new life with their partner surrounded by their friends and family members.
- February – A romantic month to plan for a wedding is in February because it is the month of love. It is when we celebrate Valentine’s Day, so nothing is more romantic than walking down the aisle with the person you love the most. Having a celebration aligned with Valentine’s Day can be very beneficial. For one, the wedding venue you choose will most likely be already decorated for this special day, which can only add a celebratory feel to your wedding.
However, there are still some disadvantages to a winter wedding ceremony besides the cold. While holidays are considered the best times of the year for a wedding, they can create conflicts as traveling can be difficult and expensive, especially in December. It can also be a busy time for suppliers, so booking their services can be a challenge.
If you are planning to have a large wedding in January, you have to consider the holidays you’re competing with. Since Christmastime has just passed, most of your guests could still be traveling back home or are still in their long Christmas break. Furthermore, the snow can be a hassle, not only for your venue but also for your guests who are traveling. It can also be difficult for vendors to try to get to places.
