Top Tips For Planning A Winter Wedding
Frosty mornings, dashings of snow, and crackling log fires make winter one of the most enjoyable seasons of the year. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that many couples wish to tie the knot during this time!
A Winter Wedding can be a truly wonderful experience, full of magic, light and warmth. However, as with any ceremony, you have to plan ahead! Here are some top tips for planning your winter wedding.
Set a budget early.
One of the most important steps of wedding planning is putting together a clear budget. Think about everything you need to pay for, from venue hire to the dress and shoes - and consider how much you can reasonably spend/save between now and the wedding. Once you have a budget in place, do whatever it takes to stick to it.
Your wedding is supposed to be one of the best days of your life. However, as you work up to the big day, it is likely that your stress levels will continue to rise. Whether you are worried about going over budget, or your outfit not fitting right - know that all problems will resolve themselves eventually. Don’t let your anxieties take away from what an exciting time this is. Focus on getting enough rest and taking care of your mind and body. This will allow you to tackle any problems with ease!
Remember the weather.
When it comes to choosing your wedding dress, not only do you need to ensure that it is the dress of your dreams, you also need to make sure that it is weather appropriate. Remember, the winter season is particularly cold - and you don’t want to be shivering as you walk down the aisle. Thankfully, there are plenty of dress options for a winter wedding. For example, you can choose a thicker fabric, or experiment with layers to keep you warm no matter where you may be.
Chose a theme.
Putting a wedding together is no easy feat, especially if you have thousands of ideas in your head and aren’t’ sure which route you want to go down. However, choosing a clear theme can help whittle down these ideas - turning a dream into reality. When it comes to deciding a wedding theme, you may wish to ask yourself the following questions:
What kind of theme matches my venue?
What kind of theme matches my dress?
What kind of theme will reflect my personality?
What are our favourite colours?
How can the theme tell our story?
The last question is perhaps the most important, and there are various ways in which you can incorporate your personal story into your theme. For example, if your first date as held at a local park, why not decorate the venue with flowers and greenery? If you enjoyed an incredibly romantic holiday together, why not chose a menu with cuisine from that country? Some of the personal touches may not be immediately obvious to your guests, but will still bring a smile to your face!
