The colder months doesn’t seem like the ideal season for saying ‘I do’ to the love of your life, but with the right preparations, your wedding can become a winter wonderland that is sure to get everyone in a festive mood.  

The snowy atmosphere is the perfect chance to find warmth on one of the most special days of your life, but there are plans you can do to celebrate in a way that reflects your love as a couple. While sun-kissed beaches and the bright days of summer are the usual hallmarks of weddings, you can still share a magical moment with your loved ones amidst the biting cold. 

If you’re wondering how you can add some much-needed spark to winter weddings, here are some tips that can make getting hitched in the frostiest of days just as charming.


Tip #1: Search for the Wedding Venue of Your Dreams 

Getting married in winter can feel uncomfortable if you’re striving for an outdoor wedding, but there are hidden gems indoors, too, if you find the ideal venue. Some places capture the regal structures of centuries-old castles and take you back to a time you can only imagine, while others embrace the vibrancy of modern living. Either way, the right venue should make the most of the season.


Tip #2: Set the Scene and Bring Life to a Blue Season

The venue is the most important aspect of transforming your winter wedding, but you can take the space to the next level by setting the scene according to the ceremony of your dreams. You can embrace the spirit of Christmas by using festive decorations and designing your invitations with holiday motifs.

Instead of exchanging vows with floral arches in the backdrop, you can capture the tranquil essence of winter by sharing your love with each other under the mistletoe while snowflakes fall gently. A roaring fireplace can bring families, friends, and everyone seeking each other’s warmth while asking for your guests to follow a wintry motif using thick, faux-fur clothing can make for a picturesque celebration. 


Tip #3: Warm Up with a Wintry Feast

The colder months are a festive season filled with Christmas dinners, so why not find comfort in the chill by serving classic, wintry treats? From warm apple cider, hot chocolate with spiced toppings, pan-roasted sea scallops, and more, the feast you serve can get everyone in a merry mood while you celebrate the start of a new chapter in your life with your partner. 


The Bottom Line: Saying “I Do” to a Winter Wedding 

A winter wedding sounds cold and uncomfortable, but it has the potential to become one of the most memorable and magical celebrations of love in the world.
