Five Winter Wedding Planning Tips

we have a look at some tips for your winter wedding.

The pandemic caused many weddings to be cancelled and postponed over the past 18 months, leaving people either struggling to find available dates during the spring and summer of 2022 or deciding to opt for a winter wedding.

At least for the near future, weddings will continue to be impacted by COVID-19, and we will all have to learn to live with this and work around it. But we have a look at some tips for your winter wedding.


Staying warm 

Holding your wedding in the middle of winter means it is important to ensure everyone is warm. You will want to minimise any time spent outdoors and consider long sleeve dresses, capes, and furry wraps for the bridesmaids, while velvet suits will keep the groomsmen warm.

You can help keep guests warm with welcoming drinks such as Winter Pimms or mulled wine, as well as hot canapés. A hot chocolate station is bound to be popular too!


Add some sparkle 

Winter is the ideal time to add some festive sparkle to events. With nights drawing in, use candles and fairy lights to great effect. You can easily add sparkle to outfits too by putting bridesmaids in sequinned dresses or having glittery accessories.


Think about your timings 

Taking the Great British weather into account is a wise idea at any time of year, as you could have a rain-drenched wedding in August or bright, blue skies and sun in December.

However, winter weddings will have a higher risk of things like rain, wind, and snow, so factor in extra travelling time for guests, especially if you’re not getting married and having the reception in the same venue.

Winter can provide a spectacular backdrop for your wedding, and you are more likely to find the venue of your dreams in the traditional wedding off-season in January. Whatever you decide, don’t forget your wedding photo booth hire in the UK!
