The weather outside may be frightful, but a winter wedding just may be delightful. It’s not only romantic, but the advantages of having a wedding during the winter far outweigh the disadvantages. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of having a winter wedding.
- Winter is considered the “off season” for weddings, which means you can save half the cost of a summer wedding.
- Most vendors are willing to offer lower prices because business tends to be a little slower during the winter.
- There are more choices and less competition for a specific date when booking a venue or securing professional services.
- This is the time when retailers offer their best deals, so you’ll definitely save on wedding attire, jewelry, decorations, and more.
- Weather is a major factor for any wedding, but especially during the winter. Guests may not be happy if forced to spend too much time outdoors. That wedding hair probably won’t last if the ceremony is too long.
- Travel accommodations are more expensive around the holidays. You’ll want to be sensitive to holiday conflicts when selecting the wedding date.
A winter wedding is undeniably unique and with proper planning, you could pull off the most talked-about event of the year. Here are a few ideas to consider, if you dare to be different:
- Arden Hills Country Club, Belazio Galeria, Capitol Plaza Hall, and Wilson Vineyards are popular winter wedding venues in Sacramento.
- A menu offering heartier meals and warm beverages may be more appetizing and appreciated by your guests.
- A candlelight glow will add warmth and elegance to your wedding reception.
- Holiday-themed favors continue to be a favorite.
- Etiquette says that winter weddings are a formal, black-tie event.
- Embrace the season by heading up to the snow in Lake Tahoe for a cozy honeymoon.
