We are loving winter weddings so much right now! We have created a list of seven reasons why a winter wedding is the coolest way to go right now – no pun intended! We hope we can convince a few of our followers to jump on this trend because we would love to see more weddings in these colder months!
You Get Your First Choice of Vendors.
Since winter is typically a slow time for Colorado venues and vendors, you have a great chance of scoring your dream venue or band this time of year. You’ll also reduce the time you spend researching and meeting with potential vendors. You might even get a discount on your venue as many locations give off-season discounts.
Romance is Guaranteed.
Candlelight, cold nights and cozy seating make for an intimate experience that your guests will never forget. Take it one step further by selecting a venue with a fairytale feel, such as Highlands Ranch Mansion, Manor House or Spruce Mountain Ranch.
Decor Options Galore.
There are no rules when it comes to decorating for your winter wedding. Whether you use the season as inspiration or pick a specific theme, your wedding will be sure to stand out. We are loving wine-colored decor paired with lush greenery and natural woods, along with winter whites with snowflake accents and twinkle lights.
Endless Style Options.
Stay warm and look amazing by accessorizing your dress with a faux-fur shrug, crimson velvet cape, colorful mittens or even snow boots. These simple additions will elevate your look and make for fantastic photos. Grooms can take advantage of the season by wearing a velvet jacket in a dark color.
Comfort Food & Drinks.
Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? A winter wedding is a perfect opportunity for a fancy hot chocolate bar, mulled wine or a coffee station. Other comfort food ideas we’ve seen at weddings include a mashed potato bar, soup samplers and a s’mores station. Yummy!
Warm winter light and couples’ desire to snuggle close together to stay warm make for incredible photos. A light dusting of snow and accessories with a pop of color take the photos to the next level. Just be sure to plan for photos before the sun goes down.
Unique Guest Gifts.
Custom blankets, s’mores kits, coffee mugs and gloves all make for fun and memorable guest gifts. And these functional gifts won’t be tossed in the trash within a few days – they will serve as a reminder of a wonderful event for years to come.
