2020 has been a crazy year, but many of you have still found love and are ready to get married! Now comes the planning. If you have begun to look for a venue, you may have discovered difficulties booking the date you hoped for. This venue shortage is because of the very limited “wedding season.”
Did you know that 73% of all weddings take place between May and October? Which explains why so many people picture all “weddings” as warm weather events. Does 73% seem just a little too…ordinary for you? Why not become part of the 27% and plan your wedding between November and April?! There are a few downfalls to a winter wedding, but winter weddings can also be unique, gorgeous, and fun.
There are plenty of ways to plan a dreamy wedding in the cooler months, and below we’ve collected just a few of our favorites.
Sophisticated color palettes: Using black and white offers a sophisticated, formal feeling. This wedding used greens to add color.
Don’t want it quite so formal? Choose shades of blues and purples for that winter warmth feeling.
Candles and lights: Candles and lights provide a feeling of warmth, but their use in the summer months is not nearly as impressive as it is during the winter. The early darkness during the winter months allows for a completely different ambience than in the summer.
Our advice for 2021 brides: Don’t be afraid to consider a winter wedding. It might be the perfect option for a uniquely memorable big day. And you might just be lucky enough to get some outdoor pictures in the snow!
