When you think of your perfect wedding, do you imagine the biting cold and sparkling snow alongside your celebratory sparkling champagne? A winter wonderland may not be your idea of an dreamy wedding, but the winter season provides the perfect opportunity for a warm, cozy, intimate, dreamy, unique and unforgettable wedding.
Imagine your loved ones, sitting close and cozy around the fireplace, sipping on hot chocolate and hot apple cider that they made at the Warm-Up Drink Station. They are chatting, revelling in memories of beautiful moments together that brought you all here together.
The festivities could begin with an enchanting bachelorette party in the mountains, satisfying your need for speed (and adorable dogs) on a dogsledding adventure, or trekking through the fluffy stuff on snow shoes.
It’s a chilly day for a wedding, but aside from the gorgeous cover-up you’ve perfectly paired with your wedding dress, you and your guests can stay warm while wrapped up in the blankets you’ve so considerately provided for them to have and hold in case they get cold.
Did we mention how dreamy you would look in that perfect winter cover-up? And why not some matching ones for your favourite girls?
Is jumping and shivering not keeping your guests warm enough? Turn that beautiful pond around for the winter and offer ice skating as a fun wedding activity for your guests. A skating rink doubles as a unique backdrop for photos. After the chill photo shoot, warm up at the Warm-Up Drink Station you’ve prepared right on the ice.
The winter wedding activities don’t have to end there. Did you know some venues can offer bikes with wider tires, suitable for biking around on a frozen lake? Rent a “fat bike” to venture a frozen lake. Choose your method of wedding wintertainment.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have Rudolph at your wedding! Live reindeer rentals are a real thing. Just be sure your guests are informed of how to interact with them safely.
The variation in winter colour themes is endless – you can plan for the typical wintery silver and pale blue, to a dark raspberry or eggplant colour motif, or pale pinks and champagne hues. The possibilities for winter wedding themes is not as limited as you might think.
There is something magical about celebrating with your loved ones in the sparkling, wintery outdoors, where the best method for keeping warm is close and cozy cuddles. With snow lightly falling from the sky, you, hubby-to-be, and everybody you love who loves you will never forget your magical winter wedding, as unique as each snowflake that lands.
