CRW_0984It’s supposedly the start of summer, but looking outside, you wouldn’t know it!

So for this weeks Blog, I’ve put together some advice on winter weddings…

Top 5 things to consider for a winter wedding…

  1. Christmas music or not? You may be thinking that it’s your wedding and you don’t want any Christmassy music at all, but, in my experience, you’re going to need to compromise. Your guests, whilst being there to celebrate your wedding, will also be in the Christmas mood and will expect a few of the Christmas classic tunes. There are some great tunes that can be played during the wedding breakfast, carols during the cocktails and some lively tunes for dancing later!
  2. Photos – Your photographer is going to be limited on daylight time due to the shorter days. Discuss with him/her in advance and make a schedule of when you’re going to make yourself available for photos.
  3. The weather – some winter weddings have glorious sunshine and can be quite warm, some not so. Have a plan B. Don’t fret about the weather (you can’t change it!), but be ready in case it snows, rains, hails or is a beautiful sunny day.
  4. Flowers – Keep it seasonal to get the best flowers at the best prices. There are some great winter flowers and foliage you can use. Ask your florist for advice.
  5. Embrace it! You could use the winter to theme your wedding… Your favourite carols or ski resorts for table names, reds in your colour scheme, a special winter cocktail, crackers for favours, mince pies with your coffee…

One other thought… don’t forget it’s “party season” and lots of DJs will be booked up in advance for Christmas events! Don’t leave it too late…

For lots more ideas to make your winter wedding you, let’s arrange an appointment to meet up and discuss your wedding…
