The winter wedding is a romantic and chilly one. The season is not a time when most couples choose to get married because of the fierce weather condition and the challenges attached to it.
However, the winter wedding can be a fun and chilly day to have a memorable experience, save more on your wedding and have a nice time with the guests.
The following are the do’s and don’ts of planning a winter wedding.
- Do Consider The Wedding When Shopping For The Dresses
Remember that you’re getting married in the winter period. You and your wedding party needs to dress appropriately.
If rain is likely to fall, wear outfits that will hold up to the weather. Your wedding party should also have jackets made for their outfits if you plan on taking picture in the snow. You wouldn’t want them all shivering on your wedding day.
- Don’t Overheat The Wedding Guests
Despite the fact that your wedding reception and ceremony should be warm and cheery, the guests shouldn’t be overheated.
After a few songs and moments on the dance floor, the guests can get really hot. Keep a suitable temperature for the guests with long sleeved dresses and create a place for the guests to hang their coats when they get hot. Your wedding coordinator should reduce the heat when your guests start to sweat.
- Do Expect Delay
Having a winter wedding can make things unpredictable. The wedding can be delayed due to late arrival of the guests and suppliers.
Be prepared for a change in the schedule and for some disasters to happen on your big day.
This is why you should always be prepared and to have a backup plan for unforeseen events.
Traffic can be caused by bad weather. Give extra travel time for the guests who might be unable to make it on time.
Your family and friends have made a lot of effort, sacrificing their time and money, risking the bad weather just to share your special day with you.
They deserve to be appreciated. This can be done by presenting special winter favors such as cookies or sparklers. You can also provide a hot chocolate bar for the guests.
