Living in Indiana we are all about the seasons and have learned to appreciate the beauty that comes with each one. Winter weddings have a romanticism to them that you just don’t get in the summer. There’s a coziness to a reception when it’s freezing outside but inside you are surrounded by the warmth of your family and friends. Here are some of our favorite things about winter weddings.
We LOVE Snow!
Snow adds an element of wonder and childlike fun to any situation. Freshly fallen snow is what wedding photographers dream about! We love how the snow outside leads the bride and grooms way into their very own winter wonderland.
Soft Color Pallets
Summer weddings require bright bold colors to compete with the outside world, while winter weddings can play on the soft earthy tones and still stand out!
While summer brides worry about how to sweat-proof their make-up and prevent overheating in their ball gowns, winter brides get to wrap themselves in a cozy blanket or wear a cute sweater over their dress or even skip the heels in favor of some comfy boots!
There’s nothing better than a warm drink on a chilly day, especially if it’s your special day! You and your guests can enjoy some more unique drinks. Create a make-your-own-hot-chocolate bar filled with holiday mix-ins like candy canes, cinnamon sticks, marshmallows – and top it all off with some flavored alcohol like RumChata or Pinnacle Salted Caramel.
More Honeymoon Options!
Ok, so that's more a favorite thing for you, but unfortunately, peak wedding season (May through September) coincides with peak hurricane season, especially in the Caribbean, but winter time is the perfect time to make a tropical escape! Leave all the snow and ice behind for perfect beach weather.
Whether you choose to enjoy an outdoor ceremony in July or embrace the winter for your wedding, the only thing that really matters is that you bring your favorite people together to celebrate the fact that you found the love of your life. Have fun and stay warm!
