Spring has been such a tease this year. After a mild winter in the DMV, I was hopeful for quickly warming temperatures in spring. But, here I am… writing this blog post while wrapped in a thick blanket. The positive is that it has me reminiscing on the beautiful winter weddings I’ve photographed as a DMV wedding photographer! While cold temps can be a mood killer, it can also be a great opportunity to show your guests extra love. Keeping guests warm doesn’t have to be hard, or expensive! Follow these winter wedding tips to make your cold or snowy wedding full of romantic warmth.
If I were invited to a winter wedding, I’d be stressing about what to wear that will match the formality of your event without freezing my buns off! You can show your guests extra love with a few simple details that are there to keep them warm. These solutions don’t have to be expensive, and some are really clever and memorable.
Love on your guests by including some cozy wedding favors! Here are some ideas to get you started:
Sometimes the best warmth comes from the inside out! Consider adding stations to your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception that are designed to keep shivers at bay.
Despite best attempts, an outdoor winter wedding just still might be frigid. You can help ease this by adding a few warming elements to your venue. Just be sure the venue allows these things, or maybe they even provide it! Many of these items can be rented, so do some research to keep it within your budget.
The above tips are sure to make your guests feel loved and welcomed. But what about the bride? Wedding dresses don’t often come with matching parkas (nor would that look very pretty if they did). So here are a few winter wedding tips to make sure you stay warm and comfortable your entire wedding day!
Hopefully all these tips have sparked many more ideas for your winter wedding as you plan! If you’re looking for more tips like these, I recommend hiring a wedding planner! They can extend their knowledge and ideas about making your winter wedding that much more accommodating for you and your guests.
