Winter weddings can be utterly magical, but there are a few inevitable issues that go hand in hand with weddings held during the darker months. If you’re having a winter wedding, don’t panic; all these problems are really small and totally avoidable with some preparations beforehand. Today we’ve gathered 20 simple tips and tricks to ensure your winter wedding goes off without a hitch. Pens and paper at the ready…
It will be cold so accessories will be important to keep warm. A faux fur stole, or a chic cardigan are all good options.
For grooms and groomsmen a velvet blazer is ideal. It’s a nice thick fabric which will keep the guys warm, plus is perfectly on-trend.
Chapped lips and dry skin are inevitable come winter. Keep your lips moisturised in the run up to the wedding. Use a good face moisturiser and have a chapstick in your clutch on the day.
Boots can be a stylish (and practical) bridal shoe option for winter weddings, especially if it rains.
Bad weather means bad traffic, so give extra time for travel to the chuppa – no matter how near or far you are going.
If possible, have your chuppa and reception in the one venue, or venues very near to each other. This will make transport easier in case of bad weather.
Make sure someone is in charge of taking coats at your reception and making sure they’re kept safe.
Consider making an effort to ensure your guests are kept warm and cheery once they arrive. A hot drink on arrival is a nice and simple idea.
It gets dark much earlier in the winter so adjust your photo schedule for more light. Taking portraits before your ceremony is often a good idea. If you’re not sure how to go about this, just chat to your photographer. They should have a good idea of what will work.
Have nice umbrellas on stand by for outdoor wedding photographs. These don’t have to be fancy – simple and black can often do the job.
