Dos And Don’ts For A Winter Wedding

October 17th, 2017

Winter is going to be here soon and so is the season of marvelous winter weddings. And, who wouldn’t want to create a magical winter wonderland for their big day? Gone are the days when weddings were restricted to summers and springs. Brides and grooms these days are warming up to the idea of planning a winter wedding. 

However, having a wedding in the snowy season of winter comes with its own perks and challenges. This season serves as the best time to book reception halls, wedding planners, designers and vendors as it won’t be the peak season for weddings. The challenge is to keep yourself and your guests warm in freezing cold temperatures. Having said that we firmly believe that you can pull off this feat by sticking to a few dos and don’ts: 

Do: Plan Your Outfit Keeping The Winters In Mind

We understand, that in your excitement to be the Disney princess for the day, you could get carried away while buying your wedding dress. But, you need to prioritize your comfort before anything else. You don’t want to look blue and dull in your pictures because of the freezing temperatures. If you are planning to take pictures in the snow, then make sure you add a faux fur jacket to your wedding outfit. 

Do: Keep Your Guests Warm

Your wedding is the biggest day of your life and this fact might overshadow the discomfort caused by the chilly winters. But, your guests will be putting in some effort to combat the freezing temperatures to reach your wedding venue. So, it is important to do everything possible to make them feel warm. Decide on a suitable venue for the reception. See to it that you strategically place the heaters in your reception hall. Provide your guests with amazing winter food. You can plan for hot chocolate servings with gingerbread and a good dose of mulled wine to beat the chill. A s’mores station would also be perfect for setting like this. And, don’t forget an exotic range of roast meat. You can have a total festive menu to make your guests feel warm. Our experienced team at Mirage would be happy to assist you in creating the perfect menu and atmosphere for your special day.

Don’t: Overdoing It

While you do want to save your guests from the freezing cold, you don’t want them to overheat. Remember halfway through the reception that everyone will be on the dance floor. And, all your guests will dress warmly for the event. Hence, make sure there is a place for them to hang their coats and jackets so that they can let their hair down and enjoy the evening. 

Don’t: Worrying Too Much 

Yes, we believe everyone around you is saying the same thing seeing the amount of stress you are going through. But a bride-to-be should enjoy each and every moment of the preparation and the final event. You deserve to feel like the princess you really are. There’s no doubt you want everything to be perfect but worrying about it too much won’t help at all! So, don’t stress too much and don’t forget to pamper yourself before your special day.
