About Me

wedding planning from a man's perspective

As a man, I know next to nothing about planning a wedding. My fiancée and I agreed that we would work together to plan our wedding. She provided me with a long list of things that I was to do independently, a list that she was going to take care of, and a list that we would work on together. The minute she handed me these three sheets of paper, I knew that we were in for a long six months. That was when I started talking to her about hiring someone to help us with the planning of our wedding. Visit our blog to find out how we worked together with a planner to make our day the best it could be.

4 Tips to Help You Plan a Winter Wedding

Winter may not be known as wedding season, but it can still be a beautiful time of year to get married. Winter weddings are often inspired by the idea of a winter wonderland. Here are a few tips that will help you plan and style a winter wedding.

#1 Add Some Winter Accessories to the Bridal Outfits

First, you are going to want to invest in some winter accessories for your wedding party. With a winter wedding, you have a fun chance to incorporate some winter accessories into your wedding costumes. For example, you could add faux fur stoles that drape around one's shoulder for your bridesmaids. This can add some elegance to their outfits while ensuring that everyone stays warm as well.

For the bride, instead of going with short sleeves, you can go with long sleeves for the wedding dress. Long-sleeved wedding dresses are really beautiful. These winter wedding accessories will keep everyone warm while adding grace and elegance to your wedding as well.

For a more functional accessory, you can have your bridal party add tights under their dresses, and the bride can wear tights under her wedding dress as well. The appearance of the dresses will not be altered.

#2 Use Only One Venue

Travel can be a little tricky in the winter, so in order to make sure that your guests are able to make it safely from the ceremony to the reception, choose one venue that can serve as both. If that is not possible, choose two venues that are really close together. Having both the ceremony and reception in one venue or in two really close venues will make it easier to figure out transportation if the weather turns bad.

#3 Use Warm Winter Colors

Next, think about the colors that you want to use for your wedding. Add warmth to your wedding by using warm, rich tones that are associated with winter, such as gold, burgundy, or berry. You can add in some greenery as well. Using warm colors can help bring together the feeling of your wedding.

#4 Have Fun With the Wedding Favors

Finally, have some fun with the wedding favors. Go for wedding favors that have a winter theme. For example, holiday cookies, candy canes, or even blankets make great winter wedding favors. Embrace the season and provide your wedding guests with a wedding favor that will not only remind them of your special day but is actually something they can use or eat and enjoy. 

When planning a winter wedding, take the season into account. Add winter clothing accessories to the wedding party outfits. Pick one location for the wedding and reception. Embrace warm winter colors. Make your wedding favors something practical and enjoyable that corresponds with the winter season.
