A winter wedding can have so many advantages to a summer wedding. As we all know, the weather in the UK can be unpredictable, to say the least, so is having a wedding during the winter months the answer to this age-old problem? Planning for wet and cold weather, or even snow from the start will eliminate any disasters that may occur had you planned for a warm dry day in the summer… as we all know, we can’t bank on the British Summertime!
Venues will be quieter on the whole out of the peak summer ‘wedding season’ so availability for a start will be better meaning you won’t have to take whatever dates they have free or wait for too long. If you think a marquee wedding is out of the question during winter, think again. Most marquee companies can provide adequate heating for the marquee to keep you and your guests toasty warm for the whole day through to the wee small hours if that’s what you have in mind.
Indirect Blower heaters are the most efficient form of heating for a marquee but other types of heating may also be available. Make sure you book these with the marquee provider at the time of your booking, don’t leave this to the last minute as they will be in high demand during the winter months!
As the nights draw in early in the winter, take advantage of this with a fireworks display to get your reception off in style. Rather than having to wait until the end of the night before the guests start to make their way home, this could be a real feature and even use it to kick-start the celebrations!
Take inspiration from nature for your decorating and go with deep colours, rich velvet, winter foliage and frosted glasses. A winter wonderland theme can be the inspiration and be the focal point for your colour schemes making the wedding really stand out from all those summer events.
