Have you always dreamed about getting married in the death of winter? Probably not. But even if winter is not the most desired season by brides and grooms-to-be, there are many advantages with having a winter wedding.
Here are 10 good reasons that surely will make you change your mind and make you dream of a wedding in winter wonderland style.
1.Winter weddings are super romantic
Some people might not admit it, but winter is a magical season. It could be because of Christmas or snow, but is there anything more romantic than wrapping yourself up in wool blankets and getting cozy in front of the fire with the one you love while the snow blows outside?
2. More availability from vendors
If you organize a spring-summer-autumn wedding, it can be difficult to have the availability of the desired vendors (unless you book them 1-2 years in advance). From November to March is officially the low-season of weddings, and by having a winter wedding you’ll have a much better chance at booking the vendors you want.
3. Off-season discounts
Besides being able to book your favorite vendors, there is also a good chance that you will be able to get some “off season” discounts, especially with the venues.
4. Two parties in one
Are you Christmas’ lovers? Are you famous for your New Year’s Eve super parties? So why not join one of your favorite holidays with the wedding? You can do a theme wedding and double your reasons to celebrate.

5. Your guests will thank you
During the traditional weddings’ months, you will also have to worry about the availability of your guests! Weddings never come alone: there are years when all of your friends decide to get married, your mailbox receives invitations as you are one the most famous Hollywood stars, and every weekend of June and July is busy. To avoid wedding date’s conflict, the solution is to choose winter.
6. Hot Chocolate Bar
This one is pretty self-explanatory…hot chocolate bar is the warmest party feature ever. Not only children will be happy, trust me.

7. Weather (Un)Predictability
When you plan a wedding in spring, summer, or autumn, you can only bet on the weather. One day it might be sunny and warm and the next day might be cold and rainy: cross your fingers and hope desperately that the outdoor wedding that you’ve always dreamed about will not get ruined by a storm. In winter, we know that the weather will be most likely cold, the venue must be indoors, so you can arrange everything accordingly.
8. Photo shoot in the snow? Breathtaking
You might not love cold, but snow is always charming. And a snowy landscape is a fairytale setting for spectacular, romantic and breathtaking photos. PS: give to the photographer a pair of gloves as present…

9. Marriage in the chalet
This point is only for mountain lovers and intimate weddings. The charm of a wedding in a lodge is priceless: the snowy mountains around you, the silence of nature, the warmth of a rustic location and the scent of wood.
10. Tropics’ Honeymoon
If you marry in July and August, your honeymoon could cost a bit ‘more because of the high season. Getting married in the winter months and then leave in January and February will help to reduce costs and you can enjoy Australia, Maldives, South Africa, or a Caribbean islands.
