Preparation is truly key when it comes to planning a winter wedding. The weather during
this time may be a bit unpredictable, but there are ways to make sure that your special day
run as smooth as possible. Below are some of our favorite tips on how to have the day of
your dreams without the stress!

1. Your guests – give them early notice!
It’s important to remember that during the winter season many of your guests will be
working around the holidays. It can also be an expensive season for traveling! We
recommend that you send out your invitations or save-the-date cards to your guests as
early as possible before they get too busy. We’re sure they’ll appreciate the advanced
notice.

2. Seasonal Colors
Although wedding seasons are beautiful, it’s important to remember that some of your
favorite colors may not be in season. We recommend that while planning for your big day,
you choose a neutral color scheme that can be worked around. There is an especially
limited selection of flowers during this time of year, but florists will be sure to find
alternative options for you!

3. Keep warm
This goes for both you and your guests! It’s almost guaranteed that during a winter
wedding it’s going to be chilly outside and you’ll want to be sure that your bridal party and
guests stay warm throughout the entire wedding and reception. Incorporate a few trendy
space heaters and blankets into your wedding, or maybe offer some party favours such as
warm gloves to keep your guest comfortable. You could even serve a warm beverage for
guests as they walk in!

4. Prepare for weather
During the winter season, the chances of cold temperatures and snow are generally higher
compared to warmer seasons depending on your location. If you’re having your wedding
out of town, make sure to give yourself enough travel time. This goes for the day of your
wedding as well. If your wedding is located in a place with freezing temperatures, make
sure you aren’t rushing on icy roads. There’s no need to be stressing about time in addition
to safety on your day, so make sure to prepare!

5. Have a coat check
Your guests will most likely be bundled up for cold weather when they arrive at your
wedding, but be sure to have a place for them to store their coats. It is a simple way to
make sure that your guests are comfortable and not worrying about their belongings while
they hit the dance floor!

6. Lighting
There’s nothing quite as stunning as outdoor wedding photos – especially in the winter!
However, it’s important to remember that the weather can be tricky during this time of the
year. To get those perfect shots, you’ll want to be sure to get your photos taken before
3pm. But make sure to be quick, you’ll never know when the weather could change
suddenly.
