While most people opt for a summer wedding, an increasing number of couples are now waiting until the temperature drops for a more romantic and budget-friendly big day.
When it comes to choosing the perfect time for a wedding, most people will opt for one in the summer, where you can bask in the sunshine, without the fear of rain. Although this is the most popular choice, more people than ever are looking at winter weddings as a possibility for their big day. There are several reasons why a winter wedding could be the perfect choice for this memorable occasion.
Unique and Inspirational
As winter weddings are much less common, yours will feel unique and more special than the others. Your big day should stand out and what better way to do it than holding it at a different time of the year, with extra special photographs for looking back at with fond memories. The other good thing about winter weddings is that you’ll probably get a better turnout than you would at other times of the year. Summer can be a tricky time with people booking their holidays, so winter can be the favourable option if you want to ensure everyone turns up.
If you want to create the perfect wedding photographs, a winter scene can really enhance the look and give you better photos than you would with a summer wedding. Snow on the trees and crisp winter air can really make a difference with photographs and allow you to experiment with various romantic winter scenes. Many people opt for winter weddings, just for this reason alone and who can blame them?
You find your dream location, only to be told that there is no availability for the next two years! This is common with summer weddings, especially if you are attempting to book popular locations such as Cameron House in Loch Lomond. With winter weddings, however, the availability is greatly increased, so that perfect wedding venue won’t feel as out of reach as it did before. It is ideal if you don’t want to wait years to get wed but would rather do it sooner.
In addition to better availability, winter weddings are also less costly. We know how expensive weddings can be, so any way to keep costs to a minimum is always going to be widely appreciated. If you book it in advance, you can get even better deals than you would normally.
More Wedding Dress Options
In the summer, there are limited choices when it comes to wedding dress options, as the last thing you want is to be perspiring heavily as you strut down the aisle! With a winter wedding, there are many more options when it comes to dresses. You can choose a long sleeved option or go for a skimpier dress and cover up from the cold with a jacket. If you have a specific idea of the kind of dress you want, you don’t want the weather to be a reason for not being able to wear it!
