Some brides may opt for a Christmas
winter wedding. It's the season of joy, after all!
And what better way to celebrate than with a promise of eternal love than on Valentine's Day?
Winter wedding & honeymoon planning
Beware, however, planning your winter wedding too close to the Christmas holidays, since prices will rise in correlation with the holiday party season. On the upside, your venue will probably already be decorated for the holidays, so there's great savings on lights and decorations if you're planning on a Christmas theme.
Another added advantage? Off peak winter vacation honeymoons are probably the most affordable throughout the year, and a great excuse to escape to a warm, tropical island for fun in the sun.
Winter Wedding Flowers
Baby's Breath, Carnations, Chrysanthemums, Freesia, Gardenias, Lillies, Queen Ann's
Lace, Statice, Star of Bethlehem, White Roses
Overall, a winter wedding may take special thought, but the fun and special memories that result are definitely worth all the early planning.
Just remember to book your reception venue way in advance, and be sure to send out your invitations as early as possible so that friends and relatives can plan to attend your winter wedding during what may be a very busy holiday season.
Winter wedding colors & decorations
Besides the Christmas theme of ruby reds and emerald greens, also consider the traditional winter wonderland theme in shades of dark and icy blues, or build your decorating theme around a white wedding complete with artifical snow, silver snowflakes, and stunning white flowers such as tulips, gardenias or calla lillies.
