5 Reasons to Consider a Winter Wedding

Traditionally, weddings in the UK take place during the summertime, but the number of winter weddings is rising. Whilst the idea may seem strange to some, there are lots of reasons to consider a winter wedding. Here are five to get you started:
1. Stop Worrying About the Weather
Unless you’re intending to get married in the Mediterranean, a summer wedding can’t guarantee good weather. You might be dreaming of glorious sunshine, but in reality summer weather is the most unpredictable. When you get married in winter, it’s going to be cold, so you can plan outfits and indoor photos accordingly.
2. Significantly Reduce Your Budget
The demand for summer weddings is extremely high, and prices reflect this. Everything from the venue to the caterer and photographer will be significantly more expensive in the summer, and competition for the most popular vendors will be high – so it’s not always possible to get your first choice.
3. Indulge in Winter Comfort Food
When you get married in winter, you can enjoy traditional, hearty British comfort food. There’s plenty to choose from, such as warming stews or bangers and mash. If you opt for a Christmas wedding, make use of seasonal favourites, like mince pies and mulled wine.
4. Stand Out with a Seasonal Theme
Holding a winter wedding is the perfect opportunity to stand out and plan something different to the rest of your friends and family. Winter weddings are incredibly romantic – why not use candlelight or fairy lights to create a cosy and magical atmosphere? If you choose a date close to Christmas, your venue is also likely to be decorated for the holiday season, which can reduce your costs even further.
5. Enjoy a Tropical Honeymoon
Winter weddings also provide you with the chance to escape for a tropical honeymoon, avoiding the hurricane season, which typically runs from June to November.
