Spring Is Here...Time To Plan Your Winter Wedding!Spring Is Here...Time To Plan Your Winter Wedding!

It seems like many parts of the country have just barely put away their snow shovels, but with spring in the air, it is the perfect time to start planning a winter wedding. With flowers blooming and birds chirping, it might be hard to imagine that winter will be here again anytime soon, but for brides-to-be, the cold weather will be back sooner than you think. So, with spring in the air, it is time to get to work planning your winter wedding!

With balmy weather on hand, it can be hard to get into the spirit of the winter months, however this is the perfect time to make winter wedding arrangements. If you have not done so yet, begin by choosing your wedding theme. Winter Wonderland is a classic cold weather wedding theme, perfect if you love the frosty look of snowflakes, crystal bridal jewelry, and white branches. For holiday weddings, a classic deep red and evergreen color palette is traditional and very easy to pull off. Or opt for something a little different, such as an opulent purple and gold color scheme, which is marvelous in rich velvets, metallic trims, and formal accents like crystal bridal jewelry in eggplant.

Once you have decided upon the perfect theme, it is time to book your wedding venue. With winter about eight months away, it might be hard to feel urgent, but even in the off season, the best reception sites can book up fast. You must plan especially early if your wedding date will be around Christmas or New Year's Eve, as venues such as hotel ballrooms will be booked for parties as well as weddings.

One thing that can be nice about getting married in the winter is that you may find reduced competition for vendors. This is particularly true if you choose a date which is avoids peak dates like Christmas, New Year's, and Valentine's Day. What that can mean for you is negotiating power. Florists and caterers who are overbooked in June may have very little to do in January, making them more likely to cut a deal to get your business. Certain reception venues also offer off-season discounts, especially those in summery areas like beaches. This can be a great reason to have a winter wedding for those whose ideas are larger than their budgets: generous off-season discounts can allow you to have the wedding of your dreams, with all of the details you envision.

Spring is also the ideal time to shop for a winter wedding bridal gown. Unlike regular clothing, bridal boutiques do not have seasonal styles. This means that even in April or May you can try on samples of gowns perfect for December weddings: rich fabrics like velvet and satin, sumptuous embroidery, and sparkling crystal embellishments. Some designer gowns can take up to six months to special order, and then you will need time for alterations, so the spring is definitely the right time to shop for a winter bridal gown.

With the main elements in place, you can spend the summer months deciding on the details for your winter wedding at a more leisurely pace. Attend cake tastings, design the centerpieces with your florist, and shop for bridesmaid jewelry gifts. By the time the cold weather comes back around, you will be ready to have the perfect winter wedding!
