The holiday season is here! And while this season puts everyone is in a better mood, wedding planners are in an especially good mood as holiday season is known as engagement season! But we think this particular time of year is beautiful for a wedding as well! Think about it.. the holidays bring out the best in everyone so all of your guest would be in a great mood and want to be around their family & friends to celebrate. So celebrating your wedding on top of all of the holidays would be like icing on the cake, amirite?! So here is our list of winter wedding do's & don'ts!
Do: Embrace it!! Especially if it is snowing because that will make for some AMAZING pictures and natural decor!!
Don't: Don't overlook transportation!! Plan ahead so you, your bridal party, family, and guests don't have to worry!
Do: Go for the long sleeves! Long sleeve wedding dresses are SO IN right now and since your wedding is in the winter you won't have to sacrifice sweating your butt off for a fashion statement!
Don't: Although your wedding is taking place during the holiday season you need to make sure you don't go too overboard with adding festive decor into the wedding. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas as much as the next person (if not more) but no one wants to look like Mrs. Claus on their wedding day!
Do: Treat yo~self to a beautiful wrap! Embrace the cold weather and be sure to take it into consideration when getting other accessories like gloves, shoes, etc.!!
Don't: Remember that it will be COLD and you don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable! So don't forget to get wraps or blankets for your bridal party and a few extra for guests!!
Do: Feel free to add evergreens and pine cones to
any and every thing but especially to your flowers!!
They create such a simple elegance.. trust me, you'll
thank me later!
Don't: For the love of God don't use colorful flowers!
They are for spring, summer, and even fall weddings
but not for yours! Embrace all of the beautiful in
Do: Think about where your venue is located and what that venue will look like in the winter months!! If you see the venue in the spring it could look like a completely different venue in the winter! Ask the venue if they have any winter look books they could show you from previous weddings at the venue.
Don't: DO NOT DO an outdoor ceremony without making sure your guest will be as comfortable as possible!!
Do: Stick to winter color palettes! Winter colors are so beautiful and this will help you coordinate invitations, linens, and flowers!
Don't: Don't make it look like that one embarrassing neighbor that "over does" their front yard with Christmas decorations. Just because you are having your wedding in a spirited time of year doesn't mean you need to have a holiday theme.
Do: Play your favorite festive music!
Don't: This is not your family Christmas party.. this is your wedding! Pick a few of your favorite holiday songs but keep it classy!
Don't: Don't forget what season your in! This is NOT summer so no one is worried about their "bikini body".
Do: With that being said bring out the comfort food!! This is the one time of year you can eat extra without feeling bad about it so bring out ALL THE GOODS!!
Happy Holidays & Engagement Season!!
