If you are planning a winter wedding, then here are some tips to help you plan a great celebration that is season-appropriate.
- Serve the right foods – Seasonal foods are always going to be fresher, taste better, and feel right to guests. In winter, there are many varieties of squash that could be perfect for the occasion. Hearty foods like pasta are also well-received in winter.
- Display the right flowers – Roses are always in style, but for a winter wedding, why not try white roses instead of red? Seasonal flowers will always look the best and be less expensive, so you can also try poinsettias or calla lilies.
- Plan ahead for outdoor photos – Have something for you and your wedding party to cover up with between shots. Have the shoot well-planned to minimize how long you have to be out in the cold. The photographer will have to make a lot more adjustments to your pictures if everyone’s faces turn pale and noses turn red.
- Play the right songs – Obviously, you probably won’t be leaning toward holiday songs at your wedding. However, you may want to play some songs that combat the season, such as “Hot in Herre” by Nelly. Of course, songs like that are best later in the evening once older guests have gone home. You can discuss the details with your wedding DJ.
