Your Winter Wedding

metroWEDDING • Tips and advice from local experts for planning the perfect day for the bride & groom

(page 2 of 4)

Location, Location, LOCATION!

Your location needs to not only fit your budget but also the theme of your wedding. If your heart desires a destination wedding, but your budget does not, consider venues like COCO KEY. You can have a Tropical-inspired wedding, with the joys of an indoor waterpark for your reception. Just remember to tell your guests to bring their bathing suits!

For a more intimate and natural setting, KIM KNOLL WITH LAURITZEN GARDENS suggests the use of fireplaces. Considering it gets darker earlier in the winter, she also recommends candles, uplighting, and LEDs in centerpieces. And, for the sake and safety of your guests, Knoll suggests that you hold your wedding and reception at the same location.




Some questions to ask of your venue when planning a winter wedding:

  • What are canceling and rescheduling policies if the weather gets bad?
  • Under what circumstances does the venue close?
  • Who is responsible for shoveling the sidewalks?
  • Who will tend to the fireplaces or candles?

Other things to consider when choosing your location:

  • Capacity, how easy will it be to get there?
  • Parking space?
  • Decorating policies?
  • Does the venue provide help in setting up and tearing down?
  • What will you need to do yourself or hire someone to do related to the locations you’re considering?
