5 Reasons Why You Should Have A Winter Wedding
1. The weather outside may be frightful but the fire & hot chocolate, are oh so delightful! Hot-chocolate bar? S’mores station? A romantic glow from the hearth? Yes, please. Now that you cannot do in July!2. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is a time for loved ones to gather and celebrate, and everyone is full of good cheer. Why not combine the season with your wedding. The halls are all decked out, and everywhere you turn are warm glowing lights and cheerful holiday décor! Everything is merry and bright, including your venue!
3. Baby it’s cold outside! How about a bonfire after-party? Cozy up with friends and family around a warm fire. Sharing stories, warming your toes and making memories that will last a lifetime.
4. Over the river and through the woods… Forget the limo or bus, and transport your guests by horse and buggy instead. What a sweet treat it would be to give your guests a little holiday tour of the city, park or small town where your wedding is taking place.
5. Jingle bells, jingle bells. There are so many sweet wintery details that add the perfect touch of whimsy to your wedding-day style. Pinecones, jingle bells and candy canes are just a few things that add character and charm to your décor. When it comes to fashion, fuzzy sweaters, leather boots and oh-so-cozy scarves are a sweet way to add an unexpected touch to your bridal look.
So make a list and check it twice, because there may be more reasons than you think to say “I do” in the snowy season! Check out all the details from this styled shoot and a fun video of Rockhill’s tablescape coming to life!
