While many people envision getting married in the spring, summer, or fall, a select few love the cozy ambiance that winter weddings can offer! If you and your partner happen to be winter lovers, there are many wonderful ways to celebrate your special day, even in colder temperatures.
Winter weddings can have an enchanted beauty about them; they are convenient for venue opportunities and quite festive. If you’re considering getting married in the season of snow and celebrations, here are some winter wedding ideas to help you get started!
Book a Venue That Embodies the Season
When looking for winter wedding venues, you’ll have unique opportunities to explore venue locations and regional areas that highlight the season’s beauty. Look for a venue that matches the season’s finest experiences. For example, hosting your wedding at a ski resort, like The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vermont, can allow your guests to celebrate your vows and hit the trails on the same weekend! Or, bring your guests to the winter majesty of the Berkshires; host your wedding at a quaint boutique hotel in the mountains!
Another unique winter venue idea, New England wineries, slower in winter months, can give guests access to areas they couldn’t during the busier times of the year. Be creative! A wedding in winter can be something both unique and memorable!
If you’re not interested in hitting the slopes or winter wineries, stay in the city! Boston can be beautiful in the winter; the city lights glowing, the snow-covered brownstones, and much more. You and your guests can enjoy a beautiful view of the wintery city skyline while tucked away in a luxurious hotel overlooking the Boston Commons or even the Charles River.

Think Outside the Box With Wedding Decor
One of the more creative aspects of winter weddings are the options for decor. Seasonal decorations like wreaths, pine trees, and candles incorporate a theme consistent with the time of year. It needn’t be holiday-focused; instead, consider winter lights, floral arrangements, and snow-themed table dressings. There are so many interior and exterior design opportunities with winter weddings!
Keep Everyone Warm
While winter weddings do have their own distinctive quality, of course, the weather must be considered. Unexpected snowstorms or freezing temperatures may require a change of plans. If any part of the wedding is outdoors, make sure everyone is prepared for the temperature, and a heated indoor location is available. Consider providing blankets during the ceremony and heat lamps wherever guests congregate. Any resort or hotel will have a plan to keep everyone warm and cozy during the winter wedding festivities – Hot Toddy, anyone?
