Three Reasons To Have A Wonderful Winter Wedding

A wonderful winter wedding can be a great way to add a theme to your special day, save money, and embrace the magic of the Christmas season.

Reasons Why You Should Have A Winter Wedding

Have you considered a winter wedding? We’ve listed our top three reasons why you should get married this winter.

Save money on décor

Fairy lights, mulled wine, Christmas trees and snuggly blankets. Who doesn’t like the sound of a winter wedding? There are plenty of reasons to embrace the season and have to go all out for a winter wedding, but did you know it could save money?

Here at Hargate Hall, we take special care to choose a stunning centrepiece Christmas tree each year, and we decorate it in style, as it sits in the heart of the Hall. This tree could be the most impressive decoration of your winter wedding and the best part is, you haven’t had to foot the bill! This is the same for many venues (but it’s always worth checking) – Christmas decorations are a given and can save you lots of time when you’re considering how to style your wedding day. This could also save you money as you’ll be able to reduce the number of decorations you need.

No need to agonise over a theme

If you’re tying the knot in December, you don’t need to worry about deciding on your wedding theme. Christmas is a given. This means you can embrace all the wonderful Christmas season traditions. Think Christmas dinner for the wedding breakfast, Christmas crackers for the favours, and even Christmas cake for your wedding cake! Lots of people love Christmas and embracing this theme is sure to fill your guests with cheer. If you are struggling with decisions, or you can’t quite pick a theme, perhaps a winter wedding is for you – it’s one less decision to make.

There is no need to worry about the weather

Let’s face it, lots of us wonder if the sun will shine on our wedding day. Fingers and toes are crossed for warmth and no rain, but the weather is the one thing we can’t control. Yet with a winter wedding, no one expects the perfect blue sky day. This means you don’t have to worry about rain. If you’re lucky, you may even get a white wedding! You can plan for candles, blankets, and even warm mulled wine to ensure you make the most of the cold weather by incorporating all the best parts. This can take away stress. It will mean your guests dress appropriately too, they will be wrapped up for photos and they won’t want to rush inside.
