Reasons to Have a Winter Wedding

You heard it here first: Winter weddings have a lot going for them. Yes, summer weddings sure are stunning, but there are some downsides to consider. Sweltering heat could make a hot mess of a bride's carefully coiffed wedding hairstyle. And with a hectic itinerary packed with other summer nuptials, some guests might be forced to RSVP 'no' to your warm-weathered bash. Bummer, right? But with a winter wedding, you can avoid all that and get stunning snowy wedding photos, holiday-themed wedding decorations, and more. Being a winter bride or groom is basically the best. Hey it's Rachel with Rachel Z Photography and let's look at some top reasons to have a winter wedding.

Less Stress

The risk of rain and wind can make the planning period extremely stressful and potentially costly if you need to add a tent, she says. Guests are frequently exposed to heat and cold in all outdoor weddings and they can be very uncomfortable. Taking Mother Nature out of the equation means less stress for you, your vendors, your guests, and your family.

Better Rates

Fall is tough for vendors and venue owners as they're juggling so many events, brides, families, vendors, and logistics. You'll have more flexibility to come in and set up early or break down later, as there's likely not another event right after yours that the venue needs to prep for right away.

Free Decorations

Any venue you select will most likely already be decorated for the holiday season, adding a more celebratory feel to your special day. And, at no cost to you.

Cheaper Travel

Winter weddings allow guests to take advantage of off-season pricing for their travel and accommodation options. This is a win-win for everyone, I think.
