Winter weddings are awesome. That's a fact. But they do require some extra thought compared to holding your wedding in the summer. Read on for my top tips on how to make your winter wedding the best ever.
Shrugs or wraps for bridesmaids are a must, unless you want them blue and shivering in the photos! And it's worth putting out extra umbrellas for guests who forget theirs.
The theme of warmth should continue through the catering. Comfort food is king in winter - think hearty soups, roast dinners and scrumptious puddings. Ask your venue or caterers for advice on what goes down well in cold weather.
If you're having some of your photos outdoors then get a pair of wellies or uggs to wear under your dress. It will avoid ruining your wedding shoes and will keep your feet warm!
Also, make sure that someone in the bridal party has an ipod with your first dance and a suitable playlist in case your band or DJ get held up by winter weather.
There are loads of winter-themed ideas on blogs and pinterest at this time of year. If you're going for a Christmassy theme then baubles in a glass bowl make a beautiful centrepiece. Or you could even go all out and have mini-Christmas trees! And whatever your theme you can't go wrong with lots of lights and candles; they really warm up a room.
So there you go. The top things you need to consider when planning a winter wedding. All that's left now is to light your candles, pull on your wellies, grab your mulled wine and make your winter wedding one to remember!
