I’m sure when you think wedding you think sun, beautiful weather, perfect dress, the most perfect groom and the most amazing location not rain, hail, thunder and the coldest of days. However, we have come up with some compelling reasons as to why you should consider a winter wedding.
From venues to dresses you will be looking at discounted winter rates making your budget go further! Allowing you to spend more on your honeymoon. You will also have more options for dates as it is a quiet season or time in our season.
Speaking of honeymoon while Australia is in winter and you are enjoying your hot chocolate by the fire the other side of the world are laying around enjoying mojitos by the pool which is definitely something you want to be doing on your honeymoon, consider New York, Paris, Italy or the Greek islands to enjoy the first weeks as Mr & Mrs. Also remember we do live in Melbourne and more often than not our weather forecasters have been wrong and we have experienced all seasons in one day.
The dress, what you have been thinking about since you were a little girl; Sparkling, white and beautiful. Winter you may think of as being the worst time for a strapless, backless wedding dress, however the latest trend is a beautiful long sleeve lace dress, definitely something we love. If you are not the long sleeve dress kind of girl and would prefer strapless your wedding ceremony and reception are most likely going to be indoors, the only time you will be outside is for photographs. You may also want to consider a nice shawl or shrug.
Winter is one of the best times for photographs, the lighting is perfect, guests won’t be squinting and your make up or spray tans won’t run and ruin your photos or your beautiful dress, if you do go for the long sleeve lace option you won’t even need a spray tan!
All those flowers you have spent numerous hours searching through pinterest to find the perfect colours and style to match everything on your day to then just wither through the day from heat, won’t be a problem as winter is the best time for flowers, they last longer due to the cooler weather allowing you, your family and guests to enjoy them in their homes, a reminder of your special day, days to follow.
Plus winter is full of romance, the cold brings us closer together. So get cosy, close and prepare for a winter warmer wedding with us.
