Reasons to get married in winter
WHY MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING MARRIED IN THE COLDER MONTHS
While most couples tend to opt for a summer wedding, in recent years many love birds have leaned towards winter to celebrate their nuptials. There are many reasons for this.
SUMMER IS HOT!
Let’s face it we’ve all perspired our way through a Perth summer wedding, some of us in our monkey suits, some of you in your wedding dresses. It’s not that much fun. Sure the sun sets later and it’s great to have an outdoor wedding on a clear summer’s evening but those sweat marks under your arms don’t photograph well.
WINTER IS ROMANTIC
Come on, staring into your loved one’s eyes, while a roaring fire crackles in the background of some romantic venue, while the rain pours down outside is pretty cool. And when you’re inside all warm, cosy and romantic; it makes for a more intimate setting.
All you have to do is make sure you choose an appropriate wedding venue, maybe an old castle, or a beautiful indoor reception area with lovely views. A lush garden, tumbling waterfalls or a rambling river make for a great ambiance and beautiful pics in winter.
WINTER LIGHT IS AWESOME
Photographers love soft light and because you can’t always choose the time you get to take the wedding pics, especially the ones with the family and entourage, you often land up taking them in harsh summer light, and having to do your very best to come up with the right shots. Of course the professionals always do.
In winter the light is softer, and the sun sets earlier. You often get dappled light and moody skies, and of course pics in the rain with umbrellas can be creative and fun. With more to work with, your pics land up being better, yes you heard it, better. Even though taking pics in the rain can be a pain, the results often exceed those of summer pics, and you often get more spectacular sunsets and sunrises in the cooler months.
MORE VARIETY IN THE MENU
Let’s face it, we like to eat more in winter, and the colder the weather the more options you have for delicious food. Hot soups, aromatic curries and some gluhwein to wash it down, makes for a comfort eating fest that you certainly don’t get in summer.
Also, you get to serve hot chocolates, coffees, cherry and brandy to warm you up, as well as specialist teas instead of just drinking beer, whiskey, and cocktails. Although that’s fine too.
PEOPLE DANCE MORE
When people are cold they tend to dance more, so even though you will have heaters and a fireplace at your winter wedding, guests are more like to get on the dance floor when it’s chilly outside. Makes for a good party.
