Getting married in the winter months can be tough, darker evenings, the (very) high chance of rain or snow and having to stick your wedding day indoors from start to finish. We know there can be a variety of elements which can turn you against having your wedding at this time of year, but we’re here to show you just how magical it can be!
Keeping warm is key for a winter wedding, the last thing you want is to be shivering down the aisle. Our Georgia Bridal collection has plenty of long sleeved and covered gowns to choose from, even providing you with the opportunity to wear an overdress, which you can remove as your day progresses (or when it gets a little too hot on the dance floor!).
If you’ve got your heart set on a strapless or more revealing gown but are still worrying about the cold, your veil can be the perfect opportunity to add a little coverage whilst still following a fashionable and traditional approach to bridal style. Our big sister brand, Linzi Jay Accessories, has a wide range of veils ranging from designs which are more simple and unified, suitable for a decorated gown, or veils with a little more drama and texture.
The Linzi Jay feather veil is just perfect for a winter wedding! Not only will she provide coverage, her feather trim is beautifully festive and will definitely be a showstopper. All the while you can use this to cover your arms and shoulders, problem solved!
The weather over here in the UK is extremely unpredictable, no matter the season. Be mindful of this when picking out your wedding venue. Accessibility is a must! Country side venues can be the most picturesque, but it is important to consider how your guests will get to and from the venue, especially with snow and ice. Nevertheless, good planning and organisation is key if your dream location is slightly out of the way. Make sure your guests have plenty of time to get to the venue or even suggest organising your own method of transport so the whole party arrives together (and in one piece!).
Wedding planning can be daunting no matter the circumstance, but when you have all the elements to worry about too, it can get a little overwhelming. Take a step back and consider all the benefits to your winter wedding and they will slowly outweigh the cons. Weddings at this time of year are less popular, but this means your day will be more unique! Fighting over dates and making sure your friends and family aren’t going to be on their summer holidays isn’t a worry, all the focus is on you. Although snow and frost can be a obstacle at times, what a beautiful backdrop this scene can be for your wedding photos!
