Reasons To Have Your Wedding In The Winter

If you are eager to have your wedding in the winter you might be:

1. Dreaming of getting a winter snowfall wedding photo

Winter months make for some gorgeous photos with the elegant and soft snowfall in the background. It doesn't work out in the couples favor every time, but when it does, is it ever beautiful.

2. Planning your wedding in the mountains

Nothing quite compares to a winter getaway in the mountains. The possibilities to get wedding photos in ski gear on the slopes or under the moonlight snowfall are truly amazing. It might be cold, but 20 years down the road, it'll be worth having that framed photograph.

3. If you are a fair-skinned bride

With a bright white background such as a snowy mountain, it’s hard to argue a time you will look more gorgeous. Some people just suit the winter atmosphere better than others, and if you are one of those people, it’s a perfectly valid reason to have your wedding in the winter. If you hate the hot sun, chances are you glow in winter, and, out of all the seasons, your best chance for dressing up like a princess is in winter. Choose colors that compliment and contrast well with your fair skin and the snow such as: forest green, cherry red, deep teal, or bamboo yellow.

4. Excited for a cozy wedding

No chance of being rained out. At least in winter, everyone expects winter weather. You won't have to make any last minute decisions or plan for emergencies unless you are going to get hit with a blizzard.
