Get Married in a Winter Wonderland at Intundla Game Lodge & Bush Spa - Exclusively Yours!
Getting engaged is a very special moment in one's life and when inviting your friends and family to that memorable day, they might expect an invitation for the wedding during the warmer spring or summer months, but what if you have something else in mind? Winter weddings are becoming more and more popular for a number of different reasons and can be just as stylish and elaborate as a wedding during any other seasons of the year. Here are four things to consider when planning your fabulous winter wedding.
Dress for the season
When choosing your dress it is important to be aware of the conditions of your venue and its surroundings. For example, a majority of brides pick strapless dresses for there ceremony, and although beautiful, be prepared by adding something warm and stylish to your dress as well as for the bridesmaids. Ask your venue host what preparations they take or are prepared to take to make your venue warmer if needed.
Create a warm atmosphere
Just because it is cold outside does not mean it has to be cold inside. Choosing the correct colour scheme like red, yellow and orange, as well as accompanying décor, like candles is a sure way of creating a warm, romantic and intimate feeling indoors. Also remember that your guests will already be dressed in warm clothing, meaning that although you don’t want anyone to get cold, you don’t want them, or yourself, to be too warm.
Season friendly Menu
When compiling your menu it is important to select season-friendly foods that will warm the belly from inside. This does not mean hot and spicy food, but rather warm starters and deserts that does not include ice-creams or any frozen treats.
Timing is everything
Sunsets come earlier in winter than in any other season which means that your wedding will most likely start sooner rather than late in the evening. This is especially important when booking a photographer. The last thing you want is wedding photos taken in the dark.
