Winter weddings are growing in popularity at The O’ Neill Arms Country House Hotel— December is now the number three wedding month to get married, behind May and June — and with good reason… here’s why.
1. Seasonal décor gives your wedding a unique touch. A winter wedding allows you to experiment with themed décor. An easy way to incorporate this is with natural components, such as frosted pinecones, pine leaves, snowflakes, or holiday lights to enhance your winter wedding wonderland.
2. With the nights drawing in, you can start your evening party that bit sooner, which means you have longer to enjoy it. Dress up your venue and get the atmosphere going from the moment dusk sets in. You can use fairy lights to create a whimsical setup and remember you can dress up exterior trees, too.
3.Snow on your Wedding day – If you’re lucky enough to get a dusting of snow on your big day, your photographs will really make your wedding look like a winter wonderland.
4. Any colour palette can work in the winter. When planning a colour scheme for your wedding, the neutrality of the winter months complements a variety of shades — from rustic to glamorous, any colour is sure to pop! Try incorporating your colours with winter foliage to emphasize the seasonal elements
5. Your fashion options are endless. While there is a typical weather-driven dress style for every other season — sleeveless for spring, strapless for summer — a winter wedding allows for the bride to experiment with various glamorous looks. Wear long sleeves, or wear that strapless gown and accessorize with an embroidered coat, faux fur, or upper arm gloves for a warm yet stylish look
6. Don’t get Hung up on the Weather – If you’re marrying in winter, you don’t need to worry about whether you’re going to have rain, sun or whether it’s going to be cold. Your focus will be on creating a perfect indoor wedding and there’s far less uncertainty with it.
