Fantastic, you made it past the title. That means that you’re already (even IF subconsciously), the perfect fit for a winter wedding.. you’ll want to keep reading.

Here are 4 ways that prove your winter wedding wins the long game, and reaps the benefits of the short game- not available to ANY other season.


Keep reading. Hear me out.
In the spring’ we deal with mud, slush, ice, rain, snow, warm, cold, mud.. mud.. mud.
In the summer; its mosquitos, heat, humidity, rain, thunderstorms, tornado warnings, mud, floods, grass stains, sweating, sun burn, heat stroke..
In the fall; it’s a wild card. Will it be hot, cold, leaves, no leaves, colourful leaves, soggy leaves? Will it rain the morning of and take all of your enviro design with it? Like I said.. a wild card.
But in the winter- we know what we’re getting and we can plan for it! Snow, cold, ice.. okay- shuttle the guests and plan to stay indoors. Easy peasy. Contingency planning in the winter is by far, the easiest of all seasons. On top of that- the only wild card you’ll get is whether the photos will be gorgeous or phenomenal and your winter wedding attire adds all the romance and awe to these photos.


Its almost with 100% certainty that your venue will have a reduced rate, allowing you to stretch your budget so much further than you ever thought possible. It also allows more couples the opportunity for a higher end experience, like booking at Sparrow Lane Events. Whether that’s because the venue rates are discounted or because the availability is more abundant, you win the best of both worlds. Venues won’t be the only provider with discounted rates, many times photographers, videographers , DJ’s and live performers will have discounted rates as well. Not to mention how much more you will get out of your floral budget when you are not designing in the prime season.




Aside from saving on the budget, think about how you’ll spend your honeymoon and anniversaries for the next 75 years. Are you heading to a tropical paradise in July? Not likely. How about in January? You bet you’re jumping on that pane the next day! What about your anniversary? How do you envision spending it every year? What do you love to do? If that’s travelling to someplace balmy- then this is the PERFECT excuse to make it an annual getaway just for the two of you.. right when we hit the negative doubles and the plows start filling your driveway, you’re sipping a sangria on the Napali Coast.


Of all the weddings I have planned, it’s the winter weddings that have had the best turn out, travel and all. Why? Because it means that family can be together for the holidays, even if it doesn’t fall ON a holiday. There’s something about being together in the winter, that just magnetises families to come together. Maybe it’s the cuddle weather, the holiday visiting that just got easier, the joy of the season, comfort food, bar experiences, unique way to gather or the anticipation of what the experience will be; the RSVP stats, are always quite high for my winter wedding couples.

           Families have always extended the wedding trip to include more time with family and friends, reducing their holiday madness trying to get it all in. Guests have always commented how much they love this opportunity!

      Always provide the guests with as many details that will ease their minds when it comes to winter travel; shuttle, accommodations, order of events.. they appreciate it far more than you know!
