At Events by Emma and for most vendors and suppliers, wedding season is designated to the summer months. However, every once and awhile we get lucky and stumble upon the fun and daring couple that want to wed during the winter months.
Don’t get us wrong, we adore our spring, summer and autumn newlyweds — but there’s just something about a winter wedding.
If these gorgeous photos of Melissa and Adam’s winter wedding photo shoot doesn’t convince you, here are five reasons why winter weddings are way worth your while:
1. Save Money $$
We already know winter weddings are rare, which means wedding vendors and suppliers are usually more willing to bend their prices to get your business. Don’t be afraid to negotiate to make it fit into your budget, you’ll be surprised!
2. Choice of venues
Our summer couples know in order to get their first choice of venues, they have to be sure to book WAY in advance. We’re talking about 12 to 18 months in advance. However, our winter couples often have their choice of which venue suits their vision.
3. Choice of dates
No need to fight with your brother or your best friend’s cousin over the long-weekend in August. Having your wedding in the winter months allows you to choose a date without having to worry about intruding on anyone else’s. Plus, your wedding will be the event of the season!
4. No heat
We know first hand how disappointing it is to spend your morning getting your makeup done only to have it melt away half way through the wedding ceremony. And for our men, we know those suits aren’t the best 30+ attire, especially during hour-long photo shoots in the sun.
5. Perfect Photography Season
Lighting is a huge element of photography. The natural light reflecting off the white snow offers a beautiful scenery for you and your wedding party. Don’t be surprise when you get your photos back and they’re even more amazing than you thought.
