Winter wedding tips

Will your wed­ding take place dur­ing the cold sea­son? Or are you still in doubt, and weigh all the pros and cons of a win­ter wed­ding? Then we want to help you with our tips and rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the specifics of hold­ing a win­ter wed­ding.

Let’s start with the ques­tion, “How to orga­nize a wed­ding in win­ter?”

In prac­tice, the orga­ni­za­tion of win­ter and sum­mer wed­dings does not have big dif­fer­ences. It is only nec­es­sary to take into account some fea­tures deter­mined by the time of year, name­ly:

  • in win­ter it bright­ens lat­er and dark­ens much ear­li­er. Con­sid­er this fac­tor when con­duct­ing a pho­to ses­sion;
  • the risk of a sud­den change in the weath­er. With our unpre­dictable win­ters, one can­not be sure of the ambi­ent tem­per­a­ture on the wed­ding day until the last. Based on this, think over your out­fit so that it fits both minus 20 and plus 5 degrees;
  • take a ther­mos with hot tea for a walk and a pho­to ses­sion so that you can warm up in the car;
  • think over the route of the walk in such a way that you will not be on the street for a long time. You can freeze, get your out­fit dirty, but on this day you should look per­fect. There­fore, you should not be in nature for more than 10–15 min­utes, alter­nate between street pho­tog­ra­phy and indoor pho­tog­ra­phy.

Now let’s talk about the pros and cons of a win­ter wed­ding.


  • the num­ber of mar­ried cou­ples is much less than in the sum­mer months. This means tougher com­pe­ti­tion in the wed­ding ser­vices mar­ket, and there is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to invite the best pho­tog­ra­ph­er, video­g­ra­ph­er, lead­ing for much less mon­ey. The same goes for choos­ing a restau­rant;
  • in win­ter, in most wed­ding salons, the sea­son of dis­counts and sales begins, so you can save on both the wed­ding dress and the groom’s suit;
  • the oppor­tu­ni­ty to choose the right time for you at the reg­istry office, and not be con­tent with what oth­er cou­ples did not fit;
  • and, of course, do not miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to become hus­band and wife on Valen­tine’s Day. Very sym­bol­ic, isn’t it?
  • An orig­i­nal pho­to shoot at a wed­ding in win­ter will not leave any­one indif­fer­ent. Hap­py new­ly­weds against the back­drop of sparkling snow — what could be more beau­ti­ful?

Now let’s say a few words about the short­com­ings:

  • some­what lim­it­ed pho­to oppor­tu­ni­ties. No one guar­an­tees that it will not sud­den­ly rain, and the whole beau­ti­ful win­ter fairy tale will not sud­den­ly turn into gray slush. And also the fair­ly frozen faces and hands of the new­ly­weds may not look very roman­tic;
  • the risk of catch­ing a cold or viral dis­ease increas­es, both by guests and by the bride and groom. There­fore, on the eve of mar­riage, you need to be extreme­ly atten­tive to your health;
  • in win­ter there is a less rich choice of veg­eta­bles and fruits than in sum­mer. But in the con­di­tions of a mod­ern metrop­o­lis, such a prob­lem ceas­es to be rel­e­vant.

Where to take wed­ding pho­tos in win­ter?

We will give you some tips on where you can take pic­tures at a wed­ding in win­ter.

  1. Win­ter for­est, botan­i­cal gar­den or frozen lake. This option is only suit­able if the win­ter is snowy enough, and the land­scape real­ly looks like a win­ter fairy tale. Where to take wedding photos in winterYou can also take some orig­i­nal pho­tos with hors­es in nature. If the tem­per­a­ture is above zero, then it is bet­ter to refuse a street pho­to ses­sion.
  2. Wood­en coun­try house. More­over, shoot­ing both inside and out­side the house.
  3. If you live in a city, and you don’t have time or oppor­tu­ni­ty to go to nature, then use the city advan­tages. For shoot­ing, you can go to any shop­ping and enter­tain­ment cen­ter, fur­ni­ture store or cloth­ing store. Go to the the­ater or even the cir­cus.

We hope that our tips will help you make your win­ter wed­ding the most fab­u­lous and mem­o­rable day of your life.
