5 Reasons Why A Winter Wedding Works

While summer is typically the favorite season for weddings, more and more couples are planning their wedding in winter. “A winter wedding!” you exclaim! It’s cold and miserable and nobody wants to travel in winter. Our 5 reasons why a winter wedding works will definitely change your mind!

Why choose a winter wedding?

1. Wedding Venue Availability

Wedding venues are chock-a-block full in the summer so booking your preferred date may not be possible. Instead of waiting a whole year why not opt for a winter wedding? With less competition you can choose the perfect date for your special day.

2. Great Winter Wedding Deals

Wedding venues naturally have extra capacity in the winter and often run some amazing winter wedding specials. Every penny you save on the wedding can be put towards your honeymoon!

3. Unique Colour Palette and Photos

Winter presents some amazing photograph opportunities and outfit options. Bright colors will really stand out against the grey winter skies and white snowy backgrounds, so be adventurous with your outfits and flowers. Choose bright colors like stunning reds and pinks to create amazing images.

4. All your favourite guests can attend

Instead of your favourite guests replying “Sorry, I’ll be on holiday on those dates” they are sure to RSVP “Yes!” Having a winter wedding means your special day won’t clash with summer time plans, meaning you can have everyone present as part of your wedding day and no-one misses out!

5. Winter Wedding –  Summer Honeymoon!

With a winter wedding you’ll have your pick of southern hemisphere honeymoon spots, all with beautiful summer weather included!

Many venues are now offering exclusive wedding packages for winter periods. In these packages they tailor the wedding to the season with chic colour palettes and more benefits. For more information about winter weddings and packages designed to suit you visit the Westmead Hotel winter weddings page.
