Romantic Winter Weddings

There is no doubt that choosing a beautiful Winter Wedding is the cheaper option, with potential money to be saved on wedding venue hire and also guest accommodation, honeymoon bookings out of peak season, and the potential to exploit decorations already in place in your chosen wedding venue around the Christmas festive season!
Quite possibly you have dreamed of a romantic winter wedding full of snow, but if you live in many areas of the world, you know that no matter what date in the winter you schedule your wedding for, Mother Nature cannot guarantee that it will be a white wedding. However, there are many places in the world in which you can travel to for a snow filled winter wedding day. Destination weddings aren’t only reserved for tropical locations and warmer climates – you could have a destination winter wedding too.

Winter weddings abroad – Winter weddings in France

If you would like to say within Europe, there are plenty of ski and snow resort destinations and lodges. Most of them have wedding packages, group rates for your guests, and can “guarantee” snow for your big wedding day – even if it is man-made. Imagine how fun and romantic it could be to have your wedding reception in a log cabin setting, or in a luxurious French Castle with a roaring fire going, sipping French champagne, red wine or hot apple cider. After your romantic wedding your guests can enjoy skiing, snow tubing, snowboarding, ice skating or sleigh riding. Castle weddings and château weddings are becoming more and more popular – both spring weddings, summer weddings, autumn weddings and winter weddings. Now a days brides and grooms want to create their own individual wedding or unusual wedding.
You can look for resorts in countries such Norway, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Italy and France which is one of the preferred wedding destination, partly because of the magnificent French cuisine. Here you will find beautiful Castles to get married in – often they have their own church where the priest conduct the religious ceremony.

Winter wedding dress

Winter weddings can be elegant and a spectacle that can bring you on a high note into the thoughts of spring. There are snow covered trees and beautiful scenery that can be incorporated into the winter wedding pictures, which can compliment one of the most important parts of the wedding – the stunning wedding dress and the wedding bouquet.

Beautiful winter wedding dresses & beautiful bridal gowns

Unique winter weddings also allow for the opportunity to be a bit different for both the bride and groom, on aspects like unique wedding dresses and wedding reception ideas. Cold weather means romantic log fires in a English Castle or a French Castle, warming up in four poster beds and such like!! You will love it.
Choosing fabulous winter wedding dresses does not have to be difficult. Usually, a thicker and luxurious wedding fabric will be used to create the dress, as opposed to the airy and light fabrics that are used through summer weddings. Velvet is a favourite fabric of designers wishing to create a winter wedding dress that can bring attention to the bride to be on her wedding day.

There are also many unique wedding accessories that can be chosen to complement the magnificent winter wedding dresses that are chosen through the wedding ceremony. Luxurious wedding shoes and fur lined capes can be used to keep warm throughout the cold season and allow you to have a luxurious and fairy tale-feel to the wedding pictures.

When choosing a winter wedding dress, keep in mind the following aspects – the winter wedding dress should convey the theme of the wedding and keep with the season. Therefore, luxurious trimmings and embellishments are a great way to create unique features within your winter wedding dress.

Unique Winter Wedding Ideas

Of course, if you are planning a luxury winter wedding near or far, do not forget to give your guests a winter wedding favor to commemorate your beautiful winter wedding. Some great ideas are snowflake bottle openers, snow globes, hot coca packets, picture frames, or crystal glasses or other crystal items. These will all be appreciated by your guests to remember such a wonderful wedding event.

Save money on your wedding budget

2010 has gone and we are looking forward to see what 2011 will bring! With any luck the New Year will usher in a decade of economic recovery where Brides and Grooms can plan a wedding without all the stress of worrying about whether they can afford this or that or have to pick and choose what they can spend the money on. If 2010 has taught us anything it would have to be how to live with luxury Champaign taste on a beer income without having to forgo any of the amenities. Nevertheless there are ways to shave some wedding expenses and still have the wedding day of your dreams.

One way future brides can make her bridal accessories more affordable without having to give up that element of elegance is using hair combs, barrettes and hair pins instead of the long veil or the elaborate headpiece. You can find hair combs, barrettes and hair pins that are elegantly designed and can be worn again after the romantic wedding for other special occasions.

Exclusive wedding locations

You can cut some wedding costs by having a smaller wedding abroad. For a traditional wedding in the UK most brides and Grooms invites 100 or more weddings guests of which they don´t have daily, weekly or monthly contact with most of the wedding guests – but it is a wedding tradition that more or less everybody has to be invited. Just imagine how much you will save on your wedding by informing your family and friends that you want to get married abroad and you can´t afford to invite everybody. They will understand – and you will save a small fortune and on the other hand, you will only have the wedding attendance you really care about! In addition you may have a destination wedding in a French Castle as Château Hattonchâtel, an idyllic wedding in a Danish Manor House as Skrøbelev Gods or a sunny beach wedding, gazebo wedding at Ritz Resorts in Tenerife, Spain.

Wedding flowers

Another way brides can save some money on their dream wedding is silk flowers – it does not have to be French red roses. The cost of real flowers for unique wedding bouquets and wedding decorations can be astronomical. Silk flower arrangements are beautifully arranged and will last a lifetime. Not only will silk flowers look like real flowers but they can be used again afterwards for home décor as well as make a wonderful keepsake for the Mothers of the Bride and Groom and all the bridal attendants.

Wedding Reception costs for your stunning wedding can really mount up when it is all said and done. There is the food, the decorations, the wedding cake, the alcohol (if you decide to have any) and the music. Now one way to save some money on the wedding music is to have a DJ instead of a live band. With a DJ you get to play the music you want and not just what the band knows how to play. With a DJ you can play music all night long vs. a band who takes breaks after each set and will usually only play for a couple of hours unless you want to pay them more. With regard to alcohol (if you decide to have any) you may want to consider a cash bar. Or you can also decide to serve alcohol for just a couple of hours say at meal time. Either way is acceptable and can really save on the expenses.

Free wedding planner

There is no doubt about it that destination weddings can be costly if you chose the wrong wedding place in UK  – however the wedding location is very important. But by incorporating some of these wedding tips in your wedding planning will help to eliminate some of the wedding expenses. In today’s economy saving just a little bit helps.
If the hotel, inn or castle you have chosen for your wedding have a wedding planner – use the wedding organizer as much as possible, because they have the experience and the local knowledge. The above mentioned hotels all have free wedding planners for the bride to be.
