What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a winter wedding? Most likely, cold temperatures.
If you’re picturing freezing temps in your head and worried about how this will affect your wedding photography, consider leaving enough room in your budget for purchasing a warm shawl or cape for yourself and bridesmaids. If you do experience cold weather or inclement weather on your wedding day, this extra layer will be very much appreciated by your entire bridal party. Remember, wedding photos can last hours! Your comfort is a top priority.
Another accessory you may forget about are thick tights to keep your legs warm under your dress. I know, tights may be the last accessory you would pair with a wedding gown but if you are opting for a longer gown, no one will know you are wearing them. If you are comfortable wearing tights and they won’t bother you throughout the night, consider purchasing them at least for any outdoor activities.
Once everyone settles in from the cold, don’t forget to keep your guests warm by offering a warming beverage upon arrival. Consider making your signature drink something that will be warming to the heart, as this will set a nice tone as soon as your guests begin to arrive.
