Planning a wedding this season? Check out these Winter Wedding Do’s and Don’ts!

Read these Winter Wedding Do’s and Don’ts and avoid a wedding disaster.

Winter Wedding Do's and Don'ts

Even though the weather may be cold, winter weddings are becoming a hot trend. Avoid a wedding disaster and read up on these Winter Wedding Do’s and Don’ts.

With the help of TheKnot.com, we’ve compiled a Winter Wedding Checklist:

Winter Wedding Tip #1: Create a cozy reception but make sure it’s not too hot. When planning a winter wedding, including candles, pillows and throws in the room will create a more inviting space and allow your guests to feel comfy in the frigid winter months. Keep in mind that your guests will be dancing so make sure the room isn’t too hot and if possible, keep the temperature a few degrees lower on the dance floor.

Winter Wedding Tip #2: Keep your bridesmaids stylish yet warm. TheKnot.com agrees, it’s okay to choose any fabric you’d like when shopping for bridesmaids’ dresses in the winter just keep in mind that you don’t want them to freeze. Consider adding a pashmina or fur shawl to their outfit.

Winter Wedding Tip #3: Be kind to your guests but don’t leave them out in the cold. If you are looking for creative guest favors for your winter wedding, consider personalized ornaments or hot cocoa mix or cookie mix. Remember, it will most likely be chilly so plan ahead and hold your receiving line indoors.

For more winter wedding inspiration, visit the Do's and Don'ts of Winter Weddings on TheKnot.com.

If you are planning a winter wedding in NJ, we invite you to celebrate your wedding at the Wilshire Grand Hotel, NJ. Our wedding venue is located in West Orange, NJ.
