5 Reasons To Have A Seasonal Wedding

Welcome back to Now and Forever Love! This week’s inspiration was inspired by our love for winter weddings (although in sunny Southern California, it’s hard to tell the difference between summer and well…every other season). No matter where you are in the world, it’s completely possible and absolutely beautiful if you decide to have a destination or themed wedding to fulfill your seasonal wedding dreams.

If you still need more convincing, here’s our top five reasons to have a seasonal wedding.

Ready? Let’s go!

The popular wedding season by far is summer, meaning that vendors are raising their prices due to high demand. Having a winter wedding will afford you the opportunity of getting first pick of the best vendors, including venues! Click the image above or here to see our winter wedding in Idyllwild, California!

In every day life, it’s a bit more fun during the colder months to play around with your fashion choices. You can layer, “sweater weather”, you get what we mean. The same goes for your wedding dress! You can wear lacy sleeves, thick shawls, snowflake jewelry, the list goes on. You can also get creative with the Groom’s tux and wedding party’s looks as well!

Think of all the wonderful, comforting, and hearty foods you love during the colder months. Having a winter wedding means that it’s only fitting to have these same comfort foods at your wedding! Think hot cocoa, pot roast, roasted root vegetables, and apple cider.

Winter weddings offer much better lighting, so your wedding photos are going to look spectacular! We know it seems like sunny wedding offer favorable lighting, but the slight “overcast” is the perfect day time lighting that will capture your perfect day beautifully.
