Although most couples opt to say, “I do,” throughout the summer and fall months, there is nothing quite as ethereal and romantic as a winter wedding. And what could be better than escaping the cold with your spouse on a tropical island honeymoon? For recently engaged couples interested in planning a winter wedding, here are some great reasons why:

The Gorgeous Scenery

There are few things more beautiful than a fresh palette of snow on a winter morning and here in Buffalo there is usually plenty of snow throughout the winter season. While traveling to and from your destinations may be a bit chilly, the breathtaking view of a bride surrounded by winter white is sure to make up for the cold temperatures. Many venues are already decorated in shades of red, green and gold throughout the holiday months, adding a festive and cozy feeling to your special day. If you are a fan of all things winter related, then a winter wedding is the perfect backdrop as you and your spouse start the next chapter of your life.

Plenty of Dates to Chose From

One of the trickiest parts of planning your wedding is choosing a date. If it seems like your entire group of friends got engaged at the same time, it may seem like everyone is battling for weekends in the summer and fall. Instead of being one of many weddings throughout the season, make your big day a unique event that your guests will remember fondly. There are so many interesting options to consider when planning a winter wedding, from a dessert buffet of cookies and hot chocolate to ornaments as favors. Most likely, you will have an easier time booking the venue you love during the off-season, possibly at a better price! Skip the rush of the summer wedding season and choose whatever day you please throughout the snowy winter months. Just remember to steer clear of the major holidays or give your guests some extra notice if your nuptials will be held close to Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

The Honeymoon

There is nothing better than escaping Buffalo for a week or two during the winter months, especially to celebrate your marriage! We love the idea of enjoying a beautiful winter wedding, then heading off to soak up the sun on a warm honeymoon vacation. After months of planning and preparing for your big day, there couldn’t be anything better than a midwinter escape to somewhere tropical.
