The busiest time for the best wedding entertainment Surrey has to offer is undoubtedly in the spring and summer, however more and more brides and grooms are choosing to tackle the risks associated with a winter wedding to claim the perks that also come with it.
Once you get over the fact that you’ll definitely not be getting warm weather (you’re never guaranteed anyway) there are some pretty good things that can come from tying the knot in the winter months. Here are our tips for getting the most from a winter wedding.
If it’s freezing outside, you’ll need to pile on the accessories if you plan any of your day to happen outside (including photos). How about a vintage-inspired faux fur wrap or coat?
Be smart with your venue
The cold weather is the prompt for this one once again – a good winter wedding should consider having the ceremony and wedding breakfast in the same place – avoiding any possible difficulties travelling and meaning your guests don’t have to brave the cold too many times.
Book your entertainment early
There should be far less competition for our range of great singers and bands from other wedding party’s in the winter months, however, don’t forget, especially in December, it’s the party season and many will be snapped up for Christmas parties and other festive celebrations.
Should you have a Christmas wedding?
It might sound great on paper – but Christmas weddings come with a unique set of challenges. Any staffing costs may incur a surcharge at this time of year and it may be difficult for some of your guests to attend. If you’re having a small family ceremony, it may work great, but it’s hard to expect guests to cancel their plans around Christmas to attend a wedding.
