7 Reasons to Have a Winter Wedding

1.    No False Expectations
2.    It’s not too hot!
3.    More Vendor Availability
4.    Discounts
5.    Sooner Availabilities
6.    Tropical Holidays
7.    The Ambience

1.    No False Expectations

I knew a couple who decided to get married in December. They were months clear of rainy weather, right? The couple thought so too, until it poured on their outdoor garden wedding. Here at Quarry Farm, we have indoor and outdoor ceremony options to cover both bases. The whole place is yours, so closer to the date you can decide which ceremony option will best suit the weather for that day.

2.    It’s not too hot!

Nothing kills the romance of a wedding like standing under the sweltering hot sun outdoors, or inside a crowded muggy room.  For the bridal party, the only thing worse is suffering that with heavy make-up, sweating in a dress or suit and fanning your way through what is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. Spring and autumn still see some warm days just this side of comfortable; winter guarantees you cooler temperatures, making a more enjoyable experience for you and your guests.

3.    More Vendor Availability

So you’ve done your research and you’ve found a dream florist, a make-up artist who makes you look like a Disney princess and a photographer who can turn a selfie into a work of art. The problem? You can’t manage to get all three of them on the same day. Vendors have fewer bookings during the winter months so in all likeliness you will find a date that suits everyone!

4.    Discounts

All of the above at a discounted rate? Even better! A lot of vendors offer discounts during the quieter wedding season. That means more of your dream wedding for a lower price tag. Score!

5.    Sooner Availabilities

He’s popped the question, and you’ve said yes! You’ve found your dream location… and during prime time, it’s booked out for the next three years. If you’re willing to marry in winter, venues and vendors are more likely to be available during winter months, meaning you can get married in six months instead of waiting a year or two. Even if you do want to wait a little longer to tie the knot, you’ll have more flexibility in choosing dates across the quieter winter period.

6.    Tropical Holidays

If you’re planning a honeymoon north of the equator, your winter wedding will line up perfectly! Think gorgeous Parisian summers or relaxing in crystal blue waters in Hawaii. The possibilities are endless.

7.    The Ambience

Imagine the fire roaring in the fireplace, an antique glow from the soft warm lighting under the timber lined ceiling in the Homestead as you and your guests enjoy hearty warm food and a glass of red. It doesn’t get better than that!
