Having a winter wedding might not be everybody’s first choice, but for some it can be the perfect time of year to get married. The crisp mornings, winter sunshine and chill in the air can make for the most romantic occasion to say your vows and walk down the aisle.
Here are four things to consider if you’re planning a winter wedding…
Food for thought
Food is one of the most important elements of your wedding. If you get it right, people will be talking about the food they’re served at your big day for years to come.
From a three-course traditional wedding breakfast through to finger buffets and varied catering options which can be tailored to include seasonal produce and dishes, our catering packages are bespoke to your tastes and requirements.
Location, location, location
If your wedding is taking place in the colder months, the weather can be temperamental (especially in the Welsh Valleys), and although it’ll likely be taking place indoors or under cover, you need to consider the weather on your way to and from the wedding. You don’t want your wedding guests to be stranded by torrential downpours or even potentially snowed in!
Luckily, Heritage Park Hotel is the perfect venue for a winter wedding, with a beautiful wedding suite, on-site accommodation for the night before, day of the wedding and the wedding night. There are many options for your wedding party and guests to be comfortable without having to leave the hotel whether it’s an intimate affair or extravagant celebration!
Dress to impress
Whether your wedding style is minimalist or whimsical and romantic, there are so many variations you can incorporate into your wedding during the winter. You might even have more options when it comes to a winter wedding dress with accessories such as a fur shawl, hats, or gloves.
Think of the finer details
A winter wedding is a great option for those who want cosy vibes, elegant surroundings, and a general sense of cosiness. You can add warming and illuminating details such as strings of fairy lights, winter foliage, and earthy textures to tie your winter theme together. Our in-house wedding co-ordinators will help you plan each of the finer details to create your dream day that you’ll treasure forever.
Some extra thoughtful items you can add to your day include:
Cosy blankets for guests
A mulled wine or hot chocolate station for a classic cocktail alternative
Towers of champagne to top off your new year or black-tie event
