Winter Wedding Wonderland
There are a lot of Brides that will decide to have a longer engagement in order to avoid a winter wedding. Perhaps they have always had their heart set on that spring wedding, but I would bet they may only be seeing winter as the wet, cold, gray, and maybe a little sad, season. But there really is something magical about winter. Try and think about the first time you saw snow. If you grew up with snow, you might not be able to pin point it, but the feeling people get as they watch the soft snowflakes dance down and kiss their lashes and cheeks, is truly unforgettable.
Winter is the time of year that forces you to realize how much love you have. We often describe love as a feeling of warmth we have inside our chest, a feeling of renewed exhilaration, and even a childlike giddiness. The cold of winter let’s you feel that warmth in your heart. As you cuddle with your special someone watching the snow or rain fall, the warmth between you can feel like it seals you together. Winter is a time that people (and your guests!) will come closer together.
In winter, the air becomes crisp, giving you the physical manifestation of what exhilaration feels like. As you drink in that crisp winter air, it feels your lungs with a feeling of a fresh start. Despite the fact that the flowers are closing up and the leaves have fallen, that winter air gives the feelings of the beginnings of something new because underneath those past blossoms is the rumblings of new roses. This is just like how as your single life comes to a close, your new adventure as a married couple begins.
For brides that think of winter as a sad time of year, don’t forget about the child-like joy it inspires. There are snowball fights, sledding, hot coco, snowman building, and the building excitement of Christmas day. This can inspire your wedding to be light and playful, and full of a joy that is pure.
Winter could be said to be the most romantic and love inspiring season of the year!
