Bad weather I do not fear you

Many summer weddings are ruined by sudden rains and locations completely to be reorganized because of bad weather; in winter the problem does not arise because you have already budgeted that it may rain. You can, therefore, arrange a cozy setting indoors and avoid the unpleasant feeling of a poolside refreshment magically distorted by the sudden summer rain. Winter weddings make you enjoy the details, like a Christmas tree decorated to your style or warm lighting that gives guests calm and elegance.

Enjoy the food

How many times have you associated the month of December with traditional banquets with friends and family. Imagine the same situation, but extended to your wedding on a grand scale, a riot of fun and food that will cheer not only the bride and groom but especially the guests, the latter particularly prone to eat a lot. Winter weather really helps to have a dialogue during the moments of pause, in summer we often take the opportunity to get away from the table out of boredom, in winter we are led to stay together and communicate more while having fun. This way you can engage with your guests and make them even happier to be there.

Unique honeymoon

Planning your honeymoon in winter allows you to take advantage of several benefits, one above all the cost. Although it may seem anachronistic, traveling in winter costs much less and in many cases even the most important hotels lower their prices considerably.

Originality is the keyword

A wedding is a unique event, but you may have noticed that in most cases the activities and events organized are almost always the same. This is because couples tend to follow a conventional path that makes them feel safe and guarantees a certain outcome. Organizing a traditional wedding, makes the same predictable and almost expected, a winter wedding instead is synonymous with originality and wonder. Imagine one of your guests reading the invitation or the wedding invitation, and taking note of the winter date, this alone would be enough to make the event unique and original. Gathering the people you love at Christmas time or on a specific day of the winter season, to which you are particularly attached, highlights your personality and great desire to differentiate from the traditional wedding.


If you're afraid to get married in the winter because of bad weather imagine how crazy it would be if it rained in the summer. The wedding in winter can be a resource to be valued, where you can enjoy the best day of your life in an original way and being able to count on a more streamlined and less suffocating organization.
