Beautiful Winter Weddingsweddings
Winter can be a very romantic time of year. Rosy cheeks, cold kisses, snowfall… cozying up to the one you love. Imagine all of that on your wedding day! Include different creative components like a hot cocoa bar, blankets available for your guests, and a roaring fireplace. Candles will produce a sense of warmth and romance. And brides always look gorgeous in a nice faux fur coat matching perfectly to their white gown.
Winter weddings are growing more and more popular due to price, ambiance and color schemes. Colder weddings are even trending with celebrities! Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth just tied the knot this winter with a gorgeous affair. Along with Miley & Liam, more A-listers that wed this winter are Mandy Moore & Taylor Goldsmith, Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas and lastly Meghan Trainor & Sky Kids actor, Daryl Sabara.
There are so many benefits to winter weddings including reduced pricing. In the wedding world, winter is considered a slower season, therefore, pricing is lower! (best kept secret in town!) Wedding vendors also have lower pricing during the colder months and will most likely be able to be a bit more flexible with your budget. And there may be much less competition for your preferred wedding date!
Another cost advantage is that you may also be able to reduce your decorating costs if you select a venue with holiday décor that can be a backdrop for some amazing wedding photos.
From the point of view of your guests, a winter wedding can also provide a more comfortable experience for those who do not like wearing formal attire in the heat of summer. Plus, hairstyles and makeup (for both the bride and guests) tend to remain beautiful in winter weather because of the lack of humidity.
If you have a strict budget for your wedding day, but have champagne taste, you may want to consider the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ for your winter wedding! The intimate setting of the stone courtyard can help set the perfect backdrop for your winter wonderland wedding.
There are also multiple options for your ceremony, inside or out, just in case of inclement weather. The courtyard lights at the Inn enhance snowfall and make for a magical photo opportunity. The festoon lights overhead simulate a starry night every night. If it does not snow on your wedding day, consider renting a snow machine to help create some breathtaking photos. Plus, the Olde Mill Inn features customized holiday décor throughout the property starting in late November.
Another benefit of having your wedding at the Olde Mill Inn is the availability of hotel rooms on site. This helps wedding guests all year round, but during the winter is when the rooms are appreciated most. Less travel means less stress, especially when there is snow on the ground. Celebrating and enjoying the day should be your priority on your wedding day, rather concerns about travel for both yourself and your guests.
