If you are set on hosting a winter wedding, then take a look at these easy tips for keeping your guests comfortable and warm on these cold winter days and nights in Northern Virginia.
1. Keep Your Guests Warm. For an outdoor ceremony, provide blankets or your guests laps and some inexpensive mittens and scarves. If you know ahead of time that you want a winter wedding, you can probably pick up these items at a great price at the end of the season! Keep an extra set aside for your bridal party to wear during outdoor photo sessions.
3. Portable Heaters. Hosting an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour? Placing portable heaters around are a fast and easy way to provide comfortable heat for your guests!
4. Spice Up the Menu. While it may be easy to gravitate to the typical winter comfort foods or holiday menus, consider an ethnic menu that infuses spices to provide heat such as Asian, Indian or Mexican cuisines.
2. Offer Hot Seasonal Beverages. Hot chocolate bars are so popular with winter events and are such a fun and easy way to incorporate your theme. Of course, there is always coffee which is a crowd favorite and to make it more “adult” you can always have a bartender available to spike those drinks! For something even more festive, add warm spiced cider!
Keeping your guests comfort top of mind when planning your wedding will ensure that everyone has a great time. You will know that you got the winter wedding of your dreams and your guests are cozy and warm enough to celebrate with you.
