Why choose a Winter Wedding date

As far as the perfect venues for your wedding is concerned, the good news is that their diaries will not be as full as in the summer.

17th and 18th villas on lake shore, hotels and castles are beautiful in winter, they show beautiful panoramas and they are totally equipped for a reception in those parts of the year. They all have beautiful outdoor spaces for your wedding pictures. Snow can be as charming as flowers in the outdoor.

Moreover churches, hotels and venues will already be decorated for Christmas and this will add a touch of magic to your reception.

Rooms inside venues are perfectly warm illuminated and some have also a typical fire place.

Some good reason to choose a winter wedding could be:

  • You are more likely to be able to book the actual date you want to get married on and often the exact time of day too. Whether you want a traditional church wedding, registry office or even a civil ceremony in your favorite venue.
  • Your choice of wedding and reception venue widens, giving you many more options and interesting possibilities. The majority of villas and hotels are usually full to overflowing in summer.
  • Winter flowers bought locally can help you achieve the best price and secure guaranteed service and delivery on the day. The added benefit of the deep winter flower colors is that you can match your wedding color theme to your bouquet if you want to make more of an impact or individual statement.
  • What about your cake? You can choose delicious chocolate cakes and winter sweets for a typical Italian winter cakes tasting.
  • Most good local wedding photographers are booked up well in advance, with some running from one wedding to another in summer. Gain from this quieter period by securing the professional photographer you really want. Winter wedding photos can produce stunning images and having more time allows the photographer to indulge in their creativity.
