Get ready to plan the coolest wedding ever, and throw the wedding of a lifetime in the winter months. Our ideas below can help you get started and well on your way to a winter wedding venue that will make all of your dreams come true.

Go For the Traditional Venue

You can throw a sweet winter wedding in a traditional little white chapel or brick church. Traditional venues look exquisite with winter wedding decor, and on the off chance you picked a venue that ends up with snow falling on your wedding day, the photography will be romantic and unique.

Go High Upon That Mountain

Check out cabins and rustic mountain retreats for a gorgeous winter wedding venue. Again, these come with scenery that will serve as one killer wedding photography backdrop without the need for much adornment. When it comes to booking this style venue, look into holding onto your cabin for a few days after the wedding and send the wedding party home. It will become an instant romantic honeymoon, especially since the cabin probably includes a hot tub and champagne.

 

Try a Romantic Retreat

Another super-romantic retreat for winter wedding venues includes lake districts. From New York to Michigan, Nova Scotia to California, Italy to Arizona, there are a lot of great places to look for killer lakeside wedding venue destinations. Whether you’re looking for a place that has a cooler or drier climate, lakes in these areas will make for winter wedding memories to last a lifetime.

Remember the Details

So much of what makes a wedding memorable are the little details, so make sure you take that into account before settling on your venue. If you want to hand out cheap wedding sparklers, for instance, make sure your venue allows them. If you book your venue before you’re certain that you can do all the activities you have planned, you may lose your deposit or be required to pay for part of the event anyways!

Get Frozen

If you want a truly unique winter wedding experience, check out ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. Every year the ICEHOTEL opens its church doors from December to April and talk about one epic winter wedding. No decor is needed; you and your wedding party can throw a quick ceremony in the cool chapel then head into the resort hotel for one killer dinner/reception.
