SAVE THE DATE: It might be the slow times for a lot of the wedding vendors, but it’s a busy season for a lot of people. Not only is it busy, but it is an expensive time of year with all the holiday shopping, vacations and people taking time off to enjoy the holidays. Your guests may have other commitments and you need to ensure you give them plenty of time & notice for the wedding. You can do this by sending save the date cards as early as 4-5 months prior to the big day.

COZY UP: Think of your guests and how you are going to keep them warm. Provide lots of options to keep your guests warm and comfortable especially during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Make sure you provide some wraps for guests to cover up, hot drinks for right after the ceremony and ask your venue if they provide heating items such as heat lamps, a fireplace area or even heated floors.
WEDDING TIMELINES: Unlike a summer wedding, during winter it gets dark pretty quickly. You need to consider how your day will play out when creating a time line. Photo opportunity is very limited during winter. Give yourself plenty of time for this. Because it gets dark pretty fast, lighting is very important. Ensure you have lots of lights around your venue for photo purposes.
