Be open to rescheduling or planning a winter wedding during these uncertain times
The COVID-19 Pandemic is affecting lives everywhere. If your wedding has been impacted by this pandemic, you may find yourself being forced to change or reschedule your wedding plans – and the heartache that comes with that is real. But we’re here to tell you, you have options.
The bottom line, 2020 weddings are rescheduling in 2021 and that means dates are filling up fast, really fast. On top of not being able get married on your original date, you may not even be able to get married in the summer months or on a Saturday because certain dates are already sold out. So, now what? This is a good time to consider planning a winter wedding.
Temperatures will dropping, snow will be falling and for you, wedding bells could be ringing! Planning during this time of year can cut back on a lot of stress during already uncertain times. Here are some of things we LOVE about winter weddings.
A Secure Wedding Date
Only 5 percent of weddings take place during winter months; January, February and March. What does that mean for you? AVAILABILITY! You won’t have to stress about rescheduling your wedding during an already busy time of year – but can feel confident your venues and vendor will likely be more available to you. On top of that, many venues and vendors offer discounted prices during these off peak dates — BONUS!
Looking for even more wedding date security? Consider having a Friday or Sunday wedding.
Winter weddings are often smaller, more intimate affairs.
Weather can be unpredictable during the winter months, something we know all too well. That means not everyone may feel comfortable traveling during potentially snowy and icy conditions. Also, if your wedding is closer to the holidays, family functions & traditions may limit the amount of people who can attend. This may be a good opportunity to trim back your guest list.

If you don’t think a winter wedding is for you, we have a feeling you may change your mind after checking out the gallery below. A winter wedding doesn’t mean you’re limited to indoor photos. Embrace the outdoors – especially in Michigan! Falling snowflakes, snow-dusted trees, and wintry details set a picturesque scene unlike any other, plus you can use the cold weather as an excuse to snuggle with your new spouse.
It’s also important to pack accordingly—you might want a shawl to cover up in between shots or an old pair of shoes to throw on if you’re walking on snowy ground. READ MORE: 6 Ways to Protect Your Flowers & Get Perfect Photos at Your Winter Wedding
