Have you considered having a winter wedding?

Recommended Posts

 

We here at BDW love a good beach wedding, and itâ€s certainly what most people think of when they picture a destination wedding, but thereâ€s something to be said about a gorgeous winter setting. Right now is the perfect time of year for a winter wedding getaway and we thought weâ€d share our picks for the top 5 winter wedding destinations. If your dream wedding involves more snow than sand, follow along for some ideas on where to go!

I actually considered "snowy" wedding. My FH and I do ski, so I was picturing something in Alps - France or Austria. The ceremony at the peak with amazing view and then something cozy in the evening with the fireplace (or fire outside!) for the reception. There were several show stoppers for me though:

- the cold - I am a sun loving being and I feel more comfortable at +35C than at -35C. Of course you'd rarely have a really cold weather in the Alps, but still I prefer warm beach to winter mountains.

- the dress - that partially comes from the cold. I just don't see myself in (any) wedding dress in winter. I don't even wear causal skirts in winter, and wool sweaters are my best friends in cold weather, so to compromise a nice wedding dress for an astonishing view wasn't in my plans.

- the price - clearly Alps are more expensive than many southern destinations.

 

Maybe we should consider it for the vows renewal? ;)

I want to do most of these things just for fun on vacation! Always wanted to go to an ice hotel and on an Alaskan cruise, and now I have to go on an alpine slide or my life won't be complete! Haha.

Great article, Alexis! 

 

One other location that pops to my mind in addition to the ones that you suggested is the Ahwanee Hotel in Yosemite. I've never stayed there, but I've stopped there many times over the years to eat lunch, grab a drink or shop at their amazing hotel store. I heard it's also a popular wedding spot - for the summer time, they have a wedding lawn in the back of the hotel. There's also a super small wooden chapel in Yosemite Valley, very close to the hotel, where you can officiate the wedding. I'm doing a lot of free advertising for this place, but I'm seriously in love with it. It has so much character, the architecture is absolutely stunning and it's also super charming and romantic. I've honestly considered getting married there. In winter time, it gets even more magical, as it's surrounded by towering peaks covered in snow. Here are some photos:

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
