Winter Wedding Inspo

Winter attire

You always hear people say they love winter clothes, right? Well, the possibilities for your wedding couture are beyond what most would think. Long sleeve dresses are sophisticated and flattering, while adding a little drama to your look. That’s why many celebs have chosen to wear one. Some brides even wear a faux-fur shawl in the really cold climates.


Tying in with the attire, winter weddings are wonderful because women won’t have makeup melting off their faces! Meanwhile men can enjoy wearing a suit without sweating right through it. Everyone can dance the day or night away in comfort. Cooler temps are just more practical for everyone.

In winter, you’ve got two options. Dark and stormy or soft glow. The lighting in winter tends to be softer, which makes for stunning photos. There is a golden hour for photos and in winter, it’s around 4.30 to 5.30pm.

Winter flowers

Winter has some amazing flowers you just won’t find in summer. The shades and shapes are ideal for a special celebration in winter. Think tulips, dahlias, poppies, hellebores, and sweetpeas. All are fantastic for bouquets, centrepieces, or lapel pins.

A heartwarming menu

If you’re thinking ‘chicken or fish’, think again. A winter wedding opens up your menu possibilities. Your guests will love being able to dine on smoked and roasted meats, baked potatoes, hot soup, and warm desserts.

Off-peak costs

A winter wedding, no matter how popular it has become, is still less common than a summer one. Which means you get to take advantage of lower costs. Be it the venue, catering, makeup/hair styling, or transport, you’re likely to be able to negotiate the price. An even bigger bonus is a honeymoon during off-peak dates.

There is just something special about a wintery wedding. Be sure to check out the Melbourne Bridal Expos online directory and expo calendar for hundreds of wedding resources right at your fingertips.
