Destination weddings are fun, especially when you realize that you have a freedom to get married in any season without being stuck by the ‘extreme weather’ factor. When you can pick wedding dates for summer and spring weddings, why not think about getting married in winter season? It is even more fun and romantic! Especially, if you are tying the knot in locations such as Skardu, Swat or even far away like Sweden. No matter what location you are dreaming of, within your own country or abroad, you have to consider how can you pick a location that turns your dreams into reality. So, consider the following points for your winter destination wedding.
First things first. Your vision for your winter wedding is what counts a lot. Whether you want a snowcapped mountain as a backdrop, want your guests to enjoy a day skiing, or take a ride in a sleigh watching northern lights. You have to consider the vibe of your big day before you finalize a destination.
A winter wedding means a snowy winter-wonderland on your big day. Talking about getting married abroad, the Northern hemisphere suits you best during December to March. During this time, usually, this region receives heavy snowfall. So, yes, you can think about it! Caution: Don’t forget to check weather and temperature of different destinations for the winter season. For a snowy, but not sub-freezing temperature, few destinations offer perfect weather in March.
No matter how different you want your wedding to be, if your winter wedding spot is difficult to reach, you will cause trouble for everyone including yourself which can ultimately ruin the joy. It is better to do some research and find out if there are direct flights from your nearby airport? Are there daily flights or is there any schedule that you can follow? This is necessary when it comes to an international destination.
As everything you plan will depend upon your budget, so it is better to determine the cost of your wedding in the chosen destination. You can join online forums and ask couples for their advice and share their experiences. The cost also includes the availability of vendors, the prices of travel and accommodation, especially during tourist season or holidays.
Since winter season can make planning difficult, it is important to decide early that whether you need a wedding planner or coordinator or you can contact the vendors yourself. Also consider a situation that if you don’t know a destination and vendors too well, how would you bargain and agree to the right prices charged by the vendors.
