Winter Wedding Advantages

Nov 26, 2022

So, your true love has popped the question, you’ve said ‘yes’ and you are excitedly proceeding with the planning. According to a real weddings study, in 2021 80% of couples got married from May – October. So, why not have a magical winter wedding when they offer so many advantages.

Wedding costs

Quite often you are likely to save around 25% on the venue fee for a winter wedding. These savings could allow you to afford a few extras such as that photographer of your dreams, a free bar for your guests or perhaps an extra luxurious honeymoon! Venues and suppliers may also be offering some amazing incentivised deals to choose a winter date, as we do here at Elms Barn.


Being out of peak season you are bound to find many more dates available, with venues and suppliers alike. With less competition from other couples planning their wedding at the same time you are more likely to be able to co-ordinate the A team to pull off the wedding you have always imagined in terms of venue and suppliers.

Guest Experience

During the summer months it’s often a busy time for people with lots of other events taking place including other people’s weddings, BBQs and holidays! How nice would it be to have a wonderful wedding to look forward to in the winter months. Less stress and more enthusiasm and energy for everyone to enjoy your special day.


Winter weddings have their own unique vibe and something you can really go to town with. There is something in the air at this time of year that’s just so magical and romantic… Deep rich palates of burgundy, glamourise golds, dark greens, black and navy.  Candles and fairy lights, pinecones, needles and winter berries.

How about mulled wine as your post ceremony drinks, a hot chocolate bar with marsh mellows, sumptuous warming winter food, sparklers or even a snow machine!

It won’t be long before you are falling in love with the idea of a winter wedding and not looking back on what a fabulous decision.
