Make the most of your wedding with these incredible fall/winter planning tips:
The wedding season is upon us, and we are all excited. Whether you are embracing the foliage of fall or the stark serenity of winters, it is sure to be a unique experience. However, planning for these seasons can be challenging. At Cocomelody, we not only bring you stunning wedding dresses but also some essential tips for planning your fall/winter wedding smoothly.
BOOK A SCENIC VENUE
Fall/winter is the best time of the year to book a scenic spot. Booking a venue beforehand will keep you at ease and also wow your guests. But, find a venue with both indoor as well as an outdoor setting. Get dressed, complementing the climate, and also plan your photoshoot accordingly.
NOTIFY GUESTS EARLY ON
Fall/winter is a busy season, and it is a courtesy to give your guests advance time to plan for your wedding. Save-the-date is an excellent starting point for everyone to preparing for the wedding during the holiday season.
LOOK AFTER YOUR HEALTH
Who would want to sit with an upset stomach, dry/ cracking skin, or seasonal flu just before the wedding? You wouldn’t, right? So, look after yourself when planning a fall/winter wedding. Stay hydrated, eat well, and exercise – not only to fit into your fall/winter wedding attire but also to stay afresh during the festivities.
PLAN FOR THE WEATHER
Snow may be pretty, but snowstorms aren’t. The Winter breeze may be soothing, but winter chills are not. So, when planning a fall/winter wedding, be prepared for elements Mother Nature can bring. It means you must set your event’s agenda right. Always have a backup plan. Try to manage potential travel hazards for everyone, and prepare for other necessary winter wedding emergencies. The idea is to embrace the cooler temperature while ensuring everyone’s comfortable and enjoying.
SELECT A SUITABLE COLOR PALETTE
You can go neutral or with something bold and flashy – whatever suits your taste. But, choosing something that also matches the season can the mood of the party right. The traditional browns, oranges, and pastels are a staple for fall/winter weddings. But you can also try creamy earth tones, sapphires, emeralds, grays, silver, red, white, ivory, and taupe. You’ll find a spectacular variety; the task is to see what fits your vision as well as the season.
LAYER YOUR LOOK
No matter how pretty a strapless wedding dress may be, layer up your look and keep warm at your wedding. Wedding jackets and shrugs are excellent accessories, and long-sleeved dresses again do well for the big day. However, you can always speak to a stylist and discuss your options to style your attire elegantly and keep those goosebumps away.
Not to mention, there are some really fantastic menswear options too – don’t forget experimenting. Although black suits are winter staples, there are many other trendy fabrics and patterns that you can try. Also, carefully think through your wedding footwear – something comfy and winter-worthy will keep you going all day and night.
THINK ABOUT YOUR BRIDESMAIDS TOO
You do not want to suffocate yourself or freeze to cold at your fall/winter wedding, don’t you? Well, neither do the bridesmaid/groomsmen! When shopping for their attires, gift them cozy and comfortable accessories and dresses that will have them happily dancing at your wedding. Your wedding apparel is absolutely crucial, and so are the bridesmaid dresses. Choose wisely.
From fall/winter-appropriate lighting to floral and non-floral elements and eye-pleasing textures and colors, there are incredible ways to set the mood for your big day. Decide a style, theme, and feel that is unique, thoughtful, and personalized, pulling everything together for a unified look.
CUSTOMIZE THE MENU
Let the menu spread the fall/winter festivity spirit. Include both seasonal and traditional flavors and something you wouldn’t plan for summers. Have fun celebrating the season with flavorful and decadent foods and drinks.
Last but not least, enjoy the season. Don’t let any challenges stop you from appreciating your celebrations. Eliminate the stress and be the vibe setter. Feel your best, dress your best, show your best and enjoy yourself in the company of your loved ones.
