Four reasons why you should have a winter wedding


Although not as common as the traditional summer wedding, we think that winter weddings can be incredibly magical and provide for a special day with wonderful memories to take away forever. If you need a little more convincing that a winter wedding is right for you, we’ve created a list of reasons why winter is the perfect season for a wedding at Athelhampton House:

Chances of snow
In the frosty winter months, they may be a chance of your wedding being blessed by the fall of sparkling snow, decorating your wedding pictures with its glistening winter magic. Throughout this post you can see examples of weddings at Athelhampton that have been carpeted with snow, with truly beautiful results.

It saves you money
Due to a lower demand, use of a wedding venue in winter is significantly cheaper than in the months June-September. The lower demand also means that there is often more availability, so that you can choose the perfect winter wedding date without the long waiting list. Saving money on the venue also means that you can spend that money on the finer details of your wedding to make it a truly perfect occasion for you both.

The weather is not so important
With a summer wedding, you often have to plan for all eventualities, hoping that the rain will stay clear of your special day. In the winter months, the weather is not expected to be perfect (though there is always hope for a snowfall!), however, the ceremony can be planned better to suit rainy weather as it is the normal, expected weather, and your guests will be better prepared too.

It will be the highlight of the season
Christmas parties aside, your guests won’t often have a lot of social occasions pencilled into their calendar during the winter, as opposed to the summer, and, with a winter wedding being so different to a traditional summer one, your wedding day will be bound to remain in the memories of your guests for years to come.
