Insider Tips for Winter Weddings
Winter is a special time of the year to have a wedding, and there is much a winter wedding can offer – the wintery scenery creates the perfect backdrop for photos, and the cooler weather means you won’t be overheating in your wedding attire, and being a quieter time in the wedding calendar, you can usually make savings.
Here are some top tips from our experienced wedding team, about what to be aware of when planning a winter wedding.
- Provide blankets for guests.
If you’re planning an outdoor ceremony, offering blankets to your guests is an extra touch that can make all the difference. Place baskets with blankets next to chairs on the outside of the aisle, or strategically place them around during the cocktail hour and evening reception. Your guests will thank you.BOSC offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony options. Get in touch with our experienced events team to find out how we can make your winter wedding as special as you and your partner.
- Take advantage of indoor photo opportunities
As you’re getting married in the winter, you’ll likely want to limit the amount of time you spend outside. Be sure to take advantage of all the indoor photo opportunities available, and consider a ‘first look’ to make the best use of the light. Having said that, we’ve got a beautiful terrace and grounds, which provides a beautiful backdrop for outdoor photos too.The BOSC clubroom and grounds are excellent places for photos, and our experienced events team know all the right places to go to make sure you get the perfect shot.
- Offer guests a hot drink option at the drinks reception
Prosecco is a classic post-wedding beverage (and for good reason), but consider giving your guests something to warm up with after you tie the knot. Mulled wine and mulled cider are both excellent options, but feel free to experiment with other winter cocktails, such as a gingerbread martini.The BOSC catering team is one of a kind and will work with you to ensure that your special day goes off without a hitch. Talk to our chef and catering team about a different take on the traditional post-wedding beverage.
