All I Want For Christmas… Is You!

Ahh December: you conjure up many images: Christmas; presents; eating too much…. Weddings? The latter, perhaps not so much but that’s all starting to change as many couples are reaping the benefits from tying the knot at Yuletide.
Yes, we do live in the UK so positive thoughts for fair weather are usually in vain. Like festivals, it’s more of a lottery in this country. But with the summer solstice and turning the clocks back comes brighter, clearer days with the lowering of the sun’s position. Just remember to pack your shades!
Many venues will offer excellent details come the winter months and, not only that, but there’ll be more availability. Wedding accommodation will also be cheaper in comparison to the summer months which means more cash in your guests’ pockets, equating to happier guests!
Work red into your bouquet to give it that festive touch or simply opt for warm, late blooms to bring the look to life… Gerberas, roses and hydrangeas are all good winter options.
Winter wedding photographs can look really magical, especially if you are lucky with the weather. There’s something really romantic about shooting your wedding pictures on a cold, crisp day before going back into the warm to join in with the conviviality.
Suited and Booted
You’ll have a chance to wear more layers – meaning more accessories. Winter stoles or capes add elegance and connote 1950s film-star glamour.
The groom and best man can wear waist coasts plus suits and not be roasting: tweed and woollen suits are great options for winter months, as is a heavier shoe.
You can enjoy thinking up a sophisticated winter menu: either get away from Christmas entirely with cuisine that’s fresh and light or combine elements of the traditional roast into your meal. Serve your guests mulled wine or mulled cider on arrival.
Christmas is a magical time and whether you’re a fan the festive period or not, people are in the mood to party at this time of year. Fairy lights and favours will transform your venue in to the most inviting space. Deck the halls with clear lights to make your venue look even classier.
How could we forget the honeymoon? Winter breaks guarantee money-saving deals so you and your beloved can jet off for some winter sun in an exotic location. You’ll be sipping cocktails on a beach reminiscing about your wedding day. And what could be better than that?!
Have a wonderful Christmas from all the staff here at High Barn.
