Specialists in how to hire a marquee, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex-based County Marquees East Anglia, have put together a few other reasons why a winter wedding under the stars could be the perfect option for you. Enjoy!
Winter wedding themes
This is where you can really go to town and let your imagination run wild! A winter wedding allows for endless winter themes to be incorporated into your wedding, especially for the marquee decoration itself! Think winter wonderland, with rustic tables covered in white glittery linen, table decorations made from holly, white painted trees with fairy lights dangling in the bare branches, fake snow on the floor, and a fire pit at each end of the marquee…the possibilities are endless! You can tie your bridal and bridesmaid’s dresses into a winter theme with a colour palette of whites and greys, with silver accessories… a la Queen Elsa from Frozen! When offset against a transparent marquee these types of themes create a truly beautiful and original setting, one that will live long in the memory of all of those lucky enough to be invited to share in your big day.
One of the disadvantages of a summer wedding is any food left out will quickly come to the attention of our little flying friends, and the heat will also affect certain foods that are not eaten immediately. Most summer weddings opt for lighter options, as who wants to have a heavy meal in high temperatures? With a winter wedding, you can have many more options for your wedding breakfast. Offer your guests more hearty fayre than they would get at a summer wedding, a hot bowl of venison stew with crusty bread, or beef wellington with all the trimmings? Whatever your favourite winter foods are, they are bound to be a hit with your guests on a cold winter’s day!
Typically, a summer wedding means there is light until well into the evening. Not so with a winter wedding, where the sun goes down well before dinner time. This is actually a benefit of a winter wedding, as this allows you to illuminate your marquee (and the exterior areas), making for a stunning scene! Fairy lights dangling from the ceiling of the marquee, lamps on the tables, and lighted walkways to and from the marquee make for an incredibly romantic and intimate atmosphere, something that would be wasted in the summertime! As experts in how to hire a marquee, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex marquee specialists, County Marquees East Anglia, have many different lighting options that would make your marquee hire look amazing.
Everything is typically more cost-effective!
Aside from all of the above benefits of having a winter wedding, did you know that by having a winter wedding you could well save a lot more money as typically wedding venues and wedding suppliers charge significantly less during the winter months? So not only could you have the wedding of your dreams, it will cost less than if you had it in the summer! So if you are going to have a wedding and hire a marquee, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex-based County Marquees East Anglia suggest having an amazing winter wedding under the stars, more memorable, and more cost-effective!
