It is true that wedding in Greece mainly happen during Spring, Summer and the first months of Fall. Recently more and more couples decide to get married during winter and especially around Christmas time, since is such a festive period of the year. And we are thrilled that they do that since we absolutely adore winter weddings! To help you plan your winter wedding we made a list of Dos and Don’ts of winter weddings. Just to give you a hand of help.
Don’t be afraid to choose a colorful wedding palette. The fact that red and white might seem like the right choice for this time of the year don’t hesitate to choose different colors. Think a playful fuchsia, a warm lime or an impressive mango-orange.
DO! Create a warm atmosphere for your guests and don’t let them get cold. Even at the church make sure there are small heaters for those waiting outside for you to come. As for the reception, a great idea is to create small corners of warmth, either with a fireplace or heaters.
Don’t overdo it! We said to warm them, not put them on fire. Imagine that there will be dance, food and lots of drinks and they will be already warm enough. If you overheat the room probably they won’t make it to the end of the night!
DO! Be extra kind with the guests that honored you with their presence to your holiday wedding. Don’t forget that Christmas season is a family holiday and probably they have left aside other family traditions to be with you on your special day. Beside the wedding favors you might want to offer them a more personal gift, like a lucky charm for the new year ahead.
Don’t let them outside at the cold to wish you for your wedding. First of all, we do not support talking to everyone at the church before the reception. So if you want or do it (okay we know it is a tradition) do it somewhere warm. For example, at your reception. Or pass by the tables during the party or make sure you arrive first at the reception and welcome all of them s they arrive. Okay that’s an amazing idea that no one will expect!
