Five reasons why winter weddings are always winners
For most island venues, wedding season has come to an end. But here at the Pomme we help couples get hitched all year round. If you've never considered getting married during winter, here are five convincing reasons that are sure to get you thinking.
1. You can stop worrying about the weather
As good as Jersey is in the summer, there's no guarantee the sun will shine on your big day. Worrying about something you can't control can be extremely stressful. A winter wedding alleviates this stress. With all the festivities taking place under one roof, you can be sure that you, your guests and your perfect dress will all stay warm and dry.
And if the sun does shine, crisp winter days provide a unique backdrop and colour palette for those all important photos.
2. No need to compete with other couples
During summer the best photographers, videographers, florists and make-up artists are all extremely busy. Some couples book them years in advance. But in winter you'll have the pick of bunch. And, if you're lucky, you may even get a discounted rate.
3. More relaxed and flexible
During the height of wedding season, popular venues may have 2-3 weddings a weekend, meaning timings and schedules are pretty rigid. In winter, you'll likely be the only couple getting hitched that weekend, so if a speech overruns or the bride fancies another glass of bubbly, it's easier to be flexible.
4. Brighten up the winter months
After the festivities of Christmas, the period from January to Easter is quiet, with most of us just urging spring to hurry up and arrive! Your winter wedding can be a brightening experience during those dark days. Guests will feel refreshed and revitalised by the positivity, and they'll have you to thank for it.
5. Travel is more affordable
During winter, travel and accommodation costs for off-island guests are much more affordable. Plus they likely won't be committed to any other weddings around the same time, ensuring they'll have the funds to attend your special day.
Convinced? Good. Now you need a venue...
