Winter is the rarest season for weddings. This means that if you’re planning a winter wedding, you will have less competition for dates, save money on services, and you can make the wedding unique if you’re willing to stretch your creativity.
Here are a few ideas for how to use this merry season to create a wedding like no other.

layers to combat the winter chills. This doesn’t need to be a boring winter
jacket, though. Dress up a warm, layered winter look using accessories and

don’t rule out winter weddings just yet. A wonderfully unexpected approach to
winter weddings is to go the complete opposite direction with your wedding
