If you and your spouse have chosen winter for the season of your wedding you’ve made an excellent choice. Winters in Connecticut offer breathtaking backdrops of pristine snow, clear blue skies and evenings full of stars and brilliant lights. If you are planning a winter wedding, follow some helpful tips from The Riverhouse to ensure your wedding is an occasion to remember.
- Plan Ahead – Even though many in the wedding industry consider winter to be off-season it is still a busy time of year. Many venues will also be hosting holiday parties during December so you want to reserve the facility of your choice as soon as possible. It’s always a good idea to create a wedding checklist that will list all the important details and carefully track each one so you are prepared.
- Find the right Venue – Connecticut has no shortage of wedding facilities but you will want to find one that is right for you. Don’t just browse photos online, take the time to contact the venue manager and arrange an in-person tour so you can see what the venue looks like up close and all it has to offer. Pay careful attention to the layout, the amenities and ask if the venue offers catering, servers and bartenders. Have a list of questions prepared so it will be easy for you to cover all the bases.
- Choose the Date – Remember winter is full of holidays and vacations and if you want everyone on your guest list to attend you need to plan the date carefully. Picking a date that is too close to major holiday, such as Christmas or New years can leave you with a lot of empty tables. Give guests plenty of notice about when the wedding is and send out save the date cards to ensure all your close friends and family can clear space on their busy social calendar for your special day.
