Preparing for Winter Weather on your Wedding Day

When you choose a winter date to recite your vows, you are taking a big chance when it comes to what Mother Nature will deem appropriate for your big day. A picturesque winter wonderland makes a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos, but you’ll want to be well prepared for any inclement weather that comes your way.

The Venue

Selecting the right venue is essential when planning a winter wedding at one of the many banquet halls near Naperville. It is important to consider the convenience of your guests in case a winter storm kicks up on the day of your wedding. At Alpine Banquets, we work closely with several fine hotels in the area – many offer shuttles between their hotel and our location. This can make all the difference when a winter storm warning is in effect.

Another consideration will be if you are willing to travel between the ceremony and the reception. When planning a winter wedding, it might be better to select a location that can provide adequate accommodations for both your ceremony and the celebration that follows. Choosing Alpine Banquets allows your guests to remain warm and comfortable when walking the few steps between where you said your vows and where you’ll welcome them to your reception.

The Wardrobe

You won’t want to sacrifice your look due to inclement weather. Be well prepared to get those beautiful photo shots in front of the snowy background by making sure the bridal party, and particularly the bride, have a chic wrap and snow boots on hand for warmth and to avoid slipping. Also, consider elegant gloves for the bride and bridesmaids to keep hands cozy and stylish.

The Plan

Due to bad weather, it could take guests and vendors longer than expected to travel to your wedding location. Therefore, it might be reasonable to build a time buffer into the day. List your ceremony on your invitation as a half an hour earlier than it will begin. You might also ask vendors to arrive at your banquet hall near Naperville a couple of hours early. If you must pay certain vendors extra (i.e. the photographer, band, or DJ), it may be well worth it to have your day run smoothly.
