Let it snow
Let it snow
You’ve picked Scotland as your wedding destination and already have your sights on a winter wedding with a light dusting of snow. A romantic winter wonderland is a dream, but how do you make that dream come true?
If you’re hoping for some snow to fall on your wedding day, the coldest months in Scotland are usually January and February, meaning snow may be more likely to fall. Remember that Scotland can boast a micro-climate all of its own, so it may not always be the most predictable! Our advice? Plan for all types of weather…
Our first tip is to pick a venue that has good access (snow may be pretty, but just think how your guests will get there if the weather does turn). And make sure there are plenty of pretty indoor as well as outdoor options. That includes space for those all important wedding photographs. Remember if you want to capture that family moment with both sides coming together on-mass (including granny and grandad!) you will want to have space to take this photograph and of course somewhere to slip away to for photographs of the two of you.
While you’re thinking of access, give some thought to your wedding transport. If you’re booking a vintage car, be sure and chat with the car hire company about their back-up plans and what they do if the weather turns bad. If you’re planning on using friends and family to help with transport for your winter wedding, it’s best to select the 4-wheel-drive option over the sports car.
Whatever you do, plan your wardrobe around the weather. Going out in the snow will be lots of fun, but you will need to don some boots for this. You’ll also want to bag yourself some wedding brollies.
And if you’re really after snow at all costs, then why not create your own (with the help of your very clever florist or event designer).
