If weddings were a season, they would be summer, right? Those long warm days, the bright blue sky and the magical dusky sunsets. Flowers bursting with colours from the rainbow, stunning outdoor venues….and that’s before we even start on the #dress and #styling potential. But before you batten down the hatches in your Uggs and hibernate for the next few months, we urge you to consider the alternative. A ‘winter wedding’ should not be sniffed at and let us tell you why.
Yes, we all love summer, but consider the advantages of a winter wedding. Goodbye humidity. And flies. And hay fever. That venue you want but can’t get until 2022? Probably available in winter. More affordable for travelling relatives. A honeymoon in summer. And red wine on the menu #yesplease. Something to be excited about in those dark cold months (ok, so this only really applies to Victoria and Tassie). Winter is coming ladies, and just quietly, you might be surprised by what’s on offer.
To whet your appetite a bit more and give you some ideas and inspiration, the fantastic team at Encore St Kilda in Melbourne will be hosting a ‘Winter Wedding’ open day on Saturday 11 June. Here you will be able to see the stunning venue set for a ‘real wedding’ later in the evening, the latest styling trends and the crème de la crème of the wedding industry will be on hand to answer all your questions. There will also be special offers exclusive to the day #result.
