Fake fireplaces are available for places that do not have fireplaces or do not allow real fires.
Candles and ice sculptures can be used in centerpieces and details to add to the theme of the winter wedding. The series of lights on the ceiling can also add a winter atmosphere to your wedding.

Your winter wedding why not ?
Usually the couple choose to marry in spring or summer , because it is thought that it is the ideal time, with the perfect weather and everything is less complicated. It also influences the fact that it is easier to choose the dress for the guests. However, it is good to know that from October to May it is the low wedding season and you can get “that” dream room, more suppliers, and up to 30% discount on some items.
Many future lovers choose to celebrate in the middle of a park, on a warm night. The couple likes to perform the outdoor ceremony, and the wedding fort is held between May and September , they prefer it because they think that women can feel more comfortable with their clothes, because it is easier to take photos on the air free or because there is a wide range of farms, lounges with large parks and you can do much in open spaces with large gardens and beautiful natural views. But autumn and winter also has its charm and its benefits.
There are couples who want to start the new year together and look for the last dates of December and the first fortnight of January, or choose in winter for the great offers since the weddings go down to 40% “, and that allows a more personalized organization because the number of weddings is minimal and the concern of your organizer will be 100% only for yours and precisely because it is a low season, good prices are handled and, of course, there is greater availability of all services.
As we have seen, through experience, we assure you that, with the heating systems available today, the weather ceased to be an obstacle to think about the celebration. Therefore, in hotels, salons and Incas with closed or tightly heated rooms there would be no major problem with the ambient temperature. In the rest of the cases, the professional organizers have some care so that everything goes well:
If the event is held in a tent, you have to have a very good heating . It must be very well distributed, so that there are no cold sectors or others in which the source of heat is directed towards the guests. We will also have to think about climate comfort for those who prefer not to dance: as they remain seated. Taking care of these details, the tent gives us the possibility of creating environments not contaminated with the architecture of a room.
Making the celebration in a tent involves much more than putting it together . You have to provide it with everything: prepare the structure, air-condition it, arrange floors and carpets, set it up, add lights and sound, and install a generator set.
In many cases it is customary to build another tent, separately, to use the catering service as a kitchen. In addition, chemical toilets must be added (there are specialized companies that have luxury) carefully analyzing your location so that if it is very cold or raining, the guests are not affected.
It will be essential to enable a large wardrobe , with great storage capacity. There must be more than one person who receives and delivers the garments , to avoid a row or agglomeration.
Regarding the photos, they can be made if there is a suitable place for it, such as a winter garden . To take the images you can think in advance of very funny iconography associated with the cold, like a “winter” background with a romantic background rain , or directly simulating snowflakes using special effects of post-production.
If your celebration is in a hotel or a farm with a closed room, then in these cases you will not have any problem. Just celebrate!
On the catering, you can create a “winter menu” . For example, avoid cold entry and reinforce hot dishes . However, the organizers believe that ice cream as a dessert or in the Candy Bar is timeless and should never be missed.
The bride can wear, in addition to her dress, an elegant cover of skin in raw white or a long white coat that there are beautiful special designs for winter brides.
