7 reasons why you should choose a Winter Wedding

31st October 2018 by Natasha Goldstein

More often than not, couples will choose to get married in the summer months while the weather is warmer and the days are longer. Many get swept up in the idea of it being what is commonly known as the perfect time of year whilst forgetting the magical atmosphere that comes with having a winter wedding. Dreamsaver Wedding Insurance have put together their top 7 reasons why opting for a winter wedding may not only be more wallet friendly, but why it also could give you everything you desire and more for your wedding day.

Dreamsaver Wedding venue


Having a wedding throughout the months of October - February can often work out cheaper as it's known as the 'off peak' season. Whilst your other supplier costs may remain relatively the same, venue prices can come crashing down as much as 30% compared to what it was 3 months previously!

For example, that's a £1500 saving on what would have been a £5000 venue. This means you can afford those little extras you may not have ben able to afford otherwise.



You may be lucky enough to see snow on your wedding day. As cold as it will be, it is the perfect back drop to your special day and it will make your wedding photography the envy of your guests with its beautiful winter wonderland setting.

Dreamsaver Wedding Insurance offers protection from the affects of adverse weather conditions should the snow get a little too much and you need to cancel or re-arrange your wedding day due to the inability of a majority number of guests not being able to make the wedding.

In order for this cover to be applicable, you MUST buy your policy more than 14 days prior to the wedding. In this way, it really pays to purchase your wedding insurance as soon as possible.

Dreamsaver Atmosphere

Romantic Atmosphere

Winter is one of the most romantic times of the year with the early evenings drawing in, the use of log burners and open fireplaces, tea candles and fairy lights lighting up the scene working alongside the weather to create a cosy and warming atmosphere.

Winter weddings also work fantastically well if you're planning an intimate wedding as it will add to the charm of the day.

Dreamsaver Honeymoon

Tropical Honeymoon

Getting married during the winter months means that on the otherside of the world it's hot, hot, hot!

After your beautiful winter wedding, whisk yourselves off to the likes of the Maldives, Mauritius or a Caribbean island for an unforgettable honeymoon. During the summer months these destinations are often off limits as it's their monsoon season.

So, not only can you have a beautiful wedding, you can have that dream honeymoon in an exotic destination too!

Winter highlight

Winter Season Highlight

By the time the colder months roll around your guests will be refreshed and ready to party again after a summer full of weddings and other social occasions.

By holding off on your big day until later in the year, your wedding will receive a new-found enthusiasm from friends and family and will be another reason for them to look forward to the winter season. You will also have more time to make your wedding say just so.

Dreamsaver wedding foods

Extensive food and drink options

You can be less traditional with the food you serve at a winter wedding. Local produce and the aromas of the winter season allow a little more adventure with your wedding breakfast menu.

Warming and hearty food is often at the top of this list, swapping those summery salads and light bites for the likes of chunky soup, roast potatoes, fillet steak and fresh root vegetables. Another fun add on you could have for your wedding is a hot chocolate or mulled wine station!

Dreamsaver Wedding Music

Less Competition

There will be more availability and less competition with other brides and grooms during the autumnal and winter months of the year. This means you have a greater chance of snapping up your perfect venue at the date you want, hiring the vendors you want to cater your wedding and securing a class act for your evening reception.
