1. Remember it will be cold and accessories will be important to keep warm. A faux fur stole, a veil, a cape or a chic cardie are all good options.
2. If it's very cold you can always wear thick tights under your wedding dress (as long as it's long) - nobody will know! This goes for your bridesmaids too.
3. If you're wearing heels, have another shoe option for your outdoor pics. You don't want to be sinking into mud or snow in your Jimmy Choos or Valentinos! Boots can be a stylish (and warm) bridal shoe option for winter weddings, especially if it rains.
4. Don't forget your bridesmaids will be cold too! Make sure to have cover ups ready for them on the day.
5. If possible have your ceremony and reception in the one venue, or venues very near to each other. This will make transport easier, in case of bad weather.
6. It will be dark quite early. Embrace it with lots of romantic candle light in both your ceremony and reception space.
7. Ensure your guests are kept warm and cheery once they arrive. A hot drink on arrival is a nice and simple idea, mulled wine or hot chocolate are always a favourite. Maybe some nice Christmas cookies or mince pies too.
8. Check with your venue if they have Christmas decorations in the room where your wedding will be. Have they photographs of them from last year? Is it ok for them to take these down if they're not to your taste?
9. It gets dark much earlier in the winter so adjust your photo schedule for more light. Taking portraits before your ceremony is often a good idea. If you're not sure how to go about this, just chat to your photographer.
10. Have nice umbrellas on stand by for outdoor wedding photographs. These don't have to be fancy - simple and black can often do the job.
11. Popular Winter options for Colour combos are Christmas -reds and greens, frosted -light blue hues and whites, metallics -antique gold, pewter, silver or copper.
12. Talk to your florist about what's in season in the winter, and work from there. Greenery like eucalyptus lends itself well to a winter wedding, and branches can make stunning centerpieces and loads of candles of course.
13. Winter Wonderland: If the snow won't come to you, rent it! Snow machines can be rented for you to create your own winter wonderland.
