As the evenings draw in and the seasons begin to change, winter is the perfect time to book a wedding that bucks the trend of traditional summer nutipals.

Planning the perfect winter wedding

Here at Event Insurance, we have compiled a list of reasons why winter weddings tick all the boxes...

Availability plays a key role in the decision-making process of picking your dream venue. It is common knowledge that it can be difficult to secure a wedding venue at the height of summer and also, summer weddings can be costly just because of the time of year.

With summer vacations, school breaks and bank holidays to consider, there are a lot of different events to factor into your big plans. Not to mention the fact venues book up many years in advance.

The winter months can offer up a world of possibility when it comes to increased availability and places to choose from. Wedding venues that may have been previously unavailable often lower their price tags and offer greater flexibility.


Everyone is aware of the plight of the Great British summer. What one minute can be a heatwave can quickly turn into a washout in a matter of hours, with the unpredictability of summertime causing wedding parties unprecedented stress.

What could be nicer than a cold crisp winter morning or a touch of snow upon the roof of your venue? Imagine roaring open fires, or a box full of cosy blankets for your guests to enjoy. The winter months can be magical on all counts and it is the little touches that go a long way.

Christmas spirit

There is a reason why it's regarded as the most wonderful time of the year. All of that Christmas spirit surely won’t go to waste if your wedding takes place in the throws of the festive period.

The week before Christmas? New Year's eve? The pick of dates is yours. Some of the best weddings capitalise on the festive period, giving it a new definition, and a whole host of unforgettable moments.

In 2018 it was confirmed that August was the most popular month of the year to get married, with June and July following closely behind.

With 2% of weddings in 2018 taking place in January, why not combat the January blues with an exciting event to look forward to.

Plus - you get to benefit from all of the amazing extra decorations.

Having a winter wedding means that you have an even longer amount of time to save for your dream honeymoon.

If you can’t wait until then, why not break it up with the increasingly popular mini-moon. Popular choices are UK breaks and European getaways which can be an excellent way of celebrating your commitment.

The heat of summer can make it difficult to find the perfect outfit, but wintertime means that you can go all out on the black-tie theme. Tailored suits and bowties, sophisticated dresses and pashminas.

There is more scope when it comes to winter wardrobes. And if that doesn’t inspire you enough, why not theme it? 

With venues across the UK taking bookings for 2020 and beyond, now is the perfect time to start putting your plans in place.

But before you start providing deposits for your wedding day and signing formal agreements between you and your suppliers, it is important to consider wedding insurance, designed to support you should any issues arise.
