Although it may be easier to find a wedding venue during the warm spring, summer, and even early fall months, you'll still have plenty of options to choose from in the winter. Depending on your preferences and budget, you may even need help with narrowing the spaces down.
If you live in a location that experiences typical cold and snowy winter weather, an indoor venue is a must. When you're beginning the process of choosing the perfect place, consider you and your fiance's hobbies and interests.
For instance, if you both love art, then a gallery or museum may be right up your alley. You can also go with a venue that has sentimental value, such as the place where you met or had your first date. After choosing the right space, reserve it as soon as possible, especially if your wedding will take place during the busy holiday season.
Another thing to consider is if the venue offers private event space or not. Depending on the size of your guest list, you may need to reserve just a room, or the entire facility if that is an option.
Here are some additional winter wedding venue ideas to get you started:
To capture that summer feel in the dead of winter, consider an indoor botanical garden, or conservatory. Conservatories feature an assortment of plants, flowers, and trees, typically under a dome. It replicates the look and feel of a botanical garden year-round, and will provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.
Many conservatories offer private event space or even after-hours usage of the entire space. Inquire as to whether they offer an onsite caterer, or if you'll have to provide your own meals. Like any other indoor venue, you'll also need to ask about their alcohol and music policies if needed.
Elegant and spacious, ballrooms make ideal venues for large wedding parties. They typically feature high ceilings and wide, open spaces that serve as blank canvases for any type of wedding reception theme.
For example, you can fill the space with colorful balloon arches and inflatables as a whimsical touch, or transform the venue into a beautiful winter wonderland. Fill empty corners with tree branches covered with sparkling white and silver spray paint, and wrap twinkling string lights around pillars and beams.
Ballrooms also provide ample space for rented dance floors and DJ booths if you plan to offer live music and dancing. Guests will have plenty of space to mix and mingle before and after dinner.
