Are you getting married between the months of November and April? If so, there is the potential that your big day could be accompanied by a big snowfall!  This shouldn’t be a surprise, we do live in the Great White North after all. But, before you freak out, remember how cute Phoebe and Mike’s wedding was? Well, yours can be just as cute, so long as you prepare properly!

Be Prepared

Make sure that you and your guests won’t be uncomfortable on your big day by ensuring you are prepared. The best way to do this is to have some supplies at the ready. From branded toques to cute mittens, or even a fire pit, your guests will thank you! On the practical side, make sure your venue is equipped with shovels, salt and everything needed to make sure your guests don’t slip or get stuck in the snow!

Communicate with your Guests

Make sure your guests are aware that snow on your wedding day might be a possibility. Remind them to dress warm and wear appropriate footwear. Let them know if there is a spot where they can keep their boots and coats. We also suggest asking everyone to be there 15 minutes earlier than you actually need, just in case!

Provide Alternate Travel Routes

It’s an unfortunate reality that snowstorms and road closures go hand in hand. Make sure to give your guests options for getting to and from your venue

Lean into it

Instead of trying to fighting the snow, lean into it and get cozy. Serve hot cider or spiked hot chocolate during your ceremony, hand out blankets for guests to cuddle under and of course, let your menu be inspired by the season (hello comfort food!).

Cute Accessories

The last thing you want on your wedding day is cold feet – and the best way to handle snow on your wedding day is to accessorize! We’re thinking sparkly UGGS and faux fur shawls for your photos!
