Winter Wedding Tips in Wiltshire

Winter weddings are becoming more and more popular. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to create their own winter wonderland for their special day? The events team at our Wiltshire wedding venue have put together some top tips when planning a winter wedding;

Embrace the season

Couples looking to tie the knot in winter should take full advantage of the glorious season. There are many wonderful ways to incorporate winter into your Wiltshire wedding. Think deep red roses and berry-bursting bouquets, to labelled pine cones for place names and dried oranges and holly berries to decorate tables.

Winter wedding favours

This is where you can get creative and embrace the winter season. Give your guests sparklers (which provide fantastic photo opportunities later in the evening), candy canes (if it’s a Christmas theme) or bottles of whiskey (to warm the cockles). You can have lots of fun with this one, so use your imagination and enjoy!

Choose one venue

Travelling to and from multiple venues can prove difficult, especially if the weather is not on your side. We would suggest that you say your vows and celebrate your marriage in the same venue, to avoid running into weather delays and mishaps. As one of the top Wiltshire wedding venues, we are proud to host a licensed civil ceremony destination, which we can then turn into a beautiful dining area for your celebrations.

Keep your guests warm

Even though the temperatures may be dropping, don’t let the chilly weather put a dampener on your big day, make sure you keep your guests warm. Think hot drinks on arrival, such as mulled wine or hot chocolate and cosy throws for your guests to wrap up warm in. It’s also a good idea to make sure you have enough indoor space for your guests. At our Wiltshire wedding venue, we have function rooms that cater for receptions as large are 120, so there is plenty of space indoors to keep your guests warm and happy!

Planning a wedding out of season can seem a little daunting, but be practical, embrace the season, and have fun with it. The Leigh Park Hotel provides one of the best Wiltshire wedding venues.
