While some Brides dream of a June wedding, others know that a southwestern Ontario winter can offer a magical backdrop for an unforgettable celebration.
And although you may not be able to hold your ceremony outdoors in February, there are plenty of great reasons to have an off-season Wedding:
Winter is the ideal time of year for budget-conscious Brides. Elm Hurst Inn & Spa and Idlewyld Inn & Spa are pleased to offer Winter Brides a preferred rate for off-season celebrations (January, February & March.)
A choice of dates and vendors
Since only 30 per cent of couples choose to hold their ceremony during the coldest months of the year, chances are your preferred date will be available!
Winter Brides also have more choice when it comes to photographers, bands, florists and other wedding vendors. It’s their low season too, and they’ll be happy to work with you to make your dreams come true, often at a reduced rate.
Winter wedding themes
Popular seasonal themes include Winter Wonderland and Fire & Ice. Candles can add a romantic, cozy and inexpensive touch to any winter affair, or consider Poinsettias or Holly as a budget-friendly alternative to the traditional floral centerpiece.
Our inns are always dressed to the nines for the holiday season, making the occasion even more unforgettable for you and your guests.
Creative comfort foods
Comfort foods such as a hearty soup or lasagna can be a welcome addition to any Winter Wedding Menu. And everyone loves fun winter beverages like hot apple cider, hot chocolate, and eggnog.
Choose a dress adorned with sequins and crystals to sparkle like the snow. You’ll also need a fur (or faux-fur) wrap or long satin cape to keep cozy for those outdoor photos. Add a matching muff or pair of long satin gloves for an extra touch of glamour!
An island honeymoon
Winter is the perfect time of year to escape to the islands for your honeymoon, with plenty of all-inclusive packages available.
