Why Winter?

Although winter has definitely taken a rise in popularity in the wedding world, it still isn’t the busiest time of the year for brides. And that’s exactly why you should choose it. There’s a certain, majestic quality about this time of the year. Between the holidays and the snow falling, it’s a beautiful and romantic way to exchange vows.

Also, you may get more discounted options by going with an “off-season” celebration. From the venue to the caterers, there aren’t as many brides fighting for a slot so prices and packages won’t be so hard on the wallet.

Why Contemporary?

There’s been such an influx of rustic and shabby chic weddings that a modern take on the celebration will be such a breath of fresh air. Instead of going with pallet pieces and bouts of burlap, the sharp edges and sophisticated of a contemporary day will make for an even more original and creative flow of ideas.

If you want something timeless too, going with the more contemporary route will suit your needs. This style genre is less likely to go out of style and will hold a more classic stance than some of the other trendier fashions.
