How to Plan a Christmas Winter Wonderland Wedding

It is the ‘sparkle’ season and the perfect opportunity to say ‘I do’ surrounded by stunning, snowy scenery. If you are planning a winter wonderland wedding, you will undoubtedly be wondering how to make it as special and memorable as it can possibly be. You will be investigating various Whitby wedding venues, thinking about colour schemes, and dreaming about the occasion. Here are three tips to keep in mind to ensure that your winter wedding is everything you hope it to be and more. 

The Colour Scheme 

Most brides who opt to have their wedding during winter will opt for a classic ice blue and white or silver colour scheme. Others who are combining their special day with the Christmas season may opt for more Christmas-y colours, like red, green and gold. However, it is your big day, so do not let traditions force you into selecting a colour scheme that you are not happy with. You can make anything work if you put a bit of effort into it! 

The Dress 

If you will be conducting your winter wedding outdoors, you will need to choose a wedding dress that provides extra warmth. One with sleeves is obviously a better selection than a sleeveless princess dress! Also, remember to pay attention to the fabrics used to make the dress. Silk mikado, faille, gabardine, brocade, moire and velvet are much warmer options to consider. 

The Wedding Venue

There are many different options when it comes to choosing a wedding venue for a winter wedding. Having said that, one of the best-loved Whitby wedding venues is that of the Royal Ashburn Golf Club. A Royal Ashburn wedding offers you the chance to maximize on the beautiful winter scenery, along with providing an indoor function venue for you to get the party started after you have exchanged rings and said ‘I do’. We offer winter wedding packages that cost as little as $99 per person, and we are able to accommodate up to 240 guests.

The Unforgettable Beauty of a Golf Course Wedding

Think about all the great modern conveniences that help make life easier. From being able to do your banking without ever having to stand in line at a bank, to starting your car without a key, new technologies seem to come along daily to help us do things faster and/or easier.

So when will someone make it easier to plan a wedding?

Anyone who’s been involved with wedding planning knows. That with the sheer number of options available today for every aspect of the wedding. The job of choosing the best ones for you seems more difficult today than it ever was.

Before, when you were ready to go ahead with your wedding, you had an engagement party and sent out invitations. Today, you need a website, Facebook page, Save-the-Date announcements, #hashtags – and still send the invitations and plan a party. And then the real work starts.

Finding the Right Setting

One of the major tasks of any wedding planning is choosing the setting for the nuptials and reception. If you’re planning a more religious ceremony, you’ll likely exchange vows in a house of worship. But many couples are choosing options like garden weddings, or ‘destination’ weddings in exotic locales, where the ceremony and reception happen in the same place.

The combination of the natural setting and reception facilities on-site is an attractive option that transforms the ceremony and reception into a single, continuous celebration.

The Beauty of a Golf Course Wedding

The first thing most couples need to know about planning their ceremony and/or reception at a golf course is that it doesn’t have to have anything to do with golfing. A beautifully groomed golf course (like the one we have here at Royal Ashburn!) gives you a stunning, natural setting for your ceremony all year round.

In addition to the beautiful surroundings, there are many more advantages to choosing a golf-course wedding. And some of them are exclusive to Royal Ashburn!

2. The Right Rooms

Larger golf clubs will offer a variety of options for room sizes to accommodate every weeding, from the most intimate to the grandest.

3. Complete Meals and Refreshments Packages

Golf clubs have top-notch chefs and servers already in place to serve their club members. That means you get a choice of meals, bar services and extras to make your wedding reception everything you want it to be.

4. Wedding Planning

If you prefer, on-site personnel can help you with everything for the perfect wedding, from finding an officiant to booking the band, and everything in between.
