Okay, so the hard part is over—you’ve decided when you want to get married and maybe you’ve even booked a venue. Good work! And if I may say, a winter wedding is an excellent choice. The season is so underrated! First of all, it’s a naturally romantic time of year. From the lights twinkling in the trees to all the opportunities to cozy up next to your lover on those cold, cold nights, it’s impossible not to feel all kinds of smitten. There was a reason Lorelai Gilmore said snow was like catnip, people!

Winter weddings are also the epitome of glam. It doesn’t get more elegant than dramatic outerwear, cocktails by the fireplace, horse-drawn carriages, and dinners by candlelight. And you probably already know this, as you picked the date yourself, but I’m willing to bet your big day will feel even more special because it won’t be sandwiched between a million summer nuptials. Lucky you.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that if you’re not on the winter wedding train yet, hop on stat.
