If you really want an outdoor ceremony, consider making it a short ceremony overlooking snowcapped mountains by an outdoor fireplace. Offer a little something to your guests in the form of winter wedding favors for their cooperation in the cold weather. Perhaps, some pretty blankets can be handed out or hand warmers, like mittens. You can even offer a hot drink before the ceremony starts. Make sure to have plenty of outdoor heaters and definitely include a note in your invitations about the outdoor ceremony, so they know to dress warm and in layers. It is recommended that the entire outdoor portion of the wedding last no longer than 30 minutes.
Brides who are targeting a wedding around this time of the year have numerous possibilities for a winter wedding and many ways of incorporating the season into the wedding. A mountainside wedding in the winter can be just lovely.
