There are so many reasons to have a winter wedding in Massachusetts! From more flexibility in choosing a date to a glittery, snowy backdrop for photos, getting married in the “off” season has plenty of perks.
Here are some winter wedding tips to keep your special day cozy and warm:
Chic and Warm Wedding Attire
Fur shawls and coats are both an elegant touch for winter wedding photos and a stylish way to keep you and your wedding party toasty during portraits!
A Warm Welcome… Beverage!
Saphire Event Group offers welcome beverages that can be added to your wedding package, and we highly recommend taking advantage of this pre-ceremony beverage station during a winter wedding. Our warm beverage options are hot chocolate with mini marshmallows or hot apple cider with cinnamon stick stirrers!
Don’t forget to check out our favorite winter wedding signature cocktails for a festive cocktail hour!
We love sleeved wedding gowns in any style or season! Lace, puffy, detachable – there are hundreds of ways to incorporate sleeves for winter wedding looks that are both stunning and warm!
Winter Wedding Favors
Treat your guests to a cozy reminder of your special day! Blankets, shawls, and even cozy socks make great gifts for the chilly wedding season.
Heartwarming Holiday Touches
A winter wedding during the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to incorporate a little cheerful festivity into your decor! Personalized Christmas ornaments, countdown clocks on each table for New Year’s Eve, or even a wreath to hang your new last name on are all adorable decor ideas for winter weddings.
A Toasty Fireplace
Two of our Saphire Event Group venues feature gorgeous fireplaces that are the perfect touch for any cozy winter wedding in Massachusetts.
The Villa boasts two custom fireplaces, one on either side of the Madera ballroom, as well as one gorgeous mother-of-pearl tiled linear fireplace in the Grand Ballroom.
Saphire Estate guests have the pleasure of experiencing two unique fireplaces; one in the separate cocktail space featuring gorgeous black accents, as well as the iconic white mantled fireplace in the historic Saphire Estate Ballroom.
Cozy Candles and Lanterns
The warm ambiance of candles or lanterns is perfect for a cozy winter wedding reception. At Saphire Event Group, we allow LED candles and lanterns as aisle decor, (and they look simply stunning!) and real candles enclosed on a surface as part of a centerpiece or mantel decor. Incorporating the glow of candles or lanterns into mantel decor, sweetheart tables, and centerpieces is a simple way to bring warmth into your ceremony or reception.
These are just a few ways to bring warmth and light to a snowy wedding day! Massachusetts winter weddings are beautiful affairs and we hope to see more couples take advantage of them this season! If you’re interested in having a winter wedding at one of our venues, contact us today.
