It's been a mild a winter here in Northern Virginia. We've had a few dustings here and there, but I know that is definitely not enough for the snow lovers. I'll be honest, I'm not a really big fan of winter and snow, HOWEVER I do love a snowfall or two. It's something about being cuddled up with your fur baby and man friend binging on a Netflix show or taking on a craft project you've been dying to do. Those snowfalls and being kept in the house for a day or two can definitely have its perks.
Now, I will tell you that I love me some winter weddings! The pearl white dresses amongst the snow, the candles lit along the aisle, warm cider bars, twinkle lights, and the wedding dress accessories! The list could go on and on for me to swoon over winter weddings. PLUS! Depending on the month, you can cash in some major savings with a winter wedding. The Knot reports that January, February, and March, for most of the country, are what we call "off season." During these months you can find discounts and deals with most of your wedding vendors. Now, keep in mind Valentine's Day is the exception to the rule... thank you, consumerism. Haha! ;)
