Six ways to keep guests warm during a winter wedding
10 Dec 2019
As temperatures dip into single figures, we’ve got top tips on how to keep your guests warm during your winter wedding
With purse friendly venue costs and the added magic of Christmas, winter wedding dates are becoming popular choices for couples to tie the knot.
However, December and January wedding dates mean guests must face the winter chill, so to keep your loved ones happy and comfortable, we’ve got six ways to keep them warm from ceremony to evening.
Serve up warm mince pies as guests arrive to your reception. It’s a great way to warm them up after the ceremony and a subtle way of adding a taste of the season into your winter celebrations without making it a full-on Christmas themed party.
Alongside mince pies, offer a glass of hot mulled wine or mulled cider; from juicy apple and black forest fruits, to spicy cloves and brandy or citrus lemon and clementine flavours.
For a fun alcohol free and kid friendly alternative, create a luxury hot chocolate station for guests to grab a warm cup of choco and decorate their drink with sweet toppings, such as marshmallows, peppermint candy, chocolate chips and cream.
When selecting what to serve for your winter wedding, choose hot menu items. Guests won't appreciate walking in from the December chill to be greeted by a cold salad, instead offer up cups of soup, warm sausage rolls, spicy chilli prawns or hot cheesy bites.
Add faux fur rugs to your chairs for added warmth and comfort for your guests during the wedding breakfast.

Offer blankets to guests, especially if you are having outdoor fireworks or hosting your big day in a large open space or historic building (such as a castle) where it may be difficult to heat up.
