A Refreshing Take On Weddings
As the temperature drops below zero, some couples are thinking about their winter wonderland nuptials.
Winter weddings have become increasingly popular at Azuridge and for brides and grooms planning their special day, we’ve called on the local talent to create tips on hosting the hottest party on the coldest days.

Why get married in winter?
It’s considered a slow time in the industry. However, the likelihood of securing your first choice in venue, photographer, and other favorite vendors is greatly enhanced. Winter wedding fashion is breathtaking; as you find most brides and grooms bring different types of footwear and cover-ups to the mix.
What’s popular right now?
Just because you’re having a winter wedding doesn’t mean you have to succumb to winter shades. A big trend we’re seeing is the use of copper metals & colours to add a tone of warmth to a monochromatic/minimalist aesthetic. Bouquets with rich colours, like Marsala and deep purples are also very popular, with lots of greenery to balance it out.
Personalizing table settings with winter greenery and natural items is also very endearing. Think small pinecones or a sprig of evergreen to add a seasonal touch to your menu. Including elements like hot cider with cinnamon sticks, or frosted cocktails is a cute way to incorporate a winter theme.
