Stylish Winter Wedding Venues Ideas

Updated on April 6, 2013

Winter Weddings

Winter is a less popular season when it comes to weddings. However, winter weddings bring along a series of advantages.

As fewer couples get married during the cold season, it would be easier and a lot cheaper to find a good venue, or to book your favorite band.

Besides, only during the cold months you can have a magical winter wonderland wedding. If the idea appeals to you, here are some ideas of stylish winter wedding venues.

Castle Winter Weddings

Does the castle in the image look familiar? The Sleeping Beauty? Disneyland?

No other wedding setting would be more appropriate for a stylish winter wedding than a romantic castle or manor. Even if it is for one day, you will certainly feel like a queen and a king when welcoming your guests under a luxurious chandelier in a castle’s lobby. In order to enhance the event’s romanticism, you can rent a horse driven carriage.

Europe abounds in such royal landmarks that currently serve as reception ceremonies venues. In Switzerland the 17th century Coppet Castle overlooking the Geneva Lake makes a great venue and its gardens are the perfect background for your wedding pictures. In the same scenic area, you can find the historic Montreux Castle.

Although the Old Continent certainly holds the record of turrets and manors, you can find such locations in other parts of the world as well. Biltmore Castle in North Carolina is not less romantic than the Scottish ones. Nebraska’s Joslyn Castle can very well compete with the worldwide famous Loire Valley architectural gems. The Texan Falkenstein with its exquisite Lily Pond and Butterfly Garden is a good counterpart for the German Neuschwanstein, whose replica it is.

Ski Winter Weddings

Ski Weddings

Do both of you find it difficult to stay away from the ski slopes even for one weekend? Then, say “I do” surrounded by the jaw-dropping scenery you simply love: snow-capped mountain peaks, infinite white horizons, and “chocolate box” villages lurking down in the valley.

Ski weddings are not a new trend. Hundreds, if not thousands of couples from all over the world have already tied the knot in the charming setting a ski resort offers. Here are some photo collages for inspiration:

Igloo Winter Weddings

A castle wedding is certainly romantic and stylish; saying “I do” on the ski slope would mean embracing your lifetime hobby on a very solemn moment; getting married in an igloo means getting off any beaten track and having and outside the box ceremony. Just look for the right event planner that would provide you with such a package.

An increasingly popular trend in the Alps, the igloo weddings virus seems to penetrate other corners of the world as well. For a touch of luxury, hire a helicopter to descend right in front of your nuptial igloo.

Snow Village Weddings

Snow Village Wedding

If you want a magical winter wonderland setting for the most romantic day of your life, Snow Village located only 200 km above the Artic Circle, in the Finish Lapland, is the perfect choice. Snow Village offers professional wedding planning services for international couples.

Its ice carved reception halls, an ice hotel in whose rooms the temperature never goes below -2 degrees, and even an ice chapel make the ideal setting for an off the beaten track winter wedding.

Make sure you book in advance as the village is open only 3-4 months every year, starting early December till the end of March, or beginning of April. Tell your guests to pack some warm clothes and not to forget their cameras.
