    • Wedding: October 2012

    I really wanted a beautiful fall day with the leaves changing colors and the sun shining. We got married October 6th and in Kansas, October is still usually pretty warm. Not this year though, it was CHILLLLLYYYY. It was still a perfect day though. Not sure I would go with the long sleeves in June but I also don’t know what weather in June in Canada is like. If it’s your dream, do it!

    I honestly believe that you can do whatever colors you want during any season. You can absolutely have your bridesmaids in deep colored dressed (red, black, etc.) in the summer months, but maybe have them in cocktail length rather than long dresses. Then maybe do something like ivory flowers with red accents. Don’t let the “traditionally” seasonal colors get you down!

    • Wedding: April 2013

    I have always wanted a Winter Christmas wedding!  However, I live in Minnesota and just don’t want to deal with having to worry about the weather as we have a lot of out of town guests traveling.  We are getting married in April and the theme of my wedding is still going to be Christmas!

    • Wedding: January 2013

    We’re getting married in the winter because it’s what worked out for our families to all be able to attend (it was either that or summer and I sweat like a beast and did NOT have any interest in getting married in the heat!) I would have preferred spring, but honestly season doesn’t matter since I’ve never had interest in having an outdoor wedding (we’re having it in a beauty and the beast-esque library). I’m wearing a sleeveless dress in winter, it’s climate controlled inside. Do whatever colors you want. If you are going to be inside in an air conditioned room, or if it isn’t too hot where you are, wear long sleeves. Who cares what season it is!

    • Wedding: June 2012

    I didn’t want to worry about weather issues – rain, wind, etc. so I waited two years to get exactly the time of the year (down to the month!) that I wanted. I spent one year accessing the weather patterns of each month and narrowed it down to a small window. We definitely wanted an indoor-outdoor venue and I get cold very very easily, so it was important to me that we picked a time of year that allowed us to have an outdoor ceremony without me freezing.

    I love love LOVE the thought of a winter wedding, the pictures are all so beautiful and magical looking. But in reality, I live in a crappy climate and I hate that winter is so cold and wet and everything is soggy and dirty. So I think my compromise will be a summer wedding in the evening with twinkly lights and rich, wine type colours.

    • Wedding: August 2013

    I always dreamed of being married in the winter, particularly Christmas since it’s my favorite time of year. 

    Unfortunately, my dream venue booked up basically a year in advance for Saturday weddings.  I am now getting married on Sunday and in August, because it was available and easier for my FI’s family to travel to Colorado.

    I hope it won’t be too hot and that my color scheme will work, but I’m just so excited to marry him that it’s hard to get too upset about it being in summer instead of winter.
