I think your plans sound sweet! Anyone who loves you and supports you will be there, and that’s what is important.

I think it would be beautiful the falls in the winter are just gorgeous! Where are you thinking about doing it? I have never seen the falls from the American side – would you have the Canadian horseshoe in the back or be out on one of those piers next to the American falls?

I say go for it – just wear a beautiful faux fur wrap or something and set your make-up well that mist is the devil LOL!

Personally, I don’t think I would want to stand outside in the freezing cold. I would def. go to the reception at the restaurant though.

Maybe hire a videographer for the Falls so its just you & your Fiance there (and whoever else wants to be at the Falls?) and then play it for everyone at the restaurant for those who don’t want to be out in the freezing cold?

do what you want! people keep insisting that i’m going to have to use my plan b because of the cold… and it’s still 15 days before the wedding. in fl. it could be 80 degrees by then. of course for you that will have to be way more of a miracle, but my point is don’t listen to people and do what you want!

I think it would be fine and the falls are very beautiful. I, too, have only really seen them from the Canadian side and not the American side and they were absolutely gorgeous and would make for a great ceremony site. However, since it is in the winter, just keep in mind that a lot of people might not show up for the outdoor ceremony and would just come to the indoor reception. Ms Sassy had a good idea of videotaping the ceremony and playing it at the reception for people who missed out on it.

That sounds like an amazing plan.  I would love to do something like that.  Just make sure if it’s too cold to have a coat available that would go with your dress.

I don’t see what people would want to change, that sounds like a fairytale wedding to me!  I say keep your plans, and if anyone has any “suggestions” just tell them you’ll keep that in mind, then do what you want anyway.

I think it sounds great, but we’re making our family witness our marriage vows in Asheville on the Monday before Thanksgiving, come rain, wind, or snow, so maybe I’m a little biased. 

People always think they know what’s best for you, even when they don’t even know you, so I say do what makes you happy. And if you’re worried about your guests being cold, hand out thick blankets and ponchos.

People get married in mid summer and make the guest sit in the hot weather outside why cant your guest sit in the cold? I say go for it!! : )

Fiance and I and some of our friends went to the falls in February a few years ago!  They are so beautiful, and even more incredible when they’re frozen.  I say go for it!  Your guests will need to bundle up as it is pretty cold in front of the falls, but as long as your ceremony isn’t super long (and you’re not doing it in the dead of night when we decided to pose for pictures) they will be fine!

Just let people know to wear their heavy coats and have it outside like you want. If it’s too cold for people, then they might skip it, but that’s their choice.

Go for it… as long as your guests are informed before hand to bundle up, I’m pretty sure they can tough it out for the duration of the ceremony (try to keep it short though out of consideration for them). Those that love you and care for will definitely come and be witnesses to your union, cold or not. And besides, there’s the sheer beauty of this location
