I think you should go for it. Just make sure all your guests know that it is an outdoor wedding and realistically they should know to dress for the weather. You can even pick up extra pairs of gloves from the dollar store (like some people do with flip flops) and have them available for people to wear if their fingers get cold. 

Honestly, just keep people updated and remind them often. I am Canadian as well, and I would definitely dress for the weather even if the ceremony was going to be inside. Also, keep your ceremony fairly short and sweet (I wouldn’t make it longer than 25-30 mins) because standing still is when I feel the coldest!

Hope that helps!

@sarahuccs:  Prime example of thinking of your wedding guests! Beautiful pictures, but OMG. Her poor bridesmaids! Seriously?? Little dresses for them, big fur for her, and all the guests wrapped up to the gills. At least they all looked like an adorable and happy crew anyways.

I think its an awesome idea and would love it, but then again I’m a big skier / outdoor person. I just would not be happy if I had to wear a dress!

I would attend. I have a winter coat designed for artic temperatures so being outside in the winter (I’m from Ontario) is no problem. I think it would be beautiful and if it’s only 10 minutes, people will survive. Maybe you could serve some warm cocktails/ beverages as people arrive so they have something warm to hold onto during the ceremony?

We got married in Lake Arrowhead, CA in February. The snow made for some awesome pictures. It wasn’t too cold with temps probably in the high 50s, and our ceremony was on the balcony of my mom’s cabin where the snow had been cleared off. Honestly, I would prefer being cold than attending a wedding in 100 degree weather (which I’ve done many times). None of our guests seemed to mind the cold weather too much.
