I’m having a February wedding in the Rockies at a ski resort. Our ceremony space IS outside and all our guests know this. The space has a winter garden and they set it up to be comfortable for guests. They regularly hold outdoor winter events there and know what they’re doing. We have an indoor backup space, too, just in case. Guests are welcome to meet us at the reception if it’s not for them (seriously – that’s totally cool with us). Our feeling is that the ceremony is for US and the reception is for us to enjoy with everyone else. We are winter cold-blooded people and our friends and family all know this.

 

It’s not for everyone but for our circle of family and friends it’s just gonna be one big ski vacation/party.

Who was the bee with the cape? Around about 6 years ago.

OP, I am as warm-blooded as they come and hate being cold. But if your ceremony was short (like 15 min) and I knew in advance that it was outdoors, I wouldn’t mind – I think it would be really unique and beautiful. I’d bundle up in an intense parka and enjoy the experience. Serving hot drinks during or immediately after the ceremony would certainly help! As would providing blankets.

And our ceremony is going to be just like you described! Short and sweet – mulled wine, cider, etc- blankets & furs and hand warmers to all the guests. My mom said she’s going to wear her snow pants. People can get fancy for the reception.
