  • Wedding: February 2020 - City, State

I’m getting married in Canada in late February. Everything will be indoors, and 90% of our guests are locals so hopefully a snowstorm wouldn’t cut down our guest list too much! 

We mostly decided on February because of our work schedules, but also because nobody seems to do much in February haha. By then Christmas is long gone and spring is stil sooooo far away (at least for us Canucks!) that we figured it would be a nice time to do something exciting. Also we’re going somewhere hot for our honeymoon, and hopefully every year on our anniversary! It feels much nicer  to get out of town when the weather is miserable!

  • Wedding: September 2017 - River Museum & Aquarium

My SIL got married March 31 in Wisconsin. It was cold, windy, and gray and gloomy. The snow had started to melt so everything was mucky brown. THAT being said, we had a lovely time guests didn’t seem to care because everything was inside, and we all had fun. Ourdoor pictures were a bit chilly. We all wore jackets and would throw them to the side with each take and then warm up for a minute and move on. 

If it works for you, go for it!

Are a lot of your guests from SE Michigan or will they be flying or driving in? My experience with the state indicates that’s an important distinction in terms of what’s a “reasonable” situation to be driving in. 

Will there be options nearby for guests to stay? I live in SE Mi and travel a lot for work. In my experience, there are few situations where I’m not able to drive or fly out of the city, but lots of situations where I’d prefer to stay close to home given the weather.
