I would think it’s fine. I live in Canada so it’s usually still cold here until the middle of April. Think about the people who live in a place like California and have a winter themed wedding..it’s never cold or wintery there. So do what you want and who cares what people think!

I’m from Iowa, too!! Where are you getting married?

And I agree, that it is definitely your day!! I might go with more icicles than snowflakes, but that is your call!

I say do whatever makes you happy. Why not change the month to March if you have a better chance for snow. I’m having a winter wedding and am really hoping it snows for our wedding!

Anyone who thinks that theme is tacky is just plain silly. Do what you love and don’t worry about it. Your dad is right. Also, non-Asians having Japanese zen themes aren’t judged. Nor are people in 2012 who have ’40’s theme weddings.

An added bonus is that you’ll be able to shop Christmas clearance for decorations ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re doing that for lights, but we’re also getting married on 29 Dec, so we run the risk of not getting what we wanted.

Ha…I might find it a little odd. By April I am ready for spring and flowers.  But I really wouldn’t care as a guest.  So do what you want!

Being from IA originally, I think you’re much safer having a winter wedding in April than a spring wedding ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love your theme and roll with it! It’ll be beautiful, and if you love it, that’s what all the guests will see.

Ill be honest, I would find it odd to have a full out winter wonderland themed wedding in April.  By then most of us are over snow, and its not as exciting!  But I also agree it is your wedding, and you do what you want not what other people think!  I dreamed of having a winter wedding too, and by chancce I get to have one, I wasnt going to because I am in Canada and February is very likely chance of snow…good for me, not good for driving guests.  But we had to have it sooner than we thought. If for some reason I  had to have it in April I would still do winter inspired…I would just leave out the obvious snow flakes, snow, etc.  Think of colours, white, silver, champagne, blues, etc.

Honestly, it is YOUR wedding and you can do whatever you want whenever you want. You only get one wedding, so do it the way that YOU want. ๐Ÿ™‚

What about a “winter/spring” theme.  For example in CO it’s still winterish in April.  It still snows but flowers are starting to bloom through the snow.  Tulips, snow crocus, etc…  You could use the colors of those flowers (and those flowers) with other “icy” colors.  But avoid snowflake decor.

Nevermind.  I have no idea what I’m talking about.  But to answer your question:

-You can do whatever you would like and have fun with it!

-I would find it a bit odd to attend a wedding in April that had a full on winter theme

 

Good luck!!

Since you asked for full honesty… I think it’s a bit odd. I have always been of the thought that the wedding location and time should dictate everything else ( example: reception in an old fire house equals red tones, not pink tulips or November wedding equals browns and orange tones or harvest themes).  That said, and most importantly, you should do what YOU want. It is your day and the people that know you best will, I’m sure, see that your personality is reflected in what you’ve chosen. I am planning to get married on a bluff where people have to ride up in an SUV or hike a rugged path. Many may think it odd, but they ‘ll definitely know it’S me. Be you first and foremost.

The winter/spring poking through idea could be really cool if it is done right. Also I don’t know Iowa well so I may not know what I’m talking about. I am from Cali though and disagree that I’d enjoy a winter theme. In April it would confuse me… But then again maybe not if it was super cold out upon arriving in your town.

I would find it really weird. March would be ok, but April…I donno. Do whatever makes you happy but as a guest I would be confused and wonder why you didn’t just have the wedding in the winter. My husband and I had our wedding Feb in Toronto Canada and it was great!

I’d think it was kinda cool! Because I love the theme but day to day I honestly hate winter, so I’d be into that.
