Quite possibly you have dreamed of a winter wedding full of snow, but if you live in many areas of the world, you know that no matter what date in the winter you schedule your wedding for, Mother Nature cannot guarantee that it will be a white wedding. However, there are many places in the world in which you can travel to for a snow filled wedding day. Destination weddings aren't only reserved for tropical locations and warmer climates - you could have a destination winter wedding too.
If you would like to say within America, there are plenty of ski and snow resort destinations and lodges. Most of them have wedding packages, group rates for your guests, and can "guarantee" snow for your big day - even if it is manmade. Imagine how fun and romantic it could be to have your reception in a log cabin setting, with a roaring fire going, sipping champagne, red wine or hot apple cider. After your wedding your guests can enjoy skiing, snow tubing, snowboarding, ice skating or sleigh riding. You can look for resorts in areas such as New England, the Adirondacks in New York, Lake Tahoe, Colorado, Alaska and Utah.
If you are located outside of the United States or if you're the adventurous type, how about not only traveling to a snow filled location but also a unique wedding destination? In Europe, Canada and even the United States, there are "Ice Hotels" and snow igloo hotels in which you can get married in a venue completely made of ice or snow. These hotels give an almost crystal-like atmosphere, reflecting light and are often filled with unique one of a kind works of art by artists. Locations such as the ICE Hotel in Sweden, Igloo Village in Finland, Hôtel de Glace in Canada and Chena Hot Springs in Alaska will provide the romantic and unique wedding location you may be searching for. Many of these locations also are the in area where you can view the Northern Lights, which is a once in a lifetime opportunity for some people and will provide both you and your guests a memorable experience.
Of course, if you are planning a winter wedding near or far, do not forget to give your guests a winter wedding favor to commemorate your wedding. Some great ideas are snowflake bottle openers, snow globes, hot coca packets, picture frames, or crystal items. These will all be appreciated by your guests to remember such a wonderful event.
