6 Reasons To Consider a Winter Wedding in North Georgia

Whilst weddings in the warmer months are always going to be popular we are here to tell you that you can still have a magical outdoor winter wedding in North Georgia. In fact there are many advantages that you may not be aware of. Let’s dive in and explore the reasons why hosting a winter wedding in North Georgia could be a fantastic idea:

1. Mild Winter Weather

While North Georgia can experience cooler temperatures in the winter, it typically doesn’t get as extreme as some northern states. This means you can still enjoy outdoor wedding activities like photo sessions or even an outdoor ceremony. For example, our versatile venue offers an outdoor covered pavilion allowing shelter from the elements whilst overlooking the vineyards for a unique outdoor experience. We can then host a reception in our spacious, heated main venue.

2. Scenic Beauty

North Georgia’s landscapes are stunning year-round, but they take on a magical quality in winter. Imagine saying your vows against a backdrop of frost covered grape vines, countryside and woodland — as you can see from the photos below, it’s a picture-perfect setting for your wedding.

3. Venue Availability 

January and February are our quietest months for weddings. Since this is considered the off-peak season in North Georgia you are likely to have a much easier time securing your dream venue at a lower cost. If you are on time constraints this time of year would be ideal as we are often booked out far in advance for summer months.

4. Unique Décor Opportunities

Winter-themed weddings offer a wealth of creative décor possibilities. Of course you can run with a Christmas theme if you are getting married around that time, but you could also opt for a winter wedding without a specific holiday theme. This allows you to create a timeless and elegant event where everyone feels included and comfortable. 

You can draw inspiration from the natural beauty of the winter season, incorporating elements like evergreen branches, pinecones, and seasonal flowers evoking the wintery charm that sets it apart from traditional spring or summer weddings.

Winter weddings also lend themselves to cozy and intimate atmospheres. You can incorporate warm, inviting elements like candles, and rich fabrics to create a romantic ambiance that your guests will love.

5. Less Competition when booking vendors

With fewer couples opting for winter weddings, you’ll face less competition for vendors and accommodations. This can give you more flexibility and negotiating power when it comes to booking everything from photographers to hotels for your guests.

6. Honeymoon Opportunities 

North Georgia’s proximity to other winter destinations, such as the Blue Ridge Mountains or even nearby ski resorts, opens up exciting honeymoon possibilities for you and your partner to explore after the wedding.

Ultimately, a winter wedding in North Georgia offers a unique and memorable experience for you, your partner, and your guests. It’s a chance to create lifelong memories against a backdrop of natural beauty and seasonal charm. For more inspiration on winter weddings in North Georgia, be sure check out these posts:
