Essential Cold Weather Wedding Tips

Consider our cold weather wedding tips when planning your special day in Syracuse

Cold Weather Wedding Tips

There is nothing quite like the winter in Syracuse! If you are planning a wedding in Salt City over the winter months, it’s important to consider some cold weather wedding tips to keep everyone happy and toasty despite frigid temperatures.

There can be many benefits to having a wedding in winter, such as incorporating the festive mood of the holiday season. It’s entirely appropriate to combine seasonal décor with the wedding. Even if the event is after the New Year, you can maintain some winter-themed centerpieces and decorations with snowflakes, winter trees covered in sparkling lights and cool winter colors. If the wedding is taking place in the coldest of months, you might even consider the opposite approach and create a beach or Hawaiian theme complete with palm tree decorations and tropical drinks.

3 Cold Weather Wedding Tips to consider
1. Dress Appropriately
You don’t want to spend your big day shivering! If you’ll be getting married with chilly temperatures outside, you can be elegant and warm, stylish and cozy…and so can your wedding party. Consider closed-toe shoes, shawls, fur stoles, or matching formal coats for the bride and bridesmaids. Formal dresses with sleeves are also an option. The groom and groomsmen can opt for dark formal coats, matching scarves, and dressy gloves to keep the chill away.
2. Run with a Cozy Theme
Who doesn’t love getting cozy on a cold day?
In the same tone, your guests will appreciate cozy touches for your wedding and reception. Glowing and flickering candles give a warm ambiance, and providing soft blankets in a chilly venue is a thoughtful touch. Special drinks like hot cocoa, cider, and hot toddies will warm guests down to their toes.
3. Choose a Flexible Venue
In the colder months, guests will have layers to shed when they come in from the outdoors. The event venue should have a way to accommodate these, such as a coat area or a room for storing guests’ personal items, like outerwear.

When consider a winter wedding in Syracuse, the Marriott Syracuse Downtown is the perfect spot! Imagine your photos set in front of our grand fireplace in the Lobby and dancing the night away under the blue skies in our ballroom. Opened in 1924, the Hotel Syracuse was the grand lady of Central New York hotels for many years before its closing in 2004. Countless weddings and other social events, as well as the meetings of many business groups and conventions, were held in its Persian Terrace, Grand Ballroom and other function rooms.

At the Marriott Syracuse we would love to be part of your special day!
