Published: June 5, 2024

With the coming of winter, the snow-covered world adds a special romance to the wedding. An outdoor winter wedding ceremony is attracting more and more couples with its unique snow scenery. So, how do you plan a perfect outdoor winter wedding? Next, we will detail the planning points for a winter outdoor wedding to help you create an unforgettable dream wedding.

Choose a Suitable Wedding Venue

Choosing a suitable wedding venue is undoubtedly the key to making this moment memorable, so there is some information you need to know about choosing a venue.

Site Selection Considerations

To ensure that guests will not feel too cold and enjoy the wedding comfortably, you should avoid holding winter outdoor weddings in windy or snowy areas. Secondly, when choosing a venue, you should choose a location close to public transportation stations or easy to drive to. Besides, you should pay attention to the cleanliness and safety of the venue.

Available Venues

If you want to immerse your wedding in the embrace of nature, then a forest or national park is undoubtedly an ideal choice. In the winter, these landscapes that are draped in white are beautiful. Opting for such a venue allows you to admire spectacular snow-capped mountains, lakes, and forests, adding a unique romantic ambiance to your ceremony.

In addition to forests or national parks, private estates or gardens are also good choices. Such venues usually have a natural country style, bringing tranquility and comfort to winter weddings. Although the scenery may not be as spectacular as forests or national parks, such venues are more private. Moreover, you can personalize the layout according to your preferences to create a unique wedding venue.

Use a Wedding Tent

Wedding tents are undoubtedly an ideal item for outdoor winter weddings held in private places. They can make weddings more creative and personalized and provide guests with a warm and stable environment under cold weather conditions.

Clear Wedding Frame Tents

If you prefer traditional tent styles and want to keep quality, clear wedding frame tents are your ideal choice.

This tent uses waterproof and flame-retardant PVC fabric to keep the interior dry and comfortable even in rainy and snowy weather. At the same time, the corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy frame ensures the stability and durability of the tent, so you don't have to worry about safety issues. It can be equipped with side walls, providing comprehensive protection for your wedding.

Atrium Wedding Tents

Atrium wedding tents are a great choice for couples who want to enjoy the snowy scenery but don't want to be exposed to the cold air.

This tent is made of wind and snow-resistant aluminum alloy frame and transparent PVC fabric. Specially using high-strength aluminum alloy material as the frame, this tent can withstand severe cold and snowstorms. In addition to the usual transparent PVC fabric, the sidewall material of this tent can also be made of vertical glass. This type of vertical glass has a much longer service life.

Two-Story Wedding Tents

If you have a large number of guests at your outdoor winter wedding and have a sufficient budget, these two-story wedding tents will be the perfect choice for you.

This large tent adopts a double-layer design, which provides ample space for your wedding. The upper floor is spacious and bright, ideal for holding ceremonies or setting up dining areas, while the lower floor is made into a comfortable lounge area or dance hall for guests to enjoy a happy time.

How to keep your tent warm?

When you choose to use a wedding tent, we recommend that you install heating facilities to ensure that guests can still enjoy the event comfortably in cold weather.

You can lay a layer of insulation mats inside the tent to reduce the heat loss from the ground and make the tent warmer. In addition, you can also choose to install a heating system. Whether it is a gas heater, solar heating system, or electric heating system, we can provide customized solutions according to your preferences and needs to ensure that your wedding tent is still warm in cold weather.

Tips for an Outdoor Winter Wedding

Cold weather also brings some challenges to outdoor winter wedding planning. To make your outdoor winter wedding both romantic and warm, we provide you with the following intimate suggestions.

Welcome Guests Session

When guests enter the wedding venue, they will be happy to see a warm scene. If you want to set up a warm reception area, you can set up a large chandelier or wall lamp at the entrance, and choose a warm yellow tone to add a sense of warmth to the entire area.

In addition, you can also prepare some hot drinks and snacks to let guests feel your warm hospitality. At the same time, you can play soft music to let guests wait for the wedding to begin in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.

Wedding Ritual Part

In the cold winter, a long outdoor ceremony may make guests feel uncomfortable.

First, you can find out what parts can be simplified. For example, lengthy speeches can be shortened appropriately, leaving only the most sincere and touching parts. Second, you can creatively arrange some short and meaningful ceremony segments. For example, you can design a short vow or love declaration, allowing the newlyweds to express their love for each other in the presence of their relatives and friends.

Dining Session

If you choose a wedding tent, you can arrange the meal in the tent. You can set up warm lights and comfortable seats in the tent so that guests can feel the warmth of home while enjoying the food. Besides, hot dishes are essential in winter.

When you consider choosing a main course, you can not miss the classic grilled steak, which is tender and juicy and will bring you a feast on the tip of your tongue. In addition, you can have delicious seafood pasta, add cream or tomato sauce, so that you can enjoy the freshness of seafood.

Entertainment Session

To let the guests have a good time at the wedding, you can arrange some indoor games and interactive sessions.

For example, you can prepare some interesting questions about the newlyweds and let the guests raise their hands to answer. Those who answer correctly can get exquisite small gifts. In addition, if you choose a wedding tent, you can also set up a small dance floor and sound equipment in the tent so that the guests can dance to cheerful music.

Costume Select

The bride can choose a wedding dress with warm properties, such as velvet, wool, and other materials, to ensure that it can keep beautiful while keeping out the cold. The groom can choose a suit or coat with good warm properties.

For the guests, remind them to dress warmly, and it is recommended to wear warm items such as thick coats, scarves, and gloves. At the same time, you can encourage guests to incorporate winter elements into their clothing, such as wearing winter accessories and choosing warm-colored clothes.

Pros and Cons of Outdoor Winter Wedding

We have discussed how to plan an outdoor winter wedding. So, what are the attractions of an outdoor winter wedding? What are the issues that need to be paid attention to? Next, let's find the answers to these questions.


In winter, every snowflake seems to be a blessing sign from nature, adding a special romance and warmth to your love story. Let’s explore the many benefits of an outdoor winter wedding.

Off-season discounts: Since winter is the off-season for weddings, many wedding venues and suppliers may offer off-season discounts. This means that couples can enjoy high-quality services and facilities while saving money. This undoubtedly adds appeal to winter outdoor weddings.

Taking some beautiful photos: Winter outdoor weddings are a favorite of photographers. Snowflakes, ice crystals, and snow-covered trees are all excellent elements for shooting. These beautiful photos will become your eternal memories and make your love story more touching.


Before deciding to hold an outdoor wedding in winter, couples need to understand and consider these potential disadvantages and take appropriate measures.

Unstable weather: The weather in winter is unpredictable and may encounter severe weather such as rain and snow. Therefore, the newlyweds should pay close attention to the weather forecast and prepare countermeasures in advance.

Cold and uncomfortable: The cold climate in winter may make guests feel cold and uncomfortable. To alleviate this discomfort, you need to consider providing heating equipment or warm food and beverages.

Short daylight: The daylight hours in winter are relatively short, which means that the time for wedding activities will be limited. To ensure the smooth progress of the wedding, the newlyweds need to plan the time in advance and arrange the wedding process reasonably.


Winter outdoor weddings allow couples to exchange vows in the beauty of nature and show their unique taste and creativity. To make the winter outdoor weddings more perfect, it is recommended that you consider using a wedding tent.
