Winter weddings are not something particularly common in Buffalo. The fact that they are so uncommon is exactly why we love them! It allows us to get creative and truly think "outside of the box," something that After 5 Events is proudly known for.
When I think of winter, there are many images that flood my mind. I think of crackling fireplaces, lots of glitter and sparkle (both of inside and out), millions of candles, cozy fabrics and romantic cuddly evenings, the smell of cinnamon, comfort food and so much more!
Being that winter is such a time for reflection and romance, I consider it one of the most ideal times for a wedding.
Here are a few more bonuses for choosing a winter wedding:
1) DISCOUNTS - Many wedding vendors (including After 5 Events) offer discounts for winter weddings because it does not fall into Buffalo's typical wedding season.
2) Abundance of family - As you know, many families make special arrangements this time of year to travel and spend time together. Your wedding would be the perfect reason to get together and you won't have to worry about breaking anyone's summer vacation plans.
3) Romance - We have already touched upon the facts that the scenes, scents, and intimacy of the snowy season make the perfect backdrop for a stunning ceremony and reception. Even our friends at Phenomenon Events and Promotions agree that some of the most fantastic photography is captured during the winter months. Check them out at:
If traveling during your winter wedding day is a concern to you, I recommend choosing one location for both your ceremony and reception. We have a list of venues perfect for this request.
