If you’re planning your wedding for early spring, you don’t have to sacrifice the comfort of your guests at Mother Nature’s whim. No matter what weather the season brings you, or what your venue looks like, your guests can stay cozy for the duration if you use just a few of the tricks we have up our sleeves. Any of these ideas will be certain to warm up your event at Chandler’s Gardens. While we always hope for that rare, sunny day, March weddings can be tricky. Don’t let the weather get the best of your guests!
Nothing is cozier than a warm mug in your hands. You can ensure your guests keep warm by using beverage stations to keep their bellies full. Greeting guests at the door with a warm beverage as they arrive for the ceremony will keep more than just their hands warm. Especially if you offer both alcoholic and nonalcoholic options. Think about trying a spiced cider or a hot toddy. If you think your event will get cooler as the evening progresses, you can end the night with a coffee/cocktail/cocoa bar to send everyone off with something warm in their hands. Just don’t forget the yummy toppings!
You can gift your guests or wedding party items to help them feel their warmest throughout the day. Think about using matching pashminas for your bridal party or monogrammed blankets for your guests.
Incorporate some space heaters into your wedding design to keep your guests feeling their warmest. Portable propane heaters will easily keep a patio or enclosed tent at a comfortable temperature.
Choosing an indoor venue will of course keep your guests warm on a blustery winter day, but if an outdoor or barn receptions is what your dreams are made of you don’t have to limit yourself to a warm spring day. Just make sure you set up your location to best suit the weather of the month. Setting up a tent? No problem if you choose to get a fully enclosed one. You can even layer cozy textiles over the walls of your tent to help keep the temperature higher and feel cozier.
Your menu can help to keep your guests feeling toasty too. You can warm them up with passed appetizers like mini mugs of hot soup, or even a spicy bite like jalapeno poppers. Your dessert can even evoke coziness- using the flavors of the season like a warm cinnamon apple dish, or incorporate a fire pit for extra warmth and offer your guests some DIY smores.
These cool weather ideas will let your guests feel the warmth of your love, no matter the temperature.
