Winter Save the Dates

Winter weddings take place in December, January, and February. March is technically a spring month, but in much of the United States cold (or at least unpredictable) weather means a March wedding isn't often a top choice for engaged couples.

While these winter months are often the least popular times of the year to have a wedding (January is #1), they can be a perfect choice for a bride or groom for a few different reasons. First, if you're looking to save money on a venue booking in the wintertime is often the most affordable and availability is high. Second, you can beat the winter blues by going to a tropical location with a destination wedding. Finally, Christmas and New Years are less-than-ideal choices for big weddings, but for family weddings these dates can be the perfect choice for a wedding since family is often already scheduled to be together.

Winter save the dates often center on cold themes such as snow, snowflakes, evergreens, and ice. White, blue, silver and gold are popular color choices for cold-weather weddings. However, if you're opting for a Christmas wedding, then red, green, and gold is a fitting choice.

If you are having a winter wedding, it's best to send save the dates out 6-9 months in advance. That would mean mailing your winter save the date cards, postcards, or magnets anywhere from March to October, depending on your wedding date.
