5 Enchanting Reasons to Plan a Winter Wedding

We all hear about the excitement of “Wedding Season”. Typically taking place in the summer months, our calendars are occupied with weekends of weddings, showers, and other celebrations. Although we love peak season and all it brings, here at Pier B Resort Hotel in Duluth, MN we are even more enchanted by the winter wedding.

1. One of the main concerns we hear from couples about planning a winter wedding is the fear that weather may interrupt an outdoor ceremony or reception. A valid concern when planning one of the most special days of your life. Ceremonies can be moved indoors within 6 hours before the planned start time, giving you plenty of time to make the call. In addition to this, all onsite weddings do receive a discounted block of rooms so everyone can stay right on property! Friends and family can enjoy a winter weekend together to make memories all centered around your celebration.

2. More vendors are also available during the winter since it is in the “off season”. This could mean booking your top venue, florist, or musician who may be already fully booked during other times of the year. It could also mean more one on one time with those vendors to ensure even the littlest details. Along with more availability during this time, here at Pier B Resort Hotel, our room rental costs are lower between the months of November- April with other vendors in the area also offering off season pricing.

3. Winter in Duluth, MN is the perfect season to use beautifully rich and deep jewel tones along with classy textures like velvet. Bridesmaids gowned in emerald or burgundy play against the contrast of white snow elegantly, not to mention the added backdrop of Lake Superior’s deep blues. There is also the opportunity to add mood to your wedding day, with days being shorter in the winter, it creates more time for your photographer to play with lighting, enhancing the possibilities and variety to your wedding album.

4. Our team of experienced staff is here to make it easy to plan your important day – and come with amazing ideas of how to create your perfect winter wonderland wedding. Whether it’s a hot chocolate bar or outdoor fire pits just for your wedding guests. We are willing and excited to work with every couple to turn the wedding you have always envisioned into a reality.

5.They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year – for more reasons than you may think! While most are holding their weddings during the summer months, an isolated winter wedding causes no wedding fatigue. During this time people are actually often looking for a party. Making this a time special just for you and your partner.
