Winter Weddings can be warm and delightful.
In other parts of the country, winter weddings can be problematic. Cold weather limits clothing choices. Snowstorms mean guests can’t come. And outside weddings are completely out of the question, but not necessarily in Raleigh.
But here in Raleigh where the average winter temperatures run in the low- to mid-50’s and snowfall is a meager 4 inches annually, winter can be the perfect season for your nuptials. And just like in spring, summer, and fall, J&J Tent Rentals provides all of the rental services you need to make your event perfect whether you’re having an indoor or outdoor event.
What Issues Should You Prepare For with a Winter Wedding?
Winter Weather in Raleigh?
For many people, Raleigh presents a great happy medium when it comes to weather. New residents coming from northern climates love that we offer temperate winter weather yet still get to enjoy the traditional change of seasons. Snow comes, but it’s usually just a dusting that’s gone within a day Instead, we enjoy a nice long stretch of mild weather that really makes up for the high heat and sticky humidity of the summer months.
What are Some Great Raleigh Winter Wedding Venues?
Raleigh has tons of options that provide a warm, inviting atmosphere for you wedding. How about the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham which offers an elegant setting on the campus of Duke University with two outdoor spaces and an indoor ballroom? Or the Umstead Hotel and Spa with two indoor and one outdoor event space in a gorgeous wooded setting?
No matter the venue, look for rooms with beautiful views of our evergreen pines and holly. Or for historic venues featuring cozy, stone fireplaces and natural wood floors. Take advantage of our mild winter weather. Choose a site with outside options where J&J’s walled tents and heaters can make the space elegant and comfortable.
Planning A Wedding Around the Holidays
With a wedding in any part of the country, you’ll want to be aware of peak holiday dates, of course. December is a particularly busy time as venues usually book up for corporate holiday parties. Plus, guests who are already overly-frazzled from the holidays may be more enthusiastic about a wedding invite for January or February. In addition, winter is a non-peak season for weddings, which translates into potential discounts for you.
Always remember to look for the best value when soliciting quotes for your event! Great service is always worth more than the cheapest price.
Winter Wedding Colors
You can go in one of two directions when it comes to color – opt for crisp, sparkly whites. Or warm tones like deep reds, browns, and spruce greens. While many wedding venues provide linens in basic white and off-white, J&J Tents has a full spectrum of colors as well as chair and tableware upgrades to match the style and theme of your wedding.
