We will reveal to you just below that… You will be charmed !
A wine of honor user-friendly around a delicious mulled wine

Long live the candles and the lighted garlands for the decoration of the wedding
In the absence of a floral decoration, lights candles, light strings and lanterns come to establish the full heat required by the cold in the reception hall and even outside, if you’re thinking about installing a small cozy corner to take the air. You can install big armchairs in faux leather, or large beanbags around space heaters outside that you have thought of renting. As for the odor of the flowers, they are more fragrant and heady in sets of pot-pourri than fresh. But to those who were unaware, the vegetation is mostly not in its flowering period in the middle of winter… which complicates the composition of the bouquets with the obvious shortage of flowers, unlike in the spring.
A look in winter and glamour to the bride will

In addition, if the date is getting too close to Christmas or the end of the year, guests are likely to be used elsewhere, in their families, without being able to be free.
Small savings on the drinks of the wedding but not on the heating
The savings in cooling will certainly be notable. In the summer, the bar of sodas and other have cooling is robbed. In the winter, it is better to build on a stand of hot drinks, to warm the throat, the hands and the hearts of the guests. Why not think of a bar with coffees, teas or hot chocolates ? By contrast, small flat on the note of heating and lighting which might be quite salty. The dance hall, the church, the reception, will have to be sufficiently tiédies to ensure that guests feel at their ease, and remain as late as they can.
