Where are my Northeast winter brides (past & present) at?! I’m planning on getting married January 2023 in NH and am just curious how your wedding went? Obviously our winters in New England are very well known for their intensity and unpredictability BUT how many of you actually had bad enough weather that impacted either your guest attendance OR your wedding being cancelled/rescheduled all together?


And if you’re planning on a winter wedding to come like myself, how many of you are crazy like me and praying for at least a little snow for gorgeous photos on your big day?!🤪

    My coworker had a winter wedding. There was a snow storm and the attendance was down at least 1/3 for no shows. They had a great time anyway but lost a lot of $ paying for people that didn’t come despite rsvp’d yes.

    We had friends get married in MA in February a few years back. They didn’t have bad weather on the day of but a storm we got earlier that week meant a lot of cancelled flights for the bride’s family/friends coming from the Midwest. Her MOH got in around midnight the night before instead of two days before the wedding. Something to consider if you have a lot of guests who would be traveling.

    Hi fellow Northeaster! Not me, but my friend had her wedding a few years ago in March during a Nor'easter. She still had great attendance, but some people did end up backing out due to the weather and being uncomfortable driving. We still had an absolutely fabulous time.

    Snow photos are GORGEOUS. So fingers crossed you get some beautiful snow for your day!

    I'm getting married in PA on March 12, 2022. I am PRAYING for a sunny, bright warm-ish day. I've always dreamed of a late spring wedding but that wasn't in the cards for us. I'm pretty sure I will cry and be devastated if there is any snow or rain on my wedding day. Its one of only 3 things that could truly ruin my wedding day

    I had snow for my January Massachusetts wedding. It was truly magical. Also, we still had the Christmas decor up at the church so we saved a ton on alter flowers. They used red and white, which worked perfectly with my winter love theme.

    We are used to driving in snow, so attendance was the same.

    Yes! My venue has winter decor as well that we will get to utilize and I’m stoked for the cost savings haha I’m hoping that with January being so cold & dry that any snow we get will be light and fluffy versus the wet, slick, icy crap we get later on in March as the temperatures start to rise!🤞🏽🤞🏽

    What month was your coworkers wedding in if you don’t mind me asking? I feel like the types of snowstorms we get vary depending on what month they are in (Jan is usually light and fluffy because it’s so cold vs March is wet, heavy and freezing rain because the temps are warmer).

    I’m getting married February 2023 in NJ! Super nervous about a major snowstorm, totally dreaming of just a light dusting! As long as we don’t have any major storms, I’ll be thrilled
