Romantic Winter Wedding Inspiration


​Winter weddings can be unpredictable (who knows when a Nor’easter will roll into town), but off-season pricing makes them an appealing option in one of the country’s most expensive wedding markets. Of course, for cold-weather-loving couples, this time of year is more than just savings: Embracing the season brings tons of cozy, romantic touches and snowflake-inspired sparkle.

11. If a blizzard does hit, embrace it. It makes for the most romantic photos you’ll look back on for years to come.
