But at the same time, these moments can get totally spoiled in case you do not pay attention to certain problems that a cold weather can create on your wedding. So, for all of you who are gearing up to get hitched this winter season, here are some disasters you must be geared up for. Fret not, we also have solutions for these problems.
If the temperature is harsh, then some guests might choose to skip the wedding. The children and elderly people can get affected if the entire setup of your wedding is in an open area. Furthermore, if the city gets foggy, then the chances of your guests being late also become high. Especially those coming from some other city might not even be able to reach at all due to cancelled or delayed flights or trains.
Though controlling the weather is not in your hand, ask the panditji to provide you with some more options beforehand (if possible). You would then have the option of picking the one when the temperature is expected to be pleasant. In case, you do not have much choice, then it is better to make indoor arrangements for the wedding. In case you make outdoor arrangements, then make sure you place a lot of bonfires to keep your guests warm.

You definitely would not want to have a runny nose or fever on your wedding day. So, just be sure to keep your immune system strong. Start taking all precautionary measures well before your wedding functions start.
Even if that means following all your grandma's tips of covering yourself up all the time or drinking warm water or tea, just follow everything religiously. Also, do not forget to consult your doctor to get the expert advice so as to prevent yourself from falling ill. Remember, it is the best day of your life, and spoiling it by falling sick is not really a good idea. So, if you are prone to fall ill during winter, it is better to postpone it to summer.
Start working on all the aspects related to wedding planning as soon as the date gets finalised. As winter weddings are very popular in India, getting a desired venue might be troublesome if you do not plan well in advance. You may also end up paying a lot more for the arrangements if the bookings are done at the last moment. Of course, nobody likes the wedding budget to go out of control. So, plan well in advance to save money.
