Waterford Wednesday: Winter Events

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
Although it’s been pretty chilly for the last couple of weeks, today is officially the first day of winter! This time of the year is considered a slower season for many in the event industry, but with holiday parties and winter weddings, linens are always needed! Though not technically in the months that make up “wedding/event season,” winter events can actually take a lot more planning than one might think. So today we’ve rounded up some brief tips to help make sure your winter event goes off without a hitch!

As we mentioned above, summer and spring months are considered the busy wedding/event season, but it’s important to rent and reserve your vendors early in the winter months as well! Not only are there a lot of holiday parties happening around the winter months, but you should also consider the fact that your potential vendors may have varying hours over the holiday season!

With winter being one of the busiest travel times during the year, it’s crucial that you send out your invitations early! If you want certain people at your event (especially close family and friends!), then this is a necessary step to take! Your guests will appreciate the advanced notice, and they will have plenty of time to work their plans and schedules around your event!

Prepare for Weather!

The last thing that you want to worry about during the planning of your winter event is weather, but it’s something that definitely needs to be in the forefront of your mind. Depending on the area you live in, weather (especially during the winter months!) can be very unpredictable, so staying in the know is key. Preparing and creating a backup plan for unpredictable weather, along with the delays and cancellations that come with it, will save you from a stressful panic should it happen the day of your event!
