Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hardy Souls planning to be betrothed in Ye Ol Connecticut in the winter months from November til March.
Yes winter is fast approaching us, and if you are indeed planning a winter wedding in the Nutmeg state be sure to prepare. A great website to explore for help in coordinating the efforts is Connecticut-weddings.net You can peruse the site and link to other sites by a click of your mouse. But first, some advice that this examiner has experienced over the years.
1) Have alternative plans, just in case the winter weather prohibits the ceremony from actually taking place on the blessed, and selected day of your nuptials. 2) If the weather predicts an 18″ blizzard on the day of your vows, consider contacting the officiant earlier in the week to hold a private ceremony, which can be re-enacted later. This will allow you to be legally married just in case you or the officiant can’t make it to the ceremony, due to weather conditions. 3) Make sure that your receception hall will be able to accomodate your needs just in case of an ice or snow storm. This includes both food and lodging. 4) Plan on alternative transportation methods if the weather turns foul. This examiner has experienced limousines stuck in two feet of snow unable to make it to the bride. 5) Have the floral arrangements delivered early. It is safer to have the flowers arrive early than not at all. 6) And lastly, don’t panic, but prepare as winter can put dampers on any planned New England wedding.
