During the winter season, you can add layers and choose thicker fabrics to combat the cold, but in during the summer, you risk being overheated. Outdoor winter wedding photos are absolutely flawless if hot and sweaty wedding pictures are a concern.

Winter fashion and gowns can be glamorous. Wear long sleeves, or a strapless gown and accessorize with an embroidered coat, faux fur, or upper arm gloves. Get inspired by these Winter Wedding Gowns.

For the groom and groomsmen, it’s far more ideal weather for formal tuxes than the hotter months.



Winter weddings are unique, and give the wedding party more room to experiment with colour palettes, decor and theme.

The neutrality of the winter months complements a variety of shades from rustic to glamorous, so any colour will look flawless against winter foliage and make your wedding stand out.



When Kelowna’s mountains are covered in snow, they’re absolutely stunning, and make for gorgeous wedding photos.



After the wedding, take advantage of Kelowna’s winter activities and enjoy a winter wonderland for your honeymoon.
