Park City, Utah

Best known for hosting the Sundance Festival every January, Park City, Utah also makes for a fantastic winter wedding destination. The snow season lasts from November to April with December and January receiving the heaviest snowfall. Since Park City has been the chosen wedding destination for many celebrities, there is no dearth of luxury hotels or wedding venues here.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Lanzarote might not be your typical winter wedding destination but it definitely has a lot to offer, right from sun-kissed beaches to dramatic volcanoes. That's right, you will find yourself surrounded by magnificent volcano peaks as you walk down the aisle. Not to mention that you can make it a trip for the whole family with rejuvenating Lanzarote holidays after your wedding.

Ice Hotel, Sweden

One of the oldest of its kind, the Ice Hotel in Sweden has something of a star-attraction with its beautiful wedding chapel made of ice. The chapel is open from December till April and can accommodate close to 40 people. The best part is that you can spend your wedding night admiring the staggering beauty of the Northern Lights.

Lapland, Finland

If your idea of a perfect wedding involves travelling on a sled pulled by a reindeer and spending your wedding night in an igloo, you will instantly fall in love with Lapland. Making arrangements for a wedding is fairly easy and there are a few chapels made of snow and ice. Engulfed in a thick blanket of snow, Lapland looks like somewhere right out of a fairytale.

Vermont, New England

Snowfall, warm fireplaces, snowmobiling, cosy cottages – these are just some of the things you can expect from a winter wedding at Vermont. This city in New England is famous for its exquisite wedding venues and the many facilities they offer to their guests. Just imagine sipping a cup of hot cocoa by the fireplace as you watch flakes of snow kiss the ground outside.

Winter is well and truly here but there’s still time to start planning your splendid winter wedding. To get a good deal, make sure that you check all the holiday comparison sites to look for the best wedding packages on offer.
