Winter Weddings On The Rise But Still Risky

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Winter weddings seem to becoming more and more popular, but getting married in the winter in Philadelphia can be a risk.

Gina Sole, owner of The Wedding Planner in Rittenhouse Square, says winter weddings seem to be gaining popularity:

“A lot of brides want to get married in the winter, just because they want to wear fur! Typically girls really, really love the winter fashions as far as wedding gowns go, so they’re willing to sort of risk having a big snowstorm!”

And the risk of getting married in the middle of a snowstorm is that your guests might not arrive:

“Lots of times it’s a huge issue with transportation and guests obviously not being able to make it sometimes in really bad weather.”

Her advice: seriously think about the season in which you get married:

“It makes for great pictures, but that’s about it.  Logistically, it’s a nightmare, pretty much.”

    Prenups are a must. They don’t say you don’t trust your partner but that you’re realistic. Only a fool wouldn’t get one. Marriage is a contract that ties your assets together, the romance and love is part of that, but at its core it’s a business merger.

    “it’s a nightmare pretty much.” Any time of the year. Look at the divorce rate across the country.Go to your local divorce court one day and look at the line. You think they were giving away free tickets to a sports game. Prenups, says you don’t trust your partner and alimony stinks. I choose to stay single and I’m having a ball.
