If you’re a bride or groom who’s planning a winter wedding, you’ll know how annoying the guest questions can get.
From festive wedding menu queries to fears of extreme weather, we’ve put together a list of all the annoying comments and queries you’ll have to deal with if you’re planning a wedding in the winter.
Are you serving a roast dinner?
No, just because my wedding is near Christmas, doesn’t mean everything has to be Christmas themed.
Is it an all-white colour scheme?
We might have an all-white colour scheme, or we might go with one of the other hundreds of colour choices available – either way, you’ll find out when you arrive.

Aren’t you worried people will double up your Christmas and wedding present?
Nope, as long as they don’t mind if we double up their starter and main course at the wedding? It’s just that they’re really close together too, and we thought we’d kill two birds with one stone. They won’t mind, right?
Actually, aren’t you worried your partner will double up your Christmas and anniversary presents?
So what if they do?
Won’t Christmas overshadow your wedding?

No one has money post-Christmas, aren’t you worried about getting cheap gifts?
Again, who cares? Not me.
Are you sure you want to get married at such a depressing time of year?
Yes, I’m sure. Anything else on your mind?

Is your dress long sleeved then?
You’ll find out when I wear my wedding dress, on my wedding day.

Does your venue have heating?
It’s the 21st century so yes, as in every other building you’ll visit in the UK, it will have central heating.
