Winter is the slower season for weddings BUT it’s a wonderful, and in our opinion, overlooked time of year to get married. The scenery is magical, the decor is unique and there is love in the wind during the holidays. We love a winter wedding, regardless of its popularity. In fact, our owners, Kim & Whit Hanks’ got married during this season and Kim is joining us to share her experience and absolute love of her winter wedding! Keep reading…

UNIQUE STYLING POTENTIAL
Weddings during the winter tend to be more unique and stand out among your other seasonal events; from decor to ceremony spaces. During winter at Camp Lucy, enjoy ambiance from our Ian’s Chapel fireplace, twinkle lights under Sacred Oaks that give a nod to the holiday season, or stay warm inside one of many inside Event Halls on property.
NO PLAN B’S
During the Fall and Spring seasons, rain plans are usually accounted for in case of the unexpected. But during the winter season, the weather is expected and there usually isn’t much of a need for a ‘plan b’ when a beautiful tent is involved.
DATES & VENDOR FLEXIBILITY
One of the biggest benefits to scheduling during the colder seasons is not having to compete for vendors and dates that may be booked up already due to the busier season.
As the old saying goes, ‘Everything is bigger in Texas’ such as the bugs and their overpopulation during the warmer months. No need to worry about flies, mosquitoes, or ants. Enjoy a bug-free wedding and just one less thing to worry about when planning for your big day.
NO GUEST WEDDING FATIGUE
Give your guests peace of mind when responding to your invitation without the worry of clashing with other weddings on their calendars. Guests won’t be overwhelmed with ‘wedding fatigue’.
EXPLORE DIFFERENT FASHION
From coats, and shoes to hats, new styles are endless during winter and can be a way of glamming a layered look without the ‘sweat’.
Explore warm cocktails for you and your guests such as spiked hot chocolate, Irish coffees, or anything involving whipped cream! Your guests will indulge in a seasonal libation while warming up their hands and stomachs.
