Dude Ranch Weddings: Covered in White...Winter Destination WeddingsFor many, a destination wedding means heading away to the beach, walking barefoot on the sand to exchange nuptials. But for some, true romance is alive when snow falls from a starlit sky, Christmas lights twinkle, and the trees are your canopy. A winter destination wedding to a guest ranch may be the perfect way for you to say “I do” and start your marriage off on the right foot.No matter how old you are, there’s an undeniable magic during the winter holiday season. And snow and lights just enhance that magic. Now imagine adding to that the wedding party making a grand entrance on a horse-drawn carriage. The bride dressed in white with a flowing train walking down a path of freshly fallen snow surrounded by the smell of pines and flowers. It’s a little slice of heaven for the couple looking for a fairly tale beginning to their happily ever after.
A number of guest ranches offer winter destination wedding packages, with the goal of providing all of that magic for you, your family, and friends. And because ranches are away from the hustle and bustle, everyone will be focused on you and your special day. You may choose to exchange your loving testaments under the stars or in the lodge’s great room, but either way, the feelings and memories will last a lifetime.When should you start planning? Well, if you’re considering a winter destination wedding, you should start planning sooner rather than later. Of course, your guests will need to clear their schedules, you’ll need to find just the right location, and you’ll have to figure out all of the logistics. While the ranch owners will be able to facilitate much of it, you’ll still need to obtain your marriage license and coordinate flowers, music, and the cake. Check with your ranch of choice about catering the event, since they are well equipped to provide meals to a number of visitors. The more time you have to prepare, the less you’ll have to worry when the big day arrives.
