Here at The Cove we know a thing or two when it comes to Weddings... and we wanted to make planning your BIG day as effortless, affordable and EPIC as possible, so we are sharing a few insider tips on how to save up to and over 50% on your Wedding when you Wed at The Cove in Jervis Bay.
Our one and only biggest TIP is get married in Winter. Yep, you heard us right and you might think we are a little crazy.. but its true, just hear us out!
The weather in Winter is the BEST; there is less rainfall in Winter than any other season on the south coast. The days are usually still warm with tops of 20+ and averaging in the mid teens. The days are blue and sunny but not stinkin' hot. At night the temperatures can be cooler but it is the perfect opportunity to have fire pits at your wedding and Winter opens a world of styling opportunities.
Think about what you want to wear; the fashion, style and accessories! You'll be super comfortable and warm in Winter wearing that stunning bridal gown you've been dreaming of and can accessorise with a faux fur shawl or coat, the groom can feel damn fine in that suave suite styled to the nines. Plus your hair and make up sits in place perfectly and lasts sooo much longer.
Friends and family are more available in Winter. You don't have to think about if they're going to be able to attend, unlike in Summer when everyone has something going on.. trips, holidays and other weddings that you have to compete with. And if we are honest, EVERYONE needs a good Winter getaway.
Its all about YOU
Enjoy the white sand to yourself and quietness of the low season, as the surrounding coastal villages are sleepy. There's no traffic or crowds!
You Get TOP pick of your Wedding Vendors, as you're not competing with 50 other weddings in the area; think about what photographer, videographer, florist, stylist, food vendor, hair and make up artist you want. Its slow, everyone is calmer, and they have more time to give you that little extra attention. Not to mention rates can be lower in Winter - so ask!
Winter oooooozes those romantic vibes. Picture it; Fire pits roaring, baskets scattered around with blankets rolled into them, perfect for cuddling together. Dancing beneath the Winter Moon, starry sky and fairy lights, with the coastal breeze to cool you off. Fine wine, mulled cider and hot cocoa to sip on. Warm hearty food to fill bellies and a food cart with "Make your own Smores" for dessert. Then there is the lush cushions, candles and rugs. Waking to a rich warm coffee or cup of tea by the sea, crisp breeze, salt in the air as you hold hands and watch the sun rise together. Oh Winter.. you're by far the most romantic of seasons.
Yep, flowers are seasonal and when it comes to your wedding, your bouquet and florals will depend on the time of year.. and just quietly, Winter Blooms are some of the best! and we have gathered a few to show you.
