5 Tips for LA Winter Weddings
From yummy foods to amazing locales/destinations all within driveable distance to wonderful weather 350 days out of the year, getting married in Los Angeles is cinch.
That is mostly true except when you’re planning for a chic and affordable wedding during cold winter season and El Nino is scheduled to make an unwelcomed visit- then panic sets in.
Lucky for you, we have some helpful tips to get you through your planning.
Pick an eclectic indoor location for your blank canvas
Gent and Bonnie (pictured) got married at Downtown Los Angeles Arts District creative space- Kesspro Studio. LA’s Arts District is an up and coming destination full of artist lofts, creative spaces and interesting architecture/art on every corner. It’s no wonder that this is LA’s newest IT neighborhood to host an event.
Picking Downtown for a wedding venue maybe a non-traditional choice, however it is super central to incoming guests, great visual stimulation to add to the vibe of the wedding and most of all- there are so many affordable and modern indoor spaces available to rent at minimal restrictions. Our team loved hanging out at Kesspro Studios. Located in an old warehouse, the space provides an urban edge bursting with amazing color and character; the perfect canvas for a dream wedding.

Statement-making details that warms up your guests
No matter how big or small your weddings, it’s always about the details that matter. Pick features of the wedding decor (whether functional or not) that adds a visual impact to the space.
You may not have a million bouquets of flowers on every table, but picking rental accent pieces that pop such as a fun modern heat lamp or modern fire pit can be a cost saving decision that may even look cooler at the space. Take this beautiful giant lamp-like heat lamp available for rent at your standard party rental suppliers.
Additionally, if oversized heatlamps are not your style- go with simpler executions such as having customized blankets/throws and slippers for your guests to keep cozy in case they are feeling the chill. This can even be a fun take home gift for them to cherish the experience by. You can even throw in a little heat pack if it’s super chilly or a personalized Uber code card for those who taxied to the location.
Hot comfort foods made-to-order
Hiring your favorite Food Truck to serve hot, made to order and delicious food will warm up any guests and make them forget about the cold weather.

Keep it Personal and Intimate
No wedding is complete without some aspect of personalization to add warmth. Add activities and interest areas within the space- i.e. Photo Booths, Photo Gallery Corner of the couple’s journey together.
