“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.”

Why the trilling of Christmas songs in September, you ask? Because it snowed in Whistler this week. The peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains saw a healthy dusting of the white stuff, and while we know it’s too early to get all excited….the heck with it, darn it, we’re now officially excited about Winter weddings!

It’s no secret that while we love all of Whistler’s seasons, and every season brings its varying joys and beauties here on Planet Planning, Winter weddings have the power to really get us all fired up. After all, we are blessed to live in one of the continent’s most amazing Winter Wonderlands. Winter in Whistler is magical, like being inside a vintage snowglobe.

Yes sir, if we know anything in Whistler, it’s how to ‘do’ Winter. We are experts at delivering a Winter experience that’s second to none.

And how about those vintage inspirations? Winter more than any other season, offers up endless opportunities to indulge our love of all things retro. In our treasure trove of decor items available for rental we have fabulous antique items like skis, snowshoes and skates – just ask to see our LookBook!

We love the colours of Winter too – not just white and silver but the amazing pops of colour against a snowy backdrop; ditch the pastels and throw yourself into stronger palettes of purples, red, burgundy and aubergine, dark blues, metallics and gold!

How about lighting? Your reception venue with a wintery dark night beyond the windows cries out for masses of candles and sparkling lights that would be wasted on a light summer evening in July. Go crazy, your guests will feel like they stepped into a  Dr Zhivago movie set.
