June weddings are very popular and weddings on the beach are in great demand, but winter weddings are wonderful. Here are just a few destinations that are perfect if you are looking to exchange vows with a snow-covered backdrop:

Lake Placid, New York: Winter in New York is a magical time. With a diverse landscape of plains and mountains, those who are adventurous or looking for something relaxing can find the perfect venue at Lake Placid. Its closeness to the Adirondack Mountains serves for incredible views and chances for skiing and snowboarding after the reception. Some venues and lodges even give the option to get married on outdoor skating rinks.

Colorado: Colorado is known for its beautiful mountains and resort towns. For a great winter getaway, the slopes and lodges around Colorado offer for a fun wedding destination. Some towns to consider are Aspen and Vail. Both towns have a variety of venues that offer breathtaking views of the snowy plains, mountains, and twinkling lights of the towns below.

Switzerland: For an incredibly peaceful wedding reception, try flying outside the U.S. and visiting Switzerland. Some people say that time moves slower in the beautiful mountains, valleys, and quaint little towns this side of Europe. Locals are kind and caring, and venue workers are masters of hospitality. Those looking for an elegant affair can even schedule the ceremony in one of the country’s beautiful castles.

Vermont: Skiers rejoice; Vermont is a paradise for an exciting wedding weekend of hitting the slopes. There are 20 alpine ski resorts, 30 cross-country touring centers and 7,300 acres of alpine terrain throughout the state, giving you pick of the litter for an atypical wedding adventure. If you’re not into skiing but want to have a wedding here, fear not! Sleigh rides, spa treatments, and dog sled races can still make your wedding a trip to remember.

Canada: If you’re looking for a destination wedding without having to travel too far from home, try visiting our friendly neighbors to the north. Like other winter resorts, the country offers a wide selection of slopes for skiing and snowboarding, resorts for relaxing and staying warm, and hospitable locals, but with an added foreign charm. Try planning your wedding around Winterlude, the Ottowa winter festival, or during the Quebec Winter Carnival.
