Planning Your Winter Wonderland Wedding At Wicked Pony Ranch

May through October has traditionally been considered prime wedding season. That perception is changing as New Year's Eve, and winter weddings increasingly become a top wedding trend. Say hello to a winter wedding wonderland.

While midwest winters are known for grey skies and cold temps, many couples are leaning into that by choosing color pallets to match winter tones.

This blog will share some amazing ways the Wicked Pony Ranch can help you pull off a great winter wedding!

Wicked Pony Ranch’s Winter Wedding Sites

Ranked as one of the best wedding venues of 2022 by The Knot, Wicked Pony Ranch is the ideal place to host your winter wedding! With over 100 acres of land, Wicked Pony Ranch offers multiple ceremony spots and lodging options.

The Red Barn and the Saloon are our popular indoor ceremony sites and make the perfect location for winter and New Year's Eve weddings. Our indoor reception sites have central heating and cooling for added comfort! Then have your wedding party stay the night at the Lodge, which sleeps 14 people!

Prepare For the Missouri Winter Weather

Missouri winters are unpredictable. We get everything from sunny blue skies and crisp air to snow storms! So whether your wedding is outside or a mix of both–Wicked Pony Ranch can accommodate. Our indoor ceremony sites have central heating so guests can be comfortable.

Plan Your Winter Wedding Around The Holidays

If you’re planning to tie the knot in November, December or January, give your guests plenty of notice. The holidays are busy with people traveling all over to see family and friends. Aside from the holiday rush, many people do not travel in the winter, meaning more guest availability.

Lean Into The Winter Color Pallet

Winter tones are beautiful, and with winter weddings being trendy right now, there are a variety of color pallets not many have thought of.

The Christmas season, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day have unique color pallets. Think about leaning into a color palette that matches the holiday.

For additional guidance on executing your winter wedding, Wicked Pony Ranch offers event planning. Our Wedding Day Package and Weekend Wedding Package include two event planning sessions.

Don’t forget the decorations! Couples getting married at the Ranch can access gorgeous decorations from the Borrow Closet.
