Winter may be the furthest thing from our minds right now, but anyone planning a wedding knows it’s only a few blinks away. For couples dreaming of a winter-white wedding ceremony dripping in history, luxury and romantic architecture, Dundas Castle in Scotland has an offer you can’t refuse.

Host your family and friends for a winter wonderland celebration at the exclusive 5-star venue during the rare, special discounted rate. Welcoming the first weddings of 2019, Dundes Castle offers a discounted rate of €2,019 in honor of the New Year — or $2,361, but that ruins a bit of the New Year ring.

The discount comes directly off the facility fee and includes all the trappings of a Scottish castle wedding. Guests are welcomed by bagpipes playing upon arrival, luxury details and service throughout the entire event, concluding with a sparkling fireworks show.

Special discounts benefit couples booking their castle wedding in January and February while receiving complimentary glasses of bubbly for each guest as part of the deal. The discounted deal also includes a buy two, get two free canapé specially designed by Prestige Venues and Events caterings. Guests follow the bagpipe players to dinner and enjoy live music and a fireworks finale.

Essentially, with this limited-time offer, couples save while still planning the same epic winter wedding on the Scottish Highlands. The Winter Package includes weddings Jan. 1–Feb. 28, 2019, available on bookings made from July 1, on, but only while venue dates are available.

Couples looking for a civil, religious or humanist ceremony find Dundas Castle open for business. Enjoy a traditional Scottish castle wedding complete with 15th-century charm of Auld Keep and incredible elegance. Guests explore decadently decorated rooms and feel transported to another time. Feel like royalty and set the scene for some unbelievable photos.

For couples expecting larger weddings, up to 200 guests, the Pavilion Marquee offers a spacious venue, or bundle up and host your guests in the outdoor courtyard — think Outlander meets Frozen.

Although tucked away on 400 acres of rolling countryside landscape, Dundas Castle is just a 15-minute drive from Edinburgh Airport. Guests can easily fly in and make accommodations with you or opt for downtown Edinburgh, just 25 minutes away.
