For most, getting married during the spring or summer seasons seems ideal; the sweet smell of flowers, sunshine illuminating the sky, and of course, the warm weather! Sure, this may seem appealing, but let’s not forgot about those opting for a winter wedding! When the right winter elements are combined, your wedding is sure to look like a wonderland!
Winter Wedding Attire
The majority of wedding dresses are designed with a strapless or sleeveless look, which may not be so ideal for the chilly weather! To add some flare to your gown, look for a wrap, shrug, cape, or dramatic coat that makes a statement. Don’t be afraid to take the plunge when it comes to adding color either!
Winter Wedding Locations
In order to truly set the mood for an intimate winter wedding, look for a venue that has a fireplace. Try to avoid a location with large windows in case a beautiful snowfall becomes replaced by a dreary rainfall. Also, be sure to check on the heating in your venue; many large churches may look extraordinary, but may be quite draft during the winter months.
Winter Wedding Flowers
Flowers can be one of the most difficult choices when it comes to planning your wedding. Depending on the season, you may opt for certain types. If you like silver or grey, silver-dollar eucalyptus mixed with white roses, football mums or lilies may do the trick. If you’re searching for a brighter color scheme, consider red roses with holly and pine-tree greenery.
Winter Wedding Décor
Centerpieces for a winter wedding can be absolutely stunning when designed properly. Line your tables with poinsettias or string white lights along the ceiling to imitate a snowfall. Add deep greens around candles to really make your venue shine!
Winter Wedding Favors
Get creative! A winter wedding is the perfect reason to give your guests something that they too would enjoy during the cold winter season. Perhaps a tin of spiced teas or hot cocoa, cookie cutters, ornaments, chocolates, snow globes, or even “snow cone” bath salts!
