A snowy white landscape, festive decorations, and a warming indoor reception all combine to create truly special winter weddings. While most people dream of a warm wedding at the height of summer, getting married in the winter months can provide you with a unique day that will be remembered for years by your guests. So, if you’re planning a winter-themed wedding, here are some tips you need to bear in mind.
Select your colors wisely
Regardless of the season, selecting the right color palette is super important for the perfect wedding theme. Essentially, it needs to be one of the first decisions that you make. In terms of winter weddings, look for inspiration in the great outdoors. Icy white tones are an ideal fit, while light blues and silvery greys are also great options. You can then contrast these colors with darker greens that will beautifully complete the iconic winter wonderland look that you’re going for. As soon as you’ve settled on your preferred color palette, it’s time to work on the other aspects of your big day, such as the invitations and centerpieces.
Embrace the season
When it’s time to plan the menu for your big day, embracing the season will help you come to a decision. The winter season is made for comfort food that is warming and rich, and there is so much choice when it comes to putting together the menu for your guests. Why not keep things traditional with a succulent turkey and cranberry appetizer? You can then pair it with a spicy mulled wine before rounding things off with a glass of Baileys, which is the perfect winter drink. After all, there are so many options for your winter menu when you embrace the season, and be sure to check out Instagram and Pinterest for some more inspiration.
Bring the outside inside
It might be too cold to stand outside during a winter wedding, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the great outdoors. To create a winter atmosphere at your reception, there’s no reason why you can’t bring some of the outdoors into your venue. There are so many ways to make your celebrations more festive, be it with the use of holly or mistletoe, for example. Christmas trees are another great example and will add a beautiful scent to the indoor space at the same time. You could also enhance your table decorations with berries and holly, which is a dreamy feature for any winter wedding.
Choose the right dress
There’s no doubt that the most important part of your big day is the dress that you wear as you walk down the aisle. The good news is that there are so many gorgeous styles to choose from for winter weddings. One such example is this beautiful Long Sleeve Bridal Wedding Dress with Embellishment in White.
