While many people scramble to get married during the warmer months, tying the knot in winter can actually be surprisingly romantic. It might be cold and frosty outside, but the perfect indoor setting will warm hearts and make everyone glow with happiness.
Winter weddings are typically cosy and romantic. So here are five top wedding trends for the coldest time of the year.
When it comes to winter wedding day decorations, fairy lights are a must. Twinkly, pretty and elegant, they can transform any wedding venue by adding an extra sparkle to your big day. Think gorgeous hanging installations, twinkling candle displays and centrepieces that bring each and every table to life. You can even wrap fairy lights around flowers or bowls of seasonal fruit to create an enchanting environment.
Hot Drinks Bar
Instead of a cocktail station, why not have a fancy hot drinks bar instead? From rich hot chocolates topped with marshmallows and cream to the finest coffees, this is something your guests are sure to love. You could also go down the warm eggnog route or, if you want to add a drop of alcohol, serve up big cups of deliciously brewed mulled wine.
Complement the fairy lights with natural, earthy décor that celebrates the winter season perfectly. Think pinecone name card holders, wooden log table numbers, holly and ivy wreaths wrapped around candles and mistletoe for all the love birds. How about also adding cones, berries and fern around your Wedding cake?
Choosing a seasonal bouquet for the bride and bridesmaids is a great idea and a popular choice for winter weddings. Berries, red roses and rustic manzanitas are perfect for creating a festive vibe and they look beautiful when paired with white flowers and pale green foliage. Bridesmaids can also wear gold or red to add rich, warming tones to your big day.
Winter Wedding Dresses
Feel like a princess on your wedding day by choosing a dress with sleeves. These are hugely popular at the moment and will help you feel like a glamorous Snow Queen. If you want to add a touch of seasonal glamour while ensuring you stay warm on a cold day, opt for a faux fur wedding cape. These can be gently placed over your dress for outdoor photographs and will keep you cosy if you need to travel between venues.
