We love a winter wedding and our ideas for this year’s cold seasonal wedding will not disappoint. There’s a mix of elaborate and simple ideas for you to swoon over. Plus some quirky little details that most brides will most certainly always overlook.
A Dazzling Winter Bouquet
There are several ways to approach a winter bouquet; it just depends on your theme or choice of bridesmaid’s dresses to make the right choice. Go for an obvious winter theme with bright red berries, pine cones and sprigs of holly, or you can go down the natural white and cold blue hues route, that look as though they’ve been dusted with a spritz of fresh snow. Beautiful either way!
A Christmas Decoration
It may seem like an obvious idea if you’re planning a Christmas wedding then you definitely need to include the Christmas decorations! There are so many ways to do this, consider giving guests a little something for their trees as part of the wedding favors or it could be done in the reception decorations. The choices are endless; here are some of our favorite ideas.
The word ‘yum’ springs to mind! Make sure you offer a selection of sweet, winter goodies to impress guests and to energize them throughout the day. From hot chocolate to hot toddies, decadent macaroons and snowflake cookies, all of these ideas are a clever way to make your wedding stand out.
Pinecones are single handedly the best tool for a winter wedding, they don’t cost a penny, but still give you the wow factor. Of course you’ll need to get your hands a little dirty, but we promise it’ll all be worth it in the end. Consider using pinecones in your bouquets, on top of the cake, with the place cards, or as part of the bunting.
Festive Cake Toppers
Pinecones, snowmen, deer, berries, snowflakes, ok so the list is endless and that’s what we love about a cool winter wedding, the endless choice of gorgeous cake toppers. Here is a selection of our favorites.
Make sure your invitations give guests that Christmassy, wintery feel. Designs can be simple, with the use of calm colors, and consider using festive motifs, like snowflakes, Christmas trees, deer, or even a couple of cute penguins. Another way to get that wintery feel can be through the use of lace paper designs, twine, satin, a spritz of glitter or a diamante brooch for an uber glam look.
Wintery Gifts & Favors
There are so many amazing winter wedding gifts and favors, from hot chocolate in cute mason jars, tree decorations, lace cut boxes of yummy treats and so many more creative ideas. If you want to read more on this subject see here for the blog we wrote on this very topic last week.
Snowflakes are the ultimate wintery logo and you can use them on just about everything, they can be subtle or dominate a room, and what’s more is they can come in any color! Why would you not use a snowflake? Even just a teeny tiny one perhaps!
Do not forget to capture this gorgeous winter wedding on camera, make sure you hire your photography carefully and look at their style and ask to see their work portfolio to ensure they can achieve the look you’re going for. Make sure you clearly explain all of your ideas and let them share some of theirs.
