Winter is a magical and enchanting time of year when the landscape transforms into breathtaking crisp white scenes. But how do you make the most out of beautiful winter weddings? Julieann from Julieann Beads talks us through her top tips.

Winter gowns

Stand out from the icy background in a wedding dress with statement sleeves and spectacular glittering embellishments – or maybe opt for an on-trend coloured bridal gown. Brides Ivory Foam Diamante Rose & Black Bow Wedding Posy Bouquet ú49.95  (3)

Winter warmers

Glittering maids

Mirror the magnificent wonderland around you and put your girls in beautiful bridesmaid’s dresses that are shades of shimmering silver, cool blue or deep midnight.

Snowy cakes

Wedding cakes trimmed with diamanté or ribbons in winter colours look amazing, or glittery cake toppers and cascades of snowflakes look sensational, too. Cupcakes with white filigree wrappers or snowball cake pops are perfect as Winter wedding favours. £POA Hi_res09

Light up your day

With wonderful winter light and starry snowy nights a winter wedding is the perfect time to turn up the light on your big day. Think tea lights in silvery holders, candelabras festooned with crystal swags, lanterns, twinkling backdrops, sparklers, fireworks and flaming torches.

Step out in icy style

Cool blue shoes with silver features will suit this theme perfectly, and double up as your ‘something blue’ too. Bridal boots with faux fur trimming make a cosy alternative.
