‘Tis the season for winter weddings, and we love a magical winter wonderland to celebrate your marriage here at Wedding Ideas. However, there are some important rules of winter weddings that you should try and follow…


Wrap up!

Although you want to look gorgeous on your wedding day, chances are that during the wedding dress shopping you’re going to forget about the freezing temperatures. If you’re feeling chilly during your wedding it’ll spoil your day, so opt for a faux fur shrug or sparkly cardigan for a touch of fabulousness! This counts for your bridesmaids as well – you want them to enjoy your special day too.

Accessorise accordingly

Before you choose your accessories, make sure they’re suited for a winter wedding! You may have fallen in love with those glitzy, sequin stilettos but are they going to be practical for snow or ice? (Buy them anyway).

Experiment with colours

If you don’t fancy going for a typical colour palette of whites, reds and greens don’t be afraid to experiment! Bold, rich colours will still look amazing, and your wedding will look seriously unique…

Be inspired

If you’re struggling with how to decorate your wedding venue, be inspired by all things wintery! Pinterest will give you tons of ideas about how to create a magical, enchanting setting for your big day. Pinecones as place names, candles as centrepieces, Christmas pudding for dessert… the choices are endless!

Wedding insurance

Wedding insurance is a must-have – especially when it comes to winter weddings. Don’t let severe weather spoil your day, you’ll feel 100x better knowing you’ve got insurance if something does happen!

Don’t worry

If you’re panicking about torrential rain, snowstorms or blistering winds – DON’T! Once you’ve sorted your wedding insurance, there’s nothing you can do to change the weather, so don’t let it ruin your excitement in the lead-up to the big day.

Festive food

One of the best things about winter is the food that comes with it: hot chocolate, roast dinners, mulled wine! If you want to create a ‘festive feel’ to your wedding, be sure to include some traditional food and drink – your guests will love it!
