If you’re planning a winter wedding, we have plenty of hints and tips to help get you started. There’s plenty of scope for you to play around with themes and ideas, plus the colder months lend themselves perfectly to elegant and romantic weddings.
Decorate Your Winter Wedding With these Decorative Ideas
Start with candlelight for a simple way to create a warm and romantic atmosphere. When teamed with gilded mirrors and gold hurricane vases you’ll achieve a beautiful glistening and glamorous effect for each tabletop.
Rich and luxurious colours and textures also work well this season. Try plush velvet serviettes, sequin table runners (get one in rose gold right here) and deep burgundy and navy accents. For subtler supporting colours, try shades of taupe, antique white and natural linen.
If your venue has a selection of tables and chairs available to use, or you’ll be hiring them in yourselves, the warm tones of dark woods will enhance the rest of your decorations to best effect at this time of year.
You might associate the sweet fragrance and pretty colours of flowers with summer weddings, but they are absolutely as essential in the colder months, too. Again, keeping to a colour scheme of opulent, jewel-like tones will add the warmth and grandeur that makes a winter wedding feel truly magical.
Add Some Greenery
Garlands of greenery add natural texture and look especially good in the wintery half-light when paired with the silvery blue shades of eucalyptus. You’ll spend more time indoors, so use garlands to highlight your venue’s amazing features, like a sweeping staircase or a fireplace.
With early nightfall, a winter wedding is the perfect call for sparklers. Hand these to your guests to use when you and your new husband make your big entrance. When it comes to wedding sparklers, bigger is always better, you don’t want your guests standing around with a small dead sparkler. Buy some giant wedding sparklers here.
