Winter weddings can be a truly magical event for everybody involved. Weddings at all different times of the year have their pros and cons, but there’s something extra special about winter weddings. If you dream of having an enchanting winter wedding to look back on for years to come, some of these ideas might come in handy.
Use Holiday Inspired Chair Covers
Holiday inspired chair covers could be just what you need to turn your ceremony into a festive celebration. If you’re getting married close to Christmas and want to make the most of it, choose a Christmas colour scheme and incorporate things like this. Your guests will love it and it’ll get them into the festive spirit in no time!
As winter weddings are all about crisp whites and icy blues, consider carrying that on with your colour palette. You can make your entire wedding look like a fresh winter wonderland this way! Plus, cool colour palettes are classy and modern.
Include Plenty of Crystals and Sparkle
It goes without saying you need to include lots of crystals and sparkle. You can’t have too much of this when you’re throwing a winter wedding. Include sparkles on your shoes, bag, and other accessories. Make sure you have sparkle in your decor too. You could even consider doing this yourself to save money on your budget!
Arrive on a Horse Drawn Sleigh
What could be a more wintery way to arrive than on a horse drawn sleigh? You’ll feel like a real life ice queen.
Faux Fur and Cosy Textures
Including cosy textures will stop the venue from feeling too cold. You could drape faux fur throws over tables and chairs, and even include it with your own wedding party’s accessories.
Winter can be the perfect time to go bold with your bridal makeup. Why not make sure you stand out against the cool colour scheme with red lips?
A Snow Covered Forest Reception
If you’d like a theme for your reception, you can’t get much more magical than a snow covered forest. All of your guests will love celebrating in your very own winter wonderland.
Icicle Style Centerpieces
Many people use flowers for centerpieces, but they can be expensive. Instead, why not go for icicle style centerpieces? You’ll add to the winter theme and save money while you’re at it.
Get Creative With Your Favours
Get creative with your wedding favours. Rather than giving a boring bag of almonds, give something more fitted. Maybe a bag of fresh roast chestnuts, or a hot chocolate making kit.
Give Blankets to Guests
If your guests may go outside at some point, have blankets given to them at some point during the reception to keep them warm. This can be a great way to keep people going well into the chilly evening, and they’ll love how thoughtful you’ve been!
Having a winter wedding can be an unforgettable experience, especially if you use some of the tips mentioned here. You’ll be the talk of your guests for the rest of the season!
