Are you dreaming of a white wedding? With many brides and grooms now choosing to embrace the winter season for their dream wedding, I get truly excited to see all the beautiful themes that emerge during this magical season.
If you are planning your winter wedding here are a few hints and tips to help you along your way… from spectacular winter wonderland themes to‚ cosy intimate settings, the possibilities are endless!
If you love Christmas, holding your wedding during December is perfect to take advantage of your venue’s decor, which is likely to include Christmas trees and twinkle lights.
However, for a glitsy theme using silver and white tones can add a touch of sparkle to your big day. As Cheshire’s Country Estate, we of course encourage bringing the outdoors, indoors, and combined with pine cones, this colour scheme‚ can give your wedding a rustic country feel or choose sparkling crystals instead for all out glamour. Check out our winter wedding inspiration Pinterest board‚ for‚ some stunning venue decorating ideas.
From red roses to calla lillies, there are a huge amount of options for your winter wedding flowers. More and more, we’re seeing white venue flowers such as‚ baby’s breath‚ and this can be replicated in your bouquet to get‚ the snowy effect. However, pastels aren’t just for summer and we love how lilacs and pastel pinks work among‚ white flowers to add a soft touch of colour.
With less daylight hours in the winter months, it’s a good idea to opt for an earlier ceremony if you want outdoor photography. Indoors, it’s simple to create a warm, cosy feel with‚ candles and twinkle lights. You can go as low key or as dramatic as you like, from fairy lights curled up in mason jars to this dramatic cascading backdrop.‚ For a bit of warmth, candles nestled amongst wreaths and berries on the tables creates a snug, intimate feel.
Theme your favours to the season with chocolate covered berries or mini marshmallows and biscuits for a truly Christmassy feel.
