Romance is never more in the air than in winter, when it’s time to get snuggly, overindulge and embrace all things cosy. If you’ve decided on a winter wedding, we’ve put together some top tips to inspire you to create your very own winter wonderland wedding.
Whether you want to opt for a riot of winter hues or a plain white wintery wilderness, we’ve got some ideas to help you get creative and bring some wedding day cheer to the darker months.
Dress to impress
A slinky number or an off the should gown, might need a little more to it to keep the cold at bay. Invest in some accessories, that not only look stylish, but that will keep you warm too. A chic faux fur stole will look amazing plus it’ll keep you suitably snug. Think sumptuous fabrics such as velour or velvet that brings a touch of luxury as well as keeping you toasty warm.
Wintertime can often add more depth to your photos, with more dramatic skies and scenery to work into your pictures so speak to your photographer about what you could achieve. Remember there will be less light in winter so make sure you time it right if you’re looking for a sunset shot or simply some outside portraits, and when the sun goes down, bring in the props such as blankets and faux furs to bring the cosy factor to your photos.
Umbrellas and blankets can be a real lifesaver at a winter wedding, a marquee will be lovely and warm inside but for anyone venturing outside, they might appreciate a brolly to keep the rain away or a blanket for a snuggly stroll under the stars.
From Scandinavian hygge vibes that bring rustic foliage and natural materials, to more decadent opulence with rich warm tones and low lighting, you can create a truly memorising atmosphere for your wedding that’s as unique as you are.
Mix up the menu with some hot drinks; your guests are sure to appreciate it, there is nothing like a winter warmer to warm you down to your toes. Hot chocolate, Irish coffee, mulled wines, or a winter punch make great alternatives to more traditional wedding drinks. And Kir Royale is a great alternative to champagne for the toast, it might even match your theme better!
Winter weddings can be a truly magical time to say, ‘I do’, and with a marquee you’ve got a blank canvas you can really put your own stamp on, the only limit is your imagination.
