There’s no doubt that the colder seasons are some of the most romantic times of the year. It’s chilly outside, so everyone is cuddling up by a cosy fireplace, enjoying the festive feeling. So what better time to host your wedding! A winter wedding can be a beautifully romantic occasion, but you might be stuck when deciding on a theme to fit the season. Here’s our top five ideas for a winter wedding theme to give you some inspiration…
1. Layer it up
Layers are essential for the cold weather, and we’re not talking about your bridal look. Draping fabric around your wedding venue can completely transform your space, and turn it into a warm winter wonderland. Think flowing, billowy linens on the tables and chairs to keep the space looking soft, and floor to ceiling fabrics. You can also mix it up with some fairy lights and candles to add to the cosy feel of the venue.
2. Freeze your flowers
Want a totally eye-catching and different way to display your floral arrangements? Put it on ice – literally. A huge trend in 2018 winter weddings is to display frozen flower arrangements, for an ice-castle vibe. The frozen water will make bright colours even more vivid, so this is a great idea if your colour scheme is bold. Lots more ideas on Pinterest
3. Comfort foods
Winter weddings are a great opportunity to play around with the traditional wedding food. When the weather is cold outside, we reach for hot and hearty foods, and your wedding doesn’t have to be an exception. Think of your favourite comfort foods like hot soups, braised beef casserole with dumplings and sticky red cabbage on the side; warm pastries and pies and the ultimate, baked brie and mulled wine!
4. Think Green
Dark greenery lends itself to a winter wedding, as the colours stand out perfectly against your bridal dress. Designing a bouquet with a lot of leaves and green flowers is a great idea for a winter wedding. You can also adorn your venue with wintery trees and plants to make it a real winter wonderland.
5. Faux Fur
Nothing will make you feel warmer in the cold than faux fur accents. Drape this fabric to the back of chairs, or invest in a soft faux fur wrap to go over your wedding dress. You can also use faux fur around your venue to really add to the warmth and create the cosy vibes.
