Are you thinking or planning a winter wedding? If so, then here are a few useful inspirational tips and ideas to help make your winter wedding wonderful.
Winter time is a beautiful season; the weather, the landscape and nature all changes. Evenings are longer and we are all wrapped up wearing warmer clothing. For some, having a wedding during the winter months is a no no but for others they just love winter time and the thought of a winter wedding is just perfect.
Integrate natural pinecones as a winter decoration into your nuptials. Pinecones can be used as a décor piece in a huge variety of ways. A few ideas such as surrounding pinecones around water filled mason jars with candles, vases filled with pinecones and fairy lights, pinecone candle, dust white or iridescent glitter on pinecone as snowflakes on wedding tables.
Unique Winter Wedding Decorations
Did you ever think to integrate cosy and fun items like sweaters, marshmallows and blankets into your winter wedding wonderland decorations?
Cosy blankets can be used for chair covers at a cherished wedding gathering. These can be placed on every chair, rolled up and tied with string and placed at the front before they enter the ceremony and even be given as favours after the gathering, or just wrapped over the bride and groom chairs.
Simple Candle Holders
Sometimes simplicity is key when thinking about decor in your wedding; even the simplest of décor items can be used to make a wedding look elegant and stunning. Add gold wine boxes with wine inside paired with white or gold pillar candles to create a simple and economical winter wedding look. If you have candle holders in your home, then don't be afraid to try variation across your venue. Another suggestion is to wrap ribbon, hessian string or coloured raffia ribbon around the neck of mason jars and place water inside and add a floating candle to it. Add leafy green foliage or winter themed foliage like holly around it and the look is complete.
When it comes to winter wedding flowers, the winter season brings a beautiful spectrum of colours.
Use flowers that are in season and available at that time or it will end up being expensive for you. Do you want your centrepieces to turn heads? Then go all out and put the dome-shaped bouquets filled with luscious overflowing evergreen branches, holly with beautiful contrasting coloured flowers such as white roses or deep red roses in towering vases on your reception tables. You can either go for full floral bouquets, leafy green wreaths using foliage with floating candle jars in the centre of the tables or single flowers as per your choice in small vases. Flowers are always an essential part of any wedding and choosing as per your theme will give a feel of classic elegance.
Apart from flowers, clever lighting will create an intimate, dreamy and romantic touch to your wedding ceremony. Create that intimate mood with small lights such as fairy or twinkle lights that give a gentle glow to the room. Keep away from the usual overhead main lights and choose candle lights that can help make the room more romantic. Floating white candles with leafy green foliage looks stunning. Place small lights or twinkle lights against stairs with green foliage again to tie in with the theme. The way you light your wedding affair can make or break the vibes you want so keep the lighting low and use lights with a warm glow. There are battery operated candles on the market that can be used if you cannot use wax candles.
Whatever décor idea you use, make sure it reflects your mood and theme. There are numerous themes you can use for your wedding in winters and choose to décor the place. Choose the right favour gift bags for your guests as a return gift to thank for making it to your special day.
