Secrets to Creating A Beautiful Winter Wedding
While winter might not be the most popular season to get married, it’s still just as beautiful, especially with the proper planning! If you’re a couple who likes a cool breeze, neutral tones, moody atmosphere, and cuddling up with family and friends, winter just might be the perfect time for you to get married! Check out these secrets to creating a beautiful winter wedding and start planning yours today!
Since it’s cold outside this time of year, there’s no better time to add a few more layers to your wedding day wardrobe. Accessories like a personalized blue jean jacket, a fuzzy shawl, boots, or even a hat or other headpiece are perfect for winter weddings. During your reception, you could even change into another dress if you please! Hand out blankets as wedding favors and after the ceremony, bundle up in one yourself! Added accessories are a huge perk of having a winter wedding.
The Perfect Dress
Of course, you need the perfect dress for your winter wedding. While that doesn’t mean a fur-lined dress that doesn’t show you off, it does mean keeping things simple, beautiful, and in-season. If you’re a winter bride, you can never go wrong with a long sleeve dress! If you’re worried about getting hot, sheer sleeves let air right through to prevent that. If you’re planning on having those accessories we mentioned, go with a simpler dress like a chiffon or silk material. If you’re not planning on having a jacket or shawl, go with a more elaborately designed dress with detailed lace or sparkles. You really can’t go wrong!
Winter Wedding Flowers
Your guests should feel the theme of your winter wedding as soon as they arrive and having flowers that represent the season is the best way to ensure they do! Your winter wedding flowers can be filled with dark colors including maroons, purples, or deep blues, or they can be filled with neutral colors like whites, creams, dusty rose, and greens. Your florist can help you decide on the perfect flower combination to fit your style.
In conjunction with the flowers, your winter wedding should highlight a few key colors in the overall color scheme throughout the day. From the bridesmaids dresses and the men’s attire, to the table decor and the flowers, all of these things should incorporate your wedding color scheme. Winter colors are the same as we mentioned for the flowers: dark colors including maroons, purples, or deep blues, or neutral colors like whites, creams, dusty rose, and greens. It’s also very classy and in tune with the season to have a black and white wedding.
What do you wish most for during winter? Those warm winter foods! Having a pizza bar would be perfect for your winter wedding. Include pizzas with all types of toppings, spaghetti and meatballs, and even mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce for an Italian feast! If you’re looking to go another route, barbecue is always a great option to warm up your guests at your winter wedding! Lastly, if you want a plated dinner, try a potato soup or casserole recipe. These are all sure to be winning dinners at your winter wedding.
