Winter Weddings for vintage lovers

Winter may not be the most popular season to get married in, but done right it can be done in style and in a really unique way. Winter weddings can have lashings of atmosphere and, with lots of preparation, be presented as a truly magical event with a style that is totally different to anything you can achieve in the summer months.

Set the scene with the right invite.  Pick something sparkly, festive or if your theme embraces winter itself an invite that is snowy, white and wintery…

Make good use of all the photo opportunities that a winter wedding provides.  if it snows use it, if you have outdoors space, wrap up and embrace it and if you can arrive on a sledge…well do it!

One of the main themes for a winter wedding is a winter white theme.  Simple and effective, pure bright white is the main colour with touches of metallics for a more elegant look or mix in natural materials with winter whites and creams for a more rustic look.

Its darker during the winter so mood lighting becomes even more important within your wedding décor.  use hanging lights, candles and fairy lights wherever you can.  Use warmer tone bulbs so the venue warms up visually rather than cools down.

Winter means you can be more interesting with your wedding dress choices.  Add a faux fur hat or wrap, knitwear or bright coloured bouquet for a beautiful quirky look.

A magic and sparkle theme is for those who love anything glittery.  Diamante, fairy lights, sequins and eveningwear are the order of the day.  Add black or midnight blue to tone the bling and you’ll create a winter wedding that feels just magical.

Serve your guests hot chocolate as well as alcoholic drinks and canapés.  Perfect to warm everyone up on even the coldest of days.

make sure your wedding cake matched the theme.  White cakes are a given for a winter wedding but add some sparkle or detail to make it stand out.

If you’re brave a Christmas theme can work wonderfully for a late December wedding.  Be careful though as many people make plans for Christmas many months in advance so too near to the 25th can be a real no-no.  Use Christmas decorations, holly and berries and tradition festive sweets for your décor and co-ordinate with splashes of red for a gorgeous wedding look.
