A winter wedding may not be something that everybody thinks of when planning this special event as in general people prefers to get married in the summer months. However, this white and beautiful season can turn an ordinary wedding into a winter wonderland wedding. And who doesn’t love the holiday season? So use your creativity and make your winter wedding unforgettable.
The first thing you need to do is to pick your perfect location for a winter wedding theme. Great options would be private estates, inns, mansions or country clubs that will preferably have a big fireplace to create a cozy atmosphere. And for the outside scenery, a mountain location would be ideal for a fairytale look. Once you decided on the tabletops, the next thing you need to do is to incorporate some winter symbols in your wedding reception.
An unforgettable point of attraction and an innovative centerpiece could be ice sculpture in the shape of a snowman or anything else creative that you can imagine. Try to use gold and silver reflections to add some glamour and shine to your wedding location. Crystal snowflake ornaments can be used over your flower bouquets to enhance the wintery atmosphere even more.
The quintessential winter color is, of course, red and different shades of red. Go for red and burgundy draperies, napkins and tabletops, matching them with red or white roses to complete the wonderland theme.
For the wedding menu, you can get creative and incorporate some traditional holiday season favorites such as eggnog, hot cinnamon-flavored chocolate, and spiced wines.
The cake should be ideally white and decorated with some sugar sculptures or snowflake patterns. As for the main food dishes, keep it traditional and add some pumpkin soup or a squash dish.
You’re probably wondering what you could wear at your winter wedding to look beautiful but stay within the winter wedding theme. The best choice is a pure white wedding gown with a white fur or faux fur wrap or a dramatic long white coat. Wear a gold or silver tiara instead of a hairpiece to complete your ice princess look.
The jewelry should look like ice, which means it should be made of diamond diamond-like pieces. For the groom chose a white tuxedo instead of a black one and preferably it with a silver or gold vest. A special touch to make the whole ceremony even more impressive would be arriving at the reception in a horse-drawn carriage.
