Updated: Apr 13
This time of year is so magical, from it's frosty weather and festivities, it's easy to see why this time of year is so popular to tie the knot! In fact, winter weddings are quickly approaching the original favourite, summer weddings, for the top spot season!
Make the most of the darker nights with brighter sparkles, and not the mention the cheaper dates! Here are our top Winter wedding ideas to make the most of your December-February weddings.
Winter Wedding Decorations
You can really embrace the festive season with a Winter wedding and incorporate the usual Christmas statements into your decorations. Holly would be a great addition to your table centre pieces, mixed with berries and fairy lights to give it a real festive feel. Your favours could be wrapped up as tiny Christmas presents or could even be a Christmas cracker.
Consider the same venue for ceremony and reception. Ask your venue to keep up their Christmas tree for your big day or ask your venue stylists to decorate the tree in your wedding colours. This would make for a great backdrop in photos and will make your venue feel even more magical, with the magic spirit of Christmas. Decorate where you can with fairy lights so when the early nights draw in, your venue will sparkle! Stretch a garland across your top table with holly and pine cones and you hang some mistletoe above the married couple. Keep the colours festive to tie in with your day, using red and white to decorate your venue.
Keep your guests warm! A blanket box at your ceremony or venue will go down a treat with your guests! Winter nights can be extremely frosty and cold. Ensure you have patio heaters at your venue to keep everyone outside warm and embrace a fireplace! if your venue has a fireplace, use the mantlepiece as the base for a romantic floral display intertwined with candles.
Make the most of the great food and drinks available during the festive period! Mulled wine is a great alternative as a welcome drink and is loved by many during the festive period!
Dainty canapes are lovely, but when it’s chilly outside, guests would appreciate some comfort food. A cheese fondue or mini beef Yorkshire puddings make the perfect canapes; a roasted joint, carved at the table, or a Christmas dinner for the main and a sticky toffee pudding for dessert or Christmas pudding as dessert!
Ensure you have a bridal jacket and an umbrella to hand as the winter weather is bound to be wet! Don't let the weather be the main focus of your day, photographers get great photos with umbrellas in the rain!
