If you are amongst the flurry of couples wanting to tie the knot in winter, here are our top tips on making your celebration magical.
- The festive season may be over but there’s no reason you cannot incorporate your favourite bits into a winter wedding. Indulge with some creative tablescaping using frosty pinecones, cinnamon sticks, log slices and other woodland details for a rustic and simple ambience.
- When it comes to décor, there’s no need to stick to the obligatory icy, winter wonderland theme. Experiment with white and peach with accents of rose gold to add some warmth to the crisp white scenes.
- Lanterns, twinkling backdrops and tea lights incorporated into your theme will help add that enchanting feel to a winter wedding.
- Be mindful of your guests whilst you have your pictures taken outside. Invite them to stay warm and cosy with a pretty basket stacked with blankets and gloves for guests to snuggle up whilst they are outdoors – a gesture that will surely be well received! Why not come up your very own recipe for a warm winter cocktail?
- And finally, when hunting for an ideal venue, look for places that will allow you host the ceremony, reception and offer accommodation. Having everything under one roof will be convenient for you as well as the guests, especially in freezing temperatures so you don’t have to brave the cold after dancing the night away.
