Winter is such a wondrous season, the dark nights and twinkling lights gives a real aura of magic… and although it’s not the most popular of seasons for a wedding, winter weddings can be absolutely stunning!
We have picked our favourite inspirations for a winter or indeed Christmas wedding, and broken them down below to give you a few ideas on how you could style a wonderful winter wedding.
Immediately when I think of winter, I think of Christmas – lush greens, rich reds and snowy white. Though for a more subtle effect, you could move towards greys, sage greens and icy blues perhaps…
Now I hear from a lot of brides that because of the adrenaline running through their bodies on their wedding day, they didn’t necessarily feel the cold as much as they had expected. However, a light sleeve for a winter wedding will always help to keep the chill off and for those that feel the cold a little more than others – faux fur accessories can offer a real style statement as well as a cosy cover up.
Depending on your colour scheme, your bridesmaids can look absolutely beautiful in a floor length gown and as with the brides accessories, perhaps you could add a cover up!
We love how bridal accessories can really add that unique touch to your wedding outfit, and there seems to be more opportunity for that with a winter wedding! Not only can you accessorise with hair and jewellery, but also with pashminas, ostrich feather boleros or faux fur shrugs…
Aaaah, the cake!! Now of course, there is absolutely a place for a rich fruit cake in a winter wedding… all of that gorgeous dense fruit covered in a beautiful white icing. Although, a rich chocolate cake, adorned with winter fruits would be equally as stunning in looks as well as taste!
Winter bouquets and buttonholes open up a world of wonder! The beautiful textures and rich colours of the hardy winter botanicals are a feast for the eyes. How about incorporating some feathers, berries, pine cones, or perhaps even some very ‘of the moment’ succulents into your floral adornments for that special touch with added texture…
