While most people prefer to get married in spring or summer, we think there’s a true warmth to winter weddings that can sometimes get overlooked. From the sumptuous jewel tones that pair so perfectly well and the delicate beauty of the snow-covered ground, there are many things that make winter weddings special. Read on to learn our favorite things about this joyous wedding season!
Spring and summer may be known for their blooms, but this dose of wintry florals will leave you merry and bright! For a clean winter look, Star of Bethlehem and gardenias are a great starting point. Weave in some silver ribbon for a glamorous touch. Purple and plum colors look wonderful this time of year, so go for limoniums or waxflowers mixed with soft white roses. Pine cones are a fun twist on classic branches that keep your wedding vision looking ethereal and natural. And in true holiday fashion, you can always add a pop of red holly to any arrangement or bouquet to keep things festive!
A snowy lodge, a hotel in the midst of city lights, or a rustic mountain-op cabin are all spots that’ll delight you wildest winter wonderland dreams. What could be more romantic than crackling fireplaces keeping your guests toasty and beautiful lights twinkling amongst the snowy backdrop? This cozy environment brings all the best elements of the winter to your wedding and lets the beauty of the season speak for itself.
Winter white is always a classic, but there are so many other colorful holiday favorites. Bright Christmas red makes an amazing contrast against paler shades and goes perfectly with the cheery tone of the season. Whether you incorporate it into garland decorations or choose a bold satin pump for an extra pop of color under your gown, you can’t go wrong! Deep green colors, like the evergreens outside, look gorgeous paired with shimmery gold accents. Claret, bordeaux, eggplant, and plum are all rich shades that really stand out against the blank winter canvas.
Sparkle like the snow itself in Shania’s layers of glitter tulle and overlay flounce on a ball gown skirt. It’s a true wintry dream! The back’s semi-sheer bodice is speckled in sparkles while the train is covered in a cascade of crystal and pearl embroidery. Next, we can’t help but picture the simply stunning Sherri gown with its soft tulle train floating down the aisle like a trail of perfect fallen snow. The delicate organza waistband and subtle floral embroidery add the most dainty touch. Long sleeve and lovely, Stevie’s lace embroidered bodice flows seamlessly into a chiffon A-line skirt. Followed by a chapel length train, all eyes will be on you!
Nothing says winter like a hot cocoa bar for guests to indulge in. Have different flavored chocolate, lots of marshmallows, and candy canes to top it off! Keep your guests cozy and warm by providing blankets for them to have and hold, just like you and your spouse! Embrace the holiday season and send off all the people you love with gifted ornaments. Whether it has the date of your wedding or the guests’ name, it’s the perfect way for everyone you love to remember your special day!
