These seasonally inspired wedding touches, such as holiday music and winter florals, may provide warmth and charm to even the chilliest days. Here's everything you need to know to host a festive party fit for winter, from dressing for the weather—nothing screams elegant like adding a fake fur coat to your bridal style—to creating an outside bar to capture the spirit of the season.
Lighting up your decor
Are there any magical effects from using fairy lights? A string of sparkling twinkling lights can help create the right mood for your wedding, whether inside or outside. Think about hanging them from the ceiling, using them as table décor, or draping a grand canopy over the reception. By wrapping lights around the trees, you may produce a winter landscape reminiscent of the holidays.
A long-sleeved wedding gown
By getting married in colder weather, you can make the best of all the long-sleeve wedding dresses at the bridal boutique. Every bridal fashion has a dress silhouette, from illusion sleeves to high-collared lace necklines. Don't forget to round off your ensemble with a stylish sweater or a fur stole for optimum warmth.
Wear a bold lip
Another advantage of getting married in the winter is exploring with a bold lip. While pale pinks and peachy corals are frequently worn heavily in the summer, a vampy red lipstick (ideal for a holiday wedding) or a deep plum will give color to your bridal outfit. Make sure to organize a cosmetics trial with your artist before your wedding day to make sure it's exactly the appearance you want.
Dried flowers are perfect for a wintry celebration because of their enduring quality. Dried flowers make excellent boutonnières and are frequently used in the ceremony arch, place settings, and hanging installations. Dried berries are a good option if you want to avoid using flowers.
Even though emerald green and ruby red are frequently associated with winter weddings, subdued color schemes can work just as well. Think about a row of slate-gray bridesmaid dresses against a white background or a collection of mismatched dresses in the color of your choice (you may consider dusty blue and icy periwinkle).
Bring the outdoors inside.
Make sure to organize the best wedding reception possible despite Mother Nature. You can bring the outdoors indoors by hiring clear tents that guests can utilize as they mingle and mix all night long. A secluded addition might be an indoor fire pit surrounded by artificial snow or a foliage canopy.
Branches will give your reception hall a rustic-chic feel when paired with foliage wreaths, fake snow, and pine cones. Twigs can be an appealing addition to floral arrangements or vases while designing your table setting. Better still, go large by adding whole branches into the centerpiece—a reference to nature without having to venture outside into the conditions.
These festive winter wedding ideas will undoubtedly motivate you and your guests when planning a winter wedding.
