Tis' The Season To Get Married!

Tis' the season to get married- Our guide to a wonderful winter wedding...

You've finally decided on a date and you're going to have a winter wedding! Winter is such a magical and exciting time, with Christmas just around the corner spirits are certainly high. Crisp air, blue skies and picturesque white snow, all the ingredients you'll need for a perfect wedding day. Here's just some of our inspiration to help you create your very own wonderful winter wedding...

Save The Dates

Set the theme with your save the dates and invitations, pay homage to the season with snowflakes, seasonal foliage like pine leaves and wrap them up with a big bow- almost like an early Christmas present!

The Dress

For the bride it's all about the dress! As the temperatures are sure to drop it's all about long sleeves and lace. Don’t be afraid to add sparkle and glitter, designers like Jenny Packham, Berta Bridal and Matthew Williamson are renowned for their wizardry in embellishment and intricate designs. If you fancy a simple dress, add touches of sparkle into your veil or wear a diamond encrusted hair clip. If you want outdoor photos you'll need to think about staying warm, faux fur capes and shawls are perfect for this time of year to keep you toasty and ever so fashionable at the same time. A handy tip for the bride and bridesmaids, take some warm shoes to slip on so you can brave the outdoors for pictures, keeping your feet from going cold and with long dresses on, no one will ever have to know!

 

Décor

Don’t turn your wedding into Santa's grotto, add a subtle nod to winter without being too obvious. Twinkling trees, candles, garlands and berries will all add to the ambience creating a cosy whimsical winter wonderland. A popular colour scheme choice for a winter wedding is red and white as it's fun and festive. Use seasonal flowers such as red and whites roses and hypericum berries for a beautiful bouquet and you could even add pinecones and holly into the mix. Don’t fancy a bold or bright colour? Stick to all white! Add touches of sparkle and glitter for a romantic wintery edge. Navy, burgundy and greys still work wonderfully at this time of year as well.

 

The Cake

Incorporate the weather into your wedding cake with stunning wintery designs such as icicles, feathers and snowflakes. Use dramatic lighting to make your cake one of the central focal points. White cakes with glittery aspects look amazing for winter weddings, we LOVE these intricate and personalised showstoppers.

Food & Drink

Your guests will appreciate nothing more than something to warm them from the inside out. Santa like snacks such as milk and cookies will go down a treat for the kids; and for the adult’s; hot chocolates with a boozy edge, mulled wine and Christmas cocktails with a candy cane garnish. Serve delicious festive canapés such as Camembert, caramelised onion and fig jam crostini’s, king prawn skewers or even little mugs of soup. Want a show stopping main? How about a hog roast with all the trimmings. For dessert why not have a chocolate fountain or marshmallow roasting station where your guests can add all their favourite toppings themselves, something that’s sure to bring the inner child out in everyone.

The Grand Finale

What's more festive than Santa's sleigh? Have your guests send you off in style and depart in a beautiful Christmas horse drawn carriage laced with jingle and wedding bells and of course a 'Just Married" sign.

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!
