Winter Wedding Decorating Ideas You'll Love

White is the norm but don't be afraid to add a splash of color

When you're having your winter wedding and all you've been choosing is white, white, white, don't be afraid to add a splash of color. Remember winter is about snow and ice so you can add a splash of blue in the décor with lighting, in the centerpieces or even with the bridesmaid dresses. Don't overdo it just a splash will do and you'll be surprised at the classy look it gives to your entire atmosphere.

It doesn't have to be high budget to be elegant

If you have an unlimited budget then you won't have to worry about how much it costs to get your dream winter wedding. For most of us we have a tight budget to abide by so looking at some elegant weddings of the rich and famous gives us ideas about what you can do on a smaller scale. The picture to the right is of a high budget wedding, but you can get a similar look by using a fraction of the white trees and using plain white chairs with white covers to give depth and the "money is no object" look. Blue and white up-lighting is used to give the dramatic effect. Remember sometimes less is more and it will give you the same elegant style as the rich and famous.

Centerpieces can be simple and classy at the same time

As seen in the picture to the right winter wedding centerpieces can be very simple and still give an elegant look. Simply put a dozen calla lilies in a tall vase with water and there you have your centerpieces. You'll save money and time with this technique and if you want some added ambiance you can add some blue stones or submersible lights at the bottom of the vases for that splash of color resembling glacier ice. You can do these centerpieces yourself and potentially save hundreds or even thousands depending on the size of your wedding. Also try using silk flower stems in your centerpieces as this will save you even more and with the quality of silks these days you will be pleasantly surprised on how real they look.
