Winter Wedding Decor Ideas
A Wall of Windows
It may be too cold to hold your wedding outdoor but do not let the snowy landscape go to waste. Pick one of the London winter wedding venues with large windows framing the breath-taking views outside. A conservatory venue can be a perfect choice.
Twinkling fairy lights will completely transform the look of the hall and also give a festive feel. Light a lot of candles all over the place to create an ambience of warmth and romance. Use scented candles and match them with your flower colours.
Let It Snow!
Do you like the snowfall outside? Create a snowfall effect inside with a snow machine. Or you can hand strings of white fairy lights all over the ceiling to give the snow effect. It is cost-effective too.
Spark It Up
Firework display in the cold winter evening just before the cocktail hour will set the mood of the party. For safety reasons, hire professionals for this purpose.
Beat the Winter Blues
Roaring log fires and hot beverages are enough to kill the chill outside. If your event space has a fireplace, then nothing is better than that.
Winter Wedding Invitations
Winter weddings call for invitations that are more formal. Navy blue or chocolate brown invitations in silver scripted ink gel well with winter weddings.
You can always go beyond the flickering candles for your table centrepieces. Bring the outdoor ice-feel inside with long white vases filled with white branches adorned with hanging crystals. Surround the centrepieces with pearl and crystal strings.
First, decide whether you want an elegant look or a festive look. White boutonnieres combined with greenery look quite graceful. Red roses with pine tree greenery will go well with the holiday season. Decorate the bouquet with ribbons embellished with crystals.
Wedding Colour Palette
Ivory and white with crystal accents look glamorous. Adorn the party space with crystal curtains and silver satin ribbons. But to add a festive and a unique touch, you can incorporate colours like red and green.
A classical pianist playing romantic music is the tried way to create an elegant setting. But you can always add something unexpected to surprise the guests. Hire a DJ or your favourite band and have them play your favourite jazz and pop songs.
A winter cocktail hour demands warm and comforting drinks. Along with alcoholic drinks, add a lot of hot beverages in the menu including hot chocolate, coffee, and tea. Set up a separate cigar lounge to surprise your guests.
In totally creative ways, professional baker can truly reflect the winter charm in your wedding cake. A winter wonderland cake or a castle cake will gel well with the winter theme.
