Looking for the Right Venue

Look For the Ambience Over Popularity

While looking for a winter wedding venue in London, it is proper to pay attention to its ambience, instead of its popularity. Find a venue that has the elements of romance and love. A right ambience will make the day memorable for both of you. You can pick up a historical space, or a modern edifice that you are looking for.

Look For the Venue In Right Area of London

London has enough venues all around. You need to book a venue in the right area that keeps your guests comfortable. Long travel to reach the venue taxes the guests’ interests. Book a venue at an area that keeps you close to the home.

Decorate It With Crystals

Crystal gives a mesmerising ambience. You can choose to decorate your venue in London with lot of silver and crystals. Use chandeliers, candle stands, and centrepieces. Play up the winter feeling with the wedding theme. Use plenty of crystals on the tables to decorate and place coloured Victorian gazing balls and snow globes in the room. Mirrors will be ideal to play up the reflective qualities of the crystals.

Add A Hot Beverage Bar

Everyone likes a hot beverage. Keeping a hot beverage bar in the wedding hall will add charm and warmth to the space. The guests can warm themselves up on a cold day with gourmet coffee, tea, and hot cocoas. Put out few personalised keepsake mugs as wedding favours for the guests.

Use The Season To Decorate The Venue

If your wedding is held at Christmas, decorate the venue with tinsel, stockings, wreaths, and a Christmas tree. For a wedding on New Year’s Eve, you can use paper streamers, champagne bottles, and top hats to decorate the hall. If you are planning the wedding near Valentine’s Day, decorate with pink and red hearts and lots of silk bunting.

For your whimsical tastes, you can find many fun themes that work only during this time of the year. One of the amazing winter wedding themes is a Jack Frost/Fairy fantasy. This theme can be ideally used in early December, just before the Christmas holidays. For this wedding theme, hold your wedding somewhere it is cold and snowy.

New Year’s Theme Wedding

      Good tips. As a wedding planner among other things, I always suggest to the couple that the reception, which is a reflection of them, be about the fun they want to share with others.

      Their own personalities should show through. Instead of walking into the venue wondering what happened. This can be done on any budget too. Looking for the deals makes the planning that much more fun and exciting.
