After entering the final month of the year, winter is most certainly here. From the colder days, to the darker mornings, the season has truly changed, but provides every bride and groom the potential for the most beautiful winter themed wedding. Roaring log fires, Christmas trees and maybe even a blanket of snow on your way to the alter, how can you say no to a winter wonderland wedding?
If you have chosen this time of the year to say ‘I do’ then we have a few ideas to help turn your nuptials into the perfect wonderland setting.
Add a jumper to your outfit
Who said you can’t keep warm, feel cosy and still look like a bride? Adding a white or cream jumper will add the winter effect, especially in photos.
Hand blankets out to your guests
Practical outfits for a winter wedding are few and far between, so cosy blankets will be a God-send to your guests if they’re feeling the chill. Choose blankets that match your colour scheme and store them in a basket for a rustic, welcoming look at the reception.
Choose ice queen make-up
Pearly shades and natural base will make your skin gleam, whilst looking stunning against a white dress. Add silver liner in the corner of your eye, and pearly shades on your lips and nails.
Offer hot chocolate or mulled wine instead of champagne
After spending hours in the cold, not many people will want a cold drink. Rich hot chocolate or mulled wine adds a personal touch, and ensures your guests are nice and warm.
Embrace the weather
A winter wedding means few guarantees from the British weather, but if the worst does happen, just go with it; don’t let anything stop you from enjoying your big day.
Style your cake with festive red and white
Keep the theme alive with the festive colours, elegantly adding a bunch of roses (or a sprig of holly?) to the top of your cake.
Follow the theme through
Continue the winter wonderland concept throughout your big day; with festive invitations, snow flake place cards and mince pies or Christmas stockings for favours.
There’s no doubt that you can pull off the most extravagant winter wonderland wedding, starting with the dress. Find the snow queen gown of your dreams in our stunning collection of designer wedding dresses online, or call us on 01799 526982 for more information.
