As the summer becomes a distant memory, over 30% of Britain’s brides-to-be will be planning their upcoming winter wedding. Incorporating the natural elements of the season, amongst the tradition, the opportunities to make the most of this period of the year is why it is such an appealing time to exchange vows. Making the most of this special time of year, whilst ensuring it is the most memorable day of your life can be done in a number of ways. Using the right accessories, keeping all the guests happy, and much more; so if you are planning your winter wedding, let us help with some simple tips.
Remember, it will be cold, and accessories such as a veil, a cape or a chic cardigan are all good options to keep you warm, and keep the style you’ve been dreaming of. For the groom, you can’t get more wintery than velvet, plus it’s a nice thick fabric which will certainly keep them warm. But don’t forget your bridesmaids, they will be cold too so make sure to have a cover up option for them also. Remaining on the warmth factor, if your dress is floor length, why not wear a pair of thick tights underneath – nobody will know! And finally, keep your winter bridal flair going with stylish boots as a different bridal shoe option, especially if it rains, you won’t have to worry.
Considering the venue, and the chance the British winter weather may not go as planned, the opportunity to have your ceremony and reception at the same location will remove the worry of transporting your guests in bad weather. Embrace the weather though, and the dark nights; beautiful candles dotted around to light your reception space will provide an added essence of romance. Stick to the wintery theme for favours too, blankets or pashminas, sparklers, cookies, mulled wine spices, candy canes or little bottles of Baileys are all perfect ideas. Finish your winter wedding off with a subtle winter themed cake topper; making your wedding individual and special to you.
