A Winter Wedding

winter-wedding-outdoor-07

While we think of spring and summer as the “wedding season” many couples prefer to have a winter wedding instead. There can be many reasons for this, but can include incorporating a key date into the wedding plans, such as having the wedding on or near the anniversary of the engagement. Many venues offer discounts to off-season weddings, so couples can save money by having  a winter wedding. Some people simply enjoy the look and feel of winter. While it is cold outside, the snow – if it snows where you are – is beautiful. People often associate the winter with warm things and warm emotions – snuggling by the fire, hot cocoa and cider, and warm, soft clothing. Whatever your reason for wanting your winter wedding, here are some ideas to make your winter wedding the perfect day.

Winter Wedding Themes

One of the first things brides consider when planning a wedding is the theme. The winter lends itself to some beautiful themes. Here are a few favorites that can help get your imagination going. Remember, when you are planning your theme, to include winter wedding invitations that match your theme.

Winter Wonderland Wedding

Your wedding dress will be white. Why not let everything else be white as well? Have your bridal bouquet and flower arrangements be white roses and other white, wintery flowers. For the reception, have white tablecloths with silver snowflake glitter. Choose glass crystal that is reminiscent of snowflakes. Make sure complimentary linens are white or pale blue. You can also use snowflakes as decorative accents to hang around the reception and dance floor. For your wedding cake, a traditional white cake is perfect. Consider decorating it with snowflakes and winter flowers. Do not forget to serve up warm cider with the cake.

What will you wear?

The traditional white wedding dress is perfect for this type of wedding. You can consider a dress that incorporates fur, though convertible fur is best – that is something you can remove once you are indoors. Dresses that incorporate or suggest snowflake designs are perfect for a winter wonderland wedding.

What will your bridal party wear?

For a winter wonderland wedding, your bridal party should have dresses designed with winter and comfort in mind. Remember that while the weather outside is frightful, the temperature inside will be warm, so do not put them in anything too warm, or choose convertible dresses that include warm coverings for the arms while outside for pictures that can be abandoned once they are inside for the reception. Since colors are traditional for bridesmaids dresses, stick with cool colors that suggest winter. Pale blue is the best.

Christmas Themed Wedding

Christmas is one of the biggest holidays of the year, and you can incorporate its themes into your wedding. Christmas is all about bold colors – green, red, silver, and gold – and these can make spectacular accents for your special day. Christmas weddings also allow you to add a traditional and even rustic flavor to your wedding. Consider plain glass ornaments or glittered ornaments for table and hanging decorations. Candy canes make great napkin decorations. Traditional Christmas plants like poinsettias, holly, and of course, pine wreathes make wonderful decorations as well. Do not forget to have mistletoe hanging over the wedding altar for the kiss. You can also have mistletoe hanging over the dance floor as well. Your cake can be a traditional white cake or you can accent it with Christmas colors. Offer your guests hot chocolate, warm cider, and eggnog for drinks.

The New Years Wedding

Why not ring in the New Year with your special day. The classic, chic charm of a New Year’s party lends itself perfectly to a wedding. Your colors will focus on black, white, and silver, so matching colors will be simple. You will also have many very nice, classy decorations to choose from, allowing you to decorate your wedding and reception at a reasonable price. You will still have your traditional white wedding cake and many of your table decorations will be white – such as tablecloths and napkins – though your accent will be black and silver. The traditional favors for New Years, such as poppers and sparklers, area a great idea for wedding favors and you can use white poinsettias and other white winter flowers for decorations, with silver and black accents. Do not forget to serve up the champagne for the wedding.
