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 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 Traditional Wedding

The Traditional Wedding

t_1400780311_weddingIf you are having a traditional wedding, you are going to need some traditional wedding bridal accessories. Because a traditional wedding takes place in a church or some other place of worship, you will need some thing other than what you need if you were having a civil partnership or outside wedding. The most important bridal accessory for a church wedding is the unity candle. This is a ceremonial candle that is equally lit by the bride and the groom as they are pronounced husband and wife. The candle is a symbol of uniting as one. 

The traditional wedding ceremonies do have a theme to them, but it is unlike a themed wedding such as a beach theme or a garden theme. Many faiths believe that the union of 1315f886f5dcd2c8ea647816cce8c63ea man and a woman is a bond that cannot be broken. It is a sign of purity and commitment, which has resulted in a religious theme wedding. Your bridal accessories may include a white wedding gown, white shoes, and a veil in one of four different lengths with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. The flowers represent purity and tranquillity. It is easy to see why the majority of brides choose the calla lily for a bouquet as well as the decoration for the wedding cake. 

Bridal accessories for the church also might include votive candle cups lining the isle as the bride walks down to meet your intended. These are normally white candles attached to the pews in the church. Many churches have these accessories already and do supply them if you desire them for you’re special day. The unity candle for the most part, is customized with a picture of the bride and groom or with their names. The candles also might have a prayer or a poem that the bride chooses.

This is where the flower girl and pageboy walk in front of the bride with the flower girl dropping rose petals. These are two things you will add to your bridal accessories list as things you will need. The traditional wedding will last longer than an outdoors wedding, but is just as beautiful and memorable. After the ceremony, you will take the church photos and leave for the reception. The reception venue should be decorated the night before or on the morning of the wedding.

When you hold a traditional wedding, your wedding favors could include silver name placeholders in the shape of a bell or other linked object, picture frame or a something else that compliments your wedding themes. Your traditional wedding bridal accessories are going to be as elegant or as relaxed as you want your day to be. One last thing you will want to include in your bridal accessories is the small token of love you give to your husband at the dinner. This is not the case for all traditional weddings but has been done for some
