Opting for a Winter Wedding

There is often nothing quite as magical, beautiful, or as memorable as a perfectly planned winter wedding. You can decorate the affair with snowflakes, white colors, and pinecones in order to give a true sense of a winter wonderland but it is important to remember that you have a lot more options available to you than that.

While white is the main color that comes to mind in terms of a winter wedding, colors such as red and green are also perfectly acceptable in your color combination. However, if you overdo it then you will end up more of a Christmas wedding than the winter wonderland that you pictured.

If you want something a little more on the elegant side then you should consider silver, white and crystal accents for your big day. That combination can bring a lot of glamour to the table and something like a white aisle runner or an arch that is decorated in crystal can be just the look that you have envisioned in your mind all of these years. Wedding décor such as holly or wreaths may add to the holiday appeal but can be distracting and take away from the moment if they are not used properly. You can play it safe and stick to simpler colors if you want things to go off without a hitch.

Lilies and red roses are the traditional wedding flowers that are picked out for winter weddings, but there are a number of other options that you can consider if you want to be a little more creative. There are many different winter blooms to think about and a lot of brides are using options such as hydrangeas that are white in color or even ranunculuses. A white boutonniere is a great option for the groom and can be finished off nicely with a bit of crystal sparkle or even a solid white ribbon.

Centerpieces are often a major part of a winter wedding, and if you choose to go beyond traditional candles there are many options that can light up the room. If you have a decent sized budget you should consider ice sculptures or vases made of ice that can be filled with winter flowers. Choose white lines for table tops and consider surrounding your chosen centerpiece with elegant votive candles to add a nice mixture of aesthetic appeal.

The options are definitely endless when it comes to a winter wedding and the final choices are completely up to you. You can choose to have a simple and elegant affair that follows tradition or switch things up and add new types of wedding décor and extravagant colors. Just make sure that if you want to be creative and make the most of your winter wedding that you do not go to overboard with holiday accessories or people may start to wonder why there aren’t stockings filled with gifts hanging over the fireplace.
