If you’re having a winter wedding going with Christmas colours, such as red and gold, is the obvious choice. But personally I I think an all white winter wedding makes for a really stunning choice. Just throw in a bit of sparkle and cosy fluffiness and it becomes a winter wonderland wedding that is so very romantic!
Here are a few of my ideas to help you achieve a Winter Wonderland wedding:Stationery: Any winter motifs will wok perfectly; snowflakes, reindeer, Christmas trees. If you want something a little different how about sending out small boxes containing your wedding details attached to a Christmas tree bauble.
Bride: A splash of sparkle will suit this season and a cosy shrug for the shoulders is a must! Adding a crystal hair comb or tiara will also add to the the effect.
Bridesmaids: If you want to stick to all white then white bridesmaids dresses it is! For those brides worrying the attention will be averted from them, pick a simple shape and style of dress with less embellishments than yours. And little fluffy shrugs are only fair if you’re in Arctic conditions :)
Shoes: I love the shoes in the image! The fluffy feathers are perfect for a cosy touch to the wedding. If you can’t find shoes like this then buy plain white sandals and search for shoe clips to dress them up. Etsy have loads of them, such as these.
Flowers: I love the fluffiness of white peonies and those alone in a big bunch is extremely striking. Although, if you want a bit of variation adding metallic pine cones to your bunch is beautiful; an example can be seen in this post.
Groom/groomsmen: Metallic pine cones worked into the boutonnieres for the men would look fantastic too.
Decoration: Sparkle and white and light everywhere! I love the lit-up paper wreath from Martha Stewart; you can buy a similar woolly one here! Candles dotted around will add to the warm cosy atmosphere. White paint brushed pinecones look amazing especially under those glass domes. How about seeking out plastic deer and coating them in white glitter for wintery & wonderful table centres. Baubles could be strewn across the table as well as used for place holders.
Cake: This cake with its white chocolate pine cones is perfect. If you want something more casual go for cupcakes dusted with glitter or iced snowflakes popped on top.
Favours: A simple and fitting solution would be crackers. Or you could make hot chocolate favours. Gingerbread snowflakes dusted with icing sugar, as in the image, would be lovely and festive.
Food & drink: Mulled wine is a must! Or mulled Ribena for the non-drinkers! Mini mince pies and canapes featuring cranberry. You could serve a traditional roast dinner for the main meal with Christmas pudding for dessert or a baked Alaska could look cute!
Other ideas: A snow machine! :D
