Venue Dressing for Winter Weddings
As the song goes, winter ‘is the most wonderful time of the year’ and when you are planning to have a seasonal winter wedding it is even more magical. There is something so breathtakingly enchanting about winter weddings and it is important that you take advantage of every beautiful aesthetic detail possible.
The first thing any bride to be thinks about is her dress and with the winter season comes stunning winter gowns. At this time of year brides tend to choose a pure white dress over off white colours as against the beautiful snowy white backdrop cream and ivory colours tend to look dirty. Often many brides as go with lace embroidered sleeves, embellished with diamonds and glitter to complete their winter look.
Accessories are equally important and you’ll want to wow everyone with something crystal or diamond which will catch the light and make you shine. If you are going to be covered up in the cold winter air you might want to consider a headpiece such as a tiara and bold earrings as these will help to make you stand out in all your wedding photos.
When it comes to dressing your venue, just like your dress you won’t want any off white colours contrasting with you or your winter backdrop so make sure you have all pure white chair covers, table cloths and chiavari chairs. If you hire a bespoke venue dresser you may want to consider indulging in the winter wonderland theme by having glitter, snowflakes and drapes throughout. Your accent colour is equally important and you might want to look at blue icy shades so that you can have beautiful ribbons wrapped around your chairs making everything pop!
Winter flowers are always stunning but using white flowers, perhaps white roses mixed with silver foliage will make them pop. You might want to look at more winter favourites such as winter fir which is always a popular choice to add some structure to your flowers.
All girls know that the bride is only as good as her bridesmaids and with a winter wedding you have the perfect opportunity to have them shining bright and beautiful in winter shades of icy blue, glittering silvers or even your chosen accent colour.
And finally one of the main attractions of the wedding that all your guests will remember; the cake. With winter wedding cakes you have the opportunity to create something so amazing and beautiful. Cakes wrapped in ribbons are always a timeless classic meant to create a simple yet sophisticated aesthetic. However, you might want to consider really implementing your winter wonderland creativity by using glitter, diamanté effects and beautifully made cake toppers. Whatever you can imagine, it can be made!
