People all around the world look forward to winter because of Christmas and the New Year. For a lucky few, it’s also the season when they finally get to walk down the aisle and say ‘I do’.
Winter weddings are becoming more popular than ever as bride and grooms clock onto the many advantages of getting hitched in December, January and February. If you’ve locked down the date for your big day, here are just a few ideas that should make for a wonderful winter wedding.
Those chilly temperatures are nothing to shy away from. Instead, you should incorporate the sub-zero conditions into your wedding as much as possible. For the bride, you can’t go wrong with an elegant white coat to complement the dress. The bridesmaids can also get in on the action by donning fur stoles.
Let there be light!
The days draw darker much earlier in the winter. Therefore, you need to give some careful thought to how you’re going to light up your reception. Candles are always a good option because they are very romantic. However, Light Up Love offer illuminated letters that would be the crème de la crème of your special day.
December weddings would be well served to incorporate a few festive favourites into the theme. Obviously you don’t want to go overboard because it’s about celebrating your love rather than Christmas. But small details like red ribbons and mistletoe should be a big hit when you get hitched. If your wedding falls just after Christmas, you should still be able to lean on colours like gold and silver as you decorate the venue.
Your guests – not to mention you and your beloved – will appreciate a meal that’s warm and bursting with flavour during the reception. Soup, alongside lightly cooked bread would be an amazing option for the starter. Meanwhile, homemade pies should go down a storm as the main. How about washing it all down with some heated mulled wine afterwards?
Be sure to capture the temperature on your wedding pictures. This means snuggling up together, posing in front of icy walkways and – if you’re especially lucky – in front of falling snow.
