Interesting Winter Wedding Ideas
Are you planning a winter wedding? Here are some ideas that are sure to make your wedding a warm and cozy one amidst the chilly weather outside.
Winter Wedding Ideas
On white paper add cotton wool and sprinkle it with silver dust to give it a snowy feel. Then write on the inside with either a red or colored pen to add a festive spirit to it.
You could also make your invites with thick, frosted Plexiglas and write with white scripted ink. It makes a perfect invite for a winter themed wedding.
There is nothing that will be more appropriate then to have a fireplace inside the venue. To add a rustic charm to this, it’s best if you could arrange for an inn, an old world historic mansion or even a very private club.If your venue has large windows, and it is situated in a place where you can expect a lot of snow, then it is best to cover them up. For, though, you may wish to see snowflakes falling and adding a magical air to your wedding, you might just land up with a grey cloudy day with a lot of rain and snow. Not such a great sight after all!
Fill the room with tall pillar candles on pine branches. It will sure add a lot of warmth and glow to the occasion. To this add a lot of beaded snowflake ornaments handing from the ceilings and white satin ribbons making floral designs on the walls.For the backdrop where the bride and the groom are to be seated, decorate it with long crystal curtains with hanging white phalaenopsis orchids.For the food counters, ice sculptures could be used.
Using a tablecloth with colors like cream, grey or even silver together with silver goblets make a good table decoration idea. You could add snowflake card holders too. Use small white and yellow fairy lights to decorate the trees, the pathways and even the entrance door outside. The doorway could also be decorated with paper flower wreaths or even origami birds made of white marble paper.
If the wedding is around Christmas time then you could also decorate a miniature tree and place it at one corner of the entrance door. Also, if it’s not going to snow too heavily, you could have the bride and the groom ride to the venue in a horse carriage drawn by white horses and decorate it with furs and white balloons. Just in case if you are predicting any rain, then keep some transparent umbrellas ready for all the guests too!
Decorate the center with vases filled with simple white poinsettias together with a candle on a silver candelabra. Instead of flowers, to give the venue a dream-like magical feel, you could also use white feathers and white tissue flowers in long and thin crystal vases. Fill a small glass bowl with bright red cranberries to add color to a white embroidered lace tablecloth.
Floating candles also make beautiful and yet inexpensive centerpiece ideas. Why not make small gingerbread men or even gingerbread houses to make your make your centerpiece? It’s innovative and fun. You could also light a tall aromatic candle surrounded by pine and fir tree greenery. To add glow, you could also use frosted glass holders designed with snowflakes.
Dresses and Flowers
The bride can add the winter touch to her wedding gown by adding a lot of crystal work to the bodice of her dress. She can also wear diamonds or diamond like crystals for her jewellery to represent the “ice” of the season! Add a faux-fur to the dress too to let her carry a fur wrap or even a stole to increase the glamor quotient.
The bride and the groom could complement each other by adding a similar color to each of their ensemble. For example, if the bride is wearing a red stole then the groom could wear a red colored boutonnière. Even the bridesmaids can incorporate the winter theme to their attire by wearing capes, shrugs, wraps, stoles etc. A pastel colored dress with a bright, contrasting stole looks lovely for this winter theme.
For the flowers, the bride could carry a bunch of white roses with silver-dollar eucalyptus or even red roses with hollies and pine tree greenery (to add color to the white winter theme). The bridesmaids could hold bouquets of crocus lilies and ornamental berries. These berries, together with baby blue eucalyptus could form tiaras for the flower girls.
Food and Cake
Don’t forget to add the winter touch to your menu by adding items like a pumpkin soup or even a squash pie. Include eggnogs, hot chocolate mocktails and cocktails, hot brandy cocktails and cinnamon spiced wine as well. You could also serve your guest saketinis. This is a Japanese rice wine. Serve it in cocktail glasses rimmed with sugar crystals.
You could even have a ready made coffee and tea counter for the guests to help themselves whenever they are feeling a little too cold. For the cake, the white color is enough to represent the winter theme. But if you want to go a step further, then decorate it with snowflake patterns, sprinkle edible silver dust or even make sugar snowmen!
A box of homemade hot chocolate or even one from the market wrapped with a bright colored paper definitely makes an excellent return gift for a winter themed wedding. You could even pack a box full of marshmallows or even chocolate covered berries or nuts. The guests are surely going to love it. Why not gift each couple with a musical snow globe with a couple dancing inside it? It definitely makes an innovative party favor.
Different snowflake shaped bookmarks made of sterling silver also make appropriate party favors. Add warmth to the occasion by gifting small miniature wine bottles to your guests. Tie a bright red bow around it to add color to it. A box of mints is sure to represent the “cool winter” month appropriately and would make excellent return gifts for the guests.Interesting Winter Wedding Ideas,
