With the official start of winter upon us, most people find themselves thinking about the new year and the changing weather. However, what doesn’t cross most people’s minds in the winter months is wedding season, and we for one believe it is high-time that changes.
Choosing to have your wedding during the winter months come with some distinct advantages over choosing any other season.
Typically, there are more venues and better rates available; cheaper travel and accommodations, no humidity, and let’s face it, snow provides a unique and beautiful photo op. While admittedly, those factors may not be enough for you to consider a winter wedding, we have a feeling that some of these hot winter wedding trends may just do the trick.
Flowers are a staple at just about every wedding, however, what better way to embrace the winter months then choosing a berry bouquet? Berries naturally thrive in winter time, and options like pepper berries and eucalyptus berries can make unique and striking center pieces and garnishes for food.
Every bride should feel like a princess on her wedding day, so why not take a cue from the royals and embrace a long-sleeved wedding dress? Not only will it keep you warm, but it will also add an undeniable elegance to an already joyous day.
One of the hottest trends in weddings right now is frozen flowers, and yes, you did read that right. From ice sculptures infused with flowers to floral ice buckets used to keep champagne and white wine chilled, this is a great option to add a splash of color to your decor while keeping with the winter theme.
While this news should come as no surprise, typically speaking, winter is cold. Donning a snow fox, chinchilla, or lynx faux fur is the perfect way to not only stay warm, but the contrast between white and fur will help to create a rustic, yet sophisticated look.
Hot Chocolate Bar
Make your wedding truly unique by taking everyone’s favorite childhood winter drink and transforming into one of the most talked about elements in your wedding – a hot chocolate bar. Set up a station equipped with candy canes, marshmallows, whip cream, sprinkles, and maybe some Bailey’s or peppermint schnapps for the adults and young at heart.
For many, winter is a time for donning layers, however, when it comes to weddings, the same approach can be had, but we suggest sequin tablecloths and overlays. This will not only provide a warm and inviting look to the room, but the sequins will help give the impression of glistening snow.
Interactive Video Guestbook
At just about every wedding there is a traditional, hand-written guestbook where all those in attendance can write their well-wishes for the newlywed couple. Sadly, once the wedding is over, these usually get tossed aside and are rarely looked at. So why not do something different and provide your guests with an opportunity to record a video with a customizable green screen backdrop that can truly embrace your winter wonderland theme? Not only will this encourage your guests to participate, but it will provide the couple with a keepsake that they can enjoy for years to come.
