Winterful Wedding

image1The Christmas season is coming to a close but winter is still alive and well…unless you live in the south lol. If you are getting married between now and February you can still pull off a beautiful winter wedding. Some of you may be worried about not making your winter wedding look like a Christmas wedding though. If this is the case then here are some key elements to having a winter themed wedding that doesn’t say Christmas.

Colors

Reds and greens are traditional Christmas colors so if you are planning on having a winter wedding that doesn’t say cliche Christmas then steer clear of these colors. At least don’t combine these colors. Stick with blues, whites, and silvers. For those who hate silver gold works too. However, I would use red and gold if you wanted to go that direction.

Decor

Depending on your theme you can take this many directions. Snowflakes, frosted over pine cones, white antlers, faux fur center pieces. There are endless opportunities. Just try to think winter not Christmas. Stay away from garland  and wreaths as part of the decor. Also avoid green and red ribbons and anything candy cane stripped. Try and use glitter if possible, it gives a very snow filled like environment.

Flowers

Go with whites and blues and greenery. Reds work but be careful not to create a candy can affect. Pro tip use glitter roses to add a touch of winter frost. Poinsettias are excellent for winter weddings as well plus you can use colors other than red.  Notice the use of frosted pine cones and glittered roses in the pictures below. The greenery used also says winter rather than just Christmas.

The Dress

Add sleeves. Lace off the shoulder sleeves are a beautiful addition that make for a more winter like wedding. You can also do a fur collar or gloves that add a touch of class and warmth if you’re wedding is outside at all. If the dressmaker can do it add little bit of glitter to make the gown glisten in the light as you walk down the aisle.
