The winter season should not be overlooked when deciding on the time of year to have your wedding. With a plethora of ideas and themes available this season can be made into your own "Winter Wonderland" with a few creative tips and tricks.
Two common colors for this time of year are red and green. These can be paired together or used with other complimentary colors. Adding splashes of silver accents through your wedding will add some sparkle to your dream day. If red and green do not suite your tastes consider a beautiful light blue as a color scheme.
To warm up those traditionally strapless and short sleeved gowns, add a fur wrap or even a lace overlay. If you decide to use silver as an accent, do not forget your wedding dress! Add a sparkle of silver in the form of painted pearls, crystals, beads or sequins to the trim of your dress or on your veil; Be careful not to overdo it though, you do not want it to look too much like a costume.
There are many options available for treating your guests during the winter season. You can try any of the following to spice up traditional flavors: mugs with coffee, cocoa, or cider, snow globes, ornaments, nutcrackers, wreaths, pine cones, candy canes, or holiday cookies. Take each of these ideas and add a touch of your theme or color scheme to truly personalize the gifts.
Ceremony & Reception Ideas
Brides should take advantage of the plentiful Christmas lights on every aisle during the winter season and accent tables, trees and other areas with lights. For those of you, who have a wedding around New Years, celebrate with fireworks after the reception. During the wedding reception, decoration could include poinsettias, miniature Christmas trees, candles, crystals, gingerbread houses, fake snow, or even miniature logs with simulated fire. Ice sculptures are another way to bring the winter feel inside. Some other ideas for décor and centerpieces include: a Christmas village, Christmas train, snow angels, wreaths, pine cones, crystals, and even glitter sprayed for an "icy" feel.
