Spring and summer have always been the traditional wedding seasons. While this may be the popular choice for obvious reasons, there is something special and endearing about getting married in winter. The dropping temperatures and snowy landscape of this season create a splendid fairytale feel, making it perfect for a romantic wedding. If you are one of those daring couples who wish to embrace the beauty of winter and get married amidst the magic of snow and ice, here are some tips to make your winter wedding amazing.
The benefits of planning a winter wedding
The best part of a winter wedding is that you will face fewer hassles when booking the venue. It is also likely that this will extend to the caterers, photographers and band on the date you desire, as you wouldn’t have to compete for dates during this season.
Take advantage of the seasonal elements
The winter scene is fresh and captivating. You can work this natural factor into your wedding décor. Although it may not be practical to have your party outdoors, you can find a venue that overlooks a wintry landscape to add to your décor. While it isn’t necessary to go with the natural winter wonderland palette of white, gold and silver, you can always embrace the natural esthetics and elements of this season. Consider using bold colors; say red, navy or purple, to create a spectacular setting against the white backdrop.
Make use of snowflakes, pine cones, icicles, snowmen and similar winter-themed decorative elements in your wedding invitations, centerpieces, party décor and favors. Dress up your venue with a roaring fire, plenty of candles and lush, soft textured textiles and you will have a warm and cozy setting.
Dressing up as a gorgeous winter bride with a fantastic entourage
Winter is the time to bring on layered gowns, long sleeved dresses, heavy fabrics, fur capes and perhaps experiment with a color beside traditional white. Choose a dress whose hemline grazes the ground, and it will keep you warm. If you have an outdoor ceremony, it is wise to avoid a long train that will be dragged through wet ground. Decide on appropriate footwear that will keep you comfortable in the cold, should you have to be outside even for a short while.
For yourself, as well as your bridesmaids, you can choose dresses in heavy fabrics like satin, crepe and velvet. How about adding a coat or gloves to your attire? This way, you can keep it on or take it off, based on your comfort. There are no hard and fast rules. You can even choose a dramatic dress, with ruffles or soft waves that are reminiscent of the delicate nature of snow. It will help you beautifully fit into the season this way.
