Not every bride wants to get married under the hot sun- winter weddings are more chic than ever, offering a fun alternative to the traditional spring wedding day. Complement your day with a classic winter wedding theme and you’ll be able to create a day that’s truly unforgettable.

Christmas Day

Embrace the festive season by bringing Christmas Day to life for your wedding. If you feel like the whole green and red scheme is a little overdone, go for a more subtle sophisticated look with gold, silver and soft blues. Adorn your venue with plenty of holly, twinkling fairly lights and, of course, mistletoe. Christmas tree baubles and ornaments can also make gorgeous table decorations, and add plenty of sparkle for good cheer. For food- think Christmas dinner with a gourmet edge.

All White

A classic white wedding can be romantic and beautiful. Don’t feel that you have to stick to stark white shades- you can use ivory and cream to create a timeless, stylish tone. This is a simple and striking theme that can be used on any budget. Pick pale, pretty flowers and dress your bridesmaids and flower girls in cream shades- but perhaps draw the line at a white suit for your groom, he can stand out in black.

Rustic Warmth

A winter wedding can be a cosy and comfortable affair. Use wooden furniture, deep reds and woodland shades for that log cabin feel. Serve your guests warming winter drinks like eggnogs, hot apple cider and hot chocolate (with an alcoholic twist, if you like), and find a venue with fireplaces to get roaring fires burning. The aim is to create the look of a luxury ski lodge, complete with blankets on the chairs and comfortable seating for everyone to sit back and soak up the great atmosphere.
