Winter is custom made for an elegant white wedding. With nature as your backdrop, you can hold a beautiful winter wedding filled with elegant ice, sophisticated silver and wonderful sparkling white to perfect the look of your wedding venue.
Ice brings sparkle and glamour to your winter wedding. Create a winter palace at your wedding venue using reflective surfaces such as mirrors and glass. Use white velvet for your aisle runner at the ceremony and focus on white flowers to complete the look of your glamorous ice palace. Ice sculptures should be placed at buffet tables and an ice fountain can be used for champagne or cocktails.
Beautiful white flowers with less greenery will give a feeling of snowy, wintry wonder. Use white ribbons, lace and tulle to wrap your floral arrangements and also plenty of crystals entwined in your bouquets, boutonnieres and arrangements. Hang soft lacy doilies or origami flowers about the wedding venue and at the wedding ceremony to create a feeling of snowflakes and gossamer wings.
Reflect what is happening outside by creating a wintry forest at your wedding venue. Look at bare branches highlighted with white lights for centerpieces. Use full sized birch trees or branches covered in white winter berries. Create icy centerpieces with plenty of crystal and glass that will capture the flickering warmth of the candlelight. Go for a little Hollywood glam with white feather garland or elegant white feather wreaths hung as a backdrop at the head table.
Another great aspect of your beautiful winter wedding is a white limo. You can easily find a local limousine rental service that can accommodate. If you don’t want a limousine, you can always use a classic vehicle, or a more exotic car. These are just some ways to arrive in style.
Instead of a chilled cocktail consider classic winter cocktails such as mulled cider with calvados, mulled red wine spiked with citrus and cloves or hot toddies to warm guests as they arrive at your wedding venue. Have a hot chocolate bar complete with marshmallows available at the dessert table ideal for kids and adults to enjoy.
Add touches of silver as the perfect partner for a wintry white wedding. Consider adding a layer of silver lame on your table linens and use silver candelabras on tables. Use silver serving trays to display your guest book and seating plans and add silver charger plates to your tables.
Add touches of faux fur throughout your venue to dress tables, as interesting rugs and draped over sofas and easy chairs.
It’s easy to create a winter wedding filled with wonder and magic with these tips.
