There is no denying that winter is an incredibly romantic season of the year – cozying up by the fire with your other half, ice-skating hand in hand, and trying to find the best possible Valentine’s gift for the love of your life. It’s definitely a time of year for togetherness, and sharing as much body heat as humanly possible. That said, it’s also a great time of year to make your love official in front of all your friends and family, and tie the knot. So, if you’re thinking about getting married at the coldest (and most romantic) time of year, then here are a few awesome winter wedding ideas.
Opt For Red Roses
We all know that a red rose is the most romantic flower – and, if chosen as the flowers for your wedding, there really is no better time to rock a bouquet of red roses than in winter. Alternatively, other popular choices for winter wedding flowers are calla lilies, white hydrangeas, and amaryllis. Go for a white or red ribbon wrapped around your bouquets for the ultimate winter style.
Serve Hot Drinks
Winter is the best time of year to snuggle up with a mug full of creamy hot chocolate, so why not incorporate this into your wedding? Rather than serving fancy cocktails at the party, why not do things differently and give your guests mulled wine? This will give your wedding an extra wintery ambience.
Go Crazy With Centerpieces
If you really want to go all out with the whole “winter theme” for your wedding, then it’s essential to put lots of thought into the centrepieces. Bring the cold indoors with ice sculptures, and dot lots of fancy candles around for an extra intimate atmosphere. Fill vases to the brim with winter flowers, and make your indoor wedding reception really come to life.
Rock That Cake
What better way to show off your wedding theme than via the cake? Go for ivory or crème icing, dusted with gold or silver glitter sprinkles. If your wedding date is during Christmas time, then why not decorate your cake with holly? Alternatively, if you’d prefer a more minimalistic look, then request for the cake to be dotted with crystals.
As you can see, there really are so many awesome ways you can rock your winter wedding. Whether you choose to incorporate the winter theme into your bouquet, or if you want to go all out with ice sculptures, the choice is entirely yours. Whatever you go for, there is no denying the romance of a winter wedding.
