Winter Weddings can be the most romantic time of the year to tie the knot. The icy cold backdrop is ideal for both deep and pale colour schemes and wintery- like snowflakes, holly and rose petals. Here are some frosty wedding ideas for the perfect winter wedding.
Even though we can’t predict the weather we can still make snow happen! Snow can fall as you walk down the aisle, as you say your vows or during your first dance. Whenever snow falls you’re guaranteed that magical effect that everyone will love.
To keep guests warm and cosy a hot chocolate bar could be the answer. Make your own hot chocolate and add in extras like cream, marshmallows, cinnamon sticks and chocolate chips. Adults can be top them off with some alcohol liqueurs.
Traditional white and silver will never go out of fashion for winter nuptials. For a more contemporary feel ice blue with peaches or pinks give that playful winter wonderland feel. Grey and blue really complement each other and any shade of blue goes – ice blue, aqua or a teal.
Crystal embellished or glitter covered shoes, bags or even bridesmaid dresses elegantly reflect the winter theme. For the bride, plush capes or fur wraps to keep warm in the outdoor photos. Double up your guests’ favours and the winter theme by supplying cosy slippers for your guests to change into to keep their feet toasty.
Your reception can reflect an icy forest with icicles and snow sprayed twigs centrepieces. If falling snow is a bit extravagant, snowflakes can be projected onto the walls of the reception with changing colours or just an ice blue for that wintery feel. Motion projectors can be found for a good price at many retailers at the moment. For that cosy romantic feel drape fairy lights over the reception tables and windows.
Rustic winter elements add a cosy and warm feel and are great for tithe barns and tipis. Wooden place settings and wintery centrepieces with pinecones or berries can be a different route to a winter wonderland sensation. Elegant lace, fairy lights, flowers, and candles are an obvious must in your décor wish list. And don’t forget to keep the theme flowing through your stationery.

Think frosted berry garnishes, snowflake edibles, marble patterns or even theming the tiers in a wintery forest design. Just remember to check on prices and styles available local to your venue before falling in love with a cake design.
Whether you’re serving meals or a buffet, warm, feel good food is probably the best route to go down and to make sure there is plenty of it! The cold weather is a perfect opportunity to bring everyone together with food and can be accomplished very easily. Classic wintery foods can be simply and cheaply made but pulled off with flair if done right. Classic soups can be served in small portions accompanied with a hearty cheese on toast, or maybe macaroni and cheese bites puts a fun twist on a classic. Anything with warm chocolate will go down a treat (allergy allowing!): chocolate cake, brownies, melt in the middle puddings and three flavoured warm chocolate pots are my personal favourite with churros dipped in chocolate!
