It is a beautiful site to see a fresh, clean snowfall that blankets the ground and transforms the trees into lovely works of art…as long as you don’t have to shovel it, drive in it, or face the bitter cold that goes along with it. That is one of the wonderful things about a winter wedding theme; a couple can incorporate the beautiful elements of winter into their ceremony and reception without the bitter cold and other despairing elements.
In addition to beauty without the beast (so to speak), weddings with a winter theme offer endless options for unique décor options. While red and green décor may be tempting, consider the fact that this is your wedding and not just a ‘Christmas party’, so be sure to incorporate your own personal touches. Couples may want to consider other wintery, yet elegant, color combinations like red and white, silver and gold, blue and silver, red and silver, or white and blue. Investing a little money in lighting can also go a long way in achieving a winter wonderland appearance. Snow globes with a photo of the couple and a touch of floral for centerpieces, hand decorated cookies or treats (either as favors or for a dessert table), and snowflake napkin ties are just a few options for personalization.
Many venues decorate for the holidays between the months of November and January. This can be a real budget saver. The couple should use this to their advantage. If the venue has a grand Christmas tree with gold ornaments and red bows, incorporate those colors into the theme. If a couple is planning the wedding months in advance, they should not be shy when asking about holiday décor. Venues don’t generally purchase new holiday decorations each year, so the manager or coordinator should be able to provide insight into what décor the venue uses. If a couple is planning far enough in advance, it is very beneficial to visit the venue around their event date to get a first hand view of the décor.
There are so many possibilities for style and décor; it may be in a couple’s best interest to hire a wedding planner. A good planner, especially when working with a reputable florist, can be the best advocate. By working together using décor the venue already provides, and the vision of the couple, a planner and florist can work magic
