Winter can provide a beautiful backdrop to a romantic and memorable winter wedding. By incorporating some of the year’s hottest wedding trends and keeping in mind the time of year when planning your nuptials, your wedding will be a magical occasion.
Winter Wedding Colors – Think Metallic
Metallics are today’s popular new wedding colors, and what a wonderful way to bring in the sparkle of the winter season to this special celebration. A metallic color theme can be brought into everything from the wedding party’s attire to the invitations, wedding cake, and table linens.
Winter Inspires Elegance
Even though it’s been five years since the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, her bridal gown with the long lace sleeves continues to inspire wedding fashion today. A winter wedding is a perfect time to embrace a bridal gown with long sleeves, in a rich, luxurious fabric. To stay warm, accessorize with a chic faux fur wrap.
Book A Venue Early
The winter season is filled with numerous holidays and holiday parties. Keep that in mind when booking your venue. If inclement weather is a possibility, select a venue that is easy to get to. Also, consider having the wedding and reception at the same location so guests don’t have to drive to two sites in cold, snowy weather.
Lighting Always Sets the Mood
Remember, it gets darker earlier in the wintertime. If the celebration runs into the evening, use lighting to create a romantic and intimate setting. A Bliss Lighting Effect can make it seem like you’re dancing under the winter starry sky. Use Pin Spot Lighting to showcase the wedding cake table or centerpieces, and Monogram Lighting for a bright and shiny way to celebrate your first hours as Mr. and Mrs. A professional lighting expert is best when you’re trying to create the perfect mood.
Keep Guests Comfy
Lounge areas with comfortable seating options continue to be a popular trend for the cocktail reception and after-party hours. This type of seating enables guests to mix and mingle easily while sipping on beverages. To keep guests cheery and warm, many winter wedding couples are offering seasonal beverage choices like white hot chocolate in espresso cups and eggnog in small punch glasses.
DJ Services Make It Personal
Today’s couples desire a wedding that not only showcases who they are but one that’s fun for their guests. As a result, they want a DJ service that can provide music that’s personal to them and include a number of genres for all their guests.
Don’t Forget the Interactives
Speaking of fun, the trend of having a Photo Booth and/or a Video Booth continues to be a hot one. What better way to provide happy memories of those who were at the wedding or to receive wishes from friends and family. And the photos and video clips can be easily shared.
