They say the one you are with during the first snowfall is the person you will spend a long time with or if you will be lucky enough, the person you will be with forever. That’s why aside from the festive feel of winter brought about by the holidays, it is also a very romantic season.
Although winter is an off-season for weddings, weddings during winter can be made extra romantic by the gorgeous snow. The celebration of love brings warmth in this chilly season. To have that dreamy wedding, here are some winter wedding decor ideas:
1. Keep the color palette simple.
To accentuate the whites of the winter season, focus on a monochromatic color scheme. Since white is a neutral color, you can easily pair it up with another color. Choose one and play with the different hues of that color.
To give a warm feel, you can opt to use deep shades like burgundy, emerald, or copper. You can also apply this to the utensils. Use copper and rustic-toned cutlery instead of the classic silverware to make it look more elegant. Then, mix and match it with decorative accents of the color you chose.
2. Utilize branches and pine cones for a rustic feel.
Take advantage of the natural elements in your environment. Since the tree’s branches shred during winter, you can use those branches as part of your decoration. You can use it to make an arch and provide a grand addition to your wintery landscape.
You can also upcycle pine cones by using it as a cardholder, table decoration, garland, or even as a wedding cake decoration. With just a few modifications, you’ll be surprised at the numerous decors that you can come up with simple pine cones.
3. Add lights and candles to make it look romantic.
Instead of too many florals, explore utilizing candles. For the ceremony, you can line up candles on the aisle to offer a warm and inviting atmosphere. Also, candles will make the setting more romantic.
In addition to the candlelights, make the setting more dreamy by putting up string lights. Avoid colorful lighting. Stick to the natural shades of candlelight for a more elegant feel.
4. Drape knit blankets as a chair decor.
Although winter is a chilly season, you cannot expect all your guests to attend the wedding wearing too many outfit layers. Be ready with blankets to keep them warm throughout the ceremony.
Drape knit blankets over the chairs to complement the overall set-up. Aside from its practical use of keeping the guests warm, it will surely upgrade the cozy atmosphere of your wedding.
5. Set up a hot beverage bar.
If guests do not want to cover up their outfit (of course, you would love to flaunt your outfit of the day) with a blanket, a hot beverage bar can be the answer!
Set up a bar that will offer the guests coffee, hot chocolate, or tea. Decorate your bar with DIY decors using branches and pine cones and add candles to be consistent with the overall feel of the wedding. It can be a nice welcome treat to the guests when they get to the venue. This will surely keep them cozy all night.
