WEDDING STYLING: WINTER WONDERLAND
Tis’ the season to be married. With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve moved on from marquees and flower crowns and fallen in love with all things Winter wedding.
The epitome of romance, we’ve put together a seasonal edit packed with frosty metallics and wintertime touches – enough to make any bride-to-be swoon.
Forget festive clichés, it’s all about making the most of Mother Nature’s wintery colour palette (she’s not one to clash). Introduce blue tones into your decor with hints of white and light grey to create an icy luxe look.
To really bring your winter wonderland to life, pair shimmering metallics with wood textures for the ultimate in fairy-tale decor. We’ve matched wooden tree slices with hand-painted plates and copper cutlery for a rustic-inspired place setting.
For a seasonal touch, decorate your tables with mini fir cone glitter scatters and ivory table pearls. Our mistletoe wreath also makes a great centrepiece – all you need to do is place two or three candles of varying heights in the middle of the wreath for a simple but chic table display.
Hanging decorations from above is an easy way to transform a venue. Try recreating the night’s sky with by using paper stars. Hang the stars at different heights to create a magical feel. We like the idea of using ribbons of different colours to suspend the stars.
No wedding would be complete without a bit of sparkle. Our glitter ‘just married’ cake topper is the perfect finishing touch to any sponge masterpiece.
Try to match your favours to the colour scheme or theme of your wedding. We absolutely love this edible option from Nila Holden – the vintage key design cookies are perfect for adding a personal touch to your guests’ place setting and are available in a range of colours.
If you’re feeling particularly festive, why not surprise your guests with a beautifully crafted wedding cracker. We also love the idea of using a personalised bauble, like this one from Clouds and Currents, as both a favour and place setting.
When it comes to decorating your venue, playful finishing touches will make your big day Pinterest perfect. Hang our ‘happily ever after’ bunting above the bride and groom’s chairs for one very cute photo opp and place feather filled balloons in the entrance to your venue to welcome guests.
Nothing says ‘snug’ like tea lights in vintage blue glass mason jars. Try using votives of varying shapes and sizes to create a cosy, winter-rustic feel.
