If you love the thought of a simple yet stylish minimalist wedding theme then listen up, as we’ve got the perfect centrepiece for your reception tables. Simply secure some small branches or twigs in a vase. Then hang small candle holders from the branches and fill with tea lights. It’s easy to style and it creates a chic Winter vibe that your guests will love.

You can easily create a rustic tree centrepiece too – the perfect choice if you’re planning a Winter woodland wedding theme. Rather than using a vase as a base, opt for a wooden crate and fill it with dried moss. Then you can just secure it with some small branches or twigs and decorate it with rustic hanging candle holders.

The outside of your wedding venue can often look a little bare in Winter, especially once all of the trees have lost their leaves. But don’t fret, it’s easy to make the outside of your venue look as good as the inside. Simply tie glass vases full of Winter blooms to the tree branches using a roll of twine ribbon.

If you’re lucky enough to have a rustic barn wedding venue that features lots of wooden beams, make use of them! Hanging vases and candle holders will look incredible tied along the beams, dangling over the reception tables. It’ll give your venue a gorgeous glowing ambience and can even be an alternative to traditional centrepieces.

If your wedding venue doesn’t feature beams but you love the thought of hanging vases and candle holders above your reception tables, it’s time to get DIY savvy. You’ll need to check with your venue first, but you can easily create your own temporary wooden installation that has the same effect as beams.

Hanging vases and candle holders for Winter weddings will look fab anywhere you put them, but why not add an extra festive touch? You could wrap twine, hessian or even tartan ribbon around the rim of your candles, jam jars or mason jars. Use a glittering gold or silver ribbon to hang your vases from – you can never have too much sparkle at a Winter wedding!

Go all out with your wedding venue decor and create a showstopper centrepiece that’s different from the norm. Fill large mercury hanging vases with Winter foliage – the wild and overflowing greenery will look stylish and it’s perfect for the season.

If your venue has hanging chandeliers, consider giving them a festive touch by decorating them with a Winter wreath. You could then hang vases or candle holders from the chandeliers for maximum impact. Your wedding venue will look completely unique, as well as magical.

A Magical White Winter Wedding Colour Scheme

What could be more elegant than an all white Winter wedding theme? This simple colour palette is effortlessly beautiful and oh so stylish. It’s perfect if you’re dreaming of a classic wedding with just a dash of glamour – and we think it’s just made for a magical Winter wedding day! Shades of crisp white and pale ivory throughout your décor will make a statement, and it’ll create a day your guests won’t forget.

How To Create A White Winter Wedding

Fortunately, an all white Winter wedding starts at your aisle style. Opt for white shoes and an elegant lace veil to kick-start your theme. Obviously, a white wedding dress is a must-have, but white gowns don’t just have to stop at the bridal outfit – bridesmaids in tea-length white gowns and gypsophila bouquets will look simply gorgeous.

Wedding cakes with white icing have always been hugely popular and they work wonderfully for a Winter wedding celebration. Keep the white theme going by opting for a chic white calligraphy cake topper – a personalised one will look incredibly unique. Our fab ‘It’s A Nice Day For A White Wedding’ cake topper is just perfect for this theme. Consider decorating your wedding cake table with a white lace table runner and an ivory cake stand – beautiful!

It’s often the small details in weddings that have the most impact. Let’s start with your table décor: fresh white napkins and silk white ribbons tied around cutlery will create elegant table settings. Instead of traditional ‘Bride’ and ‘Groom’ chair covers, why not wrap white silky material around them and tie with lots of greenery and foliage? It’ll make your chairs stand out while looking seriously stylish. White or cream jugs full of stunning white blooms make for gorgeous wedding table centrepieces – and they can easily be set up on the morning of your special day. Surround with dainty white tea lights for an extra touch – and who doesn’t love candles at weddings?!

If your wedding venue is already a blank canvas with white walls and interiors, you’ve already set the scene before you’ve even started with venue décor. Balloons have become a huge décor trend this year, and I think white balloons are particularly chic. Tie a few together and dot around your venue for a subtle nod towards your white Winter wedding. Balloons also make for fab props in your wedding photographs, and they’ll look very bridal. Keep things romantic by creating a white table full of your favourite photographs of you as a couple and display them in a variety of white frames. Your guests will love looking at them and it’ll break the ice and get people talking! You could be extra clever and include photographs of your siblings, parents and grandparents on their wedding day too.

An all white Winter wedding theme is utterly elegant, beautiful and classy. You really can’t go wrong with this theme – you just have to use your imagination when it comes to styling your wedding venue. If you are planning on this colour scheme browse our white wedding decorations here.

Top 10 Magical Winter Wonderland Wedding Decorations

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – to tie the knot! Today’s post is all about our favourite wedding decorations that are perfect for a magical Winter wonderland wedding theme. A Winter wonderland wedding theme uses lots of enchanting colours including silver, white, icy blue and a sprinkling of glitter! Keep reading and find out how you can pull it off…

Sparklers at Weddings

We love using sparklers at weddings throughout the year, but we think they’re especially magical at a Winter wonderland wedding. They’re ultra-romantic and a fun way to keep your guests entertained in the evening. Plus, they make for stunning wedding photographs. Keep a pot of sparklers at your wedding venue and offer them to your guests as favours. Perhaps choose a specific time to light them in the evening so that your photographer can be sure to capture it all on camera. They’re an easy way to add a dash of sparkle to your special day.

Sparkling Silver Wedding Tables

Your reception tables have a huge impact on your wedding décor, so make sure they fit in with a Winter wonderland wedding theme. Silver lanterns full of tea-lights make for charming table centrepieces. Plus, candles will create a warm and welcoming glow to your reception. As it gets darker much earlier during the Winter, you’ll find that you need to use a lot of candles and effective lighting during your reception. Opt for silver glittery table numbers to show your guests to their seats in style.

Stunning Winter Centrepieces

There are so many choices when it comes to Winter wonderland wedding centrepieces. Silver mercury vases full of Winter blooms will definitely have the ‘WOW’ factor. Fill your vases with eucalyptus, sprigs of evergreen, white roses and dusty miller foliage. The combination of colours will create an elegant centrepiece that’s made for a magical Winter wedding.

Magical Winter Crystals

A string of crystals is seriously versatile when it comes to wedding decorations and there are so many ways they can can be used at your venue. Drape across silver candelabra for a subtle Winter sparkle at your wedding tables. Alternatively, you could hang them across the back of your chairs as glamorous chair covers. If you’re having a Christmas tree at your wedding, they look stunning wrapped around the branches. We love the thought of creating a crystal ceremony backdrop for when you say ‘I Do’. Simply link the string of crystals together and hang at the back of your ceremony area. They’ll twinkle and sparkle as you marry the love of your life.

Winter Wonderland Wedding Tree

A Christmas tree can easily be a part of your wedding venue décor. But we’re not talking about traditional fir Christmas trees, we’re talking about a guest book Christmas tree! All you need to do is spray paint a small branch that’s free from any leaves. We recommend silver, white or even icy blue. Place it in a pot and weigh it down with pine-cones, baubles or anything else that takes your fancy. Ask your guests to write a lovely message or piece advice on a luggage tag and attach it to the branches of the tree. You’ve got yourself a unique Christmas tree guest book that you can treasure forever.

Winter Wonderland Centrepieces

You can also use trees and branches as part of your Winter wonderland wedding centrepiece. Branches placed in vases are a simple yet effective way of adding to your table décor. You could decorate the branches with Christmas decorations or pinecones.

Sparkly Sequin Table Runners

Sequin table runners have taken the wedding world by storm over the last couple of years and they’re absolutely perfect for a Winter wonderland wedding. Whether you use them on your reception tables or your wedding cake table, they’ll effortlessly add a touch of sparkle to your day.

Frosty Blue Tables

Style your tables with a frosty blue colour palette to make your guests feel like they’ve stepped into a magical Winter wonderland wedding. Icy blue napkins teamed with cool blue plates and cutlery can instantly transform your tables and even your wedding venue. If you’ve already got silver cutlery, why not tie it with a silk blue ribbon for a dash of elegance?

Light Up Letters and Fairy Lights

As we mentioned earlier, you’ll need to use a lot of lighting throughout your reception in the Winter. Drape pretty fairy lights across the ceiling and entrance of your venue to make your reception feel truly magical. Light-up letters are also a popular way of creating a warm, Winter glow. If you want to go all out with your festive theme, why not opt for light-up stars and dot them around your wedding dance-floor?

Snowflake Lanterns

Frosted snowflake lanterns and hanging vases full of tea-lights will look stunning hanging around your wedding venue. You could adorn your gift table, dessert table or wedding entrance with pretty Winter lanterns. Light up the outside of your wedding venue by hanging lanterns from the trees – perfection!

20 Tips For Planning a Winter Wedding

Winter really is a wonderful time of year to tie the knot, but it does come with some challenges. From travel disruption to cold weather, it can be hard to ignore the problems! However, follow our top tips and you can easily avoid any difficulties! You’ll be on the way to the Winter wedding of your dreams…

20 Tips For Planning a Winter Wedding

1 Winter is a popular time for both weddings and parties. Make sure you book your ideal wedding venue well in advance to avoid any disappointment. You’ll be surprised about how many venues get booked up for Christmas functions.

2 The same applies for your wedding guests! Let your friends and family know about your wedding date in advance so that they can plan their Christmas break. Lots of people will be going away on holiday or visiting family, and you don’t want to receive a ton of declining RSVPs!

3 We all know that the British weather can be testing at the best of times – especially in Winter! Ask your guests to arrive at your venue earlier than you would usually to allow for any travel disruptions. This also applies to the bride – you don’t want to be late to your own wedding!

4 When it comes to a Winter wedding, it’s best to hold your ceremony and reception in the same place. This is generally easier for wedding guests anyway, but particularly in the Winter. Opt for a wedding venue with accommodation too, this way your guests won’t have to travel home in the middle of the night.

5 Hang lots of lanterns around your wedding venue entrance for a wonderful, warm welcome. Lanterns lined along the ceremony aisle will look gorgeous too. We’re also huge fans of using lanterns as reception table centrepieces.

6 Warm and cosy wedding venues with lots of fireplaces are ideal for a Winter wedding. Your guests can gather around the fireplace with a warming drink or cocktail – perfection!

7 Candles are a must-have at any Winter wedding! Use lots of tea-lights on your reception tables and even your gift table.

8 Make sure you and your bridesmaids stay warm during your wedding day! Chic sequin jackets or soft faux fur boleros will look stylish while making sure you stay toasty. You’ll thank us during the outdoor photographs!

Opt for Christmas-themed or festive wedding favours. Have you seen our 15 fab wedding favours for Winter weddings?

10 Don’t forget about beauty prep! Winter can cause chaos when it comes to skincare and you don’t want to wake up to a beauty disaster on your big day. Prepare well in advance by investing in a decent moisturiser and lip-balm.

11 If you are planning on having wedding photographs outdoors, it may be worth wearing wedding wellies! This way you and your ladies won’t ruin your shoes. Plus, they will look fab in your photographs!

12 Be sure to discuss your wedding day timeline with your photographer. It may sound obvious, but a lot of couples forget that it’ll get darker much earlier. You don’t want to miss any key photograph opportunities, so get that ‘first look’ photo early on in the day.

13 Provide your wedding guests with a basket full of cute white umbrellas. Chances are your guests won’t have brought an umbrella, but they’re a necessity in case it rains!

14 Keep your wedding guests cosy with hand-warmers or gloves! They’re a great choice for your Winter wedding favours.

15 Offer your guests a pre-ceremony cocktail or hot drink! Baileys, mulled wine or even just a cup of tea will help to make sure everyone has warmed up before the party starts.

16 Hot cocoa wedding favours and drink stations are a huge trend for this season. Create a DIY or self-serve hot chocolate station where your guests can make their own hot chocolate drinks with cream and marshmallows.

17 Be sure to speak to your wedding florist about which flowers are in season. If you want blooms that aren’t in season, it’ll be either impossible or very expensive to source them!

18 Have you considered holding your ceremony at a slightly earlier time? This will ensure that you make the most of the natural light for your wedding photographs.

19 Serve delicious hot food throughout the whole wedding day. Lots of warm, delicious canapés and toasty drinks!

20 Lastly, enjoy the wedding planning experience. No matter what sort of challenges you may face, you are still going to marry the man of your dreams!

Snowflakes

When I think of Winter I immediately think of snowflakes, so they’re a fab choice for your Winter wedding confetti.

Autumn Leaves

If you’re looking for a seriously unique confetti idea that your guests won’t have seen before, consider using leaves. Autumn and Winter are all about golden leaves and they look incredible being thrown after the ceremony. Creating leaf confetti can be an easy DIY job for you and your partner. Simply source leaves and use a heart shaped hole punch to cut out shapes in the leaves. Put in cute confetti holders to hand out to your guests after the ceremony. Alternatively, consider using whole leaves to throw. This will look the most effective in your photographs.

Christmas Tinsel

Planning a Christmas wedding theme? Then tinsel is a wedding confetti must-have! Strands of sparkly tinsel will be a fab alternative to traditional wedding confetti, and it’ll look beautiful in your wedding photographs. Opt for tinsel garlands to decorate your wedding venue and wedding chairs, so that your theme ties in together completely.

Sparklers Instead of Wedding Confetti

You don’t just have to use confetti at your Winter wedding. If you’re having your ceremony in the late afternoon or evening, why not use sparklers instead? Offer each guest a sparkler and light them as you leave your ceremony. Your guests can create an archway and wave the sparklers over you as you walk through it. Sparklers work beautifully as wedding confetti if your ceremony takes place when it’s dark.

It’s always worth double checking whether or not your wedding venue allows confetti. If your venue doesn’t, why not ask your guests to wave personalised mini flags during your confetti moment instead?
