Tying the knot when the temperature drops doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Instead getting married in winter lets you take advantage of wedding colour schemes inspired by cosy evenings in front of the fire, chalets blanketed in sparkling white and crystal snowflakes falling gently to the ground. Rich burgundies, deep navies and soft olives are all currently on-trend, just in time to turn your special day into something out of a classic fairy tale.
Keep it Classy With All White
Nothing celebrates winter like an all white wedding theme. This colour scheme also has the advantage of being timeless, elegant and, importantly, easy to achieve. This winter it’s perfectly acceptable to dress your bridesmaids in white and beautiful white florals are in season (for example tulips, sweet peas and hyacinths). You’ll have no problems dressing your tables and chairs either. Crisp round tablecloths, satin backdrops and lycra chair covers are all available at wholesale prices from Luna Wedding & Event Supplies. You can break up the palette with a hint of brilliance from sliver napkins or chair sashes or a splash of sparkle with lycra chair bands in metallic silver.
Be Bold with a Burgundy Wedding Theme!
Without a doubt, burgundy is currently the ‘colour of the season’ and, luckily, it works fabulously as a wedding theme. From burgundy wedding dresses or shoes to invitations, flowers and table linen, it’s the perfect colour to make a chic statement. In terms of matching hues think of pairing burgundy with pink or blush, champagne gold, white or ivory. For your tables, mix and match burgundy satin chair sashes with white lycra chair covers or a beautiful burgundy and blush pink floral centrepiece with a sequin table runner in champagne gold and burgundy napkins.
Accentuate with Navy
This cool blue shade is the perfect accompaniment to any stylish soiree, evoking images from the timeless 1950s and high-end fashion houses like Dior and Chanel. Navy wedding suits and bridesmaids dresses have long been a staple for style conscious brides and grooms but now the colour is popping up on invitations, in bouquets and on reception tables. Navy blue works wonderfully with blush tones, metallics like gold and silver or with burgundy. Start with a navy table cloth as a base and then combine it with a satin table runner in gold, burgundy napkins or satin chair sashes in blush. Other navy accessories available for wholesale purchase include napkins, satin chair sashes, lycra chair bands and organza table runners.
Inspired by Nature
Olive green wedding décor is fast on the rise as a trend in 2017 thanks to the popularity of rustic or boho wedding themes, both of which draw influence from the beauty of the great outdoors. The colour works especially well in winter due to its association with evergreen forests laden with snow, rosemary scented lamb roasts and gardens covered in early morning frosts. An obvious tie in is leafy bouquets but you can also work olive green into your table dressings with satin chair sashes. They’ll match perfectly with floral table centrepieces and garden inspired wedding decorations!
Make it Shine!
Bring the shimmer (not the shiver!) with bright metallic and sparkling accessories. They’ll gleam and twinkle like icicles in the sun, making them the perfect addition to any winter nuptials. Satin bridesmaid dresses and glittery cakes are easily complimented with metallic lycra chair bands in silver or gold or sequin chevron table runners in champagne gold and white.
Some More Winter Wedding Ideas…
Just because it’s not a spring or summer wedding doesn’t mean your guests need to feel left out in the cold! There’s loads of fun ways you can warm things up a little, for example by placing blankets at the end of aisles or by serving cozy cocktails like hot spiced wine and apple spiced bourbon toddies. Aside from adding warming colours like burgundy, navy and olive green you can decorate your reception with candles to create a romantic glow and use soft textures, for example satin chair sashes, to give it an intimate look and feel.
