I really love Winter Weddings, because there is such an ethereal feel, maybe it’s the fleeting daylight, bare branches or the rich, deep colours. You can really create something beautiful with colour, layering, textures and flowers for your winter wedding. Start off by choosing colours you like and build on it from there. Think dark greens, creams, splashes of gold, or dark jewel like colours, maybe, dark purples, dark pinks, and copper. Always look at what flowers are in season too (although florists can get other flowers from their suppliers). A couple of my favourites are, Amaryllis, Hellebores, Dahlia and Ranunculus. There are also lots of varieties berries and greenery around and these are a great way to depth, colour and texture and I love the way a bare branch can add texture to a floral arrangement or hanging installation.
Think about adding texture with lots of layering. Think about your table linens, adding coloured napkins and table runners on top of the tablecloth. Coloured cutlery is also a good option. Adding beautiful silk or velvet ribbons to the brides and bridesmaids bouquets, even down to the paper you choose for your stationery, including table names and place settings. I love a textured handmade paper with a simply calligraphy!
Candles are another great way to add colour, a rich gold candlestick with a coloured candle, or small tea lights dotted around to give a feeling of warmth when the weather is cold outside.
Don’t be afraid to add and layer, it will create a sumptuous, warm and decadent feeling to a winter wedding.
