Here are some creative ideas and tips to plan a spectacular winter wedding:
That said, make sure you work with the existing colour schemes of your venues to make sure your wedding doesn’t clash. If the reception hall has pink carpet, you probably want to steer clear of a heavy red theme as it will end up looking strange! You can work both with and around colours for your reception. If the venue has hints of rich colours like reds, golds or deep greens then it will complement a traditional yuletide theme easily. But you can just as easily go for a “winter wonderland” style snow and ice theme if the venue is decorated with cooler blues, purples or whites.
Your florist can advise you on flowers in the colours you want which will be available during the Christmas season. Why not have a Christmas tree decorated with the same colours as your main theme (or several, if your venue is large)? Don’t forget that prices can go up as flowers become more popular over the holiday season, so if budget is an issue you could consider an alternative such as poinsettias (normally red, but you can get them in cream and pink), mistletoe and of course holly branches. Gypsophila in particular makes a lovely “garnish” style flower, especially in a bouquet.
