Planning a winter holiday wedding offers a lot of unique ways to make the occasion fun, festive and sentimental. Whether the theme is a winter wonderland, sparkle & shimmer, or a more traditional wedding, the holiday season can be reflected in stunning and simple ways.
Poinsettias in various hues and white roses are popular flowers found in winter bridal bouquets. But who said the bouquet has to be made of flowers? Other options may be bouquets made of eye-catching ornaments to add a hint of sparkle. The bride can also have a different version of the bouquet made to toss later.
And of course swags of mistletoe should be everywhere, it’s a wedding and love is in the air so kiss away!
Holiday Wedding Lighting
The feel of a candlelight wedding can also be achieved by adding clusters of small twinkling lights to achieve the same mood. Imagine the entire venue all aglow. The lights will create a warm, intimate atmosphere for the couple to exchange their vows.
Lights can also be incorporated in the ceremony to frame the runner when the bride walks down the aisle.
Think Warm for Winter Holiday Weddings
Winter holiday weddings in much of the country means the weather might be a little frosty. Guests will want to to warm up with an assortment of hot drinks like a mug of hot chocolate complete with a mountain of whip cream or marshmallows if you prefer! The bride and groom may even have special flavors they select for guests to try and a signature cocoa blend they create. A hot chocolate station will be a fun addition to the reception and may be more popular than an open bar. A selection of appetizers to dip in fondue can be another way for guests to enjoy something warm while waiting for dinner to be served.
Holiday Wedding Sweets
Wedding cakes can range from a traditional design to a trendy creation incorporating the bling, bulbs and blooms of winter. A selection of tree shaped treats from chocolate covered strawberries to gingerbread houses can also be fashioned to suit the wedding theme.
Don’t forget the yummy assortment of holiday candy like fudge or candy canes that can fill a candy bar to delight the sweet tooth of children of all ages…code for adults too.
Special Touches to Define Your Holiday Wedding
Guests can help create a special décor item at the ceremony in a variety of ways. Have each guest sign an ornament to be used to decorate a tree or displayed in beautiful vases. And a similar ornament can be used as favors for each guest, inscribed with special words of thanks from the bride and groom.
