Winter Wedding Decor

For something utterly decadent, opt for a truly white winter wedding - picture chic chalets, fur stoles, mulled wine and breathtaking slope-side wedding photos. And if that's not your style, winter weddings lend themselves well to charming boutique hotels, luxurious country lodges or reception centres providing a blank canvas to create your own exclusive winter wonderland.

Spring-wedding weary guests will thank you for treating them to something special; your attendants will be grateful they're not dripping in their dresses; you'll look divine with your make-up in-tact rather than slipping down your face; and your flowers will bloom all day - and all night. Winter weddings ooze glamour and sophistication, elegance and opulence, they are all about sumptuous dresses, flushed cheeks, rich hearty meals and a warming whiskey beside a crackling log fire.

3. Wedding Colours: Think about silver and white, black and white, white with golden hues or white with brights. For the brighter side of a winter wedding, turn to royalty and think rich reds and royal blues or lift the mood with hot pink or holly green with white. Shades of golds and pinks will warm your winter wedding mood or be the ice queen with silvers, greys and pale blues.

4. Wedding Flowers & Foliage: Winter lends itself to some great blooms and with the chill they tend to stay fresher longer! Winter flowers include Roses, Tulips, Snow Drops, French Lavender, Chrysanthemums, Orchids, various lillies including the Green Goddess Lily, Asiatic Lily, Holly, Gerberas, Star of Bethlehem, Queen Ann's Lace, Eucalypts, evergreens such as pine trees, pine cones, pine needles. These types of flowers are also awesome to feature as wedding cake decorations aswell! Dark colours such as navy, rose and deep green go hand in hand with winter weddings.
