Winter Wedding Series- Winter wedding Decor

By  | 

One of the best things about having a winter wedding is that you can have a truly lavish one without worrying about going overboard. After all, it is the festive season and that means combining two or more parties together is absolutely justified. If you’re planning to go with a proper wedding theme, then how about using two or three festive elements in the wedding doc as well? We share a few ideas on how you can make your winter wedding décor truly one of a kind:


For Christian weddings, red, green and white are three colours that are often repeated. But the main issue that stands out when these three festive shades are used is that it often gives the appearance of a Christmas party and not that of a wedding. We suggest using these shades sparingly in the church and at the reception venue for a subtle yet elegant effect. And no, you don’t need to put up wreaths of holly and silhouettes of Santa Claus. Opt for a classier touch with silver gilt snowflakes made from thermacol and interspersed with little bunches of berries and pinecones. If you want to have music playing as you walk down the aisle, go with instrumental music featuring instruments like the saxophone or piano.


Indian weddings are famous for the opulent use of colour in every aspect, and if you are keen to have a winter wedding theme, take your pick from these trending winter wedding favourite themes: ice blue, snow white, silver and red. We suggest blending the best of both worlds- if you opt for a colourful wedding theme, then balance the show of colours with silver or white which is easy on the eyes. These two shades can be highlighted anywhere- as bunches of white roses placed at the entrance of the wedding venue to silver lace being used for the stage backdrop. Sometimes, you’ll find that less is more!


And while we’re on the subject of winter wedding décor, lets’ not forget to take out those beautiful silver candlesticks, ice carved vases and crystal decorations. Create your own mini tree with string lights by using huge branches or potted plants that can be placed right at the centre of the table. Besides looking fabulous, such centre pieces undoubtedly enhance the overall appeal of the décor itself. If that sounds way too extravagant for you, then you could also opt for scented candles which can be placed next to each guest’s plate or keep four to six such candles at the centre of the table instead. Either way, the warm natural glow will be a welcome change from harsh bright lights.

White stain trimmed table runners, ice blue sashes on the chairs to midnight blue lighting- these are just a few of the many ideas you could use while planning your winter wedding.
