9 Winter Wedding Trends You’ll Definitely Want to Add to Your Day
There are so many wonderful reasons to get married in winter. From beautiful backdrops to faux fur shawls, the colder months add an elegant touch to any wedding. If you will be getting married later this year, you’ve probably already started planning and are working out the bigger details for your day. However, before you go ahead and get into the finer details, here are a few winter wedding trends you may want to consider.
- Build your own hot drink. Drink carts and stands are very popular at the moment so why not create a winter-themed cart for your wedding day. Think build-your-own hot chocolate and mulled wine.
- Keep your guests warm. Make sure that your guests stay warm and cozy during your ceremony and reception by adding pashminas to the backs of your chairs as décor.
- Jewel tones are in. In terms of colors that are popular at the moment, many couples are opting to use jewel tones such as amber, burgundy and dark green. Darker, edgier colors are definitely in this year, even in the summer months.
- Candles for days. Since flower selections are a bit more limited in winter, couples are filling in the gaps with other items, and candles have become one of the most popular choices for winter weddings. The soft, warm glow is romantic and will fit in perfectly with your winter theme.
- Opt for a statement cake. While 2018 was the year of candy and dessert tables, couples are now going back to having cakes only. The popularity of statement cakes continues to rise and they certainly add an eye-catching finishing touch to any reception.
- A velvet touch. If we look at fabrics that are currently very popular for winter weddings, velvet is right at the top of the list. You may need to work with a specialty linen company if you want to use this material for your wedding though.
- Wheat and grass are replacing flowers. Many couples are choosing to add non-traditional floral components to their wedding days, with pampas grass and wheat being two of the most popular choices. These two choices in particular add height, depth, and are unfussy.
- White dresses are not a must. Since most winter weddings will already be set against a whitebackdrop, many of today’s winter brides are choosing colorful dress instead of a white one.
- Consider a statement headpiece. Many winter brides are choosing to forgo veils and wear a statement headpiece instead. Think extravagant halos and breathtaking floral headpieces that add a beautiful finishing touch to a plain white dress.
There are so many great trends for you to consider for your winter wedding but to stop yourself from feeling overwhelmed, rather focus on the aspects that are most important to you.
