Anybody who knows me will know that Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year! So, as you can imagine, whenever I am asked to style a winter wedding I get just a little bit excited!! I love the idea of getting married by warm candlelight on a cold, dark wintery afternoon! The biggest challenge, however, is how to make your winter wedding seasonal without being too ‘Christmassy’ or even ‘tacky’!

 

The first instinct is often to use lots of white, soft blue or silver which can seem quite cold but with the glow of lots of candles, this colour scheme can be absolutely gorgeous. Why not try adding soft gold metallics to warm up the look?

The biggest trend I have noticed in my own brides recently is their desire to incorporate lots of gypsophilia into their flowers. This is such a simple, understated flower but when used on its own in large arrangements it can be simply stunning…

It creates the effect of huge clouds of snow when used like this and is also perfect for winter bouquets…

Another great idea is to use lots of natural wintery materials such as twigs, pine cones, raw cotton and moss to create a more relaxed rustic style. You could even spray these with snow for a more wintery effect…

How about a pine cone bouquet for something a bit more daring? Or try incorporating seasonal foliage into your bouquet…

Red is also a fantastic colour at Christmas but why not try a deeper burgundy or aubergine colour instead of a traditional red for a very chic look?

So what do you think? Would you swap a summer wedding for a magical winter wonderland wedding?
