Summer weddings are by far the most popular, but winter weddings have an intimate, romantic vibe that summer weddings simply cannot replicate. If you are planning on a winter wedding, achieving the perfect wonderland look might seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Keep reading to learn how to turn your wedding venue into the perfect winter wonderland escape.
The first thing you need to consider for your dream winter wonderland is the color palette. There are many options to choose from and it all comes down to your preferences and the atmosphere you are trying to create.
One option for a winter wonderland color palette is dusky blues and greyed jade. These soft and subtle colors give a nod to the frigid temperatures outside without being too washed out. Another good option is a mix of greys, greens, and gold, known as snow covered pine. Gold and grape are another color scheme that goes great for winter wonderland weddings with a pop of color and class. Frosty blues and greys are another sophisticated color palette for your wedding that offers a romantic, masculine touch.
If you close your eyes and think about a winter wonderland, what do you see? Chances are sparkling blankets of snow is one thing that pops into your mind. That’s why if you are trying to create a winter wonderland you should definitely utilize sparkles in your décor. Tastefully incorporating sparkles into your wedding stationary is a great way to let guests know what to expect when the big day rolls around. You can also utilize them throughout the reception in wedding signage, floral arrangements, centerpieces, and even bridesmaids’ dresses.
Even though it’s winter you can still incorporate flowers into your big day. There are plenty of stunning flowers in season even during the chilling winter months and these are a great way to incorporate some sophistication and romance into your wedding. Pastel floral arrangements with a few pops of your accent colors are popular for winter weddings. You can also utilize white roses or hydrangeas throughout your venue to give the appearance of snow. It might appear like your guests are in a winter wonderland, but they’ll be cozy when enjoying delicious food and drinks before dancing the night away!
