Each season inherently has a uniqueness to it; and weddings held at various times of year give brides and grooms an equally unique opportunity to express themselves. Winter weddings showcase an elegance all their own, and with a little planning, these weddings can be as charming and warmly romantic as any summer party.
Popular winter wedding options in 2015 include warm,fur lined boots to comforting homespun desserts. One of the more trendy color palettes reflects the color of the classic winter landscape; and include traditional ivories, champagnes and shades of gray. From luxurious charcoal gray capes to pewter mugs of hot white chocolate, the myriad of ways to incorporate these colors result in a sleek and elegant look reminiscent of a cold snow covered day. For your bridal bouquets and ceremony arrangements, gray floral accents make your flowers look frosted and icy, and contribute aesthetic interest to a classic ivory bouquet.
Ivory and gray color palettes easily translate into creative tables; signs, menus, place cards and table settings all lend well to the theme. Opaque ivory stationary offers a sophisticated backdrop to artistic charcoal penciled wording; blue gray napkins can be encircled by eucalyptus leaves and ivory roses; and the cake itself becomes a work of art when adorned with flowers air brushed with silvery gray paint.
When considering a wedding at this time of year, pay close attention to any span of time your guests might be exposed to a chill. Delay your receiving line until your reach the reception venue, where you can have a roaring fireplace and toasty treats; or consider portable heaters Depending on venue, roaring fireplaces near doorways that will be opened often. Keep a pile of gray and white blankets nearby, or even a variety of vintage thrift store cardigans and capes to provide extra warmth when in drafty areas.
