Planning a winter wedding? This season, brides can take advantage of the deep and rich winter colors that allow for greater latitude of colors, unlike spring and summer brides, who traditionally stick to true pastels. Brides can create their own unique winter themes by incorporating the jolly and romantic holidays.
Brides can incorporate rich burgundys, ruby and or other reds with touches of gold and contrasting greens to set the mood for a Christmas wedding reception. Use poinsettias and amaryllis as the spotlight on floral décor while adding white roses, gardenias and lilies as accents. Fabrics such as vintage satin, velvet and silk add a rich and festive touch as well, putting your guests in a jolly holiday bliss.
If you’re planning to get married around the most romantic time of the year, you might want to consider using red and white color schemes. Play up your Valentine theme with a heart shaped cake or soy, tea light candles adding a sensual aura at your guest tables. If you’re wondering what the perfect floral arrangement is for this themed wedding, you got it! Roses, roses, roses everywhere! Brides can use pure shades of reds or pink. Don’t be afraid to add black for a romantic modern feel or aqua blue to spice it up!
