Winter Theme Wedding
Are you planning a winter theme wedding?
Many Couples planning winter theme weddings have requested information and A-wedding Day is up for the challenge. Most need creative ideas.So, without much ado, lets see how to plan a dream winter wedding.
When you close your eyes and picture winter, you associate it with sparkling, crisp snow that is so white it sometimes looks bluish. I bet that even if you live in an area that does not experience real winter this word conjures the snow scene in your mind.
Winter Wedding Ideas
Attire for the Bride, Groom and Wedding Party
Winter is best represented by white, silver, platinum and light blue. These are the perfect color choice for a winter theme wedding. You can incorporate these colors in the bride, groom and wedding attendants attire. White for the bride and groom, light blue and / or silver for the attendants. However, you have other options too.
You may have the bridesmaids dresses made of fabric with snowflakes or stars motif that may even accented with white fur-like fabric.
Since you are planning gifts for your bridesmaids and flower girls, present them with Swarovski crystal on silver with or without pearls, or pearl jewelry on silver such as that offered in our discount mall.
Tiaras should also be studded with swarovski crystals and or pearls on silver. The Swarovski jewelry glistens like snow in the sun while pearls offer the prism. What a wonderful yet inexpensive way to have your bridal party match the winter theme of your wedding.
Choose Winter Theme Invitations and Stationary
Whether holiday- or season- related, there are many winter scene stationery items and invitations motifs available to choose from, including do-it-yourself, print your own stationery.
Winter Wedding Reception
Look for a reception hall that has a fireplace.
If lighting a real fire is not permitted, use make-believe logs that look like real lit fireplace. Many stores carry them. You may also check with your local theater for props.
Use silver serving pieces, glass or crystal drink wear and winter white Dishes.
Decorate with silver, white, platinum and light blue.
Use one of the colors or coordinate these colors for your table cloths and napkins, garlands, streamers, icicles, tinsel, balloons, ribbons, flowers with silver ribbons in silver vases, flickering light strings, snow flakes or stars etc.. You may wish to spray your decorations with sparkle or fake snow. White and blue tulle will also help create a winter atmosphere.
If you can afford it, hire an ice sculptor. If not, do it yourself. Make your own ice sculpture with kits. For information go to http://www.2.a-weddingday.com/weddingcrafts/makeyourownicecarvings.html. Ice sculptures will be a magnificent addition.
If your wedding reception venue permits it, be sure to use candles to depict warmth. Either or both, ice sculpture and candles make very elegant centerpieces.
Ideas for Winter Wedding Centerpieces
For added effect, place your centerpieces on a mirror.
Winter Wedding Favor Ideas
Gifts of crystal, silver, candles, soaps, silver or crystal picture frames that are also place card holders.
Decorate the wedding favors with white tulle, white-light blue or silver ribbons, silver bells, snow flakes, white flowers, etc.
Use white, silver, platinum and/or light blue, pew bows, flower arrangements where white and light blue are dominant and are tied with silver ribbon. Place your unity candles in silver candle holders which you may choose to decorate with white flowers, or leave the silver to glisten.
Spray glitter on the petals in the flower girl's basket.
Winter Theme Wedding Cake
Place a layer of cotton balls or tulle over coiled flickering white bulbs all around the wedding cake so it looks as if your cake is sitting on snow.
How about a cake decorated as a winter village or a snow scene?
Today, many bakers can actually "print" a picture on the cake using edible food coloring, or you may have your cake look like a star or decorated with snow flakes.
Winter Bridal Accessories
Choose a collection of matching accessories. Most collection will include most of the accessories for your ceremony and reception. (A unity candle set, guest book, pen, ring pillow, toasting flutes, cake serving set, and garter).
You may choose a collection that is adorned with white flowers, such as lilies of the valley, gerbera daisies, roses, calla lilies, carnations, gardenias, magnolias, alstromeria and snowball mums.
You may choose a collection that is adorned with white ribbons, pearls, Swarovski crystal or rhinestones, Angels, holiday motifs.
If you prefer non-white accessories, silver/platinum are available.
Winter Wedding Music
Consider classical collections, Seasonal songs, solo pianist, harpist or string quartet.
