Winter Decor Is Oh-So Romantic
When it comes to creating a romantic wedding environment, magical and whimsical winter decor does the trick. Consider offering your guests cozy blankets so they can snuggle up during the ceremony, which also duel as a useful and sought-after wedding favor. At Red Gate Farms, we can help create a warm ambiance with fire pits, flaming standing heaters and glowy cafe twinkle lights that will make you and your guests look gorgeous in photos.
If you’re a Christmas lover who wants to keep the holiday spirit going, a winter wedding is a fabulous way to accomplish that. Plus, right after Christmas, holiday decor is heavily discounted, so you can save money on traditional accessories like pine wreaths (which actually make gorgeous centerpieces!), high-end ornaments, Christmas trees, and dazzling accent lights.
If you want a winter wedding sans the Christmas theme, adding lush, velvet table runners, candles, and seasonal floral arrangements can elevate the room for a winter soiree that doesn’t look like Christmas morning.
Don’t think that you have to stick to the traditional red and green color scheme either! Royal colors, like deep purple, turquoise, emerald, indigo, gold and silver can be used throughout your decor to create a subtle palette and sophisticated winter theme.
Interactive stations for winter weddings are a fun way to add personality to your winter theme! Winter wedding photo stations are a classy upgrade to the popular reception photo booth. Decorate your photo station with wintery props like a gorgeous vintage sleigh, pine trees dusted with sparkling snow, chic glitter backdrops, and romantic twinkle lights for an Instagram-worthy photo memoir your guests will cherish.
Winter Bridal Looks Are Stunning
If you’re a bride who loves to accessorize, a winter wedding is an absolute must. A statement coat is an excellent way to show off your personality while adding a fashionable layer to your wedding look. For a timeless winter style, opt for a faux or vintage fur coat or wrap. If you want to keep things unexpected or even a little edgy, choose a sleek leather jacket or a lightly worn denim jacket for a cool and casual bridal style. If a statement coat isn’t your thing, a long-sleeved wedding dress will keep you warm and cozy for outdoor photos, and show-stopping, big ball gowns were made for winter brides! Love vintage style? Opt for a luxurious fur hand muff — and gift matching ones to your bridesmaids!
Winter wear styles go beyond the bride as well. The groom or groomsmen can wear velvet or plaid vests, or even vintage newsboy caps for a stylish and timeless touch. Your bridesmaids will stay warm and chic in customized shawls, which also make for excellent thank-you gifts for your bridesmaids.
Simply having a winter wedding can also help you look your best. During the winter months, the low humidity in the South can make your hair and makeup last longer, and photographers swear by the soft, natural lighting for outdoor photos during the winter months. Plus, who could beat the beauty of Red Gate Farms in the winter? Frost-bitten mornings paired with sun-kissed afternoons provide ample photo opportunities.
