Winter Wedding Trends

Traditionally weddings are held in high summer.

But times they are a changing and more brides-to-be are opting to create their very own winter wonderland wedding.

From snow to Santa, moody skies to magical festive decorations, there really are so many reasons to choose winter for your big day.

And even better, we’ve pulled together some of the key trends for the upcoming festive season to help you create the perfect winter wedding.

Opulent and decadent

Get set to dazzle your guests and bring a touch of drama to your day by choosing jewel tones for your colour palette.

There’s no better way to celebrate the festive season than by choosing to decorate with rich, decadent burgundies, bottle greens and amber tones.

From table linen to stationery, you can add vivid colour to your venue, and even introduce your chosen colour palette with coloured table linens.

And jewel tones aren’t just for décor – your bridesmaids dresses could pick up the theme, whether in exactly matching shades or perhaps mixing and matching their dresses in gem-inspired dresses in a variety of rich, alluring shades.

Textured and luxurious

Nothing says winter more than wrapping up against the crisp weather. But keeping warm doesn’t mean you need to dial down the glamour.

Think luxury fabrics like velvet and faux fur, tweeds or even tartans that can easily be incorporated into your theme and pick up on the luxe colour palette.

You could even look to add a touch of luxe by opting for velvet in the groom’s attire. A velvet jacket in rich shades will tie in with your jewel tone theme and is perfect for the winter groom who wants to stand out!

Who says the groom has to have all the fun?

Gone are the days when the bride only opted for a wedding dress in the traditional sense.

Choose from skirts and tops or jumpers and trousers; add maybe think outside the box and think separates rather than the traditional wedding dress.

Separates allow you to show off your personality and are also incredibly practical for cold days.


Add layers and warmth with cashmere or delicate knits if you’ve decided on a jumper for your top half and maybe go for maximum glamour on the bottom with sequins, lace or even feathers!

Warm up your winter wedding and feature comfort food that will leave your guests wanting more!

Take inspiration from the season and go for delicious and decadent pies, stews and soups.

Or maybe even incorporate Christmas elements into your menu plan and go big with a glamorous festive feast with the traditional roast with all the trimmings. But if that sounds too much, why not take inspiration from Christmas and opt for subtle influences like spiced orange and cranberry cocktails at the reception or mince pies served after dinner.

Say it with cake

winter wedding trends 2019Winter weddings should also have an element of whimsy. And one of the easiest ways to inject some fun is with your cake.

Drip cakes – cakes topped with drizzles of decadent icing – are the cake of the moment and whether you choose to drizzle caramel or icing, syrups or glazes, you can add a touch of whimsy your guests will love.

Raise a toasty toast

More and more weddings are featuring a chill area for guests to relax in. And what’s the ultimate relaxing winter warmer? Hot chocolate of course.

Why not create an entire hot chocolate station with candy canes, cinnamon stirrers, marshmallows and lots of whipped cream.

And don’t stop there…add Baileys, whiskey, Amaretto, coconut rum and more to the bar and give your guests the option to spike their hot chocolate with something a little stronger!!
