The air has shifted from a breezy chill to downright cold. Snowflakes fall, creating a winter wonderland. And wedding bells are ringing for you and your soul mate. Winter is such a whimsical time to have a wedding. As snow falls, coating the ground with natural, sparkling, décor, it transforms the world around you (unless you live in California, where you can then only dream of the snow!).

If you and your partner are planning your big day for the Winter months, it should be enchanting! And luckily, there are a few ways you can go about planning your wedding to make it a huge hit.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we want your Winter wedding to be rewarding. That’s why we have put together a few top Winter wedding planning tips to help you have a successful big day, so be sure to continue reading to learn more:

  • Play with colors. Nowhere does it say in a wedding handbook that you can’t use whatever color palette you wish. Yes, there are colors that bring out the wintry season. However, by no means do you must use those in your own wedding. You can create any wedding scene your heart desires, even a tropical one. A tropical scene would be quite the surprise for your guests and can even give everyone a break from the chilly weather that awaits them outside. Utilizing bright colors such as lime green, mango orange, or even pineapple yellow, will set a warm atmosphere, showcasing your tropical theme. You do not have to limit yourself to any color palette, even one that specifically complements Winter weddings.
  • Dress your bridesmaids accordingly. Your wedding is likely being held indoors. The heat will be turned on, there will be no breeze. Dressing your bridesmaids in furs and long sleeves may not work well with the venue conditions. Your bridesmaids will appreciate a lighter attire to accommodate the room temperature. If you are having your wedding outdoors, of course you will want to dress your bridesmaids in warm attire. Although, an outdoor ceremony does not necessarily mean an outdoor reception. It’s crucial to ensure that your bridesmaids are dressed for comfort, no matter the situation.
  • A cozy and welcoming reception. With winter being the coldest season, it’s important that your seasonal wedding be warm and inviting. You can do more than just turn up the thermostat. You can create a cozy environment with your décor. Surely your wedding day will stretch into the evening, which will call for proper lighting. You can keep the Winter spirit alive with candles, and they will give your reception a warm glow. The cold has people wanting to cozy up in their warmest clothes and blankets. You can bring that snug feeling to your reception with lush, comfy textures, such as velvet.

Winter is such a beautiful time of the year, and an equally beautiful time for a wedding. Here at Rose Petal Events, we can help you plan your big day.
