First of all, I must say I LOVE winter weddings. They give the perfect opportunity to extend the celebrations, get family and friends together and enjoy the festivities. If you are considering a winter wedding, please let me know. Snow or not, the photographs are always amazing.
Another reason to consider winter weddings is the cost. As it is outside the peak season, you could therefore save some money or spend it on a venue you may not be able to consider if you were having a summer wedding. Although it may be colder in the winter months and the daylight limited, your wedding could be sensational. Imagine the photographs of the venue with that first frost settled on the ground, adding that natural sparkle.
Yes, there is more to consider for a winter wedding but believe me, it is worth it.
With winter weddings becoming increasingly popular, Your Planning Angel spoke to Chelsea Flower Show finalist Nicole Gamlin about her top 10 choices for winter wedding flowers.
Silver is a key colour on the fashion and design circuits. Silver gives compositions a quieter character and a more romantic flavour.
When viewed against brilliant white it creates a visual WOW that I like to use in winter wedding displays. Using silver with a Christmas wedding will keep the theme light and sparkly, creating the ‘snow queen’ effect. Add pine cones dusted with snow, to create a natural look. Silver lanterns with soft candlelight, displayed on wooden logs – creates a relaxed ambience.
If you have a sparkly wedding dress and wish to continue the theme, swarvoski crystals and silver glitter can really shimmer.
Top ten silver flower and foliage choices for a Winter Wedding:
- Artemisia ‘Silver Queen’.
- Eryngium giganteum ‘Silver Ghost’.
- Stachys byzantine.
- Scabiousa stellate.
- Senecio cineraria ‘Silver Dust’.
- Silver Kochia.
- Silver spruce.
