4 Ways to Create an Enchanted Winter Wedding Theme
We’ve written previously about a sparkly winter wedding theme
and today we’d like to take a look at the ways in which you can create an ‘enchanted’ atmosphere at a winter wedding. If you’re looking at this theme then winter is its perfect season – fog, a dusting of frost and soft winter lighting all contribute to creating a beautiful enchanted ambience and there is even more that you can do with décor and lighting to add to it.
ONE Mirrors can add a gorgeous ethereal touch, especially ones which have ornate touches. You can you these for wedding signs and table plans, one of the prettiest ways to write on mirrors is with a special pen, these come in a multitude of colours from websites such as Amazon.
TWO While winter weather may be cold, the light is beautifully soft and warm, creating a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, you can recreate the same mood indoors for your guests through the use of candles and lanterns. One idea we love is bell jars and mason jars filled with warm LED fairy lights (be sure to get ‘warm’ lights, cool lights create an altogether different atmosphere).
Warm LED fairy lights can also be hung behind the top table, draped up staircases and in all manner of different ways. Candles dotted around empty surface also create a beautiful atmosphere. We had a recent wedding at The City Rooms, which had the top table adored with hanging lanterns and candles.
THREE Draping can add a touch of softness and luxury to almost any space, fabrics like chiffon and organza is soft colours create the perfect effect. The City Rooms’ Ballroom is draped every Christmas for our festive weddings and Christmas parties and looks absolutely stunning.
FOUR Metallic accents add a magical touch to any winter wedding, silver is s personal favourite of ours for the winter months, but gold, rose gold and a plethora of other metallic work just as well . Subtle touches work so well, we love the idea of a cake table covered in a metallic cloth, metallic bridesmaid dresses also look stunning, as does a single layer of metallic on a wedding cake. You have so many options!
