    Winter Wedding Tips

    Winter weddings are touched with magic and sprinkled with utter romance, but they bring with them very particular challenges – each of them absolutely manageable. We bring you eight tips for your winter wedding.

    Winter Cover-Ups

    Winter weddings call for cover-ups. Especially if you are going between venues for your ceremony and reception, or thinking of venturing outside for photos. There are so many gorgeous options to choose from, a cardigan in a beautiful neutral shade looks stunning against white or a wrap in a deep jewel shade would contrast beautifully.


    With the combination of cold weather and central heating comes dry lips and skin. In the run up to your wedding slather your lips with a good lip balm and moisturise well consistently.  


    Depending on how cold it is on your wedding day, you could consider a pair of trusty tights – if you’re wearing a long dress they won’t be visible but they WILL keep you warm!

    One Venue

    If possible, try to have your ceremony and reception at the same venue, or at least at venues close by to each other. This will save you and your guests from having to venture too far in the cold and keep your timings unaltered by bad weather traffic delays.


    Candles are not just for winter, but the soft glow of candles does look particularly stunning as the light outside begins to fade. You can adorn your venue with twinkling little tea lights and arrange a combination of tall candelabras and shorter pillar candles on your tables. 

    Winter Colours

    A few of our favourite winter wedding colours include deep jewel shades, navy and gold, monochrome, all-white and anything sparkly. You are so spoilt for choice. You can browse a few of our winter wedding theme guides here:

    Hot Chocolates

    You could serve these to your guests as an arrival drink or as midnight treats. Not only are they delicious and indulgent but they will keep your guests lovely and warm.

    Outdoor Shoes

    There is no reason why you can’t wear those gorgeous heels, but if you’re venturing outside for photographs, maybe consider investing in a pair of boots? Firstly they will keep you warmer than a pair of heels and secondly, if it rains you’re beautiful heels won’t be ruined. Also, if your dress is long, no one will even notice.
