Go glitzy or go home: Here are 6 sparkling ways to style a glamourous winter weddingIt may seem like a million miles away, but brides planning a glamourous winter wedding need to get organised ASAP! Hosting a wedding during this season is perfect for your budget as it is generally considered to be off-season, so you will save on costs. Talk about an added bonus…
You are spoilt for choice with this charming glamourous winter wedding colour palette. If you want to go extravagant, think ‘Vintage Elegance’ or ‘Glitz and Glamour’. If you want to go back in time, think ‘Retro Romance’, ‘Old Hollywood’ or ‘Gatsby’ and if you want to go timeless, go ‘Classic Beauty’ or ‘Minimalistic’ Love. The colours, when combined, exude nothing less than luxury and lavishness.
Picture your own real life winter wonderland: cover a ballroom venue with white rose petals on the ground and fake snow, white or gold painted branches, candles (and lots of them), blooms and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and bursting blooms sitting beautifully as table arrangements. Line the tables with black table clothes and dress them with gold chairs, textured vases, exquisite gold tableware and crystal glassware.
Wedding invitations can really make or break the theme. Suppliers of UK wedding invitations, Adorn Invitations, highly recommend the thickest and highest quality paper in black or white to give a whimsical feel with a metallic gold finish. Foil imprints promise you a glistening and gleaming aesthetic that will truly impress your guests. Sleek and stylish, and with such a bold and beautiful colour palette, you can’t go wrong for your glamourous winter wedding.
When it comes to the wedding cake, treat your guests with a textured gold frosted or foiled cake that is filled with rich chocolate mousse and covered with white florals, or if you really want to break free of the traditional white cake and shock and stun your guests, go with a black tiered cake covered pleasantly with seasonal blooms.
Scattered among a dark and moody setting, pure white wedding flowers and vibrant green leaves will truly soften the atmosphere and balance everything out perfectly. Don’t be afraid to use up the space with elaborate blooms bursting from each table, the surroundings and the ceiling as it will keep your guests enclosed and warm. Seasonal blooms include blushing brides, lisaianthus, David Austin roses, daphnes, double tulips, hyacinth and sweet peas.
Be bold and different and dress your bridesmaids in black gowns. For the bride, choose a dramatically detailed long-sleeved white lace wedding dress. This is your chance to go with a hair-down wedding look…think Hollywood waves paired with a prominent winged cat eye-liner look and for the groom and groomsmen, a clean cut black suit with a gold tie. And of course, there’s always the classic wedding Converse…we love the gold pair pictured below.
