Winter weddings are breathtakingly beautiful. It’s the season of magic with snow fall, warm winter jumpers, and roaring log fires. It’s the most romantic time to get married, remarried or renew your wedding vows.

Getting married in the coldest months of the year requires a few additional extras than a spring or summer wedding. Here are some ideas to help you plan a wonderful winter wedding.

Wrap Up

Whether you are having a traditional church wedding or something completely different, keeping warm will be a priority. You don’t want to cover up your wedding gown or the groom’s suit with a huge coat, but there are plenty of other options.

Consider a fur, velvet or lace trimmed cape to go over a wedding dress and team with a fur muff to keep your hands toasty. A fur cape looks elegant whether cropped or floor length.

To cover bridesmaid’s shoulders, opt for a fur wrap, a woollen shrug, or a cropped fluffy knitted cardigan embellished with clear sequins or glitter thread. For the groom, choose classic leather or suede gloves, a checked scarf or a cashmere jumper, like these from The Edinburgh Woollen Mill, that can be worn underneath his suit jacket.

Seasonal Tones

Winter is full of seasonal colors that work beautifully for a wedding. There are colors associated with this season that you wouldn’t see at a summer wedding, so make the most of them. That doesn’t mean you have to pick a red wedding dress – although they look beautiful against a snowy backdrop – but using deep colors will add a winter feel to your wedding.

Consider using dark reds, forest greens, plums, midnight blue and brown tones. There’s also greys which work particularly well for suits. But if you love summer tones and are desperate to incorporate them into your wedding, then choose the right hue. For bridesmaids dresses opt for a dusky pink instead of bright fuchsia, or gold rather than sunshine yellow.

Festive Footwear

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to ditch heels. Sandals and court shoes are elegant and work just as well for a winter wedding as they would for a summer ceremony. Choose heels with silver embellishments, small touches of dark color like bows or lace, or go for something a different and seasonal with a fur ankle strap.

If you want something to keep your feet warm under your dress, consider boots. There are so many beautiful designs, from white designs with lace trim, delicate embroidery, fur adornments or velvet lace up. Search online for inspiration.

For the groom, choose traditional brogues or smart ankle boots in browns or blacks. Opt for fur lining to keep his feet nice and toasty!
