If you’re struggling for inspiration on a winter or New Year’s wedding date, here’s some ideas we’ve seen from previous brides and grooms in the Lake District.
Some people think a winter wedding equates to a winter wonderland theme and that that’s easy to envision and execute. Well, sometimes that’s not the case. Finding the balance between Christmas and wedding, festive but elegant can be a tricky one.
Anyone seeking the perfect Christmas touch on an otherwise chic and delicate décor is going to need a bit of help here and there, and we hope we’ll be able to pass on a bit of our knowledge and experience.
If you’re having a New Year’s Eve wedding that runs into the evening and is something of a dual celebration, why not have your bridesmaids don full length gowns – maybe chiffon and floaty! – and set a black tie theme for the rest of your guests? Set a chic and clean décor about the room (or tepee?) and add small, glittering touches with candles and tea lights here and there. Line outdoor lanes, paths and walls with outdoor lanterns and consider providing your guests with winter blankets and hand warmers if they’re going outdoors or sitting in a grand church hall.
You can warm the room with a fluid hint of a warmer colour like gold, taupe or rich purple. Some beautiful centrepieces include winter flowers in vintage birdcages and frosted bouquets in delicate old vases. You can add touches of lace here and there for that odd little touch of snow-like texture.
Vintage typewriters can also help you create a stunning and classy print to use on your invites, place cards and everything else.
