It may be getting cold outside, but the latest trends in winter weddings are heating things up. Here’s a quick look at some of the creative twists Piper’s has noticed. Will you be following any of these trends?
Choose the right color palette
Reds and greens definitely reflect the holiday spirit, but these colors can be overdone and overwhelming. Instead, consider silver and white accents to add romance and glamour to your beautiful occasion. These elegant colors will dazzle your guests with their winter wonderland effect.
Think outside the flower box
White hydrangeas, Ranunculus and lilies of the valley make bold choices for winter bouquets. Add sparkle to your bouquet by wrapping the stems in ribbon embellished with crystals. White boutonnieres can be accented with a piece of greenery, or simply white ribbon.
Warm up with cocktail hour
As your guests arrive, serve white hot chocolate in small espresso cups and eggnog in small punch glasses. Gingerbread martinis and pear cider are other seasonal favorites for cocktail hour. Look for appetizers that use ingredients such as pecans, cheese, cinnamon and other fruits. Hot dips, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed olives and pot stickers are also good ideas for winter appetizers.
Bring the ice inside
Want to add dramatic flair to the reception tables and give your guests something to talk about? Bring in the icy-outdoors with ice-carved vases. Talk with your florist about filling the vases with tall white branches and hanging crystals to reflect the light. Surround the vases with votive candles for added effect.
