Winter weddings have a typical nature associated with them that we at Ontario Bakery are looking forward to breaking down. It’s possible to step out of the norm and still dive into your wedded winter wonderland! Here are some hot tips on How to Have a Stylish Winter Wedding:
Color: Less is more when it comes to color. Silver, white and crystal make great accents and add an extra degree of magic and luxury to your day. Use a white velvet aisle runner trimmed with white satin ribbon, or decorate the altar with a crystal curtain backdrop adorned with hanging strands of elegant white orchids for the ceremony. If you're having the ceremony outside, have your guests add to the ambiance by offering clear umbrellas. Pops of red holly and cranberry make for a beautiful holiday flare as well.
Invitations: A black-tie event is nicely conveyed by heavy card stock and a navy blue, chocolate-brown, or even eggplant font with hand calligraphy. For a fresh way to achieve a formal tone for your winter wedding, use thick, frosted card stock invitations in white or gold scripted ink. Send the the invites off in matching envelopes addressed in rich blue ink for the final regal look.
The Flowers: Fuller flowers, such as white hydrangeas and soft ranunculuses make a great bouquet and centerpiece. White boutonnieres are handsomely accented with greenery and ribbon alike. Feel free to embellish with crystals as well!
Centerpieces: Bring the bold simplicity of the floral design to your centerpiece. Fill vases with birch or winter white branches at the center of each tables. Have your florist fill the vases with tall winter-white branches and hanging crystals to reflect the light from the tables. Surround the centerpieces with votives for the perfect glow.
The Cake: Play up the season with a white, vintage-style cake, dusted with edible silver powder. For accents, have your baker add a white sugar ribbon and crystal drops cascading down one side of the cake.
