9 Creative Winter Wedding Ideas

9 Creative Winter Wedding Ideas

Traditionally, spring and summer are the two most popular months for Weddings but don’t discount Melbourne’s winter months. If you have planned to tie the knot in the coming months and are short on ideas to make it memorable, take inspiration from the Disney movie Frozen. Winter Weddings can be cozy, magical and romantic, so take a look at these ideas for a whimsical winter Wedding.

Wedding invitation1. Create warmth
Light and warmth for indoor Weddings in Melbourne is vital when it’s a blustery, cold day outside. Choose a venue for your ceremony and/or reception that will keep your guests comfortable, while allowing you to style your dream winter Wedding theme. One of the easiest ways to create a feeling of warmth in any environment is to use lamps and/or candles in addition to the overhead lighting. Mixing up the lighting helps to create soft pools of light to make a cold room feel inviting.

2. Bring a winter wonderland indoors, without the frostbite!
Decorate your Wedding and/or reception space with muted colour hues like ice blues, shimmery metallics and sleek whites. For an interesting Wedding reception idea, recreate a magical snow-covered forest with white tree branches adorned with (faux) snow, giant snowflakes, icicle-inspired crystal garlands and silver glitter. Your guests will be in awe.

3. Evoke drama and warmth
Walking down the aisle adorned with twinkling tea light candles arouses feelings of warmth and fantasy for the guests. Just be sure to keep your train well away from naked flames!

4. Keep the frosty feel

If you want to instill the chilly vibe, you can use lighting to give your venue ambience and turn your Wedding reception into a dazzling winter wonderland. Imagine, blue uplighting or images of wintry branches and snowflakes projected across the room for a frosty feel.

5. Leave the ice at the barPouring Chocolate Syrup Onto A Milkshake
Keep your guests toasty and warm during your ceremony and/or reception, with a bar serving rich hot chocolate and mulled wine instead of bubbly. This is a nice change and sure to surprise the guests at your Wedding.

6. Don’t shiver while posing for photos
When it comes to taking your Melbourne winter Wedding photos, look for warm, cozy locations. Think about beautiful historic buildings with a roaring fire place if it suits your theme. Or, if you’re into a modern look and feel, select an indoor space that’s contemporary such as a Warehouse or Art Gallery, with a stunning piece of modern art as a backdrop.

Beauty7.  Stylish and Warm
Brides can keep warm by complementing their perfect Wedding dress with a cute cape, gorgeous winter coat, or faux fur jacket. Don’t be afraid to make a jumper or cardigan the key piece of your Wedding outfit, just like the glamourous and fashionable Olivia Palermo and Keira Knightley did on their Wedding days. Bridesmaids will also look classy, elegant and warm with matching fur stoles or pashminas, and elbow length gloves.

8. Don’t throw that bouquet!
Keep your Wedding bouquet forever by opting for a bouquet made of vintage crystal brooches instead of flowers. They will last forever and twinkle just like little icicles as you walk down the aisle.

9. Bomboniere Baby
Wedding themed blankets and hot water bottles not only make cute thank you gifts for your guests, but they will keep them warm and toasty during your ceremony. For more fun Wedding favours, forget sugar coated almonds and give your guests sweet jars filled homemade cocoa and marshmallows.
