DIY Summer Centerpieces for a Vintage Garden Wedding

This centerpiece could not be any easier and it will look striking on your tables. Most of the materials can be bought at the nearby dollar store. You will need terracota plates, glasses, terracota or plastic pots and your favorite flowers.
Make sure that the pots are filled with soil. That will make them sturdier and stronger enough to carry the weight of the top levels. Place the glasses with flowers evenly around each terracota plate. If you are crafty and want to turn these centerpieces into a permanent garden decor, you may drill through the plates (the pots already have holes) and secure a stick – a broom stick will do – all the way through.

Christmas Wedding Colors: Forget the Red, Green and White

Unless you want your reception tables to look all white, red and green, these winter wedding colors will definitely wow your guests.

Switch the traditional white for Pantone’s Almost Mauve, it will look incredible on your tablecloths. If you want something more conventional try some shades of gray, natural linen, or antique white. They will make for subtle supporting colors to a white wonderland table decor.

Christmas Wedding Ideas: Venue Decor

An extensive array of candlelights and lanterns will create a romantic yet festive atmosphere. Even tealights placed in mason jars sing songs of a quaint but bucolic look. Nevertheless, be sure to check with the venue first. Opt for battery-powered substitutes if they have a “no open flame” policy. Plus the shimmering lighting, a glitter explosion can give your winter wedding decor that extra fancy look.

Adorn baubles and tinsel on garlands and trees for a twinkling effect. Just don’t go overboard. Sweep a staircase or a fireplace with greenery garlands to highlight your venue’s features.

For outdoor weddings, take advantage of the crisp colors of the winter landscape and welcome your guests in style.

Winter Florals for Christmas Weddings

Floral fragrances and beautiful colors aren’t just for summer weddings. An opulent winter wedding floral arrangement can be warm and add grandeur to this truly magical event. Moody colors are “in” and they are perfect for Christmas weddings.

Dark red roses will help you achieve a classic and timeless look. And for a crisp wintry feel, white roses or baby’s breath will do. Use them on floral arrangements or on your bridal bouquet.

But the traditional red and white palette shouldn’t be a constraint; berry hues or Pantone’s Ultra Violet can be equally magical. White flowers with deep moody accents can bring magic to your winter nuptials.

Try some mistletoe above the altar for your symbolic Christmas wedding kiss.

Affordable Winter Wedding Ideas that will Drop your Socks Off

Here are a few creative winter wedding ideas that won’t do a number on your wallets. Candles are all the rage during the holidays and if you wrap them in cinnamon sticks they will smell amazing—but should only be used as effects. However, because of a fire hazard, many venues don’t accept open flame decor. Make sure you check first.

A scattering of “snowy” pine branches and pinecones may also do wonders to your tablescape. Leverage poinsettias, holly, and other astonishing florals like perfectly opened amaryllis blossoms or hydrangeas that are in season to save some cash. Forget summer or spring flower decor and bring out the mistletoe! Have your guests share in the the kissing fun!

Alternative Winter Wedding Ideas

If you had enough of the Christmassy winter wedding ideas, go super upscale with a black and white wedding or introduce cozy blankets, scarfs and faux-furs! Leave the greenery outside and bring in iced branches with lots of bling. Better yet, use real or fake snow on your photos. You won’t regret it!

Another fantastic idea I personally love are beach weddings in the wintertime. They are way affordable and, depending on the time of year, there aren’t many tourists to crowd your pictures!

What to Serve at a Winter Wedding?

Also, winter is perfect for heavy meals and alcohol. And nothing says warm tummies more than a chocolate bar at a winter wedding! Present your guests with cookies, cakes, fig pies, mulled cider, marshmallows and a variety of chocolates, coffees and teas.

Cold weather is also a great excuse to indulge on some extra calories the foodie way. How does baked brie with rosemary, honey and candied walnuts sound? Maybe it’s time to bring in comfort foods like a creamy roasted tomato basil soup paired with butternut squash and spinach lasagna. Definitely original and on fleek.

Best Winter Wedding Locations on a Budget

If you are looking for the best wedding locations and you need to adjust to a budget, consider these ideas. Some botanical and local parks have indoor spaces to celebrate weddings. Don’t fret. These facilities can be landscaped in winter to look as beautiful as they do during summer or spring.

Moreover, be on a lookout for places that don’t traditionally host weddings to get a better deal. Love winter weddings at art galleries, small town Bed & Breakfasts, and rooftops, And guess what? By hosting a winter wedding, you may get an off-season price break. Another idea to save on your venue (and transportation) is to host the ceremony and the reception in the same location!
