It may get dark early in winter, but don’t let that scare you. Winter weddings can be a magical event, here are a few tips to make your wedding special.
Getting caught in the rain is awful on your own but nobody sings love songs about the time it was unexpectedly sunny. Winter is romantic, winter is storybook – a winter wedding can be a magical event.
Themes and light
It may get dark early in winter, but don’t let that scare you. Use it to your advantage: play with light. Create a welcome respite from the cold and the dark. Tiny fairy lights, rustic bare light bulbs or flickering candles can create a number of different effects – take the time to look around: there are hundreds of beautiful ideas out there, from chandeliers to bulbs in mason jars, to suit your theme and style. In milder weather, stringing lights from trees in an outdoor venue brings to mind fantastic forests – consider a fairytale theme of toadstools, antlers, and bright red berries. As a bonus, points of light in the background will create beautiful, colourful out of focus highlights in your wedding photographs.
