When it comes to winter weddings, we are often drawn towards traditional colour palettes of festive green, red and gold or we opt for cooler tones such as blue, silver and grey.
However, at Sweetpea and Blossom we are anything but traditional and we are here to show you why an all-white wedding is the perfect option for the season. By using a variety of textures, details and layers of white, this elegant colour choice is guaranteed to capture your heart.
Let’s take a look at your wedding stationery. When it comes to white wedding stationery, we suggest choosing luxurious, thick card with embossed typography. You could tie it with a simple white silk ribbon or you could ask your stationer to design a motif for your special day which could be used across your on-the-day stationery too.
A winter wedding is all about effortless glamour, so you want to reflect this through your aisle style. A white bridal gown with a chic, simple silhouette is all you need to wear to wow. The groom will look extremely handsome in a classic black tux – or he could don a white suit if he wants to make a serious style statement. A singular white rose will be the perfect buttonhole for the groom and groomsmen.
When it comes to your centrepieces, opt for metallic gold urns filled with plenty of foliage and blousy white blooms. The metallic detailing will give your day a dash of luxury and you can match it to your cutlery, charger plates and glassware. Opt for white linen to cover your tables and line them with a leafy foliage garland for extra texture. You could work in white pillar candles for a hint of warmth and ambience. White draping is also a wonderful way to decorate your venue, whether you surround your guest tables at the reception with following drapes or use them to create an unforgettable ceremony space.
We are huge fans of floral installations here at Sweetpea and Blossom, whether that’s a flower wall or hanging displays above your wedding tables. By using an abundance of white florals throughout your winter wedding, you are setting the scene for elegance, romance and style. Consider using white roses, ranunculi, hydrangeas and greenery.
For your wedding cake, you can keep it simple and understated with delicate white icing or you can go down the decadent route with lots of ornate detailing, such as pearl or lace. The choice is yours! You could even create a luxury wedding dessert table with a plethora of white and ivory treats to make your mouth water! We adore the thought of displaying a handful of wedding cakes at different heights and sizes to really give your dessert table the wow factor.
A white colour scheme is always going to be a winner, especially if you want a winter wedding that is full of class and style.
