Choosing The Best Winter Wedding Table Decorations!
The winter is a magical time of year to tie the knot and this is the perfect season to gather friends and family members together to celebrate the love that you share with your partner. Here at Reigate Hill we are able to offer a fantastic wedding ceremony to many couples, but despite the beautiful backdrop we offer it’s those finer details that you decide which will truly make the day perfect. Let’s take a closer look at the types of winter wedding table decorations that can be used to create a cosy and enchanting atmosphere, which we’d love to help you to create.
Capturing the Magic of Winter
You can create a really inviting feel by using the rich and warm tones of the season in your winter wonderland wedding decorations. Reds and greens help to set the tone of a winter wedding and make the location feel cosy and comforting. Tiny logs help to capture the magic of winter and they can be added to the centre of each table and perhaps sprinkled with a little glitter to make them extra frosty.
The Magic of Lighting
Creating winter themed lighting is easy when you add LED candles (no real candles allowed) or lanterns to your wedding table decorations, which can be very romantic and will work perfectly with a winter wonderland wedding theme. Both large white and red candles will work especially well with the winter theme, while you can also choose tiny tea light LED candles in decorated glass holders for an extra touch of sophistication. Strings of delicate white fairy lights create an effortlessly elegant tone while also adding a little sparkle.
Bringing Nature Inside
There are lots of different types of winter wedding table decorations that can be used to create a natural feel. Pine cones make great table decorations, as do large leaves. Add a touch of sparkle by spraying your natural decorations silver and arranging them artfully in the centre of each table. Not only is this an easy way to create an eye catching effect, these natural decorations are either free or very cheap, which allows you to free up your budget a little.
Coming on Christmas
If you are planning to get married close to Christmas, you can add a little festive magic to your winter wonderland wedding theme. Deck the halls with plenty of tinsel for a sparkly effect and add sprigs of holly to the centre of your tables. Of course, you will also want to make sure that you hang up plenty of mistletoe to help get your guests in the romantic mood. Candy canes make great wedding favours that can be added to the place setting of each guest and for an extra personal note you can have the candy canes engraved with the names of the happy couple. Of course, miniature Christmas trees are also ideal for Christmas themed centrepieces and you can wrap your Christmas trees with fairy lights and hang snowflakes from the branches to tie the theme together.
Say it with Flowers
Flowers are ideal for a wedding table centrepiece at any time of the year. In the winter, bright red poinsettias great a dramatic and very romantic effect and they can be interspersed with delicate white flowers. Springs of holly and mistletoe can also be added to the mix for the perfect seasonal effect, while you can really make the centrepiece stand out by wrapping a string of fairy lights around the flowers.
Let it Snow
If you have been dreaming of a white wedding but the weather refuses to cooperate, you can create your own winter wonderland wedding decorations to set the tone. Snowflake decorations are enchanting and easy to create, while you can create the illusion of snow in your table centerpieces with cotton wool. This is one area where you can get really creative and have a lot of fun. Lightly sprinkling glitter on the table will help to make things look extra frosty and the glitter will look magical when it catches the light cast by your LED candles or fairy lights.
Mulled wine and hot chocolate are ideal drinks that can be served to your guests on this very special occasion. No matter how cold it may be outside, you can be sure that your guests will be feeling toasty from head to toe as they sip these beverages. Of course, you can also add a decadent touch to hot chocolate by spiking it with rum or other types of alcohol for the adult guests, while eggnog is another winter treat that your guests are sure to love.
