Winter Wedding Inspiration

Today we have a guest post from Priti Patel, a writer with a love for everything fashion and weddings. Having been a bridesmaid in several weddings she hopes to use her experience to plan her own wedding one day!

While many people opt for summer weddings, the winter is actually a wonderful season to celebrate love.  It’s a time of year that lends a beautiful color palette and a warm feeling, despite the cold outside.  And an added perk is that you may be able to get venues and vendors at a lower price in the off-season!

Wintery whites, silvers, and blues provide the perfect contrast to deep shades of purple, red, and green. Twinkling lights, crystal accents, and silver glitter can all add just the right touch of sparkle, while candles and rich flowers can bring the warmth.  With the winter holidays, you can take advantage of Christmas themes as well. 

The latest wedding dress collections from designers also include styles that are perfect for winter nuptials.  A big trend has been a move away from white to more non-traditional colored wedding dresses.  While shades of pink were big in spring and summer, shades of champagne and silver are better suited for the winter season.  This platinum wedding dress would be gorgeous at a winter wedding, especially accompanied by a bouquet of jewel toned flowers.  Lace dresses and old Hollywood glamour style dresses are also amazing looks for this time of year.

Black and jewel tone bridesmaid dresses such as these from the White by Vera Wang Collection at David’s Bridal are also great for winter. Your bridesmaids will appreciate that they can easily re-wear dresses in these shades more easily than bright summer colors. You can personalize the dresses by adding sashes or belts to fit your color theme or to coordinate a mix and match effect.

Any brides planning a winter wedding?  What inspired your choice?
