Winter Wonderland Weddings

Planning a "winter wonderland" theme for your event? Below are some considerations to get you started.

The first consideration is color. Winter Wonderland means different things to different people. Creating your look really depends on your vision and what colors you want to work with. When you think of a Winter Wonderland, what comes to mind? For some, it is the glistening snow and icicles against the blue sky. For others, it is silver, gold and crystals.

Once you have selected a color scheme, you can start creating your Winter Wonderland through the room decor and lighting, as well as small touches throughout your reception.

Lighting and Linens: More and more couples are incorporating uplighting and other lighting effects into their reception. With the lighting, the entire ballroom can be cast in an icy blue tone to help create your winter wonderland. Consider adding ceiling draping and projecting or snowflakes or stars on the draping.


In addition to adding lighting effects, you can also select linens that not only enhance your color scheme, but also contribute to the overall ambiance. In addition to table lines and lighting, you may want to include chair covers with silver chair wraps or diamond buckles for a finished and elegant look.

Centerpieces: The centerpieces are always a focal point so you should take extra care in choosing centerpieces. You can select from traditional floral centerpieces to candelabras and chandelier trees. If you love flowers, you can select flowers that match your theme. For example, if you are going with silver and light blue, select light blue flowers such as hydrangea and mix them with ivory flowers and use silver branches as accents. You can even consider spraying the ivory flowers with silver glitter or coating the tips of the flowers silver. There are many flowers available in ivory so ivory flowers with a touch of pale pink or gold also work well.
If you want to have more of a candlelit effect, incorporate these same colors with pillar and ball candles in various sizes displayed on mirrored bases or gold trays. In addition, consider using silver candelabras with draped crystals to add sparkle and shine.

Another great idea is to incorporate chandelier trees into your decor either as table centerpieces or buffet accent pieces. There are several different options with the chandelier trees. There are metal trees and trees made with manzanita and birch branches. In addition to crystals, you can hang flower balls, mirrored strands and votives from the branches to enhance the look of the trees. Also consider branches with lighting to give your centerpieces a real wow effect.

Wedding Cake: One of the main focal points of any wedding reception is the wedding cake so you should take care in selecting a cake that will convey your theme. The most popular choice is to incorporate snowflakes in the design of your cake and you can add a touch of color with a satin blue or gold ribbon. If you are incorporating tree branches into your decor, you can use the branch tips to decorate your cake or even add a glistening crystal snowflake as your cake topper.

Equally beautiful is a classic white stacked wedding cake with your monogram covered in Swarovski crystal with crystal ribbon. You can then complete you look with other accessories covered in the Swarovski crystal, such as the cake knife set and even initials for your bridal bouquet.
