Berries are a common sight in winter. In fact, they thrive in the cold while all around the flowers and leaves are dying and falling away. Consequently, they make an excellent addition to any wedding bouquet and their vibrant red colour contrasts beautifully with the white surroundings. As well as their aesthetic qualities, berries also make an effective garnish for food, as they look great as part of a buffet. When selecting a venue for your wedding, consult with a service such as UK Wedding Savings, The Venue Report, as well as Wedding Blog Directories, and WeddingWire.

The way that sequinned tablecloths and clothes catch and reflect the light with every little movement looks beautiful under any circumstances, but when they are also reflecting the snow-white background they take on an entirely new quality. Similarly, jewelry, which has similar aesthetic qualities, will compound the effect. Whether it is sequins or jewelry that is sparkling, the visual effect is reminiscent of the way that snow itself sparkles under the sun.

Of course, one of the unavoidable drawbacks of a winter wedding is the cold weather, and while it’s easy to layer up and keep warm, it is harder to do so while maintaining the elegance and beauty of your wedding outfit. Probably the most famous example of how one can effectively incorporate long sleeves into their wedding ensemble is Kate Middleton, who donned a stunningly beautiful long-sleeved wedding dress for her wedding. Since then, long sleeves have been in vogue and more people are beginning to appreciate their ability to keep the wearer warm while also accentuating the arms.

Traditionally, furs have been used to keep us warm during the winter months, but they have fallen out of favour in recent times as people have become more aware of the unethical realities of their production. Consequently, fashion designers, as well as textile manufacturers, have formulated a number of different materials which have the physical qualities of fur without the need to harm any animals.

Because you don’t have to worry about the impact on real animals when wearing synthetic fur, you are free to select a material that resembles the fur of any animal you want. Snow foxes and lynxes are two of the most popular choices for winter weddings.
The chilly weather offers a wonderful opportunity for some creative wedding planning when it comes to accessories and fun wintery details. By taking advantage of the natural beauty of a winter wonderland you can send your guests away with a smile on their faces and a new appreciation for the beauty of winter.
