Bright accents make winter weddings cheerful
November 05, 2009
Don't let drab weather affect your big day! When planning your winter wedding, keep things simple. Choose a neutral color palate like white or cream and add bold punches of color with accents. The pretty accessories will make the reception cheerful.
If you've been debating exactly what flower the bridal party should carry (or fretting over the high cost of floral arrangements) considers using balloons instead. This has been a popular trend in recent seasons. Not only is it cheap (and actually far more sustainable than flower arrangements) but it also gives the ceremony a light-hearted, whimsical vibe.
Another way to add some color to your day is by having custom-made labels for your wine bottles. Chose a pattern or color combination that you love (blue and white has been a major trend this season) and have the labels made up and applied before the reception.
To create a cohesive look, tie the design on the label into other aspects of the wedding like the invitations or the thank-you notes. This technique can also be used on place cards for seating assignments. The bright colors will pop against the neutral linens.
