Planning a winter wedding for next year or adding the final touches to your 2015 winter wedding? Transform your chosen venue into a winter wonderland with these must have decorations. These festive delights are guaranteed to wow your guests as soon as they walk into the room!
Pinwheels and paper fans can be used in so many different ways at your wedding. Overlap and hang them at different heights flat against a wall to create an eye-catching back drop for a photo station or photobooth. If you’ve opted for a venue with a high ceiling like a converted barn or marquee you can create an amazing spectacle in the beams with a mixture of metallic pinwheels & paper fans, honeycomb decorations or tissue pom poms! To make it feel even more festive why not string fairy lights along the ceiling or around the perimeter of the room, there are so many companies that can do this for you. My personal favourite lighting style for winter weddings is festoon lighting, the bulbs are larger than fairy lights so they create a really warm glow in the room.
Candles can create a really relaxed atmosphere, whether you place them in your ceremony room, reception or wedding breakfast room. For the ceremony opt for large metallic lanterns filled with cream pillar candles and equally space them up the aisle. For your reception or wedding breakfast adorn your tables with snowflake themed candles and an array of decorated jam jars filled with your basic tea lights. Jam jar candles are so cheap and easy to make, simply hold onto your sauce & pickle jars in the run up to your wedding day then decorate with festive accents like sprayed holly berries, jute and ivy.
Create a focal point for your table with a stylish centrepiece. Metallic and glittery animals like our gold or silver glitter reindeer are perfect for adding a touch of sparkle. They’d look great amongst some sprayed holly and ivy upon a rustic tree slice.
A festive wreath can make an excellent base for your table centrepiece, it would look beautiful with a Gothic metallic candelabra placed in the middle with deep red tapered candles. You could make your own mini wreaths out of fir or rosemary and use these to showcase your guests names on the table.
Confetti balloons are so popular at the moment and they look so amazing! There are many ways you can use these cheerful glitzy balloons for your wedding. Fill them up with helium and tie them to the backs of your guests’ chairs, at the end of the night they can take them home! They’d also look really effective on long strings at the alter either side of the bride and groom. You could even try incorporating them into a balloon arch with other metallic balloons for the bride and groom to walk through once they are married!
Festive confetti like our silver snowflake table scatter makes for a really effective table decoration. Mix and match a metallic confetti with sparkling gems to add more variety. Table scatter and sprinkles are a great way to make your dessert or sweetie tables look more interesting and festive!
Garlands and Bunting
Whether you buy or make your own, bunting and garlands make for one of the easiest ways to decorate your wedding venue. This honeycomb bauble garland is perfect for adding a festive touch to the room, simply drape it along your dessert table or drinks reception.
