As we pull on our woolly jumpers and fluffy socks, light the fire and head on into the depths of British Wintertime, you could be forgiven for thinking the crazy wedding season is behind us. Not so. Winter weddings continue to rise in popularity amongst today’s happy couples for a number of reasons. Savvy couples can make saving off-season for large financial wedding outlays. Savings can be made in your choice of venue and of course, depending on where you select, the honeymoon too.
Autumn and Winter are without doubt, beautiful seasons to marry in. The crisp autumnal air, the kaleidoscope of colours in the surrounding foliage. Of course, the festive spirit means choosing to marry this side of Winter is always going to be a magical time of year. So, just how do you rock the seasonal wedding? With fairy lights in the trees, and festive decor abounds, you already have a head start. For those plumping for a date early in January or February you give your invited guests a reason to look forward to celebrating the advent of a new year.
For the rustic glam Autumnal and Winter wedding draw inspiration from deep and rich colour tones. These colours not only mirror the warm, rich tones of the natural world around us; but convey a sense of luxury and sophistication. Deep maroon reds, vibrant purples, fresh green foliage and sprays of berries are fabulously decadent floral displays.
Of course, with shorter days and the nights drawing in, this is the season to create ambience with the use of selected lighting for your wedding reception. Candlelight is a surefire way to add a touch of romance to guests’ tables and the room in general. Be sure to mix up the style and height of your candles to add interest. Pillar candles, tea lights and floating votives are good choices. Add in some beautiful glass candle holders for further glamour.
Fairy lights and wedding lighting such as our new METRO LOVE letter lights provide the finishing touches to your venue. Ideal for the coming seasons, our Metro Love range follows the same high standards as our classic letter range. Lovingly handcrafted and finished in a warm black satin edged in gold leaf, our 4ft METRO LOVE letters would look equally as fab in a vintage barn setting, traditional country house or in an urban industrial city centre venue. Our METRO Boxed Love letters are the ultimate in versatility. With retro blackboard base, sparkly cabochon caps and driftwood casing; placed high or low we think they look just amazing!
Finally, table settings and glassware in copper or rose gold and coordinated napkins will compliment and showcase your rich colour scheme to perfection, adding a sense of regality to your wedding day dining.
