Winter – the season of snow, warm fireplaces, cozy blankets and hot cups of cocoa. It is one of the most wonderful times of the year. If you agree, then it might also be just the right time for you to tie the knot. While some people shiver at the thought of a winter wedding, it actually makes for a beautiful setting. The weather and snow can add uniqueness and character to your event, instead of posing a hindrance to your celebrations. While planning your wedding ceremony is your personal call, we do have some tips up our sleeves for your reception.
Here’s how you can create the perfect winter wonderland wedding reception:
1. Create a cozy reception space
Decorate your reception space in a way that lends it a cozy, warm vibe. Think candles, faux fur, snug accents. You can also bring in a boho appeal to space by using fairy lights and throw rugs. It will make the venue look and feel warm but also paint the venue in a more welcoming light.
2. Choose a wintery color palette
Unlike what some people might have you believe, you don’t need to have an all-white wedding just because it is winter. There is a wide color palette that you can incorporate in your decor. Blues, golds, silvers and even jewel tones complement the season perfectly.
3. Keep your guests warm
Whether it means getting heaters or keeping extra blankets on hand, you will want to ensure that your guests warm during the reception. You must also make sure that your food does not go cold.
4. Serve warm beverages during cocktail hour
Swap the cosmos and margaritas for cups of cocoa or coffee. You can also serve drinks such as mulled wine or a hot toddy. With their fingers wrapped around the hot drinks, your guests will be reminded of what a wonderful time winter is.
