Winter Wonderland Wedding Tips

Winter Wedding Wonderland
Advice on how to heat up your winter wedding

The weather outside is frightful, but that doesn’t mean your wedding can’t be delightful. Simply Perfect by Melissa has great ideas to turn your wedding day into a winter wonderland. She offers her expert advice on all the essentials of wedding day planning and will help create a wedding that is sure to give you goose bumps.

Here are Melissa’s terrific tips

Use oversized crystal vases to hold flowers- the crystal will mimic ice. Another option is to add handing crystals to centerpieces or your ceremony background to add some glimmer.

Candles, candles, and more candles. The winter is perfect for candlelight ambiance. It is warm, inviting, and wonderfully romantic…everything that is needed for a cold evening celebrating love.

Velvet…this is the perfect time of year to use velvet. Your table linens or even the aisle runner are the perfect place to use this lush fabric.


Larger ball gowns made of satin are perfect this time of year. They are made of a heavier fabric that is not so good for the summer months. The sheen of satin and the glitz of crystal adornments is perfect for the winter bride.

Gowns with sleeves are also perfect for the winter and they are growing in popularity. For practical reasons, they add warmth…but they also lend themselves well to the season. Sleeves gowns come in a variety of shapes from ball gowns to sheathes.

Bridesmaids look great in deep plums, navy blues, silver/grays, or even doing a bridal party in whites or ivories. These dresses may also have sleeves for the season, or accessorized with fun faux furs or pashminas.

More for pictures…brides are wearing practical footwear when out in the snow taking their pictures. Choose a pair of warm boots to wear and they will add a fun touch to your pictures.

Use thick cardstock with letterpress writing.

Have the invitation etched on acrylic.


Create a signature drink for later in the evening.

Add a warm cocktail to the menu (Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Schnapps, Irish coffee).
