A snowy colour palette
The first thing to decide before you start thinking about details and décor has to be your colour palette. Obviously, crisp whites play a big part in a snow-themed day but what can you put with this? Well, the colours that you choose will probably be governed by the overall style of the day you want. Chic and elegant? Bring in frosted tones and maybe some golden touches. Rustic? You need natural greens and a few lush reds with wooden accents or for a more luxe look, think about greys, beiges and camel tones because these will really show up against the bright white.
Your wedding day look
Well, a winter wedding really needs a fabulous gown and for style with a dash of practicality, go for a gown with gorgeous long sleeves or opt for separates. A romantic tulle skirt with a luxurious cashmere knit is a really fabulous look. Don’t forget some warm accessories too – a glam bolero or chunky knit scarfs are great choices. For super cute photos outdoors, a huge wrap that you can both snuggle in is perfect. If it’s snowy and slippy outside, beautiful bridal flats will look amazing. When it comes to accessories, choose something with a little sparkle and, of course, Glitzy Secrets has a huge selection of crystal wedding accessories for you to browse. They also have the most sensational snowflake brooches which would be so on theme!
For the guys, pretty much anything goes as long as it works with your wedding day style. Layered tweeds are ideal for a country look or a perfectly fitted black tux or sharp grey blue suit are top choices for a more sophisticated affair. The same goes for bridesmaids – whatever suits the day will suit them perfectly. Again, cardigans and knits are great for a folksier look while sequined, sparkling evening dresses are the thing for elegant events.

Styling your snowy wedding
One of the best things about this theme is that there are so many styling options open to you. However, whatever look you choose, make the most of your surroundings and really embrace the season’s natural beauty. So, if your ceremony room has an amazing view, focus everyone’s attention on that by creating some unmissable decorations that really draw the eye. A stunning ceremony backdrop makes the biggest moment of the day really special.
You can also use nature for lots of other decorations too. Pine cones as escort cardholders or place markers are brilliant and easy to DIY. Evergreen foliage makes gorgeous garlands, table decorations and even small accents for place settings too. Of course, hanging wreaths are also fantastic at this time of year and look ace behind your top table.
Cakes with snowy white icing, stationery with wintery motifs, hot chocolate bars, mulled wine and all your favourite seasonal treats have to play a part in your day. In fact, because this really is everyone’s Christmas dream come to life, there’s absolutely no limit on what you can include. This is the time when all your romantic Christmas fantasies come true.
