2016 Winter Wedding Trends

Soft Wintry Whites – The biggest trend that we’ve seen so far is the use of winter white and ivory colors which are perfect for brides wanting to use a neutral base with colorful accents. These base colors have been well represented in the decor, wedding cake, table linens and centerpieces, bridesmaids’ dresses, and other key wedding elements as well. This look will make any wedding look sophisticated and glamorous.

Flowers and Greenery –Add a touch of color to your neutral color base with a bright bridal bouquet, like the one pictured above. Accent everything with lots of seasonal greens like sage lamb’s ear, silver dusty miller, ferns, and pepper berries. For your bigger green elements, use evergreen, curly willow, or eucalyptus branches. Not only will these look great, but they will also smell great and bring an extra dimension and touch to even simple arrangements for your winter themed wedding.

Winter Wedding Menus – This winter menu selections are all about comfort foods. During the colder months foods like grilled cheese sandwiches, hot tomato soup, chicken and waffles, mashed potatoes, baked pasta, and others just seem to taste better. They also make you feel relaxed so you can enjoy your meal. This year, incorporate these belly warming foods into your menu planning.

Hot Drinks – Also big this year are hot coffee, tea, and cocoa bars. If you want to have a popular winter wedding, then this is one key element that you shouldn’t overlook. You can even get personal by offering calligraphed drink sleeves, or disposable cups with your initials printed on them. Also make the stations interactive and provide tons of creamers, different types of sugar, honey, maybe even peppermint-stick stirrers. You can even offer up a signature winter cocktail on your menu. Drinks like Hot Toddies and Spiked Apple Cider are perfect places to start.

Hopefully these few tips will help you start planning the winter wedding of your dreams. Be sure to visit back with our blog soon to read more of the best winter wedding trends for 2016!
