Winter Wedding Trends

As the minty fresh air and cold winds knock our door, the memories of sunny summer weddings seem long gone! It’s time to wrap up, hunker down, get cosy and sip on a hot chocolate whilst we share some beautiful winter wedding inspo with you. Think macramé, berry lips, ferns and foliage – we bring you the latest and most gorgeous trends to hit the wedding scene this winter. Some of the trends are so striking but defo worth the risk, especially if you’re a ‘stand out from the crowd’ kinda bride! Here’s a few ideas on how to achieve the most chic and stylish winter wedding…

 

Macramé

We just love macramé. It’s dreamy, whimsical and pretty much wonderful when it comes to wedding décor, props and even wedding gowns. It’s a versatile trend, in that it accentuates the perfect boho vibe, and looks pretty at home in an outdoor summer wedding set up too. But, we think it really comes into it’s own at a winter wedding… it can be warm and cosy too as part of your accessories or soft décor.

Berry Lips

All shades of plum, burgundy and berry stained lips are bang on trend for a winter wedding this year. In fact, a statement berry lip can really pull together the veil, dress and bouquet in a pretty special way. Are you daring enough to wear a berry lip for your winter wedding?  Visit your local beauty counter to get help to find the best shade to complement your skin tone, and try it out first on a few nights out to get used to the colour.

Foliage

And heaps of it! If you are planning a winter wedding, you should incorporate lots of greenery, chunky leaves and twigs into your arrangements. A messy, draping, dark green foliage works so well at winter weddings. Organic leaf crowns, ferns and thistles are beautiful winter accessories for any winter bride.

Blues and Golds

One of my fave décor combos – these colours work so well together and are high in the wedding trend stakes this winter. Midnight blues, tall candles, flashes of gold in centrepieces and even spray painted gold chairs make a stunning statement. We just love crushed velvet at the moment too… don’t you just love these chairs? The most lovely and intimate top table! (Below)

Let me know if you need a hand sourcing any of these!

Thistle Bouquets

Pairing thistles (my absolute favs 😍 – being Scottish and all!) with messy fallen autumnal leaves and thorns combined with pastels, delicate whites and pale burnt oranges make up the most glorious autumn and winter inspired bouquets. There are quite a few different types of thistle too, so you don’t have to necessarily incorporate blues into your bouquet to help spin that rustic winter look.

Draped Sleeves

This trend is one of the highlights of L’eto Bridal’s latest collection for 2018. Puffed, draped, long sleeves are so elegant, charming and utterly romantic (and also a little warmer for the winter bride!). Sweeping silhouettes and sheer long sleeves are definitely on trend this winter…
