Summertime Holiday Wedding Plans

holiday weddingWe are in the middle of long, hot summer days, and talking about the holidays seems a little out of place. But if you are planning a holiday wedding, experts say that this the perfect time to select a florist and begin to decide on the s for your special day. But before you assume that all florists can do the job equally, understand that not all florists routinely help to coordinate successful wedding events, or have the experience you will need to stage a wedding during one of the busiest times of the year for events and parties.

Most florists require a few weeks to a month to plan for wedding s, but we say its never too early to start planning especially in the busy season. This will ensure that not only does she have beautiful s she will love, but that they are appropriate for the season, the venue and her budget. Holiday weddings are considered ones which take place in the period between Thanksgiving weekend and extending through the New Year. This time of year is spectacular for magical, shimmering weddings – but also pose some challenges. Venues, caterers, and florists will all be booked early for these times, so it is imperative that a bride takes care of these decisions early on. Also, because not all s are available in the winter, brainstorming with a professional wedding designer now will allow brides to experiment with alternatives and ideas to make sure the bouquets and arrangements are just as she dreamed.

Choosing true seasonal s- such as poinsettias – is a wonderful way to infuse the spirit of the holidays into your celebration. However, any palette of reds and whites is most popular for winter weddings. Flowers such as red roses, calla lilies, amaryllis work wonderfully, especially paired with winter greenery and evergreen foliage. They are also often accented with metallics, crystals, and shining ornaments. Adding natural details such as holly berries, evergreen boughs, and natural sticks result in a lovely winter centerpiece; add flickering candlelight or a glowing lantern for warmth and ambiance.

Winter Weddings with City Line Florist

winter weddingThe wonderful thing about having a winter wedding is that they allow for either the exploration of non-traditional designs, decor ideas and color palettes, or you can do the traditional winter white. A color palette that lends itself to both of these themes is using classic colors such as ivories and grays.

White on White

The elegance of white as a primary wedding color is undeniable, and decorating in mainly white can take your décor to new heights of chic. A bride wearing white will look amazing against white drapery, accents and s. White accents such as feathers, birch tree branches, pearls and white s like roses and lilies can complete your decor memorably. White crystals and candles can further enhance the white on white effect and dazzle everyone who attends.

Emulating winter patterns, textures and hues in your reception décor can make for a truly magical wintertime effect. Evergreen branches dusted snow-white can help to create the atmosphere of a serene winter landscape. Hang sheer drapery or white satin for a stylized snowy effect. Lighting can also enhance your indoor winter atmosphere; with the right illumination, the look of a chic winter evening can delight the senses. Consider projecting winter imagery or scenery on the walls in elegant, slow-moving patterns.

Trending Winter Wedding Colors

Spring and summer weddings are all about bright colors and pastels. However, in winter, sophisticated color makes for the perfect wedding décor palette. Make the most of light ivory tones and elegant shades of grey; they are trending now in winter wedding decor and design. Ivory hydrangea can enhance the elegance, but just about any type can serve as a counterpoint.

Centerpieces for Winter

Reception elegance is highlighted with creative, innovative centerpieces. Use tall, stately pillar candles and surround them with elegant winter elements like sinewy sticks and twigs, pine cones, birch branches and other natural elements. Flower like roses, lilies, orchids and hydrangea also work very well in winter wedding centerpieces.winter wedding

Complete the Look with Artful Accents

Playing up key winter embellishment ideas and accents can help you to take your wedding day décor to the next level. Don’t be afraid to use rhinestones, glimmering fabric accents, gems and crystals to simulate the look of shimmering snow. Glinting patterns on grey-accented centerpieces, ivory table cloths, drapes, chair covers and the bride’s dress can add the perfect elegant details. Accent s like hydrangea and spray roses are also beautiful wedding décor additions.
