Winter weddings in Southern California can sometimes lack that classic wintery feeling. With still bright sunsets and mild temperatures, adding subtle yet festive touches into your big day will be sure to WOW your guests with its winter flare.
Using Rich Fabrics
Embrace the richness of the season with touches of velvet in your decor. Deep jewel tones like emerald green or burgundy, when used sparingly, can add a luxurious feel without overshadowing the overall elegance.
Elevate your table settings with the understated glamour of gold accents. Incorporate gold-rimmed glassware, flatware, or even delicate gilded leaves in your floral arrangements to infuse a sense of sophistication.
Opt for the classic allure of candlelight but with a touch of refinement. Choose taper candles in neutral tones or delicate metallic holders to create an atmosphere of understated romance.
Festive Bar Twists
Craft a sophisticated beverage experience by offering a curated selection of mulled wine or whiskey. A well-appointed bar with crystal glassware and expertly chosen spirits adds a touch of sophistication to your celebration.
Envelop your celebration in a sense of purity with an abundance of white florals. Consider incorporating ivory roses, orchids, or calla lilies for an elegant and timeless bouquet and floral arrangements.
Indulge the season in the culinary sense by taking a look at your caterer’s menus. Opt for comfort-food style appetizers for cocktail hour and hearty dinner entrees. This slight change of selection will create a cozy feel to your winter wedding while getting to indulge in the seasonal flavors.
Elevate your decor with an ice sculpture that doubles as a work of art. Whether it’s a monogram or a symbol of the season, an expertly crafted ice sculpture adds a touch of sophistication to your reception.
Incorporating these subtle yet classy ideas into your wedding will ensure that the holiday spirit is present, but in a way that aligns seamlessly with the elegance of your celebration. We LOVE getting incorporate elements from each season, and are so excited for what the next years’ winter weddings will bring.
