November is almost here, which means it’s time to get ready for some beautiful winter weddings. We love seeing how wedding trends, decor and styles change throughout the seasons.
If you’re planning a winter wedding, here are some of the biggest winter wedding trends to look out for in 2017/2018.
Long Sleeves and Faux Fur
Practical as well as pretty, long sleeved wedding dresses are a huge trend this winter. Long sleeves give a beautiful, classic and timeless look, and they suit just about everyone! We particularly love lace sleeves with stunning detailing such as beading or embroidery. Finish the look off with some faux fur to keep you warm as you capture your wedding photographs in a winter wonderland. A faux fur stole or cape adds a little bit of luxury to your wedding outfit, and you can even keep the trend going indoors with faux fur rugs and throws as part of your decor.
Sequins and Jewels
Winter is the perfect time of year to add some glitz and glamour to your wedding. You could go subtle with tiny sequins or crystals dotted throughout your bouquet and flower arrangements. Or go all out, with sequinned table runners and place settings. Add a bit of sparkle to your bridesmaids with jewel-toned dresses (think deep shades of emerald green, sapphire blue and ruby red) accessorised with glittering jewellery and shoes.
It wouldn’t be a wedding without throwing confetti at the bride and groom as they leave the ceremony! But many couples are choosing to leave behind regular confetti (which can be full of toxic dyes and chemicals) and instead opt for eco-friendly confetti. Keep an eye out for confetti made from dried flower petals or biodegradable confetti made using natural dyes at weddings this winter.
From colour schemes to decor to bouquets, winter berries are a huge trend again this year. They look stunning as part of your floral arrangements, and can also be used to decorate tables, centrepieces and even garnish food platters or your wedding cake. Rich berry tones are also a great option for bridesmaid dresses and decor colour schemes at winter weddings.
Flower crowns are perhaps more associated with boho summer weddings, but they work wonderfully well during winter too. Rather than delicate pastel wildflowers, opt for wreath-like flower crowns with evergreen foliage and winter berries. Alternatively, you could opt for a super simple crown of baby’s breath flowers to look like a wintery dusting of snow.
Velvet is a huge winter wedding trend for 2017/2018. For a subtle touch of velvet, opt for accessories like velvet gloves, shoes or jackets. To add some texture and warmth to your decor, try velvet table runners, chairs or cushion covers. You could even add velvet ribbon to your bouquet or wedding cake decorations if you don’t fancy going all out with a velvet dress or suit!
