10 ways to wow at your winter wedding

22 Jun 2016

Make your winter wedding an unforgettable occasion for all the right reasons, with these 10 ideas from Eaves Hall

Promotional Feature

The prospect of snow, frost or sub-zero temperatures need not be an issue for your winter wedding; embrace the elements to celebrate the joys of the season with these 10 ways to wow from Eaves Hall - an exclusive-use wedding venue in Lancashire.

1. Ice sculpture

An ice sculpture at the entrance of the venue will really make a statement on the arrival of your wedding guests. Or, if you’re feeling extra celebratory, why not opt for an ice luge – containing a tipple of your choice?

2. Fireworks

Encourage your guests to venture outdoors with a fireworks display that will serve to illuminate a dark winter’s sky. Eaves Hall can incorporate fireworks as part of their various wedding packages.

3. Festive grotto

An outdoor space for guests to sit and enjoy the winter weather will create a focal feature on your wedding day. Add festive flair to a tipi or marquee by using outdoor heaters or fire pits, creating seating areas with blankets and cushions and decorate to your heart’s desire.

4. Snow machine

Hire a snow machine to guarantee a white wedding. Instead of a confetti exit, why not opt for snow? It may not be the real deal, but the pictures will look the part.

5. Christmas tree

Eaves Hall looks beautiful when it's dressed for Christmas. Tie the theme in to your colour scheme to save money on accessories. A Christmas tree provides the perfect place for guests to leave their wedding gifts.

6. Carol singers

Continuing the Christmas theme, carol singers will raise spirits and get guests singing along. Pick your favourite festive tunes or ask guests to submit their choices ahead of the big day.

7. Winter warmers

A winter wedding theme can be carried right through to your catering. Mulled wine, mince pies, cider and turkey sandwiches can be offered at various points throughout the day.

9. Seasonal themes

An all-white wedding or more colourful Christmas theme will create reams of character on the big day. From Narnia-inspired centrepieces and magical candle arrangements, to sprigs of holly, trails of ivy and candy cane favours, there are so many décor ideas for a winter wedding; take a look at Bride magazine’s dedicated Pinterest board.

10. Add an animal

Shire horses, huskies and reindeers all add a touch of yuletide to proceedings. Animals can be hired from various companies, so make sure you do your research and request proof of their relevant licenses and insurance policies.
