Unleash the inspiration of the winter wonderland into a magical whimsical wedding reception. Capture the beauty of the wintery scenery and include those shimmering touches into your winter wedding with creative ideas from your table setting to your banquet room décor.
When the sun is shining and everything covered in snow, the colors of white and blue speaks in volume when envisioning your palette. Create breathtaking scenery at your wedding reception the moment you and your guests walk into to the room.
Stagger small 4-6 feet white birch trees wrapped with white or blue lights around the walls or create an entrance way with the trees creating a grand entrance. At the end of the aisle of trees, project the name of the bride and groom with a gobo projection on the floor.
Set up a large Christmas tree and decorate in your color scheme. Have the tree in an area to capture the perfect pictures throughout the reception.
Replacing the lights on the trees, add crystal or acrylic icicles dangling from the branches, for the DIY bride, have kids make cutout snowflakes to hang, with lights on the trees, insert a light in the snowflake cutouts.
Give your event the look of snow when used on trees, table centerpiece decorations, or use mirrors on the tables and spray snow around the edges, if candle centerpieces are your choice, spray foam on cylinders for floating candles or on tealights.
Add a splash of green and red to the chair sash using mistletoe with berries, or hang an ornament on the back of the chair sash. Go a step farther with the mistletoe and hang over the bride and groom’s table, or create an area just for this occasion for everyone to capture the moments.
Give your guests a taste of winter by giving them a winter theme favor. With winter giving us the beauty of white snowflakes, give your wedding guests snowflake design bottle stopper or glass coasters representing a wintery delight. Another idea is Christmas tree glass ornaments used as placecard holders, after the event, guests can display on their tree and remembering your wedding day. Snowflake designed bookmarks is ideal as they can be used not only to mark their favorite page, but can also be displayed on their holiday tree or centerpiece decoration.
Create winter colors with the addition of crisp blue lighting splashing the walls of reception hall or create a magical illusion of falling snow with projection of sparkling LED lighting. Combine both and give your event a dazzling winter wonderland effect.
Table centerpieces are a key element in your wedding décor and candlelight is essential to a wintertime theme promoting a warm and romantic touch. Implement floating candles in staggering height cylinders clustered in the center of the table with nestle berries inside the candle cylinders. Set the candles on frosted mirrors and wrap the bottoms with holy and berries to embrace the moment.
Another centerpiece idea is to use a decorated tray filled with holiday ornaments.
