Bring in The Combination of Blue and Velvet

This color introduced in your wedding day decor will offer some really great and lovely wedding photography opportunities to our professional and affordable wedding photographers.
Bring On The Branches For An Elevated and Authentic Winter Wedding Decor
We all know that winter is the season when the trees shed their leaves and buds off blooming branches, but rather than getting discovered by this pale change in seasons, you can consider using the branches for your wedding day floral decor inspiration. Believe us, the gestural, and modern nature of barely-covered branches is just as ethereal and incredibly romantic as loads of blooms. It will indeed elevate your winter wedding decor and will offer unique wedding photography opportunities to our creative wedding photographers. When you are planning your winter wedding and want it all chic and elegant, all you have to do is to stay seasonal when it comes to decor. Just keep in mind that a winter wedding should always feel festive, a moment of incredible joy and celebration, and abundant, but definitely not overly flowery. One of the best ways to bring those dry branches to your winter wedding decor is by creating a wedding arch of branches. Trust us, it will look breathtaking, especially when it will open up to an expansive and whimsical wintery landscape. It will make all your wedding guests feel like they are watching a romantic love story set in a perfect winter wonderland. In fact, our affordable wedding photographers will also have a great time capturing your wedding ceremony with such a lovely and wonderful wedding arch made of branches in the background. Well, just like always, you need to work with your florist and wedding planner to plan out this look and the correct vibe, and also to check out what will work in your wedding venue setting.
Bring in Balloon Decor For A Party On Mode
There is absolutely no denying that balloons and streamers are usually reserved for birthday bashes and other these kinds of celebrations. But they are used in the best possible way, they never fail to level up the fun at any wedding that coincides with the holidays, especially, if you have a wedding on New Year’s Eve or a wedding on Christmas. If by any chance you are planning to have a New Year Eve’s wedding, then trust us, a balloon decor will really look chic and incredible and will also set the overall mood of your wedding celebration. When done in a curated mix of metallics, like gold, platinum, and bronze, this lovely balloon decor will undoubtedly level your winter wedding game in no time.

To make the best of balloon decor for your winter wedding, all you have to do is to bring on the mylar fringe, some balloons, confetti, and of course some other elevated and thoughtful, yet quintessentially-party components, as together they will set the mood from moment one. This kind of decor will work best for an indoor wedding celebration, and our wedding photographers will love capturing the decor in the best of frames.
Let There Be Light and Some More Light
Winter and warm string lights decor always go hand in hand. And when you are planning a winter wedding, you can never go with lights and some fairy lights. Fairy light decor always makes the ambiance more romantic, incredibly inviting, and pleasing. If you are planning an intimate indoor wedding celebration, you can consider lighting up the room with lovely market lights and taper candles for a look that always feels as romantic as it does timeless. A beautiful fairy light decor always hearkens to the joyfulness and spirit of the lovely holiday season in full swing. Just a winter wedding lighting decor tip here, skip the colorful lighting and choose and go for warm yellow tone string lights. As we believe that there is nothing more stunning and gorgeous, inviting, and also damn sexy, when it comes to lighting a party, wedding reception dinner, or an intimate winter wedding gathering than loads of twinkling string lights and mini flames in natural shades of candlelight.
Go Bold and Go Green For Your Chic Winter Wedding
To have unique and also elegant winter wedding decor that will not elevate the overall setting of your wedding day but also give great photography options to our professional wedding photographer, try going green with the decor. Rather than covering every railing and table of your wedding day setting with floor-to-ceiling flowers, you can simply just skip the blooms altogether and go flawlessly green in full style. Consider draping willow, eucalyptus, redwood, and spruce in order to have a surreal and whimsical winter decoration that will not only feel inherently holiday but will also leave a fresh scent behind making the whole setting feel fresh and aromantic. If you are planning an indoor wedding celebration in the winter season, and the venue has stairwells, you can use garlands. They are just fine to work with greenery and will look incredibly pretty on the stairwells, along with on fireplace mantles, or down each table at the wedding reception. Greens can also be used as a fill-in as needed with moody objects and can also be combined with winter fruits and berries for a more whimsical setting. In fact, a pop of green will also look amazing in your wedding portfolio too. As it will bring out the best of winter vibes.
Introduced Warm, Cozy, and Happy Holiday Spirit
There is no better way to bring the holiday spirit to your wedding day than through the wedding day menu. If you ask us, there is nothing like tapping holiday favorites for your wedding menu and then using them as an added decorative moment to highlight the holiday spirit gracefully into your winter wedding. You can consider setting up a dark wood bar perfectly stocked with amber-toned spirits and also encourage wedding guests to pop it throughout the night for a craft cocktail of their own choice. Well for your winter wedding, we suggest you serve wintery riffs on classic cocktails, like the cinnamon rosemary old, for a perfect post-dinner nightcap, with dessert, or at the after-party.
Cue The Copper Cutlery For The Authentic Winter Wedding
Winter weddings do demand warmer tones as warmer tones and warmer settings make the whole ambiance cozy and inviting. So, apart from decoration, to keep things warm, always go for warmer metallic objects for your wedding day reception table setting and cutlery rather than going for all-time classic and elegant silverware. In place of going for silverware for the reception table setting, stick to the typical gold flatware, which is undeniably chic and extremely sophisticated. It is always a great option to go for something unexpected and out of the ordinary. Consider pairing it with winter greenery and natural textures, and we can assure you that copper and rust-toned flatware will surely feel elegant and of the moment. You don’t need to worry about your metals being consistent, you can always mix and match them to have a wonderful table setting for your winter wedding reception.

Now that you have selected to have your winter wedding at an outdoor wedding venue, you need to make sure that all your wedding guests are comfortable, safe, and warm.
