Ideas for your Winter Wedding

What better way to celebrate your winter wedding than to indulge in some classic winter sweet treats. Hot chocolate, toffee apples and many more! We highlight the nation’s most loved winter warmers for wedding inspiration.

There’s nothing quite like a winter wedding. Just think of all those twinkling fairy lights and candles as you dine with your guests to celebrate your special day. While the setting is romantic, it also needs to be warm and cosy. Chilly guests will lead to an equally frosty atmosphere! Take a look at these winter warmers, certain to ensure everyone stays cosy no matter what the temperature is outside!

Let’s start with the ceremony. If you’re braving the outdoors, or perhaps tying the knot in a venue that isn’t particularly cosy, provide blankets for your guests to place over their knees. Happy guests need cosy toes!

Continue with shawls at your wedding reception, especially if you plan to take photographs outside. Neutral colours will be popular with your guests, co-ordinating with their outfits!

For exceptionally chilly days, gloves are a must. Most guests won’t bring them, but will thank you for them as they venture outdoors with a glass of Champagne in hand! Provide different colours and sizes and adorn with nametags for your guests to take home.

The more quintessentially British wedding might choose tea instead of coffee. If you’re hosting afternoon tea, make sure it looks as good as it tastes and offer a choice of leaf!

Of course, we can’t have hot chocolate all evening. For a more adult drink, move on to cocktails. This coconut cream martini looks the part and will certainly be warming!
