7 Winter Treats To Add To Your Wedding

Winter weddings can be magical and in this post we will explore how to add that extra magic. You see a wedding is a once in a lifetime celebration, it should feel unique and different from other parties, it should have a sense of luxury that represents something extremely special is happening. It’s not always the big things that create this sense of occasion and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It’s often the small touches that add that je ne sais quoi. If your big day is in the winter months then why not use this to your advantage, read on to find out how…

Christmas Trees

Nothing says winter like a Christmas tree, you can either have one grand tree that says decadence and luxury or smaller trees as part of the decor plan, perhaps even incorporated into the table centres. However you choose to use this age-old decoration, Christmas trees evoke the magic of winter that we feel as children, what better way to treat your guests.

Hot Chocolate

Treat your guests to something to warm them up from the inside out. You can either greet them as they come into the reception as an alternative to wine or perhaps provide a hot chocolate bar. If you want to add a little kick to the hot chocolate you could add Bailey’s, caramel vodka or orange and rum.

Crystal Bouquet

A crystal bouquet is both unique and wintery. The silver and white colouring combined with the glitz and glam of sparkly crystals screams decadent, luxury and winter! They are often made with a combination of crystal silver brooches, satin, chiffon, pearls and lace. The best thing is you will be able to keep the bouquet forever.


When the cold wind blows and Jack Frost visits, he leaves his sparkling trademark. Ice twinkles in the winter sun and brings a little shimmer and shine to the darkest months. Capture this magic in your wedding with sequins, just like ice, they catch the light and gleam, bringing a little glam to your winter occasion. You can use sequins anywhere from the attire to the tablecloth and everything in between. Make your wedding sparkle and give your guests a treat.

Bring The Outside Inside

When looking for winter treats you don’t have to look any further than outside your front door. The gifts from nature are beautiful and can be used in many different ways at your wedding. Consider how berries can be incorporated into the decor or even a flower crown for the bride. Think about using evergreen stems or pine cones as part of the table centres. Have a moment to think about how the seasonal gems could be used in the bouquet. With so many incredible resources available at our fingertips it would be a shame not to utilise them.
