Wonderful Floral Winter Wedding Ideas

Winter is an incredible time of the year to tie the knot, so it’s no wonder that the chillier months are becoming an increasingly popular season to say ‘I Do’. There are so many ways to create a magical Winter wedding and there are also a number of different colour schemes to choose from. Today we’re looking at how you can use floral detailing to create an enchanting wedding day that still fits in with the season. We’re focusing on a traditional festive colour scheme, including garnet and emerald. Grab a cosy coffee and settle down to read our favourite floral Winter wedding ideas…

Let’s take a look at your Winter wedding bouquet. An abundance of greenery is an absolute must-have: sprigs of cedar, fir and eucalyptus will add bulk to your bouquet. Work in velvet red roses, burgundy anemones and a handful of Winter berries. Tie a silk red ribbon around the stems of your blooms for an extra elegant touch. Match the style of your bouquet to the groomsmen buttonholes. They’ll look handsome pinned to a thick tweed or woollen jacket – the perfect choice of suit for the colder months. Struggling to pick your favourite Winter flowers? Here at Lily & Lavender we adore working with blooms, and we can help you to find the perfect florals to make all of your bouquet dreams become a reality.

Flower crowns are always a popular choice for Spring or Summer celebrations, but they’re a beautiful way of incorporating Winter blooms into your overall look. You could use a few flowers that are featuring in your bouquet for a look that is completely coordinated and have your bridesmaids and flower girls to wear smaller versions of your bridal flower crown.

We’ll move onto your ceremony décor. Have you ever considered creating a floral ceremony backdrop? They are super effective and create a special place for you to exchange your vows. A fir backdrop would look stunning hanging from the wall of your ceremony space, but we also love the idea of adorning a wooden archway with your favourite Winter blooms. You could even line your ceremony aisle with sprigs of fir and cedar, or alternatively tie them to the end of the aisle pews. Lily & Lavender can assist with the design of your wedding venue decor, so if you need a helping hand putting together the finer details don’t fret!

Welcome your guests to your wedding venue with a traditional Winter wreath hanging from the doorway. Wreaths look wonderfully festive and they also make for fab photograph props too! Why not hang some smaller wreaths from the Bride and Groom chairs as alternative chair covers?

A Winter wedding venue needs to look warm, cosy and inviting. You can transform even the simplest of venues with the addition of a few floral and foliage garlands. Wrap them around the bannisters of a grand staircase or line one along a roaring fireplace. You can also use them to decorate your table plan, rustic ladders or wedding chairs. The options really are endless!

It’s time to think about how to style your Winter wedding tables using flowers and foliage as your inspiration. If you’re having traditional round tables for your wedding day, a large vase brimming with luxurious red blooms and greenery will look beautiful. However, a floral garland lined along the length of a long wooden trestle table will look equally stunning. Work in scented red candles in golden holders for a romantic glow. When it comes to place settings, a simple white plate can be enhanced by tying a handful of berries to a napkin with twine ribbon.

It’s the simple details that often have the most impact at weddings. Opt for stationery with garnet red floral illustrations and dark green envelopes – it’ll really set the scene for your big day.

Thanksgiving is here! What better way to celebrate this fabulous holiday than with some fabulous decorating ideas? From chic metallic tablescapes to delicious Thanksgiving favours, we’ve got it sorted. Read on and indulge in some festive fun…

Celebrate Thanksgiving with cute place cards – they double up as favours and place settings. Ask your guests to write a few things that they’re grateful about and share your suggestions around the table. It makes for a lovely game between courses and can work as a fab ice-breaker.

You can never go wrong with a chic white and gold tablescape – it’s the perfect combination of elegance and glamour. Style your Thanksgiving table with white and gold pumpkins in various sizes. They’ll look striking lined along the length of your table. Pumpkins are a wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving tablescape – especially if you’re serving up pumpkin pie for pudding! You could use a sequin gold table runner for an extra sprinkle of glitter. Opt for white plates teamed with golden cutlery for a fabulous finishing touch.

Add a rustic touch to your table with a hessian tablecloth or runner. Work in lots of flowing greenery and foliage to transport your guests to the countryside – even if you’re celebrating in the city!

Provide your guests with miniature jars of homemade jam, chutney and pickle. It’s the perfect party favour for your guests and it’s a thoughtful reflection of the traditions behind Thanksgiving. You’ll definitely be the host with the most!

Dreaming of a woodland-style Thanksgiving tablescape? Then a dried moss table runner is a fab fit for your table décor. Line along the length of your table and nestle in a few antique gold candles and some small pumpkins. You could also opt for rustic wooden tree slices as alternatives to place mats.

Give your place settings a pop of colour with some Thanksgiving table stationery. A watercolour menu is the perfect way of giving your guests a clue about what you’re going to serve up! Opt for place names in the same design for a table with the ‘wow’ factor.

What could be prettier than a burgundy and blush Thanksgiving tablescape? This gorgeous colour combination fits in beautifully with the season while looking oh-so-elegant. Tall burgundy candles in golden holders will add a dash of decadence to your table décor, while delicate blush blooms will look stunning in golden vases. Finish the look off with pale pink napkins tied with a burgundy ribbon. Perfection!

Copper is the metal of the moment. Whether it comes to Thanksgiving tables, wedding themes or Christmas parties – this chic metallic is everywhere and we love it. It’s incredibly easy to decorate your table with copper elements: simply opt for copper charge plates, metallic candle holders and even copper tolix chairs. Your Thanksgiving celebration will look ultra-stylish, trust us!

Add extra impact to your Thanksgiving celebration with a chic cocktail bar-cart. Create a self-serve drinks station with flavours that fit in with the season – your guests will love this idea!

We’re suspect you’re going to be serving a few pumpkin pies at your Thanksgiving celebration, so why not create a dessert table? You could create a mixture of pies, fruitcakes and a bowl of candy that your guests can help themselves too. Match your dessert table to the style of your main table décor.

What Do You Mean My Children Are Not Invited?!?

Today we tackle the touchy subject of wedding etiquette and children.  This came up with one of our couples who cannot decide whether to allow plus-ones and children.  For this couple, the budget is tight and their venue can only accommodate a certain number of guests. So how does one tactfully tell guests to leave the ‘apples of their eyes’ at home? (more…)
