Winter offers plenty of wedding design ideas to work with, even if the event will take place in a tropical climate like Hawaii’s. Learn how to incorporate seasonal trends as well as deal with cool or rainy weather with the trends below.
3 Creative Winter Wedding Ideas
1. Cozy Lighting
Even if you’re in Hawaii, there can be grey skies and cool winter rains. Fairy lights, hanging lanterns, and candles will add a feeling of coziness to the wedding and reception when the weather is chilly or if you’re having an evening event.
Check with the venues if candles are allowed. If not, opt for realistic-looking, battery-powered candles instead. Also, test out strands of lights ahead of time to make sure all are working properly.
2. Winter Color Palettes
Make the most of jewel tones, warm reds and burgundies, or stunning white monochromatic color schemes for a winter wedding. Metallic accents such as gold and silver set off rich winter tones as well; incorporate them into favors, tableware, flowers, and even your gown or headpiece.
3. Comfort Food
Cool weather calls for delicious comfort food, so plan the catering menu to include seasonal favorites such as rich prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes, and a creamy squash soup or lobster bisque.
The cake can reflect the season as well: consider fruit cake, gingerbread, or cinnamon and chili-infused chocolate for flavor options. A coffee or hot chocolate station can be festive and warming too, especially if you offer liqueurs such as peppermint schnapps or a cinnamon whiskey to spice it up.
