The biggest winter wedding trends
Your wedding day is a real milestone in your life, and one you’ll remember forever. Months, if not years, of planning goes into it. As more and more of us choose to have our big day in the winter months, increasing focus is given to style and trends from the various industries involved. Read on for some of the hottest trends for weddings in the coldest months.
A second outfit for the bride has long been ‘a thing’, but why shouldn’t the groom be involved? Once the ceremony is over, we think there will be a big trend for grooms to update their outfit for the reception. Velvet’s everywhere at the moment, so what better way to stay on trend than to change to a velvet jacket for the party? Velvet is a great option for tying in all bridal party outfits with shrugs or shoes and the beautiful berry colours of this season work perfectly.
The bride can still be ‘edgy,’ and warm, with a white leather jacket – in keeping with the tradition of white, but right up to the minute on the style stakes.
Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting a big nod to the 80s with a non-white dress, but instead, we’re talking lights. Neon signs are great at any time of year, but especially in the winter when the nights are much longer. Match it to your colour palette and write your names, a favourite quote, or maybe even a hashtag.
Speak to your venue about your ideas and see what they can help with. There have been lots of winter weddings at the Speech House Hotel, an exclusive wedding hotel venue in the Wye Valley, and there are wonderful ways to dress the venue to make the most of the views and scenery year-round.
A ‘drip’ might not sound romantic, but allowing icing to drizzle over the top of a cake is popular right now, for cupcakes or tiered wedding cakes. Again, match it to your colours and make a statement that says you don’t take things too seriously.

Don’t worry too much about what everyone else is doing though – it’s your day, celebrate how you want!
