Your Winter Wedding Reception
Your winter wedding reception is one of the most important parts of your overall day, so you need to make sure you get it right.
There’s not really much room for error, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be quite creative and personalize the decorations so that they suit your own style.
The great thing about having a winter wedding is that there’s so much flexibility in terms of the themes and styles that you can use. Obviously you’re going to want to think about the theme that you have chosen, or need to choose, before you dive in and start making decisions about the decorations you are going to have at the reception.
Let’s take a look at some great tips to help with planning your reception:
1. The Focal Point
Choose something to use as the central part of your wedding reception. Having a focal point will give you something to base the rest of your decorations on so that you maintain a solid theme throughout. For example, you might want to make your wedding cake the focal point, which is what many people do. If you’ve got a particularly special cake that you want to draw attention to, then by all means do that.
However, why not think of something a bit more creative? How about a display of colored glass, or a floral centerpiece? These are all things that you can do, but you need to make a decision first before you start looking at other parts of your reception.
2. The Tables
Use winter wedding reception centerpieces on tables around the room. These should be in a similar style to the focal point that you initially chose except slightly smaller and low key. These should definitely include some flowers, along with anything else you’d like to include that fits with your theme.
3. The Formalities
Consider how formal you want the reception to be. If you’re going for something extremely formal and traditional, then you’re going to want to keep things simple and elegant. However, if you want something a bit more contemporary then you probably want to decide how you’re going to pull it off.
4. The Budget
Set a budget and stick to it. The problem with decorating your winter wedding reception is that it can get very expensive very quickly. If you don’t want to end up spending thousands of dollars on decorations, then plan ahead and try to do as much as you can yourself.
There are a number of things that you can do when you’re planning your winter wedding reception, but it all comes down to personal preference. For example, if you’re planning an outdoor winter wedding, there are a lot of things to consider that won’t apply to an indoor winter wedding. Try to use decorations that are both seasonal and also quite creative, the last thing you want is for your wedding to be seen as boring.
