Winter Wedding Inspiration: How to Create a Wonderland
Destination Weddings need not be limited to the summer months. Columbia Beach Resort plays host to a variety of weddings, of all shapes and sizes, and in every season. Oft overlooked, peruse our winter wedding ideas below, and feel inspired at the endless possibilities this season brings in the creation of a wonderland wedding.
Christmas inspired ruby red, emerald green, and glimmering gold always make for an appropriately festive set-up, as do the traditional sparkling wintry hues of silver and cream. Of course, deep, rich tones, such as burgundy, plum, mocha, and starry-night navy make for a decadent backdrop, with frosted pastels, spanning dusty lavender to faded grey, lending of sophisticated magic.
Unbeknownst to many, winter is bursting with floral delights that may be utilised in creating standout bouquets and bloomy accents. From the beloved rose to the elegant tulip, grand lily, and exotic amaryllis, brides and grooms-to-be should enjoy exploring the options at hand.
Wedding Cake Flavours:
Indulge, indulge, and indulge some more! Nothing is too heavy for this season. From dark chocolate fudge cake with a cranberry buttercream filling, and spiced caramel cake with accents of orange, to coffee, bourbon and hazelnut cake, and the adventurous spiced Chai tea cake with honey French buttercream, simply let your taste buds’ imagination soar.
As to the wedding dress itself? Winter weddings beg for the indulgence of wearing a full, decadent ball gown, a dress with long sleeves, and/or an abundance of silvery embellishments. The groom, meanwhile, can experiment with a suit complete with textured accents, such as velvet or silk.
