Used to bold tropical beach weddings? Bored with coral, peach and orange colors? Don’t want heat and sweat? Try something brand new and organize a winter beach or coastal wedding, it’s gonna be so delicate and tender that you will never regret!
Winter beach weddings are characterized by a calm and neutral color palette, beautiful snow and frost inspired details and gorgeous sea stuff like star fish, shells and driftwood. Dusty blue, dove grey, off-white, cream, white, aqua, turquoise shades will make your big day special. Let’s see how to decorate it right to create an amazing mood.
Choose grey and blue in all shades, add cream, white and silver. Create ethereal tablescapes and centerpieces using light fabric, candles, greenery, sea salt, corals, shells, star fish and maybe white flowers. Sticking to blue and grey isn’t obligatory, you can try grey and brown for a rustic feel and add driftwood and your favorite blue or purple flowers. Pay attention to glasses or crystal, they will reflect light and help to make an impression. To highlight that it’s winter you can create a faux fireplace mantel right on the beach and decorate it with nets and white flowers, then put some firewood under it to make a cool wedding backdrop.
Food is not only a treat, it’s a part of décor and your wedding pics. Serve fresh seafood and greenery for your guests, this is ideal for coastal weddings, and I’m sure that every your guest will be glad to have some fresh oysters – place them in ice creating a beautiful display. Rock adorable macarons and cupcakes decorated with pearls and corals. Try simple frosted wedding cakes decorated with pearls, sea glass, oyster shells and star fish, they may be real or edible, this way you’ll create more contrast between a simple textured cake and bold sea-inspired decor. Give your guests shell or sea glass candies.
Coastal bridal looks just take your breath away, especially winter ones! As it may be chilly, wear a long sleeve dress with a train. Rock a blue or ombre blue or turquoise dress; choose pearl bodice decor to highlight the season and the theme. Bridal separates are a hot trend in the wedding world, so you can try a tulle or lace skirt and a cool white or cream sweater to feel warm and cozy. Feel a costal goddess in a stunning gown or separate. Dress up your bridesmaids in corresponding cover ups to keep them warm, too.
