Bring the Outdoors in for Winter Weddings
For those who relish the cold-weather months, choosing a winter wedding can be especially magical. Since it will most likely be indoors due to weather conditions, here is a round up of stunningly decorative ways to bring the outdoors in, adding dynamic and unxpected elements.
Flora & Fauna
Nature’s bounty is the perfect inspiration for decorative accoutrements, and thankfully there are a multitude of ways to “feel” the outdoors, even in a chilly setting. For subtle minimalists, go out on a limb and have your flowers arranged according to the ancient Japanese concept of Ikebana, which is said to uplift both your spirit and your environment. For dramatic entrances and jaw-dropping photo-ops, commission the work of a curtain of flowers or a moss-covered wall. For quaint vignettes, have someone craft intimate vertical gardens.
Earthy Table Runners
What better way to bring the outdoors in than a table garland made of herbs? From eucalyptus to sage, the options are endless and the textures and color variants are so complementary, it is a win-win. Bonus: the fresh, earthy scents!
Set the winter tone with a host of gorgeous, unexpected blooms for your bouquet. Sweet candytuft, lush dahlias, the ever-beautiful peony, even berries in season and dog wood branches can all add a taste of vibrant color and intrigue.
Natural center pieces
Inviting greenery and plant-based decor encompasses the essence of the outdoors in a very organic way. Even just adding an artfully-placed sprig of herbs to the table setting adds a delightful and thoughtful element.
