The last few weeks have seen a real surge in Winter Wedding bookings so we thought we’d bring you some top tips to help you plan your winter wonderland day!
If you can’t go outside, or just don’t want to in the cold wet winter, really make the most of the inside of your venue. Check what decorations they may have already as there will no doubt be some Christmas decor somewhere, and perhaps tailor your decor to match. We have a wonderful Christmas Tree which more than fulfills the brief, and makes our Great Hall feel all that more homely.
2. Colour Schemes
Our State Dining Room has the perfect winter colours – with gold decor and burgundy curtains, it is a winter colour scheme dream! Choose a colour which will go well with your winter decor, and your bridesmaids dresses to create that perfect wintery feel.
3. Food and Drink
When we start thinking about Christmas here at the castle, the first thing on most of our minds is Christmas Pie! There are lots of hearty options for wedding food, from a roast dinner to a chunky stew. Team them up with some mash and gravy and you have the perfect heart-warming meal to fill all your guests up.
And don’t forget the mulled wine! The perfect addition to any winter drinks reception.
4. Bridal Dress
The one thing you and your bridesmaids don’t want is cold shoulders and wet feet! Think about the style of your dresses and footwear. There are lots of options to keep you warm from lace sleeves to furry boleros and closed-toe shoes.
Even without the summer sun, it is still possible to have a beautiful wedding day. Choose a venue which wows you from the inside and out, and you just can’t go wrong.
