Pink is an all year round popular wedding colour – using dusky pink, cool greys and mauve can really help create a more wintery feel to your winter wedding. Here I have put together a collection of lovely ideas to create a beautiful ‘winter pinks wonderland’.
Wedding invitations or save the date cards are often the first snippet your guests will get of your wedding so it’s important to get it right! With a wide range of beautiful stationery out there it is really hard to make that final decision. Ordering free samples can often help as they will allow you to see the shade of pink so you can determine if it’s right for your big day. Here I have selected ‘Pink English Roses’ by The Card Gallery which is a traditional design with a modern twist.
Team up pink and cream roses with a splash of greenery to create your perfect winter pinks bouquet. Use hypericum berries, pine sprigs, skimmia to add texture and diamantes to add some winter sparkle.Foliage and flower decorations can take a pale less colourful bouquet to another level if you feel it looks washed out. Greenery is particularly important for your floral displays as it can give your flowers a more seasonal feel.
Dusky pink is an elegant winter wedding colour, plus there are lots of choices of dusky pink styles to choose from. This particular one I came across on www.pinkbridesmaid.co.uk is available in 9 different shades of pink and will include inch wide straps for younger bridesmaids. Just remember that bridesmaids don’t have to be dressed the same. You could try dressing the little ones in a contrasting ivory dress which contains a hint of dusky pink like this one I found on www.justdresses.co.uk
Decorating your venue
Accessories help set the mood and help create a winter wonderland for your special day.
Try adding items like;
Tea lights in frosted glass holders to add warmth and romance.
Lanterns add a soft glow.
Tall statement centrepieces filled with pink roses, ivy, white branches and hanging crystals to reflect the candle light.
Ice carvings to bring the frosty outdoors inside.
Luxury white table cloths with dusky pink napkins fastened with a large diamante embellishment.
Follow your winter pinks theme through with matching table plan, table names, place cards, menus, favours, and guest book. Here are items from the ‘Pink English Roses’ range by The Card Gallery.
