21 ideas for the perfect winter wedding
(Picture: Marc Lester/AP)

Roaring log fires, Christmas trees and (if you’re lucky) a blanket of snow on your way to the altar. Who wouldn’t want a winter wedding?

If you’ve chosen a winter wedding for your big day, here are our favourite ideas to turn your nuptials into the perfect wonderland setting.

1. Add a jumper to your wedding outfit, à la Olivia Palermo.

Because a wedding dress doesn’t have to be a dress anymore… Olivia raised a few eyebrows back in June when she tweeted these adorable pics of her wedding get-up: a magical three-piece ensemble by Carolina Herrera.

For her wedding to model/hunk Johannes Huebl, Olivia teamed a cream jumper with white shorts and a full tulle skirt overlay. For footwear (and her something blue) she chose her faithful deep blue Manolo Blahniks. Who says bridalwear can’t be daywear? OP, we salute you.

2. Hand blankets out to your guests for the evening

Practical outfits for a winter wedding are few and far between, so cosy blankets will be a God-send to your guests after a couple of hours freezing their way through the ceremony. Pick throws in your scheme colours and bunch them into a crate for a rustic, welcoming look at the reception.

They can also come in handy for the photos if the weather takes a turn for the worse…

3. Choose ice queen make-up.

Pearly shades and a natural base make your skin gleam and looks stunning against a white dress. Ask your make-up artist to use silver liner in the corner of your eye and pearly shades on your lips and nails. Keep the rest of your make-up neutral.

4. Add snow to your dress.

You can’t guarantee the white stuff on your big day, but you can add some to your dress…

This creation by Zuhair Murad’s fall-winter 2014-2015 Haute Couture fashion colllection in Paris treads the line between princess and ice queen perfectly. The blackest-of-black eye make-up and minimal jewelry (only your engagement ring required) sets off the theme in dramatic style.

5. Give your guests hot chocolate or mulled wine instead of champagne when they get to the reception.

When you’ve just spent hours waiting in the cold, who wants a glass of bubbly to make you even colder? Rich hot chocolate or mulled wine in clear glasses adds an unusual touch, makes it easier for your guests during the wedding photos and lines your stomach, too.

6. Embrace the weather…

A winter wedding means few guarantees from Mother Nature but if the worst does happen, just go with it like Sheffield couple Richard and Katy did when the heavens opened during their ceremony.

Photographer Jon Dennis said: ‘I’m not really sure I have the words to correctly describe Katy and Richard’s wedding.

**MUST LINK TO www.s6photography.co.uk**....Sheffield newlyweds Richard Owen and Katy Lomas were left singing in the rain after a torrential downpour threatened to wreck their big day.....More than 100 guests were at the Greystones couple¿s ceremony at Wentworth Castle near Barnsley when the heavens opened.....Images of what happened next taken by Hillsborough wedding photographer Jon Dennis have since been viewed all over the world.....He said: ¿We were in a teepee which had cost £6,000 to put up and the rain started falling as they walked up the aisle.....¿It grew really, really loud ¿ so loud we couldn¿t hear the vows being said and they was plenty of laughter.....I¿m not really sure I have the words to correctly describe Katy and Richard¿s wedding. What started as a seemingly normal and lovely wedding, quickly turned into a wedding disaster, and then turned into probably one of the most special and memorable days I¿ll ever be part of. Maybe next time when you think a wedding nightmare is the flowers being the wrong colour, or the weather being ¿too hot¿, or hair being not quite so perfect¿.remember these two and how they embrace a real wedding disaster. People make a wedding, not the weather, the flowers, the photos, the food. The people. I have so much love for Yorkshire people right now.....WS01..

7. And if you’re really lucky… use the snow.

Who else gets this beautiful backdrop for free?

11. When it comes to winter weddings, blazers, high-collared shrugs, wrap-arounds and pashminas are your friends.

More than 650,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity. Julia Malakie/AP

12. Style your wedding cake with festive red and white.

Ask your cake designer for a bunch of roses elegantly styled on your cake, or grab the DIY versions from Etsy.

13. Plain white colour schemes are striking and stylish…

14. Play with lighting.

When the light goes in the evening, these tea light holders by daydreemdesigns on Etsy add some seasonal glamour.

Or if budget is no issue, create a winter wonderland using light and shadow:

15. Embrace the festive theme with snow, pine cones, foliage and white. Lots and lots of white…

16. Red and white not your thing? Experiment with colour by teaming pink and bright yellow with autumnal green and orange.

17. A longer sleeve on your dress adds an elegant extra layer.

18. Forget the flowers altogether and try these pine cone bouquets from Natureshelf on Etsy.

19. Go all-out traditional with your venue.

20. Take advantage of the cold and go for a stronger colour palette for your bridesmaids.

21. For favours, go for mini mince pies, Christmas stockings and oranges.

23 Christmas wedding ideas, from the ultimate dress to the most delicious cake
(Picture: Tarah Coonan Photography http://www.tarahcoonan.com)

Christmas is a magical time of year, so what better time to tie the knot? Christmas weddings are the perfect chance to show off your personality and show your guests the time of their lives (helped along by some festive cheer, of course).

Here are our favourite Christmas wedding ideas to help turn your nuptials into a day that no one will ever forget.

1. Go Christmas boho with a winter floral crown

We can’t get enough of this one from BeadsBroochesBridal on Etsy – it’s just too pretty! Not only do the red, white and silver look perfect together, but they’ll also work against most Christmas colour schemes.

2. Spread Christmas cheer in every corner

A good table decoration is all in the details and, when your big day takes place during the most decoration-friendly time of the year, what’s the point in holding back?

Give your guests something to talk about during those awkward few minutes at at the tables. Ginger Ray have some super-cute tiny Christmas hats to stick on glasses and champagne flutes, and their straws with flags are pretty perfect, too.

3. Take your style cue from a certain Mrs Claus

None other than Victoria Beckham wore a short cream shift with faux fur detailing earlier this year and, although we’re pretty sure she didn’t mean it to be, it is quite possibly the most perfect idea for a Christmas wedding dress that we’ve ever seen.

Sleek and much more subtle than the usual Christmas wedding dress ideas on the net, the original will set you back about £1,800. Thankfully though, both Topshop and Lavish Alice have similar versions for a much more wedding budget-friendly £55 and £48 respectively.

And the ultimate bonus? You can wear this again and again.

4. Embrace seasonal decorations

A Christmas tree is magical in December – your venue might have an impressive one up already. Ask your venue about their plans for decorations early so you can plan yours around theirs.

Christmas decorations are also very easy and inexpensive to buy if you need to keep costs down.

5. Who needs fruit cake when you’ve got yule log?

Who doesn’t love a bit of yule log? It’s a Christmas classic and much more fun than traditional cake. For an extra festive twist, ask for chocolate orange filling.

6. Celebrate with sparklers instead of confetti

Let your wedding guests light the way (and show off for your photos) with some sparklers. They look gorgeous in the photos, too.

7. Bring the outside, inside

Brides in the US and Canada may be able to count on clean white snow every day during the Christmas season, but here in the UK our seasonal weather is less than predictable. If you’ve been dreaming of the perfect winter scene for your festive nuptials, then go all-out inside your venue instead.

8. Christmas is all about hats…

Have some fun with your wedding photos and give your groomsmen bobble hats that match your colour scheme.

9. Have fun with festive nail art

You and your bridemaids’ nails are the perfect place to inject some Christmas cheer. Seasonal nail art is subtle and is even suitable for flower girls to make them feel part of the dressing-up process.

Here are some of our favourite designs – the Nailasaurus has a tutorial here.

10. Invest in a wonderful winter wedding coat

Just how perfect is this tweed bridal coat by Theia? Their Fall 2015 collection was inspired by snowcapped Altai mountains in Mongolia’s frozen Tundra, which explains why this coat looks so snuggly and warm but beautiful at the same time.

Perfect for a Christmas wedding…

11. Alternatively, try a classic white bolero

No longer a cover-up resigned to the nineties since the Duchess of Cambridge wore one to travel to Buckingham Palace following her wedding to Prince William, boleros have been given a new lease of life and are perfect for a Christmas wedding.

They can look a bit middle-aged (apologies to any middle-aged readers) so to avoid looking frumpy make like Kate and look for styles with 3/4 length sleeves and keep the length of the body at waist height. Stop it looking too handmade and go for a sleek off-white version in angora or cashmere.

12. Or a classic high-collared shrug

A gorgeous shrug is a Christmas or winter wedding bride’s best friend – not only is it a bridal classic, but it also stops you looking too purple in your photos. It’s a win win!

13. Go lights mad at the reception

There’s nothing like walking into a wedding reception to be greeted by a room full of tealights, fairy lights and candles. The softer light is ultra-flattering in photos (it covers a multitude of sins) and looks magical at Christmas.

14. Classic white and red works…

15. …but so does white, gold and silver, like these flowers by Jay Archer:

16. Wear a dress straight out of a fairy tale

Not content with making our wedding days feel like fairy tales, now there are tons of planners, dressmakers and companies willing to make them into actual fairy tales. Well, kind of.

Not only is this Alfred Angelo dress too pretty for words, it’s also based on Elsa’s dress in Frozen. The dress was part of the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings collection by Alfred Angelo Collection, which debuted in October.

Also among the fairy tale creations were Tiana from The Princess And The Frog:

17. Recreate a Christmas market

Go as low-key or as big as your budget will allow… hire a German band, serve pretzels at the reception (perfect for lining your stomach) or even set up a stall outside giving out bratwurst, roast chestnuts and mulled wine.

18. Treat your guests to favours in tiny santa sacks

20. Tiny festive food is filling and fun

How about mini mince pies or gingerbread biscuits for canapes?

21. Don’t forget the misteltoe in some unexpected places…

22. Have children write their Christmas lists and mail them to Santa

Try this crate from Vintage Apple Crates.

Vampires have become so popular recently! All those films including the Twilight Saga just blow our minds and make us think of eternal life and, of course, eternal love. If you are also crazy about vampires and decided to incorporate them into your big day, these ideas are for you. Vampire-inspired décor means everything red and black, from décor to outfits. I think that a black wedding dress can’t be more actual anywhere else than here, at a vampire wedding. Hint on blood with red rhinestones and food and cocktails; go for dark red roses everywhere and for your bouquet. Coffins, skulls and crosses will complete your vampire-inspired décor. Get more adorable ideas below!

A bridal company has unveiled a new wedding dress collection inspired by Disney’s most popular princesses.

Alfred Angelo today introduced its 2015 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings bridal collection, which includes dresses inspired by nine Disney princess characters, including a highly-anticipated bridal gown inspired by Elsa from the phenomenally popular animated musical Frozen.

The brand’s new collection is aimed at bride’s who are inspired by the whimsical fantasy of their favorite Disney films, but don’t want to walk down the aisle wearing something that looks like a design that has been taken straight from an animated movie.

The dresses, which have been inspired by Cinderella, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine from Aladdin, Tiana from the Princess and the Frog, Snow White, Rapunzel from Tangled, and Ariel from the Little Mermaid, as well as Elsa, are showcased in a beautiful photoshoot, which sees each dress captured in a setting befitting the princess it represents.

And while all of the gowns have been created in a specific color that the designer feels best

Elsa’s dress is showcased by a blonde model in what appears to be a frost-covered room. The model has her hair pulled into a braid just like that worn by the Frozen character, and the icy blue coloring of the strapless gown mirrors that of the dress worn by Elsa throughout much of the movie.

For Cinderella, the model wearing the gown has been captured standing in front of a horse-drawn carriage, like that featured in the animated movie, and the recently-released live-action remake, both of which were created from a pumpkin by Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother.

Sleeping Beauty’s Aurora wears a white and pale pink gown, and is pictured sleeping on a bed of rose petals, while Jasmine, from Aladdin, can be seen lounging on a day bed in an indigo jumpsuit with beaded embellishments on the top half.

The modern design comes complete with a detachable train, sheer back yoke and crystal beading that gives it a feeling of luxury which is befitting an Arabian princess.

Ariel, from the Little Mermaid, is – unsurprisingly – pictured walking along a beach, with the waves in the background. Her sea-green strapless dress is inspired by the color of the animated character’s mermaid tail, while the model has the same red hair as the original animated Ariel.

The flared gown has been crystal-beaded throughout to sparkle like treasures from the deep, while the dramatic skirt has been layered with glitter net to shimmer like sunlight on the waves.

The only 3D animation featured in the bridal line-up is Tangled, which was used to inspire the dress created in honor of its central character Rapunzel.

To showcase this particular design, the model can be seen posing in front of a stunning backdrop of floating lanterns, which, in the movie, are used to honor the birthday of the young Princess Rapunzel. In the shoot, the model wears the same purple shade showcased by Rapunzel throughout the film, while her hair is styled in the same floral braid as the character.

Princess Tiana, the first black princess ever to feature in a Disney animation and the star of the Princess and the Frog wears a green gown, no doubt inspired by the color of the amphibian that she transforms into not long after the start of the movie.

She can be seen posing up with a handsome suitor against a backdrop that reflects the bayou that Tiana and her frog-turned-prince travel through during the movie.

A real-life princess: The Tangled dress, inspired by Rapunzel (L), features the same purple coloring as the movie character’s gown, while Tiana’s ensemble is green, just like the gown she wears to marry her handsome prince (R)

Snow White’s gown is the same beautiful red as the apple offered up to her by the Evil Queen, while Belle’s gown, inspired by the gold ensemble she wears for a romantic dinner with the Beast, features a number of floral embellishments on the full tulle skirt.

Chief Creative Officer and family member at Alfred Angelo, Michele Piccione, said of the designs: ‘Along with the silhouettes and embellishments of each gown, color gives us another way to bring the magic of Disney’s imagined storytelling to life and allow brides to express their individuality on their special day.’

Thus far the new collection has received an overwhelmingly positive response on social media, with Disney fans the world over taking to Twitter and Instagram to praise the dresses – and to choose which one they would wear when their big day comes around.

‘I love Disney everything and so these dresses are perfect for me!’ one person wrote, before adding: ‘I’m definitely going for Cinderella.’

Another added: ‘This Frozen dress is actually perfect.’

snow queen

Good morning trulovers!  I have oodles of inspiration coming up for you this week and especially if you are newly engaged, you will find lots of ideas and style to help you work out your wedding theme.

Here is the UK it has been a rather grey and rainy January so far, so I am loving today’s Snow Queen Wedding Inspiration from the South of France shot by Malvina Photo.  Inspired by the Disney film Frozen, Malvina Molnar and Amandine from Be Lovely created a styled shoot showcasing the elegance of a winter wedding, full of texture and delicate detailing.  Not to mention creating a winter wedding and snowy atmosphere in the South of France is quiet a challenge!

It can be tricky to pinpoint the right colors and items because you can quickly go into something Christmassy or choose a wrong shade of blue that feels more tropical than winter.

Now the obvious problem was that it rarely snows in Southern France, so finding the right location with the best winter feeling was key. We contacted Ute, the owner of the Château de Roquelune, as I knew the castle had an elegant orangery which, with its large windows, would perfectly let the cold winter light in.  And what better way to say queen than in her own winter wedding castle.

Charlotte had just opened her bridal shop Olympe when we got in touch with her. She chose three amazing dresses by designer Sarah Seven and we went on to create the queen’s crown to evoke ice and sparkle.

Cyril, our florist, played a major role in creating the throne scene with Amandine who  created the stationary and some decorative items like the snow globes and the snow stars on the glasses. They chose an opulent  white and blue theme with an abundance of flowers and plants, and a style at once modern and festive for the stationary. When going for a white theme, it is important to play with textures: we used mat, reflective, sparkly, furry, soft or translucent items on the table to avoid any impression of monotony.

For the hair and make-up we decided to have two distinct styles: one by day and one by night, to give the bride a choice and also show that, yes, you can have two styles for your wedding! For the daytime, we chose romantic hairstyles with braids and we went a little bit over the top with accessories in the hair. Cyrille, our hairdresser, did an incredible job at creating sophisticated, but natural-looking updoes. For the evening, we did something more fashion-forward to go with the party mood! Finally, Caroline, the makeup artist,  created looks that can suit brides who like just to enhance their natural beauty and brides who want something more colorful.”

The shoot was created by local artists and if you feel the need for a theme tune listen to Ice Queen.
