Though winters in Austin may often be bright and sunny, couples who love the winter wonderland look for their nuptials can still get that snowy flair. From decorations to floral to fashion, it’s all about the look. Never mind the weather.
Let’s start with the fashion.
Winter weddings evoke images of draping furs, warming scarves and long gloves. Even when the weather never quite chills, your Austin winter wedding look still be achieved. Think simple fur stoles instead of a long coat, or a cunning fur hat that will look adorable in photos. Keep your color scheme light – white, of course, but also ice blues and pale pinks for a soft, snow-dampened effect. Visit an expert at your local bridal boutique such as Lace & Grace Bridal Boutique for more ideas and inspiration.
Floral? For winter? Groundbreaking.
Though we typically think of cascading bouquets and gardenia-packed centerpieces in the Spring, a winter wedding offers no less opportunity for stand-out, FOMO-inducing floral bouquets, centerpieces and large-scale decor. We love an all-white scheme for a winter wedding including your floral, though adding a pop of color will truly make the design shine. Local florists such as Foxglove & Grace can help you think beyond flowers to winter greenery, pine cones, and snow-frosted wooden details.
All about that venue.
Your venue serves as a canvas on which the sweeping strokes and delicate details are painted. A great decorator can change up nearly any space to meet your vision, but you’ll save on your decor line up if your venue has the bones you’re looking for. With winter weddings, the look and feel can be extremely varied. From timeless, elegant ballrooms such as Thistlewood Manor & Gardens and The Eileen at Branch Ranch that evoke a sense of snowy luxury, to rustic venues like Elm Pass Woods and Pecan Grove that draw guests into a wooded wonderland, your choices of venues in Austin are varied and beautiful.
Those sweet, sweet details.
When envisioning your winter wedding in Austin, your mind may immediately jump to venue and decor, but don’t forget the small details that really pull the look together. Work with your caterer and your bakery to create winter-inspired delicacies that are a feast for the eyes as much as the mouth. The color details of these creation can mirror the surrounding the decor to pull your entire look together.
