Transforming your Summer Wedding to Winter

May 11, 2020

We know a lot of you have had to make the change from a summer wedding to winter due to COVID-19 and while we wish we didn’t have too, we thought we would share some inside tips on how to transform your wedding day.

Wedding Dress

Speak with your seamstress/boutique to see if it’s possible to add on sleeves. So many dresses come with detachable sleeves these days that there may be an option for you to do this and then take them off for the evening. You can still have that dress you dreamed about but also able to stay warm during photos.

Ceremony

Summer weddings often times include an outdoor ceremony, and while you may not be able to incorporate that in winter, recreating a dreamy ceremony is still very much doable. Lots and lots (we mean tons) of candlelight will add the perfect touch to make your new indoor ceremony dreamy. Winter greenery such as pine also helps add that touch too!

Wedding Floral and Decor

A lot of spring/summer weddings come with color palettes in whites, greens, light pinks and yellows. You don’t have to entirely change your color palette but there are ways to adapt it to your new season. Maybe you were looking at a white and green scheme, something quite botanical. You can still have this as the basis of your color scheme but maybe look at adding darker tones in, very subtly. Berries are a great addition to a winter bouquet too. You could consider snow berries or brunia to keep with the theme light but festive. Lanterns and candlelight is another perfect way incorporate winter decor.
