In honor of our Winter edition, we bring you all the details on planning the perfect Winter wedding. The great thing about Winter weddings is that you can go either way with your color scheme. You can either match the cool temperatures by using white, silver, light blue or violet; or you can go with a warm ambience – red or pink, and gold, for example.

Want to create a winter wonderland? White should be your primary color. Brides,
don’t you for a second think you won’t be able to stand out. You’re the bride! All eyes are on you. Create your winter wonderland with touches of silvers, light blues or violets, and candles. You want to keep everything crisp, simple, and fresh.

Depending on which color complement you wish to use with the white, for the purpose of this article, say you choose to do white and silver. Go with a white cake with silver embellishments.

To create the winter look, you have to carry it through all of the details from the bouquet to the centerpieces to the place cards. (Although in actuality, place cards don’t work in most Muslim weddings – we sit where we want or where we can, sort of like musical chairs)

You can still go all white and add a little bit of warmth with the candles. However, if you’re more interested in creating a warmer ambience, think red or pink and gold, roses and candles.

Just because its cold outside doesn’t mean the decor has to feel the same way. Give your guests a warm and inviting ambience. You can’t go wrong with red and gold (this is the go-to color for most Middle-Eastern and Southeast Asian Weddings.)

So here’s a tip to send you off with – especially if you live somewhere where it snows – get dressed early and get your photos taken outside. Although you may freeze, the photos will be worth it.
